I have in my hardware stash, a BayStack 252 24 port hub.

The documentation I have found states these are managed by "web based software", but, from everything I have been able to determine, it is software that you have to install on a local machine on the network.

The problem is, I cannot find this software, and would like very much to use this software.

This is a Nortel product, but, I couldn't find anything on their site either.

Thanks in advance if someone can point me to this software, or a way to manage this hub.

According to what I read here it states "When the BayStack 252 hub is in a managed hub stack, it is referred to as a "slave" because it is managed through a connection to a Baystack 250 or 253 hub. The BayStack 252 hub can also function as an unmanaged hub in a network." To me that implies that it will not work as a managed hub alone.

Another issue is that it is a hub, not a switch. I would not want a hub on a modern network as it would limit throughput and performance for any connected devices. The cheapest switch would outperform it, and in addition would save a lot on power consumption. Scott.
