view cisco switch config via web browser

i have a mix of cisco 2950 and 3550 switches.  I can view the 2950 configurations by going to the switch's ip address in my browser but when i navigate to the 3550's address, i get prompted for a username and password but it does not accept the enable password.  I have the enable password and can authenticate via a terminal console into the 3550 but not via htttp.  Is there something to enable on the 3550 (snmp ?) ?

Thanks

in the router check if you have this line:

ip http server

That should do it, I have a cisco Router also and this fixed me up.

tlclifton,

  If you are getting a prompt then it means it is working. Now, not the enable password, put in your console password and try to login. If it doesn't let you do that the post the config here.

Cheers,
Rajesh

Rajesh is correct, the switch is looking for the user mode password, not the privileged.  The default password is usaully cisco or Cisco (Case sensative).

By default the routing devices from Cisco doesn't have a username except for PIX for which the username is also 'pix'.

Just try your default password (Console) and that should get you in.
