Management Port Use

Hello All

I am in rommon mode in 4948.

I am trying boot it from my laptop via mgmt port.I set the IP in rommon mode

10.0.0.2 laptop is 10.0.0.1 with 24 subnet

Physical link exists but they could not ping each other so I could not start up the device from tftp server

Thx for help

Re: Management Port Use

Hi,

With 4500s/4900s, they do not always respond to ping in rommon mode, so you will not be able to tell whether it's working or not.

Just make sure you have an arp entry in your laptop for the switch, and that the firewall on your laptop is turned off.

Also with these switches, you sometimes need to put in a default gateway, even if it's on the same local subnet.
