    Hello all,

    Just need some help with a Quanta LB4M switch and I know there are other posts concerning these but I cannot seem to find the answers I need there.
    I can access the switch via Telnet which finds an IP address on DHCP, all good.
    I cannot find a way to enable the web management.
    I have a manual that says the following:

    ip address (Config)#interface vlan 1
    (if-vlan 1)#ip address <ipaddr>
    <netmask>
    (if-vlan 1)#exit
    (Config)#ip default-gateway <gateway>
    IP Address range from 0.0.0.0 to
    255.255.255.255
    Subnet Mask range from 0.0.0.0 to
    255.255.255.255
    Gateway Address range from 0.0.0.0 to
    255.255.255.255
    Displays all of the login session
    information

    But I cannot find a way to get my switch to accept any of these commands, it simply complains about the 'interface' part of the line.

    I have no experience with these or any other kind of complex switches but should be able to manage with the web interface if I can find a way to enable it.

    I have scanned the switches and no port other than 23 appears to be open.

    This is the version I have:
    System Description............................. LB4M 48x1G 2x10G, 1.1.0.8, VxWorks 6.6
    Machine Type................................... LB4M 48x1G 2x10G
    Machine Model.................................. LB4M
    Serial Number.................................. QTFCPW2080315
    FRU Number.....................................
    Part Number.................................... BCM56514
    Maintenance Level.............................. A
    Manufacturer................................... 0xbc00
    Burned In MAC Address.......................... 60:EB:69:A9:23:E5
    Software Version............................... 1.1.0.8
    Operating System............................... VxWorks 6.6
    Network Processing Device...................... BCM56514_A0
    Additional Packages............................ FASTPATH QOS

    All the ports appear to be enabled and the 10G uplink works but I really want to get into the web interface to configure the settings I need

    Many thanks in advance for any help offered :)

    Not all versions of the firmware have a web interface. You might need to flash a different firmware. The LB4M thread has a list of the most current versions that do and do not have it.

    For the CLI, try "enable" before the other commands. It's a bit like switching to root on a Linux box.

    you are trying to use router commands and it looks like you're running the l2 switching only firmware. you can either look up the commands for the switching firmware, or flash the routing firmware (latest is lb4m.5.13.12.14.bin if I remember right)

    the web UI was dropped in 1.1.x.x versions, you'll need to flash back to an old router image like the above lb4m.5.13.12.14.bin or an old switching image like 1.0.2.17 (there is also 1.0.3.2 but it is nothing but problems)

    read through this thread, it has all this info and more https://forums.servethehome.com/ind...8-port-gigabit-switch-discussion.3248/page-33

    OK thanks,

    I would like to team the SFP 10G ports on the two Quanta switches so that I can just link them with 20g or a redundant 10g - is this possible with my firmware do you think? If so, would you know where I can find the commands to achieve this?

    I can see that there are commands that may be relevant but cannot see how to make them work:
    6.2.10.2 port-channel
    This command configures a new port-channel (LAG) and generates a logical slot and port
    number for it. Display this number using the show port-channel.
    Note: Before including a port in a port-channel, set the port physical mode. See speed
    command.
    Syntax
    port-channel <name>
    no port-channel {<logical slot/port> | all}
    <logical slot/port> - Port-Channel Interface number.
    <name> - Port-Channel name (up to 15 alphanumeric characters).
    all - all Port-Channel interfaces.
    no - This command removes that Port-Channel.

    I just don't understand how to make the two SFP+ ports the members.

    all those commands appear to be valid in my switching only OS so than-you that's great - I am presuming that the vlan participation is only required if I am specifying the VLANs and that the default VLAN will be sent already - is that correct?
