This one eluded me for some time. I randomly found the information and saved it for later.
In Netgear switches (well mine, GS724TP) there is a Remote Access option under Troubleshooting. I enabled this but found no way of accessing it.
It’s a telnet connection on port 60000.
Once you log in you get prompted for a DEBUG password. Again, this isn’t documented anywhere that I could find. Here is how you solve that, although the debug commands did me no good anyways.
- Turn on Remote Access
- Telnet to <switch ip>:60000
- You will be prompted for DEBUG password, don’t do anything. Just sit there staring at the screen. Eventually it will timeout and present you with a
- Type in
mclias the password
- Type in
- Choose “1”
- Enter your desired password, Enter
- Enter ‘e’ and then ‘Y’
You should then be able to close the connection and reopen and provide the new DEBUG password and access all debug commands.
I still haven’t figured out which ones to use though.
