Hello and thank you for choosing JUSTANSWER.com
Accessing a Cisco Switch is usually done form the Terminal session, which is done through the command prompt.
However, the newer Cisco switches have a GUI you can interface with using a built-in web server of the Cisco Switch.
So, what is the make and model of the Cisco Switch?
As far as the IT manager duties for networking. This can be VERY different depending on the company, and what the environment is, and the security protocols.
I was in IT support for a few years, and my manager almost never left his office, but was ALWAYS in the know!
Some basics would be creating and maintaining the network map, and to maintain the WiFi, and make sure users are able to access any network drives. But there are SO MANY MORE duties that, the basic terminology really doesnt apply.
okay, thats no problem.....what is the exact make and model of the cisco switch. Once i know that....i can build a step by step list for you.
