The following example shows how to manually configure an IP address on the switch:
Configure an IP interface for the Telnet connection, using the sample IP address of 220.127.116.11.
The pending subnet mask address and broadcast address are automatically calculated.
>> # /cfg/l3/if 1
>> IP Interface 1# addr 18.104.22.168
Current IP address:
New pending IP address: 22.214.171.124
Pending new subnet mask:
. . . . . . . . . . . .
>> IP Interface 1# ena
If necessary, configure up to two default gateways.
Configuring the default gateways allows the switch to send outbound traffic to the routers.
>> IP Interface 5# ../gw 1
>> Default gateway 1# addr 126.96.36.199
>> Default gateway 1# ena
>> Default gateway 1# ../gw 2
>> Default gateway 2# addr 188.8.131.52
>> Default gateway 2# ena
Apply, verify, and save the configuration.
>> Default gateway 2# apply
>> Default gateway 2# save
>> # /cfg/dump
Using the Browser-based Interface
By default, the Browser-based Interface (BBI) protocol is enabled on the switch. The Browser-based
Interface (BBI) provides access to the common configuration, management and operation features of the
switch through your Web browser. For more information, see the HP 1:10Gb Ethernet BL-c Switch
Browser-based Interface Reference.
The BBI is organized at a high level as follows:
Configuration—These menus provide access to the configuration elements for the entire switch.
System—Configure general switch configuration elements.
Switch ports—Configure switch ports and related features.
Port-based port mirroring—Configure mirrored ports and monitoring ports.
Layer 2—Configure Layer 2 features, including trunk groups, VLANs, and Spanning Tree
RMON menu—Configure Remote Monitoring (RMON) functions.
Layer 3—Configure all of the IP related information, including IGMP Snooping.
QoS—Configure Quality of Service features.
Access Control—Configure Access Control Lists and Groups.
Uplink Failure Detection—Configure a Failover Pair of Links to Monitor and Links to Disable.
Statistics—These menus provide access to the switch statistics and state information.
Dashboard—These menus display settings and operating status of a variety of switch features.
