    Hi lorraine welcome to AO. For switches ensure the following:-

    1. Change the default telnet or ssh login passwords.
    2. Read the Switch manual to gaurd against active sniffing in a network.

    By default on all 3coms the stmp group public is enabled and has no password. Either disable or add a password. stmp traps are the easiest way to sniff a network fairly undected (if done right)

    Edit: That's SNMP not stmp

    OK, combining suggestions from above:

    1. Current BIOS version.
    2. Current Firmware version
    3. Manger Password (hardened)
    4. Operator Pasword (hardened)
    5. Change Public community to match network SNMP community
    6. Password protect SNMP communities

    Hmmm ... well, this should be a good start.

    OOpsie!

    7. Document versions, configuration and settings.
