PN 613-50435-00 Rev A 1 Allied Telesyn, Inc. AT-S45 Version 1.0.5 Management Software Release Notes Note The procedures assume that you have already obtained the new version of AT-S45 management software and have stored it on the computer from which you will be performing the procedure. Downloading the AT-S45 Bootloader and Image File Using TFTP The procedure in this section explains how to use TFTP to download the new bootloader and image file onto a switch. (The bootloader must be downloaded first.) This procedure requires TFTP server software. Allied Telesyn offers a version of the software, called AT-TFTP, on its web site at http://www.alliedtelesyn.co.nz/support/rapier/download.html. This procedure explains how to configure the AT-TFTP server software from Allied Telesyn to download the new software: 1. From the Start Menu select "Programs > Allied Telesyn AT-TFTP Server 1.8 > AT-TFTP Server 1.8". 2. Start AT-TFTP Server 1.8. 2. and select "Options" from the File menu to display the "Set Preferences" dialog box. • The "Default file transfer directory" specifies the directory that AT-TFTP Server will read from or write to, for file requests that do not include a directory specification. • To prevent unauthorized access to private directories, enter a path name in the "Restrict to directory" field. The AT-TFTP Server will only use the specified directory, even if file requests explicitly reference other directories. • For added security, select the "Read only" option to ensure that files can be read from the PC but not written to the PC. If you want to use the PC to archive scripts created using the SAVE CONFIG command, you must enable the "Read Write" option. 3. Make any required changes and click "OK". On the AT-9410GB switch, do the following: 1. Go to the Main Menu -> Tools -> Software Upgrade -> TFTP Upgrade Boot Code Menu or TFTP Upgrade Image Code. 2. Assign the Server IP Address and Image File Name. 3. Select Upgrade Image and Reboot and press Y for Yes. 4. After the download is complete, you are prompted on whether you want to reset the switch. Type Y for Yes. 5. Wait for the unit to load the image to flash and reboot. When the prompt for the user name appears, the process is complete. Note Do not reboot the switch while an image file is being loaded into flash and the unit is rebooting. PN 613-50435-00 Rev A 2 Allied Telesyn, Inc.

New AT-S45 Version 1.0.5 Resolved Issues • The issue is resolved where the switch stopped switching traffic and could not be managed remotely. This issue was seen when the switch received a multicast or broadcast packet with the fragment bit set followed by approximately 10 Kbytes of multicast or broadcast data. Operational Notes • Port Security Trap The port security trap is not supported. • Port-based VLAN Mode The port-based VLAN mode described in pages 104 to 108 and 212 to 215 of the AT-S45 Management Software User’s Guide for the AT-9410GB Switch is no longer supported. PN 613-50435-00 Rev A 6 Allied Telesyn, Inc. AT-S45 Version 1.0.5 Management Software Release Notes • Tagged Frames on Untagged Ports A tagged frame will be forwarded to the destination port as long as there is an entry in the MAC address table that matches the VID plus the destination MAC address, even if the port receiving the frame is not a member of the VLAN that corresponds to the tagged frame’s VID. Previous Version 1.0.4 Resolved Issues • The problem has been resolved where the IP address and Subnet Mask were not allowed to be from different classes. Since this has been fixed, a class C IP address may be entered with a Class B Subnet Mask, as an example. • The problem has been resolved where all member ports would not link when configured for 100 MB/Full Duplex mode and "straight" cables were connected to the ports. Member ports of a trunk are now kept in the Auto-Negotiation mode, which allows the auto MDI/MDIX feature and either straight or crossover cables to be utilized. • The problem has been resolved where the DHCP IP address was not received after the DHCP feature was enabled without rebooting the switch. Now, rebooting the switch is not a requirement to receive an IP address when this feature is enabled. • The problem has been resolved where the Port Mirroring parameters were not set to the factory default values when the switch was set to factory defaults. Previous Version 1.0.2 Resolved Issues • Losing IP Address at Reset The IP address was lost when the unit was reset. This problem has been resolved. • MAC Addresses on Trunk Ports The ports of a port trunk were not sharing learned MAC addresses. This problem has been resolved. • Telnet Management Session A Telnet management session would periodically fail. This problem has been resolved. • Limited Security Mode The management software did not disable a port that had exceeded its maximum number of MAC addresses while operating in the Limited security mode. This problem has been resolved. • Pinging a Device in a Different Subnet Pining a nonexistent end-node using an IP address of a different subnet caused the management software to fail. This problem has been resolved. • Spanning Tree Protocol The STP feature would fail to function correctly. This problem has been resolved. PN 613-50435-00 Rev A 7 Allied Telesyn, Inc. AT-S45 Version 1.0.5 Management Software Release Notes • Web Browser Management Session Starting a web browser management session would periodically fail. This problem has been resolved. • SNMP Using SNMP returned the wrong version number. This issue has been resolved. • Port MAC Addresses The management software no longer displays the MAC addresses of the individual switch ports in the MAC address table. • Static MAC Addresses Static MAC addresses were periodically dropped from the MAC address table. This issue has been resolved. • Frame Size Counters The 64, 128-255 frame size counters may display incorrect values. Previous Versions 1.00E and 1.00 Resolved Issues • GVRP Status Changing the GVRP status of a port from Dynamic to Forbidden would periodically fail or would remove all ports from a VLAN. This problem has been resolved. • ICMP Redirect Packets ICMP redirect packets caused the switch to stop forwarding packets. This problem has been resolved.
