Cisco 2924XL-EN Configuration

I am having a problem accessing the Java GUI control that comes with the CISCO 2924 switch.  I set the IP in CLI then connected through HTTP.  I entered no username and my password and it let me in to the main menu screen.  I then selected to access the management GUI, which uses the JAVA plugin.  The plugin loads then asks for a level 15 username and password.  I enter admin for the username and then my password from the previous entry.  It does not accept it.  I only setup one secret password in CLI which should have been level 15 by default.  I am new to Cisco and need some help accessing the GUI.

Try using "enable" as the username, and the secret password

Hmmm.  I've never entered "enable" as a username and it has worked fine... I wonder if it will take any username.

Check the release notes to make sure you have the correct java plugin/run-time on your PC.  Even a slight difference from what Cisco specifies can cause problems.

I have tried all different usernames, except enable to no avail.. I will try enable this afternoon and let you know.  This prompt by the way is the one with the little Java guy waving at you.  It is not the initial prompt when you http the switch nor is it the prompt when accessing the switch through Hyperterminal.

Post the config.

If you don't have "enable secret" configured, you can decode the password to make sure you're using the correct one.

If you're still not sure you're using the correct password and you have "enable secret" configured, you might have to do the password recovery routine.
