Configuring IP Addresses

Configuring IP Addresses on AMG510 & AMG570 Switches

An IP address is a unique address that identifies a device on the internet or a local network. Each device must be configured with a unique IP Address since this allows to user to access the device via CLI or Web GUI.

Here is a guide on configuring AMG510 & AMG570 switches with IP Addresses:



Step 1: On the left-hand side of the web GUI, navigate to Configuration System IP

Step 2: Change the default IP ( to your desired IP as shown in the image below:

Step 3: Once you have entered your desired IP address, press Save

Step 4:

To verify your configuration, re-login to the switch using the updated IP Address

Step 5:

Save your configuration by navigating to the ‘Maintenance’ tab on the left hand side of the GUI and select Configuration > Save startup-config

Command Line Interface (CLI)

Step 1:

Log in to the switch via SSH or Console.

Step 2: Enter configuration mode by entering the command "configure terminal"

configure terminal

Step 3: Since by default the management is under VLAN 1, type the command "interface vlan 1" to configure VLAN 1 interface

interface vlan 1

Step 4: Use the following command to change the IP:

ip address DESIRED_IP DESIRED_SUBNET_MASK for example

ip address

where is the DESIRED_IP and is the DESIRED_SUBNET_MASK.

Note: If you are using SSH, once the above command has been executed, you may have to re-login to the switch with the newly configured IP Address, if so, please skip to Step 6.

Step 5: Exit both the VLAN interface config and configuration mode by typing exit twice:


Step 6: To verify the IP configuration you have made, enter the command "show interface vlan 1"

show interface vlan 1

Step 7: Save your configuration by entering the command "copy running-config startup-config"

copy running-config startup-config

Here’s an example of a CLI IP address configuration:
