Question about Gadzoox Networks Slingshot 4218 Networking Switch
Hi I have a friend who bought a second hand slingshot 4218, but he cant manage the switch because it is password protected. Is there a jumper inside or a battery i can disconnect to reset the password to fabric results? Finally, there are no manuals from gadzoox on the net anymore, so if somebody knows where to find, please let me know any hint much appreciated, regards Rodrigo
It's not a regular home use switch or router. For pro or business router, switch, and this type fibre Channel switch, there is no certain way to reset or recover the password, the only way is find the facotry service guide, quite un-fortune, this company has been acquired by Broadcom, no support anymore. Usually, admin/password, root/admin, or admin/secure maght be a combination, just give a try.

Most of the switches/hubs have a reset button in front or on back. If there is no reset button, then more then likely you will need a crossover cable, you can probaly get one at compusa or radio shack. With the power off to the Switch, and all cables disconnected, plug one end of the cross over cable into WAN port 1, and plug the other end into LAN port 1. Power on, and wait for the front lights to cycle through. After about 3 minutes, power off, power on, wait 2 minutes, power off, plug in all normal cables and power on. This should take it back to factory default, and you shoudl be able to log into it from the web browser of a PC plugged into it. Most default ip addresses are either 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1
