    update

     

    i repeated the process and i have full access to the switch.

     

    unfortunately i cannot access from the web

     

     

    can someone recomend the browser and java versions that would work with this model ?

     

    Thanks

    good news :)

    try java 1.6.45

    i don't think browser version is critical, but if you have a choice, try something equally old :)

    after all, now that you have cli access, you don't really need any java ;)

    Hi,

     

    good that your switch is back up and running.

     

    Check the Release Notes of your installed FOS Version for e.g. Java compatibility.
