Overview
The configurable VS-1200-S family of products increases network visibility and leverages your
investment in network analyzers, probes, and security equipment by allowing you to simultaneously
monitor as many supported configurable ports as you may need to fit your peripheral network tools.
Greater visibility accelerates problem resolution, reduces downtime and increases enterprise
productivity.
The configurable family of products are compatible with all vendor hardware and can be controlled
by our Command Line Interface (CLI) software, which will allow you to control all of your
configurable family of products through a single interface regardless of what network appliances you
choose to deploy.
2.1
VS-1200-S Series Summary
The configurable VERSAstream Data Access Switch can combine data from multiple Ethernet
network segments into one data stream. A single Gigabit device/tool, such as an intrusion detection
system, protocol analyzer, or network probe can receive the aggregated data with just one network
interface card (NIC).
The configurable product can also have additional input/output ports or Any-to-Any ports, so
multiple Gigabit devices can receive the same data stream. This allows different network tools to
collect data from the same network segments at the same time, eliminating contention for access to
the network. Also, these ports can be configured as more input ports to include more network
segments for monitoring.
Network administrators no longer need a separate tool for each network segment to achieve
simultaneous 24x7 monitoring of multiple links, nor do they need to "switch" to a different segment to
collect data from it. A VS-1200-S series unit simultaneously collects data from multiple network
segments and aggregates all the data before sending it to the connected network tools, expanding
network visibility and reducing the number of tools needed on the network And, because the VS1200-S series aggregates all the data before sending it to the connected network tool, you can
always view the entire conversation even in asymmetric routing, redundant, and load-balanced
environments.
Aggregation gives a complete view of traffic. Instead of collecting and manually assembling trace or
log files from separate tools on separate network segments, the VS-1200-S lets security and
analysis tools collect the data in a single file. In security applications, events and false positives are
recorded fewer times. In all applications, data can be analyzed faster than ever, increasing uptime
and saving money.
The VERSAstream™ Data Access Switch VS-1200-S series is adaptable; all ports can be
configured to be input or output ports. These switches adapt with your ever-changing network.

explanation of each front panel legend follows:
3.2.1
Power
Two switching AC adapter power supplies are provided for each configurable unit. Although only
one power supply is required to power the module, use of a second independent power source is
strongly recommended to assure uninterrupted monitoring. Furthermore, connecting the second AC
input power socket to a different external power source circuit than the first AC input power source
eliminates power as a single point of failure. The power barrel sockets are located on the rear.
3.2.2
Any-to-Any Ports
Designated as INPUT or OUTPUT by 'Superuser' for use as input or output ports. See Serial and
Management Port - Command Line Interface - Superuser Commands - 'SET PORT MONITOR
(SE PO MO 27 )' section for more information.
Ports: 1 to 8 (VS-1210BT/SFP-S or VS-1208BT-S) and Ports: 1 to 4 (VS-1204BT-S):
are RJ45 connectors used for connection to network devices or tools. These jacks have integrated
LEDs that display line status and line speed of each port. See the Any-to-Any RJ-45 LED Display
Code table for LED display codes.
Ports: 9 to 10 (VS-1210BT/SFP-S) and Ports: 1 to 10 (VS-1210SFP-S): are sockets used with a
small form-factor plug (SFP) module for connection to network devices or tools. They can be
connected through fiber or copper, or a mix of each.
LX-BT/SX-BT - The LEDs located to the right of the SFP connectors are solid green indicating a link
has been detected between the respective Any-to-Any Rx port and network device/tool Tx port or
network segment. The LEDs are flashing green when data is passed.

Rear Panel Description
This section provides a description of the rear panel of the VS-1200-S series.
or
An explanation of each rear panel legend follows:
3.3.1
Serial DB9
The SERIAL connector port is a shielded DB9 Female and is cabled to the COM port of any
compatible network tool or PC where HyperTerminal software resides. It is the only port that can
easily connect the Management PC to set the IP address (default 192.168.1.1) for the first time.
3.3.2
Power Switch (SFP series)
The front panel POWER 1, POWER 2 LEDs are illuminated green, respectively, when the DC power
switch is depressed ON and DC power is available at both the two rear DC power sockets. Either
POWER 1, POWER 2 LED illuminated red indicates a defective power source and immediate
investigation as to the cause is required to insure redundant power integrity.
3.3.3

VS-1200-S Data Acccess Switch
Rear Labeling (SFP series)
Serial Number (SN) identifier, Media Access Control (MAC) address identifier, input power
requirements, certification compliance identifiers and various other information are provided on this
rear label.
3.3.5
Input Power
Two DC input power sockets are provided on the rear panel. The front panel POWER 1 and 2
LEDs are illuminated green, respectively:
(SFP series) - when the DC POWER switch is depressed ON and DC power is available at
both the two rear DC power sockets; or
(BT series) - when DC power is available at both the two rear DC power sockets.
Either POWER 1 or 2 LED not illuminated when powered, indicates a defective power source and
immediate investigation as to the cause is required to insure redundant power integrity.
Although only one switching AC adapter power supply is required to power the configurable unit,
use of a second independent power source is strongly recommended to assure uninterrupted
monitoring. Furthermore, connecting the second DC input power socket to a different external
power source circuit than the first DC input power source eliminates power as a single point of
failure.

