I'm a learning network dummy:
We have a MCS 7800 series running 5.03 on a standalone training network.
I have it direct connected to a 2924 switch, the NIC and switchport show green. The switch is going to a 2800 router. I have a computer plugged into the switch, IP 172.16.11.19 255.255.255.252.
I assigned the MCS 172.16.11.28, but no matter what IP I use I can't ping it or log into it.
Tested all the cables.
Show Network eth0=
ip add 172.16.11.28
ip mask 255.255.255.252
link detected: no
mode: auto enable, unknown! (255), N/A
options timeout:5 attmepts:2
What silly mistake(s) am I making?
(also the front panel of the MCS has a yellow exclamation light and the HD light is also permanently yellow..?)
