I've purchased a CISCO SG500-28P Managed Switch (28 port) to add on to three other Managed Switches currently configured in our network (one other Lynksys and the other two CISCO older brands- all managed Switches with POe). The new switch has been assigned a static IP Address already and connected through an available port on one of the other managed switches. I connected my workstation only into this switch and found I'm unable to remotely connect through my workstation to other devices using Remote desktop Connection. I have limited knowledge of this but I think it has something to do with POe configuration. The POe light on the new switch is not lit up which tells me I've not properly configured it. I need:
1) any simple steps available to configure this switch and
2) Ensure same security on this switch as the others.
Unfortunately, each switches' web interface differ slightly so I can't necessarily find all the right areas to configure on the new. What are the most important areas? Any information would be appreciated.
