HP Secure Web Console

I have two of these boxes that the password was lost on. So I brought them up to my desk to reset them via http://docs.hp.com/en/1049/secureweb/faq.html .

To no avail, I can't ping the 192.0.0.192 address it says they default to after resetting them. I tried accessing them after connecting from my desk via the web and I was able to do so, apart from not being able to login they worked fine until I powered them on while holding the buttong. I waited until the orange light went off. I removed contact from the button, the orange light comes back on, then goes off after 5 seconds. Then the green light flashes furiously, as if traffic is passing. But it doesn't respond to 192.0.0.192 nor it's original IP address. Any ideas? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Adam,
You still need to do these instructions from the old SWC User Guide I have:

6. Ensure the client_host running the browser is on the same IP subnet as the HP Secure Web Console, configure the
192.0.0.192 address, and add it to the gateway list, as follows:
Enter the following commands into either a DOS or UNIX window on the client_host (PC or Workstation where your browser is running) to configure the HP Secure Web Console:
a. route add 192.0.0.192
Example: route add 192.0.0.192 15.128.122.12
b. ping 192.0.0.192. If ping is successful, follow the instructions Step 7, else proceed with Step c below.
c. arp -s 192.0.0.192 < WEB Console MAC_address>
The MAC address of the HP Secure Web Console is marked on the top of the device and also on the box used for shipment.
Note: the MAC address must be entered in the appropriateformat, as shown below:
PCs: 00-60-b0-22-3e-ae
UNIX Workstations: 00:60:b0:22:3e:ae

Note: During the configuration of your HP Secure Web Console, you must configure an IP gateway in the â configure IPâ screen.
If you do not have a valid IP gateway, enter the same IP address as you entered for the HP Secure Web Console.
7. Access the device through your Web browser on the same
subnet by typing the following URL: http://192.0.0.192.
8. Follow the instructions on the screen.

See: http://docs.hp.com/en/1049/index.html
Do you want a copy of the old PDF?

Re: HP Secure Web Console

Fred,

It was the route I was forgetting to add! Thanks for the quick response. I'm now able to acess the "HP Secure Web Console".

Leave it to a Friday afternoon for this my brian to fail in such regards!

Cheers,
Adam
