Hi,

We have 5 SF 200-24 switches on a network and no passwords. We've been attempting to find the VLAN ID's using wireshark without success. Can someone provide a step by step on how to find these using wireshark? is it even possible?

thanks.

Did you try default username and password for login?
username: cisco
password: cisco
When you are on some access port VLAN information is removed.
The only way to have information about VLANs would be to listen to traffic on trunks.

If your ports are access ports then you wont see any VLANs in a client Wireshark Capture. This is because they are 'untagged' ports.

It you port was a trunked  'tagged' port then you would be able to se the VLAN tags in Wireshark.

We'll go back and plug into a trunk port to capture the traffic.

Yes we did try the default passwords.

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

Evidently the machines we are using (all ms os's) are stripping the information out. I'm wondering if there is a way around without building a linux machine.

Unfortunately we were unable to capture the ID's even after using a Linux machine as recommended by someone on another board.
