  • Help with Cisco Switch bought on craigslist

    First of all sorry for the post in the wrong category.

    I was wondering if someone could tell me how to initialize a used switch I bought from someone on Craigslist.
    I ran a network scanner to find a ip address but I couldn't see any IP found.
    What I've been trying to do is the instruction from CIsco web site.

    However, I have no luck to find any IP address,
    If I get a console cable, do I still need to know IP address?
    I'm using Win server 2003 to use Hyper Terminal because Vista won't support HyperTerminal.

    Please give me some tips, I cannot practice any CCNA labs, and exam date is coming soon.
