Obtaining a Web File

The web file is released with the system software package and varies depending on software versions. The following uses S7700V200R003 as an example to describe how to obtain a web file.

1.  Open the Internet Explorer and enter http://enterprise.huawei.com/en/ in the address box.

   NOTE:
You must have a permission to obtain the web file. To obtain the permission, choose My Huawei > Permissions.

2.  Choose Support > Product Support.

3.  Choose Software > Enterprise Networking > Switch > Campus Switch.

4.  In the navigation tree on the left, choose S7700.

5.  Select Quidway S7700 V200R003C00SPC500 and click the version number to view details.

6.  Under Version and Patch Software, find the web file with the file name extension .web.7z and download the web file.


Loading the Web File and Configuring an HTTP User

The following uses S7700 V200R003 as an example.

1.  Run the system-view command to enter the system view.

2.  Run the http server load file-name command to load the web file.

   NOTE:
Before loading a web file, upload the web file to the switch through FTP, SFTP, or TFTP. The web file must be loaded to the root directory of the switch's storage medium; otherwise, the web file cannot be loaded.

3.  Run the http secure-server enable command to enable the HTTPS server function.

4.  Run the http server enable command to enable the HTTP server function.

5.  Run the aaa command to enter the AAA view.

6.  Run the local-useruser-namepassword { cipher | irreversible-cipher } password command to configure an AAA local user name and password.

7.  Run the local-useruser-nameprivilege levellevel command to set the local user level.

   NOTE:
HTTP users of level 3 or higher can manage the switch on the web system, whereas HTTP users of level 2 or lower can only view the switch configuration.

8.  Run the local-useruser-nameservice-type http command to set the service type to HTTP.


Logging In to the Web System

1.  Open the Internet Explorer on the PC, enter http://IP address (for example, https://10.164.19.131) in the address box, and press Enter. The login dialog box is displayed.

   NOTE:
The IP address is the management address of a device, and can be an IPv4 or IPv6 address depending on the HTTPS type (HTTPS IPv4 or IPv6) you have selected.
To ensure compatibility, the system converts http://IP address you entered into https://IP address.

2.  Enter the HTTP user name, password, and verification code, and select a language for the web system.

3.  Click Login or press Enter. The web system home page is displayed.

You can manage and maintain the switch after logging in to the web system.
