The following types of networked connections are supported on a 3810M Switch:
Out-of-band networked connection through the dedicated Management port
To use: Connect an RJ-45 network cable to the Mgmt port to manage a 3810M Switch
through Telnet from a remote PC or UNIX workstation.
To use this port, the switch must have an IP address. IP settings can be configured through
a Console port connection (see
or automatically from a DHCP/Bootp server.
A networked out-of-band connection through the Mgmt port allows you to manage data
network switches from a physically and logically separate management network.
For more information, refer to the "Network Out-of-Band Management (OOBM)" appendix
in the Management and Configuration Guide at http://www.hpe.com/networking/support.
In-band networked connection through a data port on the switch
To use: Connect a PC or UNIX workstation with a VT-100 terminal emulator directly to a
switch data port. Then access the switch via Telnet from the workstation
To use Telnet, the switch must have an IP address. IP settings can be configured through
a Console port connection (see
or automatically from a DHCP/Bootp server.
For more information on in-band and out-of-band networked connections for switch
management, refer to
Management and Configuration Guide for your switch at
support.
NOTE:
A 3810M switch can simultaneously support one out-of-band serial console session
through the console port and up to six in-band Telnet/TCP (networked) sessions through the
dedicated Management port or data ports on the switch.

Using the IP Address for Remote Switch Management

The switch's IP address can be used to manage the switch from any PC on the same or on a
different subnet as the switch. In a networked (in-band or out-of-band) connection, you can use
a Telnet session or a standard web browser to manage the switch.

Starting a Telnet Session

To access the switch through a Telnet session, follow these steps:
1.
Make sure the switch is configured with an IP address and that the switch is reachable from
the PC that is running the Telnet session (for example, by using a Ping command to the
switch's IP address).
2.
Start the Telnet program on a PC that is on the same subnet as the switch and connect to
the switch's IP address.
3.
You will see the copyright page and the message "Press any key to continue". Press a key,
and you will then see the switch console command (CLI) prompt, for example:
Aruba 3810M#
Enter help or ? to see a list of commands that can be executed at the prompt. Entering any
command followed by help provides more detailed context help information about the command.
Entering any command followed by ? displays a list of options that are available at that point in
the command entry.

Starting a Web Browser Session

The 3810M Switch can be managed through a graphical interface that you can access from any
PC or workstation on the network by running a web browser and typing in the switch's IP address