Initial Configuration
IMPORTANT: Prior to initial configuration of the hardware, it is imperative to review the
entire Initial Configuration section before proceeding to the Installation section.
This section explains the considerations and requirements for the initial configuration of the VS1200-S series by a Command Line Interface (CLI) with a management PC using a terminal
emulation application connected either through the SERIAL DB9 port or though the MANAGEMENT
RJ45 port. Only one configuration session can be open at a time.
4.1
Command Line Interface (CLI)
The Command Line Interface (CLI ) is used to:
set IP address (default 192.168.1.1), Subnet Mask (default 255.255.255.0) and Gateway
(default 0.0.0.0)
set port speed and duplex
enables the user to select which ports or groups of ports receive the data stream copies
allows Any-to-Any ports to be configured as either inputs or outputs.
The VS-1200-S series factory default is off for all Any-to-Any ports.
4.1.1
Basic Functionality
Window Size Functionality: The CLI window is limited to 24 lines per screen and 80 characters
per line. If more data than can fit is presented, a “-more-” prompt is shown on the last line.
Character Handling: Printable character (ASCII code 32-126) and non-printable noted below:
Non-Printable Character
<enter key>
<backspace key>
Description
Executes command; places command in history buffer
Erases previous character entry; removes history buffer entry
Connectivity/Authentication Functionality: Connectivity to the configurable product is made
through the Management RJ45 or Serial DB9 port and authentication is required. This password
protection yields read-only access. To make configuration changes, Superuser (SU) mode must be
accessed with another password. See the 'Superuser Commands 24 ' section for more information.
Base Prompt: This is the text presented to the user logging in to use the CLI (default values
shown). All Usernames and passwords are case-sensitive.
Enter Username: Administrator

VS-1200-S Data Acccess Switch
Password Recovery
Password Recovery is provided for cases where a user has forgotten the Superuser and/or
Administrator login password. Password recovery is accomplished by connecting to the unit serially
using a HyperTerminal like program and rebooting the unit. As the power-up sequence is occurring,
depress <Control> <C>. Upon receipt of this command, a text recovery key will be generated and
displayed prior to the prompt. This key is used to reset the passwords. An example recovery key
prompt is: 617A6185774$
You must call Datacom Service Center with this recovery key in order to obtain the required
response to reset passwords. Given a valid reset response, the factory default passwords will be
saved in Non-Volatile memory. If an invalid response is given, a new recovery key will be calculated
and displayed at the prompt, as described above, after first clearing the screen.
4.1.3
Basic Commands (Read Only Access)
The following section shows the long form of the basic command set with the shortcut input for the
command noted in parenthesis. All commands, either the exact long form or the shortcut form, are

TELNET
Most network equipment and operating systems with a TCP/IP stack also support some kind of
TELNET service server for remote configuration. Security-related shortcomings have limited
TELNET (TErminaL NETwork) usage, although TELNET is still widely used when diagnosing
problems, manually "talking" to other services without specialized client software, and administration
of network elements such as integration and maintenance of core network elements.
IMPORTANT: For hostname, if initial IP Address HAS NOT BEEN configured, use 192.168.1.1
(default) or if initial IP Address HAS BEEN configured, use the Local Area Network address setting
input during initial IP Address configuration.

Exercise - CLI Setting Ports
PREMISE: The configurable VERSAstream allows multiple network devices/tools to receive the
combined data of multiple Ethernet network segments. All VERSAstream 1200-S Series’ Anyto-Any ports can be set to be inputs or outputs as shown in the 'Command Line Interface (CLI) 19 '
section.

VS-1200-S Data Acccess Switch
GOAL/SOLUTION: The exercise for the setup of a VS-1210BT/SFP-S shown is as follows:
Ports 1, 2, 3 and 4 have been setup as inputs.
Port 5 has been setup to output data to a Network IDS from Port 4’s input.
Port 6 has been setup to output aggregated data to a Probe from Port 3 and 4’s inputs.
Port 7 has been setup to output data to a Network IDS from Port 1’s input and returns TCP
resets from the Network IDS.
Port 8 has been setup to output data to a Network IDS from Port 2’s input and returns TCP
resets from the Network IDS.
Port 9 has been setup to output aggregated data to a Network IDS from Port 1 and 2’s inputs/
outputs and returns TCP resets from the Network IDS.
Port 10 has been setup to output aggregated data to a Probe from Port 1, 2, 3, and 4’s inputs.
NOTE: Port 9’s Network IDS’s network interface card (NIC) can handle both sides of the
network conversation at once. Port 7 and 8’s Network IDS’s network interface cards cannot
handle the whole conversation at once and must use two separate NICs for each side of the
conversation. It can be setup either way to fit your network devices/tools’ requirements.
CONFIGURATION: For the connections to be properly set, use the syntax below in the Command
Line Interface (CLI) to setup Any-to-Any ports. As the IP address (default 192.168.1.1) is set
during the 'Initial Configuration' it is not covered in this section, see the 'IP Address 33 ' section for
those steps. The connections in this exercise are setup in the CLI as shown below (syntax is shown
with either user > or Superuser # prompts):
For Initial Configuration, open HyperTerminal on your Management PC using the VS-1210BT/SFP
SERIAL DB9 port. Settings are found in the 'Initial Configuration', 'SERIAL Port Configuration
(DB9)', 'HyperTerminal 31 ' section.
Press Enter key, Enter key, then enter your Username (default: Administrator), Enter key,
Password (default: admin) and Enter key. Default prompt is the > symbol.

