very odd indeed. What if you configure the below on that switch and put it back in the stack ?


no ip http server
no ip http secure-server

Hello George,


unfortunately, we use Switch 3 as standalone sw at production network and don't have another sw to add it on current stack .


**now, the issue is we don't know the root cause of this odd issue to deal with it if we face it again at another case **


anyway many thank george and balaji for yours help




"user pc when trying to access any dst outside vlan via http ===> it Redirect me to the SW login page"
Do you have any FW inpath of your wan access that could be proxying http traffic towards?
