Webinterface Catalyst 4506?


Is there a webinterface on the supervisor engine IV? So I have a nice overview of al my ports and status of it, or do I need to purchase software for that?

Re: Webinterface Catalyst 4506?

Webinterface is supported from 12.1(12c)EW. I suggest that you upgrade to 12.1(19)EW. To enable embedded CiscoView on SUP III/IV for Cat4000/4500 running IOS:

1. Download the additional tar file (e.g. Cat4000IOS.v4-0.tar) containing

the embedded CiscoView from the link below and put it on a TFTP server.

2. Download the tar file and extract the components into the flash device

chosen using the following command

Switch#archive tar /xtract tftp:/// bootflash:cv

(Note: the 'cv' after the flash device name IS REQUIRED for IOS to

recognize that files associated with embedded CiscoView are present)

3. Configure SNMP RO and RW community strings. The default is public for

RO and private for RW. This has to match what is typed in when the

web-based GUI is coming up.

Switch(config)#snmp-server community public ro

Switch(config)#snmp-server community private rw

4. Enable IP HTTP Server on the switch

Switch(config)#ip http server

5. Verify that the embedded CiscoView is properly initialized by the IOS

using the following 2 commands. If IOS does not recognize that the

embedded CiscoView is installed, you will see NO OUTPUT.

Switch#show ciscoview package

Switch#show ciscoview version

6. Open the browser from you PC and type in the IP address of the switch in

the URL. To access the web-based GUI, click on the link "Cisco View

Device Manager" and a window will pop up loading the java content.

Like for any Catalyst platform, you will need to have java-plugin

installed on your PC as well. Check the readme file associated with the

tar image for more detail on the requirement.
