Using Authorized IP Managers

Defining Authorized Management Stations

Operator: Allows read-only access from the Web browser and
console interfaces. (This is the same access that is allowed by the
switch's operator-level password feature.)
Defining Authorized Management
Authorizing Single Stations: The table entry authorizes a single
management station to have IP access to the switch. To use this
method, just enter the IP address of an authorized management
station in the Authorized Manager IP column, and leave the IP Mask
set to This is the easiest way to use the Authorized
Managers feature. (For more on this topic, see "Configuring One
Station Per Authorized Manager IP Entry" on page 10-9.)
Authorizing Multiple Stations: The table entry uses the IP Mask
to authorize access to the switch from a defined group of stations.
This is useful if you want to easily authorize several stations to have
access to the switch without having to type an entry for every station.
All stations in the group defined by the one Authorized Manager IP
table entry and its associated IP mask will have the same access
level—Manager or Operator. (For more on this topic, refer to "Config-
uring Multiple Stations Per Authorized Manager IP Entry" on page
To configure the switch for authorized manager access, enter the appropriate
Authorized Manager IP value, specify an IP Mask, and select either Manager
or Operator for the Access Level. The IP Mask determines how the Authorized
Manager IP value is used to allow or deny access to the switch by a manage-
ment station.

Overview of IP Mask Operation

The default IP Mask is and allows switch access only to a
station having an IP address that is identical to the Authorized Manager IP
parameter value. ("255" in an octet of the mask means that only the exact value
in the corresponding octet of the Authorized Manager IP parameter is allowed
in the IP address of an authorized management station.) However, you can
alter the mask and the Authorized Manager IP parameter to specify ranges of
authorized IP addresses.
