Hi All:

I have a Cisco 4948 that has not been named and does not have a static IP and it hasn't been given a hostname yet. What are the CLI commands to provide it with an Ip ( and how do I give it a hostname (cisco4948noca). I want to be able to access the the device to configure it using the web interface so I guess I will need to know how to include the subnet mask ( and gateway(  as well
