I've been having some trouble initially setting up a Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series switch.
I connect the concole cable and am able to view the Cisco IOS through Hyperterminal in Windows.
I then use the "setup" command to initially set up the switch. After entering all the details, I connect a patch cable into port 1x (or whatever) of the switch so that I can customise the setup using the web interface through my network. This is what I normally do.
The problem is that after I connect a patch cable to our network, the network active light does not show in the port, and I am unable to ping the switch with the IP that I allocated it.
Any help will be appreciated!
