unable to manage switch

i can't seem to be able to manage my brocade 16-port switch via webtools. I've also tried to telnet but it gives me an error saying "Sorry, trouble with pty. Connection to host lost". Is there any other way for me to manage this switch?

Hi Fairuz,

Are you able to ping the switch???

What error do you get while trying to manage the switch using webtools??

Did you try to use SSH instead of telnet??

Regards,

Biju

The error that i get when trying to access webtools is just a normal IE error that says "The page cannot be displayed". I'm sure its not a java problem as I can access the other switches that we have in our environment. I can ping the switch. cannot telnet/ssh.

Re: unable to manage switch

I can think of 2 issues

1. Problem for switch to reach your workstation. I hope you have set the gateway for the switch. If I'm not mistaken you can login as root (serial) and try to ping your workstation.

2. Problem with the FOS on this particular switch.
