Hello Ravi

Quite an old switch , isnt it !!! Anyway, See if this URL helps you:

http://cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps607/products_installation_and_configuration_guide_chapter09186a008007d32f.html#xtocid2617110

It is basically a configuration guide for the 2900 XL series switches.

Hope this helps.. all the best.. rate replies if found useful..

Re: Setting up a password for a switch web interface?

Hi!

Are you trying to enable and set username/password for accessing switch through the web-interface? I hope I understood you correctly.

Firstly you need to enable the switch for web-interface.

Enter this command --> ip http-server

Then you can login using the username [admin] and the enable password.

If you want to set some other username for this purpose, then enter this command --> username

Then you can login using the username and the enable password. By default only level 15 access is enabled for the web-interface.

For a lil more have a look at the following URL --> http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk59/technologies_configuration_example09186a0080178a51.shtml#local

Hope this helps...

Regards,