Initial Configuration
43
Then enter Superuser mode, at the user prompt >, enter SU, Enter key, and enter the Password
(default: password) and Enter key. Default prompt is the # symbol.
In Superuser mode use the following syntax for the different connections. This syntax sets the input/
output for Any-to-Any ports as well as the input/output for Tap ports.
The VS-1200-S Series factory default for all Any-to-Any ports is off.
Ensure there are no previous settings present, go through Ports 1-10 and set them to OFF as
shown:
# SET PORT MONITOR 1 OFF
# SET PORT MONITOR 2 OFF
# SET PORT MONITOR 3 OFF
# SET PORT MONITOR 4 OFF
# SET PORT MONITOR 5 OFF
# SET PORT MONITOR 6 OFF
# SET PORT MONITOR 7 OFF
# SET PORT MONITOR 8 OFF
# SET PORT MONITOR 9 OFF
# SET PORT MONITOR 10 OFF
Now you can begin setting the Tap and Monitor ports as to which port inputs the data and which
ports aggregate and/or output the data.
Port 1 is set as output for Ports 7 and 9’s input which is set with this syntax:
# SET PORT MONITOR 1 FROM 7,9
Port 2 is set as output for Ports 8 and 9’s input which is set with this syntax:
# SET PORT MONITOR 2 FROM 8,9

Port 5 is set as output for Port 4’s input which is set with this syntax:
# SET PORT MONITOR 5 FROM 4
Port 6 is set as output for Ports 3 and 4’s input which is set with this syntax:
# SET PORT MONITOR 6 FROM 3,4
Port 7 is set as output for Port 1’s input/output which is set with this syntax:
# SET PORT MONITOR 7 FROM 1
Port 8 is set as output for Port 2’s input/output which is set with this syntax:
# SET PORT MONITOR 8 FROM 2
Port 9 is set as output for Ports 1 and 2’s input/output which is set with this syntax:
# SET PORT MONITOR 9 FROM 1,2
Port 10 is set as output for Ports 1, 2, 3, and 4’s input which is set with this syntax:
# SET PORT MONITOR 10 FROM 1,2,3, 4
As a quick check, show port routing interface matrix with this syntax:
# SH PO RO

VS-1200-S Data Acccess Switch
SSH
Secure Shell (SSH ) is a network protocol that uses public key cryptography that allows secure
network services to be exchanged over an insecure network between two networked devices. SSH
Secure Shell with its array of unmatched security features is an essential tool in today's network
environment. It is a powerful guardian against the numerous security hazards that nowadays threaten
network communications.
Several different versions of the Secure Shell client and server exist. Please note that the different
versions may use different implementations of the SSH protocol, and therefore you may not be able
to connect to an SSH1 server using SSH2 client software, or vice versa.
Restrictions for Secure Shell Version 2 Support:
Execution Shell and remote command execution are the only applications supported.
Compression is not supported.
The following instructions illustrate a "typical" PuTTy SSH client configuration. This example was
prepared using PuTTy version 0.60. PuTTy.
Step 1. When you start PuTTy, you see the dialog box that allows you to control everything PuTTy
can do. You don't need to change most of the configuration options. To start the simplest kind of
session, all you need to do is to enter a few basic parameters.

Initial Configuration
47
Step 2. In the Host Name (or IP address) box, enter the host name or IP address of the SSH
Server you want to connect to. Once you have filled in the Host Name (or IP address), Connection
type: [default: SSH] and possibly Port [default: 22] settings, you are ready to connect.
Step 3. Press the Open button at the bottom of the dialog box, and PuTTy will begin trying to
connect you to the server. If you are using SSH to connect to the SSH Server for the first time, you
will probably see a message looking something like this:
The warning message above asks you whether you want to trust this host key or not. This is a
feature of the SSH protocol, it is designed to protect against a network attack known as spoofing
which redirects your connection to a different computer, so that you send your password to the
wrong machine. To prevent this attack, each SSH Server has a unique identifying code, called a
host key. So if you connect to a SSH Server and it sends you a different host key from the one you
were expecting, you will have the chance to abandon your connection before you type any private
information (such as a password) into it.
© 2011 Datacom Systems Inc
48
VS-1200-S Data Acccess Switch
Whether or not to trust the host key is your choice. Connecting within a company network, you
might feel that all the network users are on the same side and spoofing attacks are unlikely, so you
might choose to trust the key without checking it. Connecting across a hostile network (such as the
Internet) you should check with your system administrator.
Step 4. After you have connected, you will be asked to login as:, type Administrator (default
value) and press the Enter key. At the Administrator@hostname (or IP address)'s password:
prompt, type admin (default value) and press the Enter key to display the command line > prompt.
To see a list of available commands, at the > command line prompt, type ? and press the Enter key .
Step 5. Type Exit and press the Enter key to end the connection session. Close PuTTy.

