Fist you have to enable the HTTP server with the command:


ip http enable


And next type under your local user


service-type web

Hi Giuseppe,


What software are you using (display version)? I use, Version 5.20.105, Release 6708P08. And I have no technical problems enabling the webinterface. (Not that i use it)


1: If you do a ip http enable, the switch should enable the web server, and in a browser, you should always get an answer if you type in the management ip-address of the switch in as the URL in the browser. (assuming no firewall or other kind of accesslists elsewhere prevents you from doing this)

Depending on your browser setup, you get different results here. E.g if you have no-script plugin installed, the page will return an error message "This WebUI administration tool requires scripting support." If you turn scripting on, you'll get a login page with user name, password and verify code input fields (Nice HP logo, etc). I can use my already configured default scheme to access the pages. Can you get this page?


2: How are your users authenticated (e.g. telnet login).
