    3. Making Network Connections 3.1 Network Switched Ports The following figure illustrates the switched ports provided on the switch. The switch comes with nine Fast Ethernet switched ports and Port #9 provides two connection types, one is 10/100BASE-TX RJ-45 connector and the other is 100BASE-FX fiber slot.
  • Page 13 • 10/100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet Switched Ports Each switched port supports one connection to a LAN segments. Each segment is an independent shared network in one collision-domain. The connection can be to either a 10BASE-T or a 100BASE-TX device. • MDI-X and MDI RJ-45 Connectors MDI-X jack is labeled [X] normally to indicate the jack is designed with internal crossover function.
  • Page 14: 10/100Base-Tx Fast Ethernet Ports

    3.2 10/100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet Ports The switch can support connections to the following devices: • 10BASE-T or 10/100BASE-TX network cards • 10BASE-T hub ports • 100BASE-TX hub ports • 10/100BASE-TX dual speed hub ports • 10/100BASE-TX switch ports Auto-negotiation Capable The ports support auto-negotiation function when establishing a link connection with any auto-negotiation capable device.
  • Page 15 Flow Control Half-duplex mode uses back pressure flow control to prevent the receiv- ing buffer from being overrun by data from a source node. Full-duplex mode uses the 802.3x flow control standard to prevent fast Physical Ports data traffic from overrunning slow data traffic. UTP Cable Connections When making a connection to another device using straight-through UTP cable, make sure MDI-X to MDI connection rule is followed.

  • Page 19: Making Trunk Connections

    3.4 Making Trunk Connections Two switch units can be cascaded together through any regular switched data port on each unit when a port expansion is required. However, the transfer bandwidth between the two cascaded ports is limited to 200Mbps full duplex. To increase the bandwidth for the connection between two switch units, a trunking function is implemented on the switch unit for this purpose.
  • Page 20 The following figure illustrates an example of 2-port trunk connection between switch A and switch B. The aggregated bandwidth of the trunk is 400Mbps. Rules : 1. One switch can be configured to have up to 2 trunks and each trunk is composed of 2 trunking ports.
  • Page 21: Making Sniffer

    The following figure illustrates a typical example of trunk connections between three switch units. Each trunk is a 2-port trunk. There are two trunks existing in this example. Each has 400Mbps band- width. The top switch is configured to have two trunks and is cascaded to four lower switch units.

  • Page 25: Setting Ip Address

    5.3 Setting IP Address Before performing any management operation over network, the most important thing is to learn the detailed information about the TCP/IP network where the managed unit is located. The information includes the network address, subnet mask, and IP of the default router. The second thing is to assign an IP address to the managed unit when it is received for the installation.

  • Page 49: Advanced / Spanning

    Advanced / Spanning Spanning-Tree Protocol is a link management protocol that provides path redundancy while preventing undesirable loops in the network. For an Ethernet network to function properly, only one active path must exist between two stations. Multiple active paths between stations cause loops in the network. If a loop exists in the network, you might receive duplicate messages.
