Lovely piece of kit
However, when I got it, some ijit's already programmed an IP.
So, to make it easier for me, I downloaded a small open-source DHCP server for Windows, set it up, and connect the switch to my laptop.
Said open-source DHCP server also got a web interface. http://sourceforge.net/projects/dhcp-dns-server/
Then I factory-reset the switch to its default state. In this state it'll obtain a DHCP address lease.
I was then able to determine which IP the switch got, and was able to change its configuration without any further issues. Added an admin password too. And documented this.
I opted for the single DHCP server on my laptop as it'll be quicker (and easier) to determine what IP was taken, rather than connecting the switch to the network, and trying to guess which IP it took... (using server2003).
I know in Server2003 you can view the DHCP leases etc, but there's a ton of leases Not lus to sift through them all to get recently acquired IP's
