How do I Enable Power Over Ethernet on a Cisco 3560?
PoE (Power over Ethernet) is a wonderful feature in many network switches that provides
power and network connectivity to PoE enabled devices over a single network
connection cable. In some cases, PoE will need to be configured on a Cisco 3560 when
plugging in a PoE enabled device in order to use this feature.
1 Plug a Cisco serial console cable into the 9-pin serial port on the back of a computer
and the other end of the serial cable into the serial console port on the Cisco 3560X.
2 Open the terminal console program---for example Hyperterminal or Putty in Microsoft
Windows or Minicom in Linux---and configure the terminal console program to connect at
9600 baud, or "bits per second," with flow control configured for "None."
