AirLive Ether-GSH8TW v2 / 8TW+v2 User’s Manual
Chapter 1 Introduction
Ether-GSH8TW v2/GSH8TW+ v2 is high speed switch that provides up to 8 10/100/1000Mbps copper
Ethernet ports (2 x MiniGBIC for Ether-8TW+ v2). Besides, it provides many advanced functions for nowadays
variety of network application but at lower costs. Users doesn’t have to learn many sophisticated management
functions which are usually shown in SNMP switch but just to learn some simple or common control or setting
function through either out-of-band RS232 port or Ethernet port. However, some new, advanced and important
functions such as Tag-VLAN, Trunking, RSTP and IGMP are also supported same as SNMP switch. This
means, users doesn’t have to pay high costs as traditional layer 2 SNMP switch while one still can get
advanced or common function to meet the requirements of an advanced network application. This makes it
very suitable for small or medium size company to build up simple network at beginning phase with lower cost.
An optional long-ear accessory also makes it possible to operate in the rack mount environment.
Non-blocking and maximum wire speed performance is designed on all switched ports. It not only supports
auto-negotiation but also AUTO-MDIX function on all switched 8 10/100/1000M RJ-45 Gigabit copper ports no
matter running with half or full duplex mode. These functions make users easy to use and reduce the matching
effort between straight and cross-over line issues.
8G web smart switch supports both port-based and 802.1Q (tag-based) VLAN to catch-up the application
needed for coming VLAN age. To increase bandwidth application, it supports up to 4 trunk groups with
maximum 8 ports on one trunk, moreover, these trunk ports are with fair-over function to provide redundant
back-up when one or some of trunk ports malfunction. Moreover, to reduce convergent time of STP protocol,
Rapid STP (RSTP) is supported. To support multicast application IGMP is also supported.
Full LED status display eases user’s installation and inspection, a reset button is also provided to allow users
to easily go back to default setting.

Chapter 2 Web management
After login is successfully validated, the switch’s home page will show up. The left part on the page provides
the function menus, while the right part provides the individual configuration value or system parameters value.
Function manuals are divided into three categories: Configuration, Monitoring and Maintenance, and all
functions are shown briefly below.
6
AirLive Ether-GSHTW v2 / 8TW+v2 User’s Manual
2.1 Configurations
2.1.1 System
The system diagram shows general common system information, they are H/W, F/W version, MAC address, IP
address, subnet mask, IP gateway, default VLAN value of management port, name, password, timeout value,
and SNMP communities…etc. Once the user finish the setting, he must press the “ Apply “ button to execute all
his setting, and whenever he needs, he may press the “ Refresh “ button to get updated status of system
information.
7
AirLive Ether-GSH8TW v2 / 8TW+v2 User’s Manual
2.1.1.1 DHCP
The default DHCP is off, so Default IP or user defined IP is used when this machine is turning-ON, but if this
switch needs an IP assigned from DHCP server, user may click the square field and then press “ Apply “ to get
an IP which will be assigned by DCHP server “. User must be aware that if he enables DHCP from web page,
and if the DHCP server is working, then after enabling DHCP, he will lose contact of the web page, because
the IP address has been changed. At this moment, go through terminal mode and check configuration of
IP, then get Dynamic IP to return to web page.
2.1.1.2 Relocate HTTP port number
The default port number of HTTP command is 80, but unauthorized users may intrude this switch if he knows
the IP of this switch. Network manager may relocate this port number to other value, from 1024 to 65535, the
same idea as above, once network manager change the value of HTTP’s port number, he will lose contact and
he must regain web page by command modified as below:
http://192.168.1.100:port_value
2.1.1.3 Tag VLAN management group (CPU port)
At first time you turn on this device, all ports belong to default VLAN ID group (VID = 1), so they can
communicate to each other, and hence any port can be used as web management port to talk with CPU port
inside. But, for example, assume user uses port 1 as web management port, then user create VLAN ID = 10 on
port 7,8 and create another VLAN ID = 20 on port 5,6, now 3 VLAN groups will be shown on VLAN group table
after he press “ Apply “ button. If VLAN 10 and VLAN ID 20 must be isolated, then user must delete member
port 5,6,7,8 in default VLAN group (VID = 1). Be aware that CPU port still remains on VID = 1 group now, user
can only perform web management through one of 4 ports, that is port 1,2,3,4, but if user want to perform
web management from other port in existing different VLAN group, for example port 8 in VID =10, then
after creating new VLAN groups, he must go to system configuration page, and select Tag VLAN
Management Group to 10 by pressing “ Apply “ command, then move RJ-45 ( web management port )
from port 1 to port 8, then user can perform web management from new RJ-45 port again. But if user forgets
which group that CPU belongs to, there are two ways to solve this condition below.
(1) Through console port, check configuration of IP if he gets password
(2) Press “Reset” button few seconds, let system return to default settings, that is,
---- >> IP address = 192.168.1.100; … VID = 1, all settings return to factory default

