I got a FWS624G switch without any infomation about management IP and WWN value. It is running now with serveral working connections. So I can't reset it but I just want to change some configurations. Here are some ways I've tried to connect to that switch.
For serials cable connection, I tried serveral kinds of cable but unscessfull. Even by using EZSwitchSetup.
For ethernet connection and using EZSwitchSetup: I can't find the WWN value on the switch body.
Any one here who work with these series before? Please help me the question: how can I find the WWN value of FWS624G?

Take a look at the Installation manual
in it you can check the characteristics of the serial connection.
On the other hand, I am not sure but I reckon that these switchs do not have WWN...

Yes, as I mentioned above, I tried with following configuration mentioned in the document:
• Baud: 9600 bps
• Data bits: 8
• Parity: None
• Stop bits: 1
• Flow control: None
with serveral kinds of cable without any successful.
Thank you for your post. I'm thinking of in case my switch's management module was failure.

FWS uses a straight thru serial cable, with a female connector at both ends. It looks like it should be a null modem, but it is not. If you have trouble finding an appropriate cable, I have used a normal serial cable with a gender bender, to convert the male side to female.
