This example shows administrators how to use the Web GUI to manage device name and avoid accessing the wrong devices. As shown below, the PC connects with Switch-1 in the environment. In the default setting, device name (System Name) will be the model name (XGS4600 in this example).


All network IP addresses and subnet masks are used as examples in this article. Please replace them with your actual network IP addresses and subnet masks. This example was tested using XGS4600-32 (Firmware Version: V4.50).

1.Configuration in Switch-1

1-1. Enter the web GUI and go to Menu > Basic Setting > General Setup. Change the System Name (Switch-1 in this example) and click Apply.

1-2. Click “Save” to save the configuration.

2.Test the Result

Enter the web GUI and you will see the page of the switch information. Check if the System Name is the name you configured (Switch-1 in this example) or not.
