newbie question, I'm afraid:
I got a second hand (or maybe more) Cisco WS-C2948G switch off eBay for use at home, but the thing came with no documentation and no software. I'm not a sysadmin, and I haven't got a clue (clearly) how to talk to the thing, or configure it.
Is there a complete idiot's guide to finding, connecting to, resetting and configuring your 2948G for dummies? Where would I find it, because the manuals on the Cisco site assume either more knowledge than I have, or a factory default setting, which I also don't seem to have.
I'm trying to connect to it using the 10BT MGT port and a crossover cable, from a laptop that is also connected to the net via a wireless adapter. When I do a netstat I don't see anything that isn't just my other machines, or my ISP.
Any pointers would be really helpful.
