i have dlink DES-1228 switch. Is it manageable ? if yes, then which one will be the console port ? and how can i reach to its CLI mode ?
ANSWER: Hi Pankaj, and thanks for your question.
The DES-1228 is designed to be configured via a web interface, but it does has a CLI as well. Here is a manual for the CLI:
You access the CLI by telneting to the box.
Also, according to this page:
the switch is manageable via SNMP. This means there's no management port per se, but rather it is managed over the network.
Good luck, and I hope this helps,

QUESTION: hello sir,
i read that manual. they mentioned "telnet followed by ip address" but sir i don't know what is the ip address of my switch. it is layer 2 switch , and ip address exist at layer 3. i am confused please help me out.
Hi again Pankaj,
See Page 17 of the same manual (first link). It says:
The switch's factory default IP address is
10.90.90.90 with a subnet mask of 255.0.0.0 and
a default gateway of 0.0.0.0.
That same page has instructions for how to use Telnet to access the switch.
I suggest you download and read through the whole manual, it should help you with all your configuration and management questions.
