Using the Management Interface wizard

The Management Interface wizard provides a convenient step-by-step method to prepare the switch for secure network operation. It guides you through the process of locking down the following switch operations or protocols:

  • Setting local passwords

  • Restricting SNMP access

  • Enabling/disabling Telnet

  • Enabling/disabling SSH

  • Enabling/disabling remote Web management (WebAgent)

  • Restricting WebAgent access to SSL

  • Setting timeouts for SSH/Telnet sessions

The wizard can also be used to view the preconfigured defaults and see the current settings for switch access security. The wizard can be launched either through the CLI or the WebAgent.


The wizard security settings can also be configured using standard commands through the CLI, Menu, or WebAgent.