SNMP Configuration
IMPORTANT: SNMP MUST be enabled and there MUST be at least one SNMP user for the
SNMP feature to work.
Once installation of the Link Aggregation Tap has been completed in your chosen network location,
if at least one SNMP user has not been created, refer to the CLI Command Set 20 to:
Step 1. SET SNMPv3 (SE V3)
30
[ON].
Step 2. SET SNMPV3 SUPERUSER (SE V3 SU)

Small Form-Factor Plug Module
This section provides information about small form-factor plug (SFP) modules. The SFP modules
are input/output devices that plug into a Gigabit Ethernet (GE) small form-factor (SFF) port, linking
the port with a 1000Base-X fiber or 1000Base-T copper network.
The fiber SFP module have a receiver port (Rx) and a transmitter port (Tx) that make up one optical
interface.The 1000Base-SX (short wavelength) SFP module operates on standard multimode fiber
networks compliant with the 1000Base SX standard. The 1000Base-LX (long wavelength) SFP
module operates on standard single-mode fiber networks compliant with the 1000Base LX
standard. The fiber SFP module is a 1000 Mbps optical interface in the form of an LC-type duplex
port that supports interfaces compliant with the 1000Base-X standard.
The copper SFP module is compliant with the 1000Base-T standard and operates on standard
Category 5 wiring and has an RJ45 connector.
4.8.1
Intallation Prerequisites
This section describes safety and compliance guidelines you should observe before you install an
SFP module in your VS-1200-S series unit.
NOTE: You can install and remove SFP modules with power on to the system; however, it is
strongly recommended that you do not install or remove the SFP module with fiber or copper cables
attached to it. Disconnect all cables before removing or installing a SFP module.
CAUTION: Prevent system problems, use only Datacom Systems Inc. supplied SFP modules.
4.8.2
Safety Guidelines
Before handling a SFP module, observe the following guidelines:
Copper and fiber SFP modules are static-sensitive. To prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD)
damage, follow your normal ESD handling procedures.
Fiber SFP modules are dust-sensitive. When storing a SFP module or when a fiber cable is not
plugged in, always keep plugs in the SFP module optical hole.
The most common source of contaminants in the fiber SFP optical aperture is debris picked up on
the terminations of the optical connectors. Use an alcohol swab or lint-free absorbent wipes to
clean the terminations of the optical connector.
WARNING: Fiber SFP modules are class 1 laser and LED products. Invisible laser radiation
may be emitted from the port opening when no fiber cable is connected, avoid exposure to
laser radiation and do not stare in open optical ports.

4.8.3
VS-1200-S Data Acccess Switch
Installing the SFP Module
SFP modules might ship already installed in your VS-1200-S, or they might arrive packaged
separately. This section describes how to install the SFP module.
NOTE: You can install SFP modules with power on to the system; however, it is strongly
recommended that you do not install the SFP module with fiber or copper cables attached to it.
Disconnect all cables before installing a SFP module.
CAUTION: Prevent system problems, use only Datacom Systems Inc. supplied SFP modules.
Step 1. Turn the SFP module so the latch is towards the center of the Gigabit Ethernet Interface
sockets. The SFP module is keyed so that it cannot be inserted incorrectly.
Step 2. Insert the SFP module into the SFF port and repeat Step 1 and Step 2 inserting other SFP
modules until completed.
Step 3. Attach the appropriate network cable to the LC-type or RJ45-type connector on the SFP
module. For fiber optic SFP modules you can use either simplex or duplex connectors. For simplex
connectors, two cables are required, one cable for transmit (Rx) and a second cable for receive
(Rx). For duplex connectors, only one cable that has both Tx and Rx connectors is required.
4.8.4
Removing the SFP Module
SFP modules might ship already installed in your VS-1200-S, or they might arrive packaged
separately. This section describes how to remove the SFP module.
NOTE: You can remove SFP modules with power on to the system; however, it is strongly
recommended that you do not remove the SFP module with fiber or copper cables attached to it.
Disconnect all cables before removing a SFP module.
Step 1. Disconnect the network cable from the SFP module LC-type or RJ45-type connector.
Step 2. Release the SFP module from the GE SFF port by moving the swing latch away from the
body of the unit.
Step 3. Slide the SFP module out of the GE SFF port.

