Installation and Getting Started Guide
NOTE: A slot option appears on the chassis port configuration sheet. Slot corresponds to a module slot number.
NOTE: The IEEE Tagging option appears only on the Port configuration sheet when tagging is enabled at the
system level and a VLAN is defined on the system.
NOTE: The port speed option 1 Gbps is displayed only when a 1000BaseSX, 1000BaseLX, 1000BaseLH, or
1000BaseT Gigabit port or module is resident on the Routing Switch. Additionally, only the full-duplex mode is
visible. When a 10/100BaseTX Ethernet port or module is being configured, the options are 10/100 Auto, 10
Mbps, and 100 Mbps.
Assigning a Port Name
A port name can be assigned to help identify interfaces on the network. You can assign a port name to physical
ports, virtual interfaces, and loopback interfaces.
USING THE CLI
To assign a name to a port:
HP9300(config)# interface e 2/8
HP9300(config-if-2/8)# port-name Marsha-Marketing
Syntax: port-name <text>
The <text> parameter is an alphanumeric string. The name can be up to 255 characters long. The name can
contain blanks. You do not need to use quotation marks around the string, even when it contains blanks.
USING THE WEB MANAGEMENT INTERFACE
Log on to the device using a valid user name and password for read-write access. The System configuration
panel is displayed.
Click on the plus sign next to Configure in the tree view to display the configuration options.
Select the Port link to display the Port table.
Click on the Modify button next to the row of information for the port you want to reconfigure.
Enter a name in the Name field.
Click Apply to save the changes to the device's running-config file.
Select the Save link at the bottom of the dialog. Select Yes when prompted to save the configuration change
to the startup-config file on the device's flash memory.
Modifying Port Speed
Each of the 10BaseT/100BaseTX ports is designed to auto-sense and auto-negotiate the speed and mode of the
connected device. If the attached device does not support this operation, you can manually enter the port speed
to operate at either 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps. The default value for 10BaseT/100BaseTX ports is 10/100 Auto-sense.
The 100BaseFX ports operate in the full-duplex mode at 100 Mbps only and cannot be modified.
The 1000BaseSX, 1000BaseLX, 1000BaseLH, and 1000BaseT ports operate in the full-duplex mode at one
Gigabit only and cannot be modified.
USING THE CLI
To change the port speed of interface 1/8 from the default of 10/100 auto-sense to 10 Mbps operating at full-
duplex, enter the following:
HP9300(config)# interface e 1/8
HP9300(config-if-1/8)# speed-duplex 10-full
Syntax: speed-duplex <value>
