Hi everyone,

This is hossainnet new to this forum. 

How can I make sure of switch's IP/ MAC/ hostname in order to  PING to a switch from a laptop, connected with CAT-5, UTP cable?  Switch model : Allied telesis; X900-24XT ; Advanced L3. Thanks in advance.

if it is your switch then you can connect to it with a serial cable using the instructions on page 17 and outwards in this document


when you are logged in you can see the ip addresses by using the command "show running-config interface"
it will list all the ip addresses the switch has

if it belongs to someone else i would ask them if the switch is pingable

most likely it is locked down quite tightly, preventing anything the owner sees as unfit
ping might or might not be a part of the lockdown
