Browser Access To Switch Fails (Catalyst 2960G)

David Dembrow
Level 1
Level 1

I am unable to access a series of switches connected together through a management vlan.  I receive the message "The server xx.xx.xx.xx at level_15_access requires a username and password."  Entering the username and password fails and the same username and password message returns.  I am able to ssh into the switch with the username and password that fails trying to access the switch with the browser.

How can I check the username and password for access with the browser?

I am trying to monitor switch performance.  Is there a good way to monitor switch performance with the command line interface?

Thanks in advance,

Thanks for the suggestion and refrenced documentation link.  I did have ip http server enabled, however, I did not have ip http authentication aaa specified.  Including that command accepted the same username and password used for ssh access.

Thanks very much,
