Default Baystack 350T configuration

I know how to use the console interface if the switch already has an IP but the problem I am having is I cannot get onto the console interfacein the first place because the switches dont have an IP.... therefore I cannot telnet into them. How can I get onto the console interface? I have a laptop with a serial cable.... I have tried using ZOC and another emulation program but I dont know how to get it connected without and IP???? Someone please help if you can!!!

Thanks!!!!

I may be able to help if i understand what you are trying to do... You are trying to find the IP address of the switch in order to configure it to allow telneting? Is this correct?

Not really, I want to be able to configure an IP for it. by default there is no IP with it when it comes out the box. I want to connect to it and put one in. I dont know how to connect to it without and IP address.

check out page 47 of this pdf documentation: http://www25.nortelnetworks.com/libr...T/9300992A.PDF

Have you tried using windows hyperterminal? Assuming you have XP on your laptop: Start>> All Programs>> Accessories>> Communications>> Hyperterminal.

On page 47 of the pdf file it has some settings you might need to confirm in hyperterminal in order to connect. Hope this helped some.

tried through hyperterminal and still nothing. It said connected but could not type anything in the command prompt. I know the keyboard works but somehow it wasn't getting a connection. I tried another cable and still nothing.