Power
This section describes the power connection at the network installation site of the VS-1200-S
configurable series.
or
Two DC input power sockets are provided on the rear panel. The front panel POWER 1 and 2
LEDs are illuminated green, respectively:
(BT series) - when DC power is available at both the two rear DC power sockets; or
(SFP series) - when the DC POWER switch is depressed ON and DC power is available at
both the two rear DC power sockets.
Either POWER 1 or 2 LED not illuminated when powered, indicates a defective power source and
immediate investigation as to the cause is required to insure redundant power integrity.
1. Step 1. Using the supplied Power Adapters and AC Line Cords, plug the VS-1200-S series into
different circuit external power sources.Although only one power supply is required to power the
configurable unit, use of a second independent power source is strongly recommended to assure
uninterrupted monitoring. Furthermore, connecting the second Power Adapter to a different
external power source circuit than the first AC power source eliminates power as a single point of
failure.
5.2
Any-to-Any Connection
This section will focus on the Any-to-Any port connection of the typical VS-1200-S series hardware
installation.
NOTE: For the VS-1200 series with a Gigabit Ethernet (GE) small form-factor (SFF) port, the SFP
modules might ship already installed in your unit, or they might arrive packaged separately. See the
'Small Form-Factor Pluggable' section, 'Installing the SFP Module 50 ,' on how to install the SFP
module.

Application
This section will present techniques and applications describing the practical use and new remedies
for performing network analysis requirements using VS-1200-S series solutions.
7.1
Gathering the Data (HyperTerminal configuration example)
PREMISE: This application consists of workgroup switches that allow end users to access a group
of servers. The servers are connected to a single server switch and the users are distributed across
several workgroup switches. The security department wants to see all server bound access from the
users and server to server traffic.
GOAL: This application will use a VS-1210BT/SFP-S as follows:
1. TAP access to critical server
2. Aggregate SPAN.
3. Provide access for analysis, security and recording devices.
The first goal requires an external tap between the server switch and the critical financial server. The
tap copies all the data going to the financial server, and can't be shutdown like a SPAN port. The
tap allows enhanced visibility for security purposes.
The second goal requires that a SPAN port is configured on the workgoup switches. This will only
allow workgroup traffic to be replicated out the SPAN port.
The third goal involves aggregating and replicating traffic from the two previous goals for specific
security and network analysis to be done.
© 2011 Datacom Systems Inc
56
VS-1200-S Data Acccess Switch
SOLUTION: The VS-1210BT/SFP-S solves all goals by accepting the input from the two SPAN
ports along with the output from the TAP, aggregating and replicating the traffic to multiple ports and
ports 9 and 10 provide small form pluggables that allow either fiber or copper connectivity.
CONFIGURATION: The IP address (default 192.168.1.1), Subnet Mask and Default Gateway is set
during the 'Initial Configuration' for your Local Area Network settings and will not be covered in this
section, see the 'IP Address Configuration with HyperTerminal 33 ' section for those steps. Use the
syntax below in the Command Line Interface (CLI) to setup Tap and Any-to-Any ports (syntax is
shown with either user > or Superuser # prompts):
For configuration, open HyperTerminal on your Management PC using the VS-1210BT/SFP-S
SERIAL DB9 port. Settings are found in the 'Initial Configuration', 'SERIAL Port Configuration
(DB9)', 'HyperTerminal 31 ' section.
Press twice Enter key and Enter key. Enter Username (default: Administrator) and Enter key.
Enter Password (default: admin) and Enter key. Default prompt is the > symbol. Enter superuser
mode, type su and Enter key. Enter Password (default: password) and Enter key. Default prompt
is the # symbol. Use the following syntax to set the input/output for Any-to-Any ports as well as the
output for Tap ports.
The VS-1200-S Series factory default for all Any-to-Any ports is off.
Ensure there are no previous settings present, go through Ports 1-10 and set them to OFF as shown:
#

SET PORT MONITOR 6 OFF
SET PORT MONITOR 7 OFF
SET PORT MONITOR 8 OFF
SET PORT MONITOR 9 OFF
SET PORT MONITOR 10 OFF

57
Now you can begin setting the ports as to which port inputs the data and which ports aggregate and/
or output the data.
Port 4 is set as output for Port 1’s input which is set with this syntax:
# SET PORT MONITOR 4 FROM 1
Port 5 is set as output for Port 1’s input which is set with this syntax:
# SET PORT MONITOR 5 FROM 1
Port 6 is set as output for Port 2’s input which is set with this syntax:
# SET PORT MONITOR 6 FROM 2
Port 7 is set as output for Port 2’s input which is set with this syntax:
# SET PORT MONITOR 7 FROM 2
Port 8 is set as output for Port 3’s input which is set with this syntax:
# SET PORT MONITOR 8 FROM 3
Port 9 is set as output for Port 3’s input which is set with this syntax:
# SET PORT MONITOR 9 FROM 3
Port 10 is set as output for Ports 1, 2, and 3’s input which is set with this syntax:
# SET PORT MONITOR 10 FROM 1,2,3
CONCLUSION: The VS-1210BT/SFP-S provides the ability to aggregate data streams from TAPs
and from SPAN or Port Mirrors. Aggregating streams together improves overall visibility for the
tools and permits specific departmental devices to only see the traffic they need. The VS-1210BT/
SFP-S allows many devices to share a single SPAN output. The VS-1210BT/SFP-S Small Form
Pluggable capacity, allows users to send data across multimode or single-mode fiber.

