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...):

Go to Authentication > Users. Enable SSH or Telnet for the user account you will be connecting with:

You can now log into the switch using your favorite SSH or Telnet client. As you see, there are only 7 command available, and none of them are going to help you configure the switch:

HP 4/12 Brocade Firmware Upgrade - How to

If you are like me and got your hands on a Brocade fiber switch from HP, then most likely you will need to do some firmware upgrades.
With these switches you cannot simply go and upgrade to the latest version. HP states that you should not upgrade directly if it is more than 2 versions newer than your current firmware version. So this tutorial will give you the instructions on how to get the older firmware versions as well as how to upgrade them.
  • Downloading the Firmware
The first thing you need to do is go to http://www.hp.com/ and click on Support & Drivers.
Then you type in your brocade fiber switch model:
brocade firmware 1
On the next page choose “Cross Operating System…” and scroll down till you find the firmware section:
brocade firmware 2
You should see something in the description that starts with “Interim B-Series Firmware…”. Click Obtain Software. Next you must download each file that is newer than your current firmware version:

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

  • Click on Modify Port > Select Mirroring Group ID > Set Port Type to Monitor Port > Select a single port for the Monitoring Port > Click Apply (In my example, I chose port 2):

  • Change the Port Type to Mirror Port > Choose Inbound, Outbound, or Both for Stream Orientation > Select 1 or more ports to be mirrored > Click Apply (In my example, I chose ports 1 & 3):

“The Stub Received Bad Data” Windows 7 Login Error Fix


If you have an HP laptop with a finger print reader and Windows 7, you may have experienced the following error when logging in:


“The Stub Received Bad Data”


If so, there are a couple of work-arounds for this.


  • Turn on your laptop and continually tap the F8 key until a selection menu appears. Select “Safe Mode” or “Safe Mode With Networking”. Enter your password to login like normal. Choose Start > Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Services, Find “Authentication Service” from Digital Persona, right click it and choose properties. Change the startup type to “Disabled” and hit OK. Restart and boot like normal, you should be able to login with your password. The finger print scanner will be disabled however. If you want to continue to use it, try the following:


  • While in Safe Mode, go to Add/Remove programs from the control panel and uninstall “HP Simple Pass Software”, then reboot like normal. You should be able to login with your password like normal. You can then search HP's website for an older version of the software, or if you still have the CD that came with the laptop, you can install it from there. If this still doesn't work, you can try one last thing:
