I'm having an odd issue with a Catalyst 6513 and its http interface. The http interface has been working just fine in the past, however it just times out now in the browser. Now here is the interesting part. If I'm logged onto the switch console when I try to browse to it, I get the following http segment echoed on the console:
HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized
Date: Wed, 17 Jun 2009 13:20:30 GMT
Expires: Thu, 16 Feb 1989 00:00:00 GMT
WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="access"
<HEAD><TITLE>Authorization Required</TITLE></HEAD><BODY BGCOLOR=#FFFFFF><H1>Authorization Required</H1>Browser not authentication-capable or authentication failed.</BODY>
This seems to me to be really odd behavior and I was wondering if anyone else had ever seen it before.
I have already disabled and enabled the http server to no avail. I'm getting ready to fail the supervisor over to see if that clears it up, but I would rather not have the seconds of down time (it's our core network switch) if I can help it.
Any information anyone has about this will be greatly appreciated.