All Pluggable in Optical Network (TELNET configuration
example)
PREMISE: This network application consists of several workgroup optical switches that allow end
users to access a group of servers.; The servers are all connected to a single server optical switch
and the users are distributed across several workgroup switches. The security department wants to
view all server bound access from the users and view server to server traffic.
GOAL: This application will use a VS-1210SFP-S as follows:
1. Fiber TAP access to optical networks
2. Aggregate traffic to provide access for analysis, security and recording devices.
The first goal requires an external fiber taps between the optical network devices. The tap makes a
copy of all the data going to the financial server, and can not be shutdown like a SPAN port. The
tap will allow enhanced visibility for security purposes.
The second goal involves aggregating and replicating traffic from the previous goal for specific
security and network analysis to be done.

Application
59
SOLUTION: The VS-1210SFP-S solves the goals by accepting both sides of each optical network
traffic from four optical tap full-duplex ports and aggregating and replicating the traffic to multiple
ports. The VS-1210SFP-S also provides media conversion with the small form pluggables so that
both copper and fiber ports are available for connectivity.
CONFIGURATION: The IP address (default 192.168.1.1), Subnet Mask and Default Gateway is set
during the 'Initial Configuration' for your Local Area Network settings and will not be covered in this
section, see the 'IP Address Configuration with TELNET 37 ' section for those steps. Use the syntax
below in the Command Line Interface (CLI) to setup Tap and Any-to-Any ports (syntax is shown
with either user > or Superuser # prompts):
For Configuration, open TELNET on your Management PC and open a hostname connection with
the VS-1210SFP-S MANAGEMENT RJ45 port. Settings are found in the 'Initial Configuration',
'MANAGEMENT Port Configuration (RJ45)', 'TELNET 33 ' section.
Enter Username (default: Administrator) and Enter key. Enter Password (default: admin) and Enter
key. Default prompt is the > symbol. Enter superuser mode, type su and Enter key. Enter
Password (default: password) and Enter key. Default prompt is the # symbol. Use the following
syntax to set the input/output for Any-to-Any ports as well as the output for Tap ports.

# SET PORT MONITOR 10 FROM 4
CONCLUSION: The VS-1210BT/SFP-S provides the ability to aggregate data streams from TAPs.
Aggregating streams together improves overall visibility for the tools and permits specific
departmental devices to only see the traffic they need. The VS-1210SFP-S allows many devices to
share a single output. The VS-1210SFP-S Small Form Pluggable capacity, allows users to send
data across multimode, single-mode fiber or copper.

1. Introduction
This memo defines a set of agent identities used to identify Datacom
SNMP agents and a set of agent capabilities used to convey the
capabilities of Datacom SNMP Agents.
2. The Internet-Standard SNMP Management Framework
For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current
Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of
RFC 3410 [RFC3410].
Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
the Management Information Base or MIB. MIB objects are generally
accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the
Structure of Management Information (SMI). This memo specifies a
MIB module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is described in STD
58, RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC
2580 [RFC2580].
3. Conventions
The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
"SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].
4. Overview of the Datacom Agent Capabilities MIB Module
This MIB module contains OBJECT-IDENTITY definitions used to
identify Datacom SNMP agents and contains AGENT-CAPABILITIES
statements used to express the capabilities of Datacom SNMP agents.
Each set of definitions is described in the following sections.
4.1 Agent Identities
The identity of a Datacom SNMP agent is exposed as the value of the
sysObjectID object. For additional information about the definition
of sysObject, see the SNMPv2-MIB [RFC 3418].
Datacom agent identities are defined within the Datacom agentIdents
subtree.
© 2011 Datacom Systems Inc
Appendix A - Agent Capabilities MIB
Examples of sysObjectID values retrieved from a Datacom SNMP agent
by a management application include the following:
sysObjectID.0 = agentIdCopperConfigurables218
sysObjectID.0 = agentIdAllPluggables227
4.2 AGENT-CAPABILITIES statements
The capabilities of a Datacom SNMP agent are exposed as a set of
values in the sysORTable. For additional information about the
object definitions comprising the sysORTable, see the SNMPv2-MIB
[RFC 3418].
Datacom agent capabilities are defined within the Datacom agentCaps
subtree.
Refer to section 6, "Mapping of the AGENT-CAPABILITIES macro" in RFC
2580, "Conformance Statements for SMIv2" [RFC2580] for further
information on the use of agent capabilities statements by
management application and SNMP agents.
An example of values exposed in the sysORTable follows:
sysORID.1 = dcomCapsSNMPv3Base
sysORDescr.1 = "supports SNMPv3"
sysORUpTime.1 = 54
sysORID.2 = dcomCapsAres1dot0dot0
sysORDescr.2 = "supports Datacom ARES version 1.0.0"
sysORUpTime.1 = 55

