This topic covers the basic steps to take in order to get into the Stratix 5700 – Express Setup. Hopefully this post will save some time for others in the community. In order to enter the express setup there are a few steps to take for an out-of-the-box configuration.
- Make sure you ethernet port is configured for automatic IP assignment.
- Next power up the switch and when the “Setup” light blinks, using a paper clip press and hold the Express Setup button for approximately 4 seconds.
- This will illuminate a port for you to connect to to get an automatic IP address on the 169.254.0.0 network. (The switch will be 169.254.0.1 configured on default VLAN1000).
- Once online you will be presented with the Device Manager’s express setup page where you’ll be able to configure the IP address and Subnet.