AirLive Ether-GSHTW v2 / 8TW+v2 User’s Manual
2.1.2 Ports
Port status page always shows current port status of all 8 ports. User can set link mode, enable or disable flow
control and jumbo frame. However, be noticed that the jumbo frame is global setting, it can’t be set on
individual port but on all ports at a time. A default diagram is shown below.
Choose and click the ports you want to set. For example, choose port 1, and set port 1 Flow Control enable,
then press “Apply”. After execution, diagram will be shown as below.

AirLive Ether-GSH8TW v2 / 8TW+v2 User’s Manual
2.1.3 Port-based VLAN
Port-based VLAN is a kind of VLAN which is a group of ports marked as a kind by group ID. Different VLAN
(different ID) can’t communicate to each other. Before the setting, user must be aware of that there is a default
Port-based VLAN, his group ID is 1. So, if user wants to set another new port-based VLAN, better set another
group ID rather than 1. After pressing “Apply” button, the screen will show an updated VLAN Group table no
matter user add a new group or delete a VLAN group.
The important thing is that port-based VLAN is valid
only within the same device; it will never be valid cross the devices. A default diagram is shown below.
Choose and click the ports you want to group. For example, choose port 1, port 2 and set their group ID 2, then
press “Apply”. After execution, diagram will be shown as below.
10
AirLive Ether-GSHTW v2 / 8TW+v2 User’s Manual
2.1.4 Tag-based VLAN
Tag-based VLAN is another kind of VLAN which is a group of ports marked as same kind by assigning a
tag-value on each port. Same as port-based VLAN, different VLAN (different ID) can’t communicate to each
other, and before the setting, there is a default tag-based VLAN, which ID is 1 (VLAN ID = 1). So, if user wants
to create another new tag-based VLAN, better set another VLAN ID rather than 1 (tag-based VALN ID ranged
from 1 ~ 4094). After pressing “Apply” button, the screen will show a new tag-based VLAN Group table, on the
contrary, a tag-VLAN will be vanished if user deletes a VLAN group.
Two important things must be
emphasized here, one is that tag-based VLAN members are valid not only within same device, but also cross
the devices as long as they are with same VLAN ID; the other important thing is user must keep in mind that
the VLAN ID of CPU port must be one of the VLAN group if user wants to manage through one of the
ports of that VLAN group. Otherwise, if there is no port with same VLAN ID as CPU port, the web
management, in-band control, will be failed because different VLAN (different ID) can’t communicate to each
other.
A default diagram is shown below.
When you first turn on this device, all ports belong to default VLAN ID group (VID = 1), so they can
communicate to each other, and hence any port can be used as web management port to talk with CPU port
inside. But, for example, assume user uses port 1 as web management port, then user create VLAN ID = 10 on
port 7, 8 and create another VLAN ID = 20 on port 5, 6. Now 3 VLAN groups will be shown on VLAN group
table after he presses “Apply” button.
11
AirLive Ether-GSH8TW v2 / 8TW+v2 User’s Manual
If VLAN 10 and VLAN ID 20 must be isolated, then user must delete member port 5,6,7,8 in default VLAN
group (VID = 1). See below.
Be aware that CPU port still remains on VID = 1 group now, user can only perform web management through
one of 4 ports, which is port 1,2,3,4. But if user want to perform web management from other port existing
in different VLAN group, for example port 8 in VID =10, then after creating new VLAN groups, he must
go to System Configuration page, and select Tag VLAN Management Group to 10 by pressing “Apply”
command, then move RJ-45 (web management port) from port 1 to port 8, then user can perform web
management from new RJ-45 port again. But if user forgets what group that CPU belongs to, there are two
ways to solve this condition below.
(1) Through console port, check Configuration of IP if he gets password
(2) Press “Reset” button few seconds, let system return to default settings, that is,
---- >> IP address = 192.168.1.100; … VID = 1, all settings return to factory default
After assigning a tag VLAN, there are some attributes parameters that must be assigned for some tag-VLAN
application. Here below are explanation when entering the “Port Config”, they are:
12
AirLive Ether-GSHTW v2 / 8TW+v2 User’s Manual
1. VLAN Aware mode:
z
Enable - When Tag-VLAN function is applied on this port, user may enable VLAN Aware associated with
this port, and then ingress frames and egress frames will be handled according to the following
parameters’ setting.
z
Disable – default state, this means, switch doesn’t do VLAN tag stripping and insertion.
2. Ingress filtering:
z
Enable - Check ingress frame VLAN ID. Ingress frame will be dropped if this frame's VID is not the same
as the VID of the ingress port which belongs to a member of a ”VLAN group”
z
Disable – the Ingress frame will be flood if VID is not the same
3. Accept Packet Type:
z
ALL - Accept all ingress frames
z
Tagged only - Only accept ingress frames with VLAN tag
4. Port VID:
Set Port VID = value (1 ~ 4096), then an untagged ingress frame will bear this value at its VID. Usually this
port is connected to a un-tag device (legacy device), then this frame becomes a tagged frame, hence, it can be
handled inside the switch as a member of the same VID group. Set "None" for those tagged frames, usually
this port is now connected to a tag-device.
5. Egress Tag enabled
When Egress Tag is enabled, then, the tag will be added into egress frames and then sent out to the device
that supports tagged-VLAN. When this is disabled, tag will not be added into egress frame and then sent to
device that does not support tagged-VLAN.

