(1) using a serial line - connect the
rollover serial line cable between a COM port on the front end server
and the management port on the switch.

port configuration information.
(2) Using telnet to the switches IP address from the front end server.
(3) Using http. Use Netscape to http to the switches IP address
which can be found in the /etc/hosts file on the front end server.
