  • 3Com 2952 SFP - How to enable the web interface ?

    Hi Everyone,
    Does anyone know how to enable the web interface on these switches ?

    I can login via CLI from console port but would really like to be able to use the web interface. I must say that i've inherited these switches from a previous employee and there is little to no documentation as to how they were configured at install. They are currently part of the production environment.

    I've used

    _cmdline-mode on

    To enable the system view and the extended menu's but the web option appears to be missing from the menu.

    Copy and paste of switch summary and full menu below, as you can see there is no Web option.

    Current boot app is: flash:/S2900-CMW520-R1101P10.bin
    Next main boot app is: flash:/s2900-cmw520-r1101p10.bin
    Next backup boot app is: NULL

    Never used those switches and tried looking for a configuration guide but was unable to find one. Seems like documentation on these switches is hard to come by.

      I've not been able to find much in the way of documentation either. Hopefully someone will have used one and be able to help

        I've now got the web interface working on my 3Com switches.

        From the extended command line i created a new local user, gave them management access and Telnet.

        I could then login to the web interface without any problems

        From the console:

        _cmdline-mode on
        Password: 512900

        From the prompt type system-view

        >local-user (username)
        (username)>password simple (password)
        (username)>authorization-attribute level 3
        (username)>service-type telnet
        (username)>service-type lan-access

        Now if you try and login with the new user you should find you have management access to the web interface.

        I hope that will save the next person some of the time its taken me to find the details.
