SAFETY INFORMATION
CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS
THE FE-100F3 FAST ETHERNET INTERFACE MODULE, FPIM-05 AND
FPIM-07 FDDI PORT INTERFACE MODULES, AND APIM-29 ATM
PORT INTERFACE MODULE USE CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS.
READ THE FOLLOWING SAFETY INFORMATION BEFORE
INSTALLING OR OPERATING THESE MODULES.
The Class 1 laser transceivers use an optical feedback loop to maintain Class 1 operation limits. This
control loop eliminates the need for maintenance checks or adjustments. The output is factory set, and
does not allow any user adjustment. Class 1 Laser transceivers comply with the following safety
standards:
• 21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (FDA).
• IEC Publication 825 (International Electrotechnical Commission).
• CENELEC EN 60825 (European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization).
When operating within their performance limitations, laser transceiver output meets the Class 1
accessible emission limit of all three standards. Class 1 levels of laser radiation are not considered
hazardous.
SAFETY INFORMATION
CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS
LASER RADIATION AND CONNECTORS
When the connector is in place, all laser radiation remains within the fiber. The maximum amount of
radiant power exiting the fiber (under normal conditions) is -12.6 dBm or 55 x 10-6 watts.
Removing the optical connector from the transceiver allows laser radiation to emit directly from the
optical port. The maximum radiance from the optical port (under worst case conditions) is
0.8 W cm-2 or 8 x 103 W m2 sr-1.
Do not use optical instruments to view the laser output. The use of optical instruments to view
laser output increases eye hazard. When viewing the output optical port, power must be
removed from the network adapter.

2H22-08R Overview
1.3
2H22-08R OVERVIEW
The 2H22-08R is a Fast Ethernet standalone device that has six RJ45
switched ports and two optional Fast Ethernet Interface Module ports
(100BASE-TX, 100BASE-FX, and 100BASE-F3) that provide twisted
pair, multimode, and single mode fiber optic cabling connectivity.

The 2H22-08R
The 2H22-08R supports traditional IEEE 802.1d switching (bridging),
IEEE 802.Q switching, and Cabletron Systems SECUREFAST Switching
Virtual Network technology. The 2H22-08R is used to connect individual
high-bandwidth user devices, such as workstations, and provide a central
switching point for multiple 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet segments.
1.3.1
Auto-Negotiation
Twisted Pair ports on the 2H22-08R can auto-negotiate the type of
connection required to provide a link to another device. During
Auto-Negotiation, two devices automatically exchange information
concerning their operating capabilities. The Auto-Negotiation feature
targets the maximum capabilities between the two devices. For example,
the 2H22-08R adjusts to 100 Mbps when the device on the other end of
the connection can adjust between 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps. If the device on
the other end of the connection can only operate at 10 Mbps, then the
2H22-08R adjusts to 10 Mbps operation.
When Auto-Negotiation is supported at both ends of a link, the two
devices dynamically adjust to full or half duplex operation based on the
maximum capability that can be reached between the two devices. If the
device connected to the 2H22-08R cannot auto-negotiate, the 2H22-08R
interface operates according to the capabilities of the other device.
2H22-08R SmartSwitch 2208 User’s Guide
Page 1-3
Chapter 1: Introduction
1.3.2
Connectivity
The 2H22-08R connects to Ethernet networks or workstations through six
RJ45 ports on the front panel. These ports support Category 5 unshielded
and shielded twisted pair cables of lengths up to 100 meters. These ports
are IEEE 802.3u 100BASE-TX compliant.
The 2H22-08R has two front panel slots (ports 7 and 8) for optional Fast
Ethernet Interface Modules (FE-100TX, FE-100FX, and FE-100F3) to
support an uplink to 100 Mbps Fast Ethernet backbones or a high speed
connection to a local server using twisted pair, multimode or single mode
fiber optic cabling.
1.3.3
Runtime IP Address Discovery
This feature enables the 2H22-08R to automatically accept an IP address
from a Boot Strap Protocol (BootP) server on the network into NVRAM
without requiring a user to enter an IP address through Local
Management.
When the 2H22-08R is connected to the network and powered up,
Runtime IP Address Discovery (RAD) checks the 2H22-08R for an IP
address. If one has not yet been assigned (2H22-08R IP address set to
0.0.0.0), RAD checks to see if any of the 2H22-08R interfaces have a link.
If so, RAD sends out Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) and
BootP requests to obtain an IP address from a BootP server on the
network.
The RAD requests start out at an interval of 1 second. The interval then
doubles after every transmission until an interval of 300 seconds is
reached. At this point, the interval remains at 300 seconds. The RAD
requests continue until an IP address is received from a BootP server, or
an IP address is entered using Local Management.

