CatTools is attempting to send invalid commands to the device and the SG300 is returning an error because of it.

CatTools supports only the Cisco Catalyst line of switches. The SG300 is a small business switch and isn't supported.

It's possible that you can write a module to make CatTools work with the SG300, but it doesn't look like it will work out of the box.

This is not true !!

Now the new version of CATTOOLS supports also SG300 switches.

Good to know. They haven't updated their site to reflect this yet. So you've got it working with the new version?
