How to configure FCX648S

Can we connect the laptop directly with RJ45 to switch “OUT OF BAND” via Telnet and configure?

What is the default IP , login access for this switch?

     In short you should do the first config via the serial port and assign the IP address to the management port.


FastIron(config)#interface M1

FastIron(config-if-mgmt)#ip addr

Does this really only set the address of the management line or of the whole switch?  i.e. If I do a ip address does that allow telnet'ing to the switch from a machine off one of the data ports?