2H22-08R Overview
1.3.4
Remote Monitoring (RMON)
The 2H22-08R supports all Ethernet RMON groups, which include
Statistics, Alarms, Events and History as the default groups enabled on all
ports, and Capture, Filter, and Host as the groups that are off by default.
Cabletron Systems RMON Actions is a vendor-specific extension of
RMON and provides the ability to set an “Action” on any SNMP MIB
variable. The Action can be triggered by any RMON Event and/or Alarm.
The Action can be, for example, to turn a MIB-2 interface off if a
broadcast threshold is crossed.
1.3.5
Switching Options
The 2H22-08R provides traditional Switching (802.1D), IEEE 802.1Q, or
SECUREFAST Switching Virtual Network Services between all of the front
panel interfaces including Fast Ethernet Interface Modules. SECUREFAST
Switching and IEEE 802.1Q allows for migration to Virtual Network
technologies without requiring the replacement of existing equipment.
1.3.6
Standards Compatibility
The 2H22-08R provides IEEE 802.1, 802.1u, 802.1D and DEC Spanning
Tree Algorithm (STA) support to enhance the overall reliability of the
network and protect against “loop” conditions. The 2H22-08R supports a
wide variety of industry standard MIBs including RFC 1213 (MIB II),
RFC 1757 (RMON), RFC 1493 (Bridge MIB), and RFC 1354 (FIB MIB).
A full suite of Cabletron Systems Enterprise MIBs provides a wide array
of statistical information to enhance troubleshooting.
1.3.7
Year 2000 Compliant
The 2H22-08R has an internal clock that can maintain the current time
and date beyond the year 1999.
1.3.8
LANVIEW Diagnostic LEDs
The various conditions of the LANVIEW diagnostic LEDs serve as
important troubleshooting aids. They provide an easy way to observe the
transmit and receive status of individual ports and overall network
operations such as system status, switching configuration, and Fast
Ethernet channel usage. Chapter 4 provides details about the 2H22-08R
LANVIEW LEDs.

Chapter 1: Introduction
1.4
LOCAL MANAGEMENT
Management of the 2H22-08R is accomplished using Local Management
tools or remote Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
management stations. Out-of-band Local Management is accessible
through the RS232 COM port on the front panel using a VT100 terminal,
or a remote VT100 terminal emulator via a modem connection, and
in-band via a Telnet connection. In-band remote management is possible
through any SNMP compliant Network Management Software.
Local Management provides the tools to manage the 2H22-08R, and its
two Fast Ethernet Interface Modules. It also allows the following tasks to
be performed:
•
Assign an IP address and subnet mask to the 2H22-08R.
•
Select a default gateway and default interface.
•
Control local and remote access.
•
Designate workstations to receive SNMP traps from the 2H22-08R.
Chapter 5 provides detailed information about Local Management of the
2H22-08R, and its two optional Fast Ethernet Interface Modules. Local
Management also provides the features detailed in Section 1.4.1 through
Section 1.4.4.
1.4.1
Broadcast Suppression
Broadcast Suppression allows a user to set a desired limit of receive
broadcast frames per port/per second to be forwarded out of the other
ports on the module up to the set limit. Any broadcast frames above this
specified limit are dropped. In the event that broadcast frames are being
suppressed, multicast and unicast frames continue to be switched without
suppression.

Port Redirect Function
The port redirect function, also referred to as “Port Mirroring,” is a
troubleshooting tool used to map traffic from a single source port or
multiple source ports to Destination ports(s) within the chassis. This
feature functions at the bit level, which allows all packets, including, if
desired, those with errors, to be copied and sent to an analyzer or RMON
probe that appears as if it is directly connected to the LAN segment of the
source port(s).
1.4.3
Full Duplex Switched Ethernet (FDSE)
Each switched Fast Ethernet port on the 2H22-08R supports 10/100 Mbps
operation and can be configured to operate in Full Duplex Switched
Ethernet (FDSE) mode. FDSE allows each Fast Ethernet port to provide
up to 200 Mbps of aggregate throughput bandwidth.
1.4.4
SmartTrunk
SmartTrunk, also referred to as SmartTrunking, is Cabletron Systems’
terminology for load balancing or load sharing. SmartTrunk technology
provides an easy-to-implement mechanism to group, or aggregate,
multiple physical links together to scale the backbone bandwidth beyond
the limitations of a single link. All links are user-configurable so
administrators can scale the backbone bandwidth by adding SmartTrunk
links. The SmartTrunk benefits are as follows:
•
All purchased bandwidth is used.
•
Distributed, resilient links increase reliability and performance.
•
Multiple technologies are supported within a single trunk for
maximum flexibility.
SmartTrunking on the 2H22-08R is available to group the optional Fast
Ethernet Interface Module ports 7 and 8.
For more information about SmartTrunk, refer to the Cabletron Systems
SmartTrunk User’s Guide.

