That's almost a necessity with those switches. The web GUI those had was truly awful.


Bit of an oxymoron though :D
Those switches are designed to be configured through the web pages, using the in-built macro's. I haven't had a whole great deal of installing them but from the small changes I have made, the web gui hasn't been a problem, for me anyway.
This is where I feel that people who only use CLI as a rule could have concerns.
