HPE OfficeConnect 1920S - Enable SSH / TFTP Services

HPE OfficeConnect 1920S - Enable SSH / TFTP Services

We need to manage switches HPE OfficeConnect 1920S remotely but only HTTP/HTTPS Administration is available.

HPE 1920S has an special operating system, neither Procurve nor Comware. We are looking for technical documentation which describes how to enable SSH/TFTP services but we have not found anything yet.

Do you know how we could enable SSH/TFTP services in HPE 1920S switches?

In official documentation is this switch marked as web managed, so no tftp, no ssh access but also not guaranteed IMC management. I did not see this switch but I am quite disappointed with this model as replacement (functional level) of fantastic product line 1910/1920.

This is not about price but about flexibility. Original 1910/1920 were perfect switches for non-critical places with full level of flexibility (8,16,24,and 48 ports with and without PoE) with identical engine as for full feature edge switches (5130/5500/5800 etc). And simply managable by IMC.

I checked the HPN End of Sale list.  I didn't realize that the 1920's went End of Sale on 8/31/2017. Please take a look at:


The recommended replacement is in fact the 1920S.  It is web managed only so no CLI.

The 1910's went end of sale February 12, 2015.  Please take a look at:


THe 1910 8 Switch went end of sale September 30, 2016.

Happy holidays!
