How to connect to a 3com 3300 switch through console port unknown IP address?
Posted on 2005-05-08
I need help! I need to reset the IP address on a 3com 3300 superstack II switch which came from another building and has a fixed ip address. The problem is that my 3com network supervisor is not seeing this switch because it will not communicate with the main switch on the other side in the MDF. This switch is located in an IDF closet and we swapped out the older switch because had some bad ports in it. Has a fiber module in the back that needs to communicate with the main closet. Can get lights on the module in the IDF, but will not communicate with the main closet. We think it is because it has a fixed IP and need to connect to the console port to reset it. I cannot get the 3com document to download from the internet. Either the site has been down for 2 days, or something is wrong. Tried going to the 3com support and cannot get any documents to download. Anyway, I need this fixed by tomorrow morning - I have an entire side of the building down. Anyone can help that would be appreciated. I need a step by step instruction on the commands to type to communicate with this switch through a cable.