2.1.5 Port Trunking
A default diagram is shown below, and up to 4 groups are provided.
Choose and click the trunk ports you want to group. For example, choose port 1, port 2 into group 1, then press
“Apply”. After execution, diagram will be shown as below.

2.1.6 Port Mirroring
A default diagram is shown below.
Choose and click the ports you want to monitor. For example, choose port 2 is mirror port, and the mirror
source is port 5, and then press “Apply”. After execution, diagram will be shown as below.
15
AirLive Ether-GSH8TW v2 / 8TW+v2 User’s Manual
2.1.7 Quality of Service
There are 4 class priorities that can be set for each port: Low, Normal, Medium and High. Because there are 8
priority levels (0 ~ 7) for each port, so 8 priorities map into 4 classes must be done in this QoS control.
There are 3 QoS Mode can be chosen: Port-based, 802.1P and DSCP. The frames send not only per priority
setting but also per Queue Mode setting. Strict Mode means highest priority setting gets first service to send
frames, the lower priority frames must wait until all other higher priority frames are sent (serviced), and then it
gets service. WRR Mode means different priorities are with different weighting to get service, that is, within a
time period. The service times (chance) are a ratio among these 4 classes, user may choose one of preset
setting from the manual. A default diagram with Strict Queue Mode is shown below.
Choose the port-based priority level for each port you want to set, and then ports will get priority service as
setting. For example, under Strict Mode, Port 5,6,7,8 are set as “ low ”, port 1,2,3,4 are set as high, medium,
normal and low. Then, after “Apply”, usually port 1 will get service at most of time and even all of the time.
When users choose the 802.1P priority, this means frames are with VLAN Tag inside the switch. The
priority in the Tagged frame (4 bytes Tag in total) must be set by application program, or set by user in
Default Priority Table if the device connected to that port is legacy device which does not support Tag. That
is, user must set Priority for legacy device at each legacy port. 8 priority levels map into 4 classes also
must be done the same as explained in previous paragraph.

2.1.8 Storm Control
A default diagram is shown below.
Choose and click the type of storm you want to control. For example, choose Broadcast storm with 3,964
frames per second as upper limit, once the Broadcast frame rate is higher than 3,964 frames per second, this
port will be disabled. Press “Apply”, after execution, diagram will be shown below.