1. Introduction
This memo defines managed objects and notifications exposing status information about power
supplies associated with Datacom products.
2. The Internet-Standard SNMP Management Framework
For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current Internet-Standard
Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of RFC 3410 [RFC3410].
Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed the Management
Information Base or MIB. MIB objects are generally accessed through the Simple Network
Management Protocol (SNMP).
Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the Structure of Management
Information (SMI). This memo specifies a MIB module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is
described in STD 58, RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58,
RFC 2580 [RFC2580].
3. Conventions
The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
"SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].
4. Overview
This section provides an overview of this MIB module.
Section 4.1 provides a discussion on the use of SMIv2 Syntax and Textual-Conventions.
Section 4.2 discusses the relationship of this MIB module to other MIB modules.
Section 4.3 presents the organization of this MIB module.
Section 4.4 provides suggestions for management applications using this MIB module to monitor
the status of power supplies associated with Datacom products.
4.1 Use of SMIv2 Syntax and Textual-Conventions
This section discusses the SMIv2 syntax and Textual-Conventions (TC) used for the syntax of
SNMP managed objects defined within this MIB module.
4.1.1 SMIv2 Syntax
This section discusses the syntax types defined in the 'Structure of Management Information
Version 2 (SMIv2)' [RFC2578] and used in this MIB module.
4.1.1.1 Unsigned32
There is one object defined in this MIB module using the SMIv2 Unsigned32 syntax type.
© 2011 Datacom Systems Inc
Appendix B - Power Supply MIB
73
An instance of an object definition using the Unsigned32 syntax type can represent an integer
value between 0 and 2^32-1 inclusive (0 to 4,294,967,295 decimal).
The object definition using the Unsigned32 syntax type follows:
in the dcomPowerSupplyStatusTable - dcomPowerSupplyIndex
The dcomPowerSupplyIndex object defines the SNMP index component associated with a
power supply.
4.1.1.2 INTEGER
There is one object defined in this MIB module using the SMIv2 INTEGER syntax type.
An instance of an object definition using the INTEGER syntax type is used to represent an integer
value as a named-number enumeration. Only named-numbers defined in the enumeration may be
present as a value.
The object definition using the INTEGER syntax type follows:
in the dcomPowerSupplyStatusTable - dcomPowerSupplyStatus
The dcomPowerSupplyStatus object defines the current state of a power supply. The namednumber enumerated values are as follow:
stateUnknown(1) - the current state is 'unknown'
stateDown(2) - the current state is 'down'
stateUp(3) - the current state is 'up'
4.2 SNMPv2-TC Textual Conventions
This section discusses Textual Conventions defined in the SNMPv2-TC [RFC2579] and used in
this MIB module.
4.2.1 TimeStamp
There is one object defined in this MIB module using the SMIv2 TimeStamp TC.
An object using the SMIv2 TimeStamp TC exposes a notion of local time relative to a local time
source. In the SNMP, the sysUpTime [RFC3418] object provides this local time source.
The value of an instance of an object using the TimeStamp TC changes when a specific event
occurs, as described in its description clause.
The SNMP managed objects using a TimeStamp TC follow:
in the dcomPowerSupplyStatusTable - dcomPowerSupplyLastChange
A change in the value of a dcomPowerSupplyLastChange instance indicates the time at which a
power supply transitioned into its current state.
A value of zero(0) indicates that a power supply was already in its current state when the
SNMP agent last re-initialized.

VS-1200-S Data Acccess Switch
4.3 Relationship to Other MIB Modules
This section discusses the relationship of this MIB module to MIB modules published by the
Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).
4.3.1 ENTITY-MIB and ENTITY-STATE-MIB
The ENTITY-MIB and ENTITY-STATE-MIB are designed to expose management
information about the full inventory of components associated with a managed system. These
components include power supplies.
In contrast, this MIB module addresses the specific requirement for exposing management
information about just the power supplies associated with Datacom products. Other than power
supplies, no management information is exposed for components comprising Datacom products.
An SNMP agent that implements both the ENTITY-MIB and the ENTITY-STATE-MIB is
capable of exposing the same management information about power supplies as exposed by this
MIB module.
However, within the Internet community, the usual expectations for an implementation of the
ENTITY-MIB and ENTITY-STATE-MIB is for fully populated tables containing management
information about the complete inventory of components associated with a managed system.
Thus, this MIB module is used to expose management information relevant to power supplies
associated with Datacom products.
Note, that the use of this MIB module does not preclude the potential for future use of the
ENTITY-MIB and ENTITY-STATE-MIB for Datacom products.
4.4 Organization of This MIB Module
This MIB module organizes its object definitions into one conceptual table. This table is
discussed in the following section.
There are also two notification definitions contained in this MIB module. These notifications are
discussed in a subsequent section.
4.4.1 The dcomPowerSupplyStatusTable
This table contains object definitions providing essential statistics for power supplies associated
with the managed system.
An entry exists in this table for each power supply associated with the managed system.
A unique value for the dcomPowerSupplyIndex object identifies each power supply.
The value of the dcomPowerSupplyStatus object indicates the current state of a power supply.
A value of 'stateDown(2)' indicates the power suppply is not operating or is not plugged in. A
value of 'stateUp(3)' indicates the power supply is operating as intended.
A dcomPowerSupplyStatus value of 'stateUnknown(1)' indicates the current state of the power
© 2011 Datacom Systems Inc
Appendix B - Power Supply MIB
75
supply is unknown. This value is defined for architectural purposes and is unlikely to be
observed in deployed systems.
The value of the dcomPowerSupplyLastChange object provides a TimeStamp indication of
when a power supply entered its current state. The special value of zero(0) indicates a power
supply was already in its current state when the SNMP agent last re-initialized.
4.4.2 Event Notifications
This MIB module defines two event notifications for reporting state transitions associated with
power supplies. These notifications are discussed in the following sections.
4.4.2.1 dcomPowerSupplyEventUp
A dcomPowerSupplyEventUp event notification provides an indication that a power supply has
transitioned into the 'up' state.
The power supply involved in this event is identified by the dcomPowerSupplyIndex value
appended to the object name of the dcomPowerSupplyStatus variable binding.
4.4.2.2 dcomPowerSupplyEventDown
A dcomPowerSupplyEventUp event notification provides an indication that a power supply has
transitioned into the 'down' state.
The power supply involved in this event is identified by the dcomPowerSupplyIndex value
appended to the object name of the dcomPowerSupplyStatus variable binding.
4.5 Notes for Management Applications
- when the SNMP agent re-initializes, subsequent to receiving the coldStart event notification, a
management application will receive a dcomPowerSupplyEventDown event notification for any
power supply currently in the 'down' state.
- when a dcomPowerSupplyEventDown event notification is received, a management
application SHOULD determine why the power supply is not functioning. If it is determined that
the power supply has failed, then make arrangements to order and install an appropriate
Datacom replacement unit for the failed power supply. If it is determined that the power supply
is unplugged or otherwise disconnected from its electrical source, then make arrangements to replug and reconnect the power supply.
- when a dcomPowerSupplyEventUp event notification is received, a management application
SHOULD determine which previously received dcomPowerSupplyEventDown event this
dcomPowerSupplyEventUp event notification resolves.

