HP V1910 - How to Enable Full Command Line Access for SSH or Telnet Management

The HP V1910 switches are powerful and economical switches. By default, you can only manage them through the web interface. Even if you enable SSH or Telnet, the commands available are minimal. Here is how to configure SSH or Telnet, enable it for your user account, and enable the full range of commands that are disabled by default. The model in this example is an HP V1910-48G:

Log into the web interface, and go to Network > Service. Enable SSH or Telnet and click apply (please don't enable telnet, really, just use SSH...):

How to Mirror Ports on HP V1910 Series Switch - Tutorial on How to Configure

HP V1910 series switches are capable of performing "one-to-one" or "many-to-one" port mirroring. This means you can choose to have one or several ports mirrored to another port. In my example, I am using an HP V1910-48G switch.

  • Log into the web interface of the switch. Click on Device > Port Mirroring > Create > Enter 1 for the Mirroring Group ID > Click Apply