Figure 3-9. Cabletron Systems offers optional fiber optic cables that use
SC style connectors. The ST connectors are keyed to ensure proper
crossover of the transmit and receive fibers.
NOTES
An odd number of crossovers (preferably one) must be
maintained between devices so that the transmit port of one
device is connected to the receive port of the other device and
vice versa.
If the fiber optic cable being used has SC style connectors that
do not resemble MIC style connectors, or has SC connectors
on one end and a different type on the other, such as ST
connectors, ensure that the proper crossing over occurs.

SWITCHING option), or as a Cabletron Systems SecureFast switch
(SECURE FAST VLAN option).
In 802.1d SWITCHING mode, the six ports located on the front panel,
and each Fast Ethernet Interface Module are bridged to each other.
In 802.1Q SWITCHING mode, the 2H22-08R is able to increase
switching functionality by creating and maintaining IEEE port based
VLANs.
When the operational mode is set to SECURE FAST VLAN, the
2H22-08R interfaces act as SecureFast switches. With the Cabletron
Systems VLAN Manager software, the devices are able to increase their
switching functionality by creating and maintaining Virtual LANs
(VLANs).

2H22-08R SmartSwitch 2208 User’s Guide
Ethernet Interface Configuration
Link Status (Read-Only)
Indicates whether or not there is a physical connection from a particular
port to another 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX/FX, or
100BASE-TXFD/FXFD device. One of the following values displays:
•
Link – There is a link signal present and a valid physical connection
to another 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX/FX, or 100BASE-TXFD/FXFD
device.
•
No Link – There is no link signal present and there is no valid physical
connection to another device.
Current Oper. Mode (Read-only)
This field displays the current operating mode of a port. Depending on the
interface installed (100BASE-FX, 100BASE-F3, or 100BASE-TX), this
field displays the following:
•
100Base-TX interface – Auto-Neg, Unknown (if there is no Link),
10Base-T, 10Base-TFD (full duplex), 100Base-TX, or
100Base-TXFD (full duplex).
•
100BASE-FX interface – Unknown (if there is no Link), 100Base-FX
or 100Base-FXFD (full duplex).
Desired Oper. Mode (Selectable)
This field allows you to select the desired operational mode for an
interface.
•
FE-100TX Interface – The field steps to Auto-Neg, 10Base-T,
10Base-TFD (full duplex), 100Base-TX, and 100Base-TXFD (full
duplex). In normal operation, the port with an FE-100TX interface is
capable of auto-negotiating the operational mode and no further user
setup is required. Section 5.11.1 describes how to configure an
FE-100TX.
•
FE-100FX/F3 Interface – The field toggles between 100Base-FX or
100Base-FXFD (full duplex) operation. Section 5.11.4 describes
configuring a port with an FE-100FX or FE-100F3 interface.
NOTE
In normal operation, the installed FE-100TX port automatically
establishes a link with the device at the other end of the
segment without requiring user setup. However, Local
Management allows you to optionally configure that port.
2H22-08R SmartSwitch 2208 User’s Guide
Page 5-43
Chapter 5: Local Management
Advertised Ability (Selectable)
During auto-negotiation, the FE-100TX sends information about its
capability to the device at the other end of the segment. The capabilities of
a port with an FE-100TX installed are 10BASE-T, 10BASE-TFD (full
duplex mode), 100BASE-TX and 100BASE-TXFD (full duplex mode).
In normal operation, with all capabilities enabled, the FE-100TX
“advertises” that it has the ability to operate in any mode. The Network
Manager may choose to set up the port so that only a portion of the
available capabilities are advertised and the others are disabled. For
example, only 100BASE-TX and 100BASE-TXFD might be enabled so
that only devices that operate at 100 Mbps can communicate with that
port. Section 5.11.3 describes how to enable or disable advertised modes.
Flow Control Admin Status (Selectable)
This setting controls whether or not the switch will send a jam out all
ports when there is too much traffic for the switch to process. The jam
will clear the ports and enable the switch to process the current frame
information. It will enable the optional ports, 7 and 8, to continue to pass
traffic, giving those two ports priority. Section 5.11.3 describes the how to
enable or disable advertised modes.
5.11.1 Configuring an FE-100TX Interface
In normal operation, a port with an FE-100TX interface automatically
establishes a link with the device at the other end of the segment and no
user setup is required. Section 5.11.2 and Section 5.11.3 provide
instructions for manually configuring the port with an FE-100TX
installed.

5.11.3 Setting the FE-100TX Advertised Ability
During normal operation, ports 1 through 6 and optionally in port 7 or 8
an FE-100TX auto-negotiates to the highest speed possible. Under some
circumstances, the Network Administrator may want the port to advertise
only some of the available modes and not operate in other modes. This
field steps to 10Base-T, 10Base-TFD (full duplex), 100Base-TX, and
100Base-TXFD (full duplex). To set the advertised ability, proceed as
follows:
1. Use the arrow keys to highlight the Advertised Ability field.

