Possible causes of S1700 login failure using the default management IP address

The possible causes of S1700 login failure using the default management IP address are as follows:
�?The switch IP address is incorrect.
�?The IP address of the PC and the switch IP address are on different network segments or are unreachable for each other.
�?The user name and password are incorrect.
�?The switch cannot be managed on the web platform.
�?The browser is problematic or incompatible.

Rectify the fault as follows:
1. The management IP address of a web-managed switch (the S1728GWR-4P) is 192.168.0.1 or assigned by the DHCP server. The management IP address of an SNMP-based switch (the S1700-28GFR-4P-AC, S1700-52GFR-4P-AC, S1700-28FR-2T2P-AC, S1700-52FR-2T2P-AC, S1720-20GFR-4TP, or S1720-28GFR-4TP switch) is 192.168.1.253.
If the switch obtains an IP address through DHCP and you cannot check the IP address, connect a PC to the switch and log in to the switch using the IP address of 192.168.0.1.
2. Check whether the IP address of the PC and the switch IP address are on the same network segment.
Check whether the cable between the PC and switch is properly connected and whether the interface indicator status is normal. If not, replace the cable or connect the cable to another interface.
3. The default user name and password for logging in to a switch are admin and Admin@123, respectively. The password for logging in to the S1720 is admin@huawei.com.
If you have changed the login password and forget the changed password, holding down the Reset button to restore the factory setting and re-log in to the switch.
4. Only the S1700 series switches of which the name contains the letter w or F support web-based management.
5. Clear the browser's cache or use another browser.
