Re: first configuration switch 4210

I usually setup the following:



Give it a STATIC (not DHCP) IP address.



Setup the passwords and change the SNMP community strings away from Public/Private.



Give the device a name.



Turn off STP (spanning tree) if you are sure there is no way to create an accidental "loop" in the network.



That is all you may need. Everything else is to "tweak" the unit.



Good Luck.
