Hi there. I went through the steps in the quick set up guide to add a password and enable the web interface using Putty and telnet as I do not possess the necessary console lead. All was well and I got the web interface up and running with my chosen username and password.
Unfortunately I closed the script box before adding a static IP as I assumed this could be done on the web-interface. However, it doesn't seem possible to add the static IP on the web interface and now putty won't connect me, presumably because I have added a username and password.
To get a console lead is a mail order and a 2 week wait as I live overseas. Is there another fix? The online manual isn't helpful as it seems to be for a router not this switch and there is different functionality for adding a static IP address.
Or is this just putty being unreliable?
