Port VLAN ID (PVID): 4095
VLAN 4095—Management VLAN 4095 isolates management traffic within the HP 1:10GbE switch.
VLAN 4095 contains only one member port (port 18). No other ports can be members of
Interface 256—Management interface 256 is associated with VLAN 4095. No other interfaces can
be associated with VLAN 4095. You can configure the IP address of the management interface
manually or through Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP).
Gateway 4—This gateway is the default gateway for the management interface.
STG 128—If the HP 1:10GbE switch is configured to use multiple spanning trees, spanning tree
group 128 (STG 128) contains management VLAN 4095, and no other VLANS are allowed in STG
128. The default status of STG 128 is off.
If the HP 1:10GbE switch is configured to use Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol, STG 1 contains
management VLAN 4095.
To access the HP 1:10GbE switch management interface through the Onboard Administrator:
Use the Onboard Administrator internal DHCP server, through Enclosure-Based IP Addressing
Use an external DHCP server. Connect the Onboard administrator and the HP 1:10GbE switch to
the network, and disable Enclosure-Based IP Addressing.
Assign a static IP interface to the Onboard Administrator and to the HP 1:10GbE switch
management interface (interface 256).
Connecting through the console port
Using a null modem cable, you can directly connect to the switch through the console port. A console
connection is required in order to configure Telnet or other remote access applications. For more
information on establishing console connectivity to the switch, see the HP 1:10Gb Ethernet BL-c Switch
Connecting through Telnet
By default, Telnet is enabled on the switch. Once the IP parameters are configured, you can access the
CLI from any workstation connected to the network using a Telnet connection. Telnet access provides the
same options for a user and an administrator as those available through the console port, minus certain
commands. The switch supports four concurrent Telnet connections.
To establish a Telnet connection with the switch, run the Telnet program on your workstation and issue the
telnet command, followed by the switch IP address:
telnet <switch IP address>
Connecting through Secure Shell
By default, the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol is disabled on the switch. SSH enables you to securely log into
another computer over a network to execute commands remotely. As a secure alternative to using Telnet
to manage switch configuration, SSH ensures that all data sent over the network is encrypted and secure.
For more information, see the "Secure Shell and Secure Copy" section later in this chapter. For additional
information on the CLI, see the HP 1:10Gb Ethernet BL-c Switch Command Reference Guide.