7. Security Considerations
There are no management objects defined in this MIB module that have a MAX-ACCESS
clause of read-write and/or read-create. So, if this MIB module is implemented correctly, then
there is no risk that an intruder can alter or create any management objects of this MIB module
via direct SNMP SET operations.
None of the readable objects in this MIB module (i.e., objects with a MAX-ACCESS other
than not-accessible) are considered sensitive or vulnerable within network environments.
SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 did not include adequate security. Even if the network itself is

VS-1200-S Data Acccess Switch
secure (for example by using IPsec), even then, there is no control as to who on the secure
network is allowed to access and GET/SET (read/change/create/delete) the objects in this MIB
module.
It is RECOMMENDED that implementers consider the security features as provided by the
SNMPv3 framework (see [RFC3410], section 8), including full support for the SNMPv3
cryptographic mechanisms (for authentication and privacy).
Further, deployment of SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 is NOT RECOMMENDED.
Instead, it is RECOMMENDED to deploy SNMPv3 and to enable cryptographic security. It is
then a customer/operator responsibility to ensure that the SNMP entity giving access to an
instance of this MIB module is properly configured to give access to the objects only to those
principals (users) that have legitimate rights to indeed GET or SET (change/create/delete) them.

1. Introduction
This memo defines the top level structure of management information
and administrative registrations within the Datacom private
enterprise namespace.
2. The Internet-Standard SNMP Management Framework
For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current
Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of
RFC 3410 [RFC3410].
Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
the Management Information Base or MIB. MIB objects are generally
accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the
Structure of Management Information (SMI). This memo specifies a
MIB module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is described in STD
58, RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC
2580 [RFC2580].
3. Conventions
The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
"SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].
4. The Datacom Structure of Management Information
Datacom enterprise MIB modules are consistent with and extend as
appropriate, management objects defined within IETF standards track
MIB modules.
The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) has assigned Datacom
the private enterprise number 9762. An up-to-date list of private
enterprise number assignments is maintained by IANA at
http://www.iana.org/assignments/enterprise-numbers.
The organization of the datacom(9762) subtree follows:
agentIdents(1)
The agentIdents subtree provides an area for OBJECT-IDENTITY
definitions used for the identification of Datacom SNMP

agents.
Definitions occur within the DATACOM-AGENT-CAPS MIB
module.
agentCaps(2)
The agentCaps subtree provides an area AGENT-CAPABILITIES
statements used to indicate the capabilities of Datacom SNMP
agents.
Definitions occur within the DATACOM-AGENT-CAPS MIB
module.
datacomMibs(3)
The datacomMibs subtree provides an area for MODULE-IDENTITY
definitions with Datacom MIB modules.
MODULE-IDENTITY, OBJECT-TYPE, NOTIFICATION-TYPE,
MODULE-COMPLIANCE, OBJECT-GROUP and NOTIFICATION-GROUP
definitions occur within the respective Datacom MIB module.
Additions and deprecations to assignments within the top level of
the Datacom private enterprise name space may occur from time to
time as documented in revisions to this memo.

7. Security Considerations
This module does not define any management objects. Instead, it
defines the top level assignments within the Datacom enterprise name
space.
