How to find the switch your connected to?
Posted on 2012-08-16
I'm a newer worker our facility. We have a bunch of switches in the ceiling at our facility (we're getting rid of those here soon) but in the meantime I need to get into them and set up some configurations. The switches are D-link. I imagine the previous worker had them set up so he could remote into the GUI or something.
Is there any way I can find out how to remote into them via their webinterface if they have them? If not, is there a way to find out their mac or IP address by being connected to it, so I can find it and plug in my console cable? I'm trying to do some troubleshooting, and I would like a general idea of where the switch is at, before I crawl around in the ceiling with a fluke tester trying to find the wire.
