Hi everyone, I have a Extreme Summit x450A..

I was trying to disable the http web access to the switch since I am using https to access to the switch.

However, after I issued "disable web http" command, save configuration and restarted the switch. I am still able to access to the login page through http://switch_ip

Just that it prompts http request error when I try to login and view the detail.

My question is.. how to totally closing port 80 down because I dont even wan the web login page accessible.

Thanks (from hengchuen)

Very strange - what version of XOS are you running? It could be a bug, or there could be something else at work. At any rate you could make an ACL that blocks port 80 on the interface:

entry block-80 {
if {
destination-address swi.tch.i.p/32 ;
destination-port 80 ;
} then {

Very Strange can you do a show man after you disable it to verify that it is off? Before you restart it try and access it via web to make sure it is down.

May be you must upgrade that switch firmware, because i use 15.x always ok (deny access) but version 12.6 will fail (web can be access)
