    Getting started Introduction The HP GbE2c switch software lets you use your Web browser to access switch information and statistics and perform switch configuration via the Internet. This guide provides a reference to the browser-based interface (BBI) for the HP GbE2c Ethernet Blade Switch and the HP GbE2c Layer 2/3 Ethernet Blade Switch. This chapter briefly describes the software features and requirements for the BBI and explains how to access the BBI start page.

  • Page 9: Enabling Or Disabling Bbi Access, Web Browser Setup, Starting The Bbi

    Enabling or disabling BBI access By default, BBI access is enabled. If you need to disable or re-enable access, use the following command from the command line interface: >> Main# /cfg/sys/access/http <disable|enable (or just d|e)> By default, secure BBI access is disabled. If you need to enable access, use the following command from the command line interface: >>...
