cisco 3020 enable telnet via express setup

hello all,

brand new c7000, brand new 2 x cisco 3020. only the OA has a network cable connected

enabled EBIPA for both switches, I can connect to the management console via OA (using IE8), however i cant enable telnet from the express setup.

i check the enable telnet box, set a pass... hit submit... it ask me for a vlan so i typed 1, then it ask me for an IP (dont know why if im already connected to the IP i setted at ebipa) typed the ip, subnet and GW...it says I have to enter a valid number (regarding IP), but anything I enter in the IP fields, is said to be conflicting with the address the EBIPA set on FA0.

any toughts?

note: console port + hyperterminal is out of the question.

thanks in advance,

10 points to the network master!

Use the management serial port on the Cisco Switch to configure a static IP address and a Telnet password.

Check this out, it will help:

software bug....the option in the express setup is useless...
