Perform Basic Configuration for Catalyst Switch through UI
The prerequisites for the basic configuration of catalyst switch through UI (User Interface) are: A Windows PC with Windows XP/2000 or later version installed on it, a web browser application installed on PC, and a crossover cable to connect PC to the switch.
To perform the basic configuration on switch, you need to follow the steps given below:

2. Press Setup button on the switch and connect the switch to the PC with crossover cable.
3. Wait for the SETUP LED to turn green to start a browser session on the PC. The setup window appears automatically on PC.
If Setup window does not appear automatically then you need to find out the default gateway configured on your PC and then type it in your web browser window to go to the setup window to view the setup window.
You can find out the default gateway by typingIP configcommand. The default gateway is required because a switch configures its management address as the default gateway for the LAN adapter card.
The setup window displays the following fields:
