I have a Catalyst 2924XL. Is this switch supposed to have a default IP address to use to telnet into and for the CiscoWorks 6 software. I cant even login to the switch thru telnet using the DB9 connector to console or over the network. It just hangs there with the cursor blinking. Ciscoworks cant find it or doesnt see it. Im merely trying to get in to update the software and enable the web based interface for further configuration.
Does this switch act as a DHCP to the other machines on my small network curious as I already havea redhat linux server running a strong firewall and dhcp on it in front of the switch connected to a cable modem.
Basically what I need to know is there a default name used for this switch and a default ip already set in it. And why arent I seeing is come up anywhere. Ive even checked the active leases on the DHCP to see if it has issued an ip to the switch but it hasnt. I have another server running the SNMP on it and Whatup gold finds it and maps it no problem but IT WILL NOT SEE THAT SWITCH OR THE IP FOR IT Ive got almost every document put out by CISCO and they are rather.... lacking.
The console port should always work. If it doesn't, check your cables, your speed settings (9600,8,N,1) and your Terminal Emulation (not HyperTerm I hope) When you reboot the switch, you should see some output from the console. If you don't and you are certain that everything else is OK, you appearently have a defective console port.
This is not a very common problem though and when you have a NEW switch(?) this is unlikely. Through the console you can assign an IP adress and configure the settings for communication with SNMP devices.
One last tip: Be very careful when upgrading the software! This should better be done by someone who knows the ins and outs. Attempts to upgrade your switch can even render the box inoperative.
I do not remember wether or not 2924xl's do but some switches auto detect the speed of the console port when they are powered on. If you do not already have a console connection (via hyperterminal, for instance) then the switch will pick a speed at which to set the console port. It is a wise idea to power off the switch, set up your console connection, and then power on the switch. Not only will you see the boot process, but it will detect and set your console port to be 9600. If you are unsure on how to upgrade your switch software, then I would suggest getting help. I would also suggest for begginers to use cisco's config maker.
Now when I reboot the switch with the console and cable connected, should I have all other machines unplugged from the front ports on the switch or does it matter. Ive used the hyperterminal on Win2K but that doesnt seem to be working. I also have CiscoWorks 6 will this work or am I going to have to config it with telnet first and then enable the web based admin.
To simply answer your question.......there is no default name or ip address assigned to the switch. You can use the console port and hyperterminal to set the IP address of the switch ....... the link below describes how to do this
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
