Quanta LB4M Quick Config Snippets

The eBay market is flooded with the Quanta LB4M network switches. They’re Chinese. They’re cheap. The CLI is not well documented or as Cisco like as you would want it to be. Here are a couple snippets of configuration to at least get you started.

Configure a Management IP Address + Enable SSH:

enable
ip ssh server enable
network protocol none
network parms 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
config
interface 0/48
no shutdown
exit
exit
write memory

Upgrade LB4M Firmware:

show bootvar
enable
copy tftp://<tftp-server>/lb4m.1.1.0.8.bin image1
boot system image1
write memory
