The D-Link Switch provides an RS-232 serial port that enables a connection to a computer or terminal for monitoring and configuring the D-Link Switch. This port is a female DB-9 connector, implemented as a data terminal equipment (DTE) connection.

To use the console port, you need the following equipment:

● A terminal or a computer with both a serial port and the ability to emulate a terminal.

● A null modem or crossover RS-232 cable with a female DB-9 connector for the console port on the D-Link Switch.

To connect a terminal to the console port:

1.Connect the female connector of the RS-232 cable directly to the console port on the Switch, and tighten the captive retaining screws.

2.Connect the other end of the cable to a terminal or to the serial connector of a computer running terminal emulation software. Set the terminal emulation software as follows:

3.Select the appropriate serial port (COM port 1 or COM port 2).

4.Set the data rate to 9600 baud.

5.Set the data format to 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no parity.

6.Set flow control to none.

7.Under Properties, select VT100 for Emulation mode.

8.Select Terminal keys for Function, Arrow, and Ctrl keys. Ensure that you select Terminal keys (not Windows keys).

NOTE: When you use HyperTerminal with the Microsoft® Windows® 2000 operating sys-tem, ensure that you have Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 or later installed. Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 allows you to use arrow keys in HyperTerminal’s VT100 emulation. See www.microsoft.com for information on Windows 2000 service packs.

9.After you have correctly set up the terminal, plug the power cable into the power receptacle on the back of the Switch. The boot sequence appears in the terminal.

10.After the boot sequence completes, the console login screen displays.

11.If you have not logged into the command line interface (CLI) program, press the Enter key at the User name and password prompts. There is no default user name and password for the Switch. The administrator must first create user names and passwords. If you have previously set up user accounts, log in and continue to configure the Switch.

12.Enter the commands to complete your desired tasks. Many commands require administrator-level access privileges. Read the next section for more information on setting up user accounts. See the D-Link DES-3028/DES-3028P/DES-3028G/DES-3052/DES-3052P CLI Manual on the documentation CD for a list of all commands and additional information on using the CLI.

13.When you have completed your tasks, exit the session with the logout command or close the emulator program.

14.Make sure the terminal or PC you are using to make this connection is configured to match these settings.

If you are having problems making this connection on a PC, make sure the emulation is set to VT-100. You will be able to set the emulation by clicking on the File menu in you HyperTerminal window, clicking on Properties in the drop-down menu, and then clicking the Settings tab. This is where you will find the Emulation options. If you still do not see anything, try rebooting the D-LinkSwitch by disconnecting its power supply.

Once connected to the console, the screen below will appear on your console screen. This is where the user will enter commands to perform all the available management functions. The D-Link Switch will prompt the user to enter a user name and a password. Upon the initial connection, there is no user name or password and therefore just press enter twice to access the command line interface.

Step 1: Connect a serial cable from your PC to the D-Link DWS-1008´s Console port, located on the front of the switch.

Step 2: Open HyperTerminal from the Start Menu. It can be found at All Programs->Accessories->Communications->HyperTerminal.

Step 3: Name the connection. The name can be anything, for example DWS-1008.

Step 4: Select the Com Port on your PC that the console cable is currently connected to.

Step 5: Configure you Port Settings as follows:

  • Bits per Second: 9600
  • Data Bits: 8
  • Parity: None
  • Stop Bits>: 1
  • Flow Control: None

Step 6: Click on OK.

Step 7: Verify that your scroll lock Light is off and then hit enter to verify you get the switch prompt. Your prompt should look like DWS-1008-9193B0>.

Step 8: At the prompt type Enable and then hit enter.

Step 9: You will be prompted for a password. There is no password by default so just hit enter.

Step 8: Now your prompt will look like DWS-1008-9193B0#.

Step 9: To view the D-Link switch´s default settings, type show switch and then hit enter at the prompt.

This article teaches you how to set system IP and DHCP interface on D-Link switch.

Step 1: Open HyperTerminal and configure it for the Com port you are presently connected to, and use the following settings:

Bits Per Second – 9600
Data Bits – 8
Parity – None
Stop Bits – 1
Flow Control – None

Note: In the following steps, Console#, represents the command line prompt. If you have changed the name of your switch it will appear as the name, rather than console (ex DWS1008-01#).

Step 2: Login to the switch.
When prompted, enter the following information:
Usernameadmin
Password – (if you have not set a password leave this blank and press Enter)
Console#enable

Step 3: Type the following command to pull DHCP from an Interface other than the switch (such as a Router or Server):
Console# set interface default ip dhcp-server disable. Press Enter.
success: change accepted.
Console# set interface default ip dhcp-client enable. Press Enter.
success: change accepted.

Step 4: Type the following command to set the System IP on your switch:
Console# set system ip-address 192.168.50.10
success: change accepted.

Step 5: Type the following command to set the Default Gateway on your switch:
Console# set ip route default 192.168.50.1 1
success: change accepted.

Step 6: Type the following command to set the IP for Interface 1:
Console# set interface 1 ip 192.168.50.10 255.255.255.0
success: change accepted.

Step 7: Type the command: show config to verify your results:
(Console# show config)

The results will then be displayed, similar to the list shown below:

# Configuration nvgen´d at 2006-12-19 19:53:02
# Image 4.0.19.0
# Model DWS-1008
# Last change occurred at 2006-12-19 19:19:07
set ip route default 192.168.50.1 1
set system name DWS-1008-9193B0
set system ip-address 192.168.50.10
set enablepass password b6b706525e1814394621eeb2a1c4d5803fcf
set vlan 1 port 1
set vlan 1 port 2
set vlan 1 port 3
set vlan 1 port 4
set vlan 1 port 5
set vlan 1 port 6
set vlan 1 port 7
set vlan 1 port 8
set interface 1 ip 192.168.50.10 255.255.255.0
DWS-1008-9193B0#