AirLive Ether-GSHTW v2 / 8TW+v2 User’s Manual
2.1.9 LACP
Different from the static port trunking, LACP provides another way to dynamically aggregate port to a group
(trunk) according to IEEE 802.3ad. Once the protocol is enabled, the ports to be trunked by LACP will be
executed automatically after press “Apply”. A default diagram is shown below.
Two parameters need to be set per port basis in this webpage:
„
Protocol Enabled – to enable/disable LACP protocol for a port.
„
Key Value – a number (1 ~ 255) to identify the LACP group for a port. All member ports in a LACP

2.1.10 RSTP
The Spanning-Tree Protocol (STP) is IEEE 802.1d standardized method for avoiding loops in switched
networks. Enable STP to ensure that only one path at a time is active between any two nodes on the network.
The Rapid-Spanning-Tree-Protocol (RSTP) is a more advanced protocol than STP according to IEEE 802.1w
standard. RSTP can shorten spanning tree convergent time while network topology is changed. A default
diagram is shown below.

Use the following parameters in the webpage to configure RSTP function:
„
System Configuration
¾
System Priority – A value to identify the root bridge. The bridge with lowest value has the
highest priority and is selected as the root. 16 numbers are provided in this field from 0 to
61140 in increments of 4096.
¾
Hello Time -- the number of seconds among the transmission of Spanning-Tree Protocol
configuration messages. Enter a number 1 through 10. (default is 2)
¾
Max Age – the number of second bridge waits without receiving Spanning-Tree Protocol
configuration messages before attempting a reconfiguration. Enter a number 6 through 40.
(default is 20)
¾
Forward Delay -- the number of seconds a port waits before changing from its Spanning-Tree
Protocol learning and listening states to the forwarding state. Enter a number 4 through 30.
(default is 15)
¾
„
Force Version – normal: use RSTP; compatible: compatible with old STP protocol
Port Configuration
¾
Aggregations – Enable/disable the RSTP protocol on aggregation links
¾
Protocol Enabled – Enable/disable the RSTP protocol per port basis
¾
Edge – Enable/disable to expect a port to be an edge port (an end station) or a link to another
STP device
¾
Path Cost – A value on a port that switch uses to determine which port are the forwarding
ports. The lowest number is forwarding ports. The value can be set from 1 to 200000000 or
“auto” to be automatically generated.

2.1.11 IGMP
The Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) is an internal protocol of the Internet Protocol (IP) suite.
IGMP can manage the multicast traffic if the members (switches, router or other network devices) of group
support IGMP. This switch provides IGMP snooping feature to detect IGMP queries, report packets and
manage the IP multicast traffic through the switch. This feature can limit the forwarding multicast frames only to
those ports that are a member of multicast group. Only IPv4 IGMP frames are recognized for this system.
The following parameters are provided for configuring IGMP snooping for this system:
„
IGMP Enabled – to globally enable/disable IGMP snooping function
„
Router Ports – the port that is usually with source of multicast traffic stream
„
Unregistered IPMC Flooding Enabled – to set forwarding option for unregistered (not joined) IP
multicast traffic.
Enabled: to flood frames to every port
Disable: to forward frames only to those IGMP member ports
Two options can be set for each existing group:
„
IGMP Snooping Enabled – to enable/disable snooping IGMP frames
„
IGMP Querying Enabled – to enable/disable sending IGMP querying frames, in one
Ethernet section, there is only one Querier, and Querier is usually in
router device.
For example, video traffic comes from port 8 which is connected to a router, and port 3,4,5 are connected to
IGMP member, then the configuration may be set as below.

Chapter 3 Terminal Mode management
Terminal mode is easy to operate, it is useful when in-band Ethernet communication is malfunctioned, or user
is used to CLI interface operation, or he wants to know some parameter setting. For example, before in-band
management through Ethernet, user has to know the IP address, subnet mask …etc, he may get this
information by checking the configuration under IP command, he also may try to modify the IP address, CPU
management group used in tag-VLAN configuration operation, or any other function through terminal mode.
And more conveniently, if user is used to configure the tag-VALN through terminal mode, he won’t be interfered
by the CPU management group issue; CPU is always being connected with him while he is configuring the
VLAN.
User must set up the terminal parameters, such as hyper terminal in Microsoft Window.
Select COM #: COM 1, COM 2 …
Set Baud rate to: 115,200, per second
Set Attribute to 8, None, 1, None (8 bit, No parity, 1 stop bit, No protocol in hardware)
Once terminal is connected, enter the password, the basic operation are shown, and then when press
“?” the commands at top level will be shown as below.
Key in “Command” and then key in “?”, second level will be shown, for example:
