First Screen Figure 3-6. First Screen Display in Console Interface Once you have configured your system terminal and started the switch, you can login to the console interface. The default username is admin. There is no password required. You can change both the user name and password in the User Authentication Menu option, which appears on the Main Menu.
The system information screen displays information such as hardware, software versions, and system up time. You can also enter specific information about you and your organization. This information about the switch is available through any SNMP manager. In each field, 48 characters can be entered.
0.0.0.0. After changing any of the settings, you need to save the information and reset the switch in order for the changes to take effect. Also note that the value under Current column will not reflect the changes you made until the next time you login after resetting the switch.
2.3. SNMP Community Setup Figure 3-11. SNMP Community Menu Use the SNMP communities to restrict access to the switch by SNMP management stations by adding editing or disabling SNMP communities. You can configure up to 6 SNMP communities, each with either a restricted read-only or unrestricted read/write access.
2.4. Trap Receiver Figure 3-12. Trap Receiver Menu A trap receiver is a management station designated by the switch to receive SNMP traps sent from the switch. Use Trap Receiver screen to designate certain community to receive trap(s) generated by the system. In the default configuration, no trap receivers are configured and the authentication trap is disabled.
This menu allows you to enable/disable Web-Based management capability. If disabled, there is no access to management function through the use of a Web browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape. 2.6. Trap Filter Setup Figure 3-14. Trap Filter Setup Menu The system will generate a set of SNMP traps upon the occurrence of an event.
Use <Space Bar> to toggle the Enable/Disable field and type in the appropriate value in the Time and Priority fields. Spanning Tree Enable State is disabled by default on the MIL-S3580. The switch uses the IEEE802.1D Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), when enabled, to ensure that only one path at a time is active between any two nodes on the network.
VLAN, the port accepts the frame. If they belong to different VLANs, the port discards the frame. If Ingress filtering is disabled, any tagged frame is accepted on any port on the switch. It does not matter whether the frame and port belong to the same or different VLANs.
Video is a multicast application. IGMP Snooping enables the switch to monitor the flow of queries from the devices and the routers. IGMP Snooping improves the switch's performance by restricting the flow of multicast packets to only those switch ports, which have devices receiving the multicast (video).
3.2. Individual Port Configuration Figure 3-18. Switch Port Configuration Menu In Switch Port Configuration Menu, you can configure basic characteristics such as speed, flow control, and VLAN ID as well as the following features supported by the switch: Port Description - Sixteen characters can be entered to identify the port.
Configuration takes effect immediately after saving, with no resetting of the switch necessary. The various levels are listed below. 10Mb 312Kb 625KB 100Mb 3.12Mb 6.25Mb 1000Mb 31.2Mb 62.5Mb Table 3-1. Eight Levels of Bandwidth Provisioning Default Port VLAN ID - The default VLAN ID must be set for each port after configuration of new VLANs.
3.3.1. Static Unicast Address Configuration You can create, modify, or delete Static Unicast Address by selecting entries from the following screen. Figure 3-20. Static Unicast Address Configuration Menu This screen shows all the Static Unicast addresses configured and their status. There is a separate index for 128 different Static Unicast addresses.
Use <Space Bar> to toggle the status field between Disable, Forwarding, Filter-In, and Filter-Out. Disable – This Unicast Address entry has no effect to the switch system. Forwarding – All packets designated to this MAC address will be forwarded (and only to) the designated port.
3.4. Port Statistics Figure 3-22. Port Statistics Menu You can view the port specific statistical information displayed in this screen by entering the port number in the Port ID field. The statistics are automatically refreshed, but you can force the screen to refresh or reset the counters to 0 by selecting the appropriate option.
By default, Spanning Tree is disabled on the MIL-S3580. The switch uses the IEEE802.1D Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), when enabled, to ensure that only one path at a time is active between any two nodes on the network. In networks where there is more than one physical path between any two nodes, STP ensures a single active path between them by blocking all redundant paths.
By default, the VLAN mode configuration for the switch is IEEE 802.1Q. Once set to Port Based VLANs, all ports are on the same VLAN by default. There can be up to 128 different port based VLANs configured.
Figure 3-25. Port Based VLAN Configuration Menu 3.8. 802.1Q VLAN Configuration When configuring the IEEE802.1Q VLAN, there are slightly different options available when the port is configured on the console screen or the web browser. A port on a VLAN can be in one of three different states. Normal where the port is not mapped to a specific VLAN but can become a member through Dynamic VLAN registration.
Once configured there are 3 possible states of the ports that show in the management menus. S: shows a static registration of the port and GVRP is not running D: the port has been registered to the specific VLAN by GVRP C: the port has been registered to the specific VLAN by GVRP and it was also set to that VLAN by a network administrator : A blank indicates that the port is not a member of the VLAN.
Figure 3-27. Static VLAN Port Configuration Menu ( ) – Port is not set as static (fixed) member of the VLAN but it can become a member through Dynamic VLAN Registration. Dynamic VLANs occur when GVRP sets them. Unless GVRP is running, no registration of dynamic VLANs can take place.
Dynamic VLAN Registration. GVRP enables the switch to dynamically create 802.1Q compliant VLANs on links with other devices running GVRP. This enables the switch to automatically create VLAN links between other GVRP aware devices. GVRP reduces the chances for errors in VLAN configuration by automatically providing VLAN ID consistently across the network.
This screen allows you to only view the settings made in Switch Device Configuration menu. It shows that the switch is set to MTU/MDU VLAN mode with one uplink. If 2 uplinks are configured, ports 1 through 12 map to port 25 and ports 13 through 24 map to port 26.
GARP Leave All Time > GARP Leave Time > GARP Join Time : Before GVRP can be enabled, STP must also be enabled, saved, and the switch must go through a Cold Start in order for configuration to take effect.
Figure 3-32. IGMP Snooping Table This table shows the multicast groups found by IGMP Snooping. By supporting IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) Snooping, the switch can forward multicast traffic intelligently. Packets are forwarded to the ports that belong to the multicast group instead of being broadcasted to all ports and possibly disrupting network performance.
You can create 4 trunks at a time; each trunk can hold up to 8 ports. Only ports of the same speed can belong to a single trunk. Link aggregation is supported and trunking can be configured to another switch supporting the standards.
You can change the password setting in the User Authentication Menu. You can also create alternate users and assign either read or read/write privileges to each user configured. By default, the switch has two user names configured: guest, with no password, which only has read privileges, and admin, which has read/write privileges and no password.
These changes stay in effect until another configuration change is made. A warm start will save all configuration changes, but the switch does not go through a POST (Power On Self Test). A cold start will save all the...

Trap Receiver Figure 4-6. Trap Receiver Menu A trap receiver is a management station designated by the switch to receive SNMP traps sent from the switch. Use Trap Receiver screen to designate certain community to receive trap(s) generated by the system. In the default configuration, no trap receivers are configured and the authentication trap is disabled.
Figure 4-9. Switch Configuration Menu Spanning Tree Enable State - By default, Spanning Tree is disabled on the MIL-S3580. The switch uses the IEEE802.1D Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), when enabled, to ensure that only one path at a time is active between any two nodes on the network.
If Ingress Filtering is disabled, any tagged frame is accepted on any port on the switch. It does not matter whether the frame and port belong to the same or different VLANs. Per-Port Priority allows port based priorities. You can designate the priority for the receiving port so that any frame received will be transmitted to the destination port with the programmed priority.
(video). IGMP Snooping Table Aging Time is the time the switch will maintain its multicast group(s). It controls how frequently the switch expects to see information from devices that stay members of multicast groups and process leaving requests.
Port Description - Sixteen characters can be entered to identify the port. Administration State - When set to Disable, the port is inoperable and no devices can access the switch through the port. The administrator must then enable the port in order for a link to be established.

2 Ports: 25, 26 Port Mirror Configuration Figure 4-14. Port Mirror in Switch Port Configuration Menu Port Mirroring copies all traffic (all frames) from a specific source port to a target port. This helps to track down network errors or erroneous packet transfers without interrupting the flow of data across the network.
Select the status field between Disable, Forwarding, Filter-In, and Filter-Out. Disable – This Unicast Address entry has no effect to the switch system. Forwarding – All packets designated to this MAC address will be forwarded (and only to) the designated port.
Figure 4-16. Static Multicast Address Configuration in Permanent Address Configuration Menu In the Static Multicast Configuration Menu screen, you can add member(s) to the group by checking the port(s). Spanning Tree Protocol Configuration Spanning Tree is a link management protocol that provides path redundancy while preventing undesirable loops in the network.
Figure 4-17. Spanning Tree Protocol Configuration Menu If you enable the Spanning Tree Protocol, you must complete the Priority and Time fields with appropriate values or use defaults spanning priority and path cost to any port. A port with higher priority and lower path cost is less likely to be blocked if Spanning Tree Protocol is detecting network loop.
By default, the VLAN mode configuration for the switch is IEEE 802.1Q. Once set to Port Based VLANs, all ports are on the same VLAN by default. There can be up to 128 different port based VLANs configured.
Normal where the port is not mapped to a specific VLAN but can become a member through Dynamic VLAN registration. Dynamic VLANs are set when GVRP sets them. Unless GVRP is running, there is no registration of dynamic VLANs. Fixed registration maps a port to a specific or fixed VLAN. The network administrator can "fix"...

For small network where rapid growth can be expected in the near future, this switch is an ideal solution supporting backbone connectivity. The switch can be used as a standalone switch for a group of heavy traffic users. Switching is brought to the desktop either through a single end-station per switch port or through a multi-port switch.
For enterprise networks where large data broadcasts are constantly processed, this switch is an ideal solution for department users to connect to the corporate backbone. The MIL-S3580 used as a segment switch can alleviate user contention for bandwidth and eliminate server and network bottlenecks. All ports can connect to high-speed department servers that need high bandwidth.
High Performance Switched Workgroup This switch is also a good solution for connecting two workgroups, supporting the throughput, for example, of 800Mbps. This application is useful for power groups that need high bandwidth.
The switch can provide the same bandwidth of FDDI and ATM at much lower costs. In addition, all current adapters and network devices can still be used. The switching cross-domain connection is better than bridge and router because users can retain LAN structure in which any node can freely communicate with any other node.
Figure 5-4: VLAN Workgroup Application Shared Server The MIL-S3580’s compliance to the IEEE802.1Q tagging VLAN standard allows ports to exist in multiple VLANs for shared resources, such as servers, printers, and switch-to-switch connections. It is also possible to have resources exist in multiple VLANs on one switch as shown in the following figure.
In this example, stations on different VLANs share resources. As a result, VLAN 1 and VLAN 2 can access VLAN 3 for printing. The broadcasts from ports configured in VLAN3 can be seen by all VLAN port members of VLAN3.
