Swich control with console



  • I have a switch that can only be administered through a console port. Because of its close proximity to my pfsense box I was wondering if there was a way I could connect to the webgui then serial into my switch. I know that I am asking to change a setting and lock myself out, but it would be much more convenient than moving a laptop or setting up a dedicated computer just to serial into my switch.



  • the switch probably has a webgui of its own / or a way to ssh/telnet to it.

    what switch to you have exactly… I would have to guess it prob has ssh or as mentioned a web ui as well..  Make and model number will allow us to check.

    Console only switch in this day and age seems very unlikely
