    We have a CentreCOM Switch 3726XL in our circuit. (24 port) The RS-232 cable and software of the switch have been lost. Now I want to configure and manage the switch.

    How can I telnet to switch?

    Could anyone help me. I shall remain ever grateful to you.

    It depends whether this switch is new or has been configured before.

    If it's a new switch, you will not be able to telnet because the switch simply does not have an IP address assigned to it yet. So there is no IP address to telnet to.

    If the switch has a previous configuration, and you know the IP address, you're in business. Give your PC an IP address which would be on the network, i.e., if your switch is 192.168.0.5 with a mask of 255.255.255.0, make your PC 192.168.0.6 with a mask of 255.255.255.0. Then just use a straight-through cable from your PC to any switchport.

    The following lines are added to a valuable suggestion by an esteemed reader regarding CentreCOM switch configurarion.

    The Switch is not configured yet. No Ip number is assigned to it initially. It takes input from the 2 port Cisco router and connects to a LAN and a few nodes.

    We would like to configure the switch by accessing it for the first time. There is no software or serial cable available with us. The switch is in working for more than 2 years and is fault free.