PORT REDIRECT FUNCTION SCREEN
The Port Redirect Function screen is only used if the
operational mode of the device has been set to 802.1d
SWITCHING. Refer to Section 5.7.9, Setting the Operational
Mode for instructions on configuring the device to operate in
this mode.
The Port Redirect Function screen, Figure 5-22, allows you to set each
interface as a source or destination interface on the 2H22-08R. An
interface can be set to have one or more destination interfaces. For
example, interface 1 can be set as a source interface with three
destinations, interfaces 2, 3, and 4. Traffic from interface 1 is then
automatically redirected to interfaces 2, 3, and 4. Interface 1 can also
serve as a destination interface for other ports.
The port redirect function is extremely useful for troubleshooting
purposes, as it enables traffic to be sent to a particular interface(s) where,
with the use of an analyzer or RMON probe, all current traffic from the
source interface(s) can be examined.
NOTE
Although all traffic from the source port (including, if desired,
error frames) is sent to the destination port, normal switching is
still performed for all frames on the source port.

RMON Statistics Screen
The following definitions explain each field of the RMON Statistics
screen:
RMON Index (Read-only)
This field displays the current Ethernet interface for which statistics are
being shown. The 2H22-08R has an embedded RMON agent that gathers
statistics for each of its interfaces.
Data Source (Read-only)
This field displays the source of the statistics data that is currently being
displayed on the screen. Figure 5-27 shows that the data source for this
RMON index is Interface 1 by displaying the name IfIndex.1. If the
screen was displaying RMON statistics for Interface 4, the name
displayed would be IfIndex.4.
Owner (Read-only)
This field displays the name of the entity that last configured the device.
Status (Read-only)
The Status field displays the current operating status of the displayed
interface. This field displays “valid” or “invalid”.
Drop Events (Read-only)
This field displays the total number of times that the RMON agent was
forced to discard packets due to the lack of available switch resources.
NOTE
The Drop Events field does not display the number of packets
dropped, it only displays the number of times that the RMON
agent was forced to discard packets.
Collisions (Read-only)
This field displays the total number of collisions that have occurred on
this interface.
Broadcast Pkts (Read-only)
The Broadcast Pkts field displays the total number of good packets that
were directed to the broadcast address. The value of this field does not
include multicast packets.
2H22-08R SmartSwitch 2208 User’s Guide
Page 5-75
Chapter 5: Local Management
Multicast Pkts (Read-only)
The Multicasts field displays the total number of good packets received
that were directed to a multicast address. The value of this field does not
include packets directed to the broadcast address.
CRC Align Errors (Read-only)
This field displays the number of packets with bad Cyclic Redundancy
Checks (CRC) received from the network. The CRC is a 4-byte field in
the data packet that ensures that the data received is the same as the data
that was originally sent. Alignment errors are due to packets not sent to
higher level protocols in the correct order.
Undersized Pkts (Read-only)
The Undersized Pkts field displays the number of packets received with a
valid CRC and whose size was less than the minimum Ethernet frame size
of 64 bytes (not including preamble).
Oversized Pkts (Read-only)
The Oversized Pkts field displays the number of packets received with a
valid CRC and whose size exceeded 1518 data bytes (not including
preamble).
Fragments (Read-only)
This field displays the number of received packets with less than the
minimum number of bytes, or received packets, were less than 64 bytes
(excluding framing bits), but including Frame Check Sequence (FCS)
bytes) that had a bad FCS, and an invalid CRC.
NOTE
It is normal for the Fragments field to increment. This is
because the RMON agent increments the field when runts are
detected (which are normal occurrences due to collisions) and
when noise hits occur.
Jabbers (Read-only)
This field displays the total number of packets that were greater than 1518
bytes and had either a bad FCS or a bad CRC.
Total Packets (Read-only)
This field displays the total number of packets (including bad packets,
broadcast packets, and multicast packets) received on this interface.

Switch definitions and positions are as follows:
•
Switches 1 through 4 – For Cabletron Systems use only.
•
Switch 5 – COM Port Autobaud. The default (OFF) position enables
Autobaud sensing on the COM port for Local Management sessions.
Changing the switch to the ON position disables Autobaud sensing and
sets the COM port to 9600 baud for Local Management sessions.
2H22-08R SmartSwitch 2208 User’s Guide
Page C-5
Appendix C: Optional Installations and Mode Switch Bank Settings
•
Switch 6 – Forced BootP. The BootP server references the location of
a station acting as a Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) server
containing the 2H22-08R image file.
NOTE
Do NOT attempt a Forced BootP unless a BootP server has
been configured for the 2H22-08R.
When the position of Switch 6 is changed and the power is cycled to
the 2H22-08R, the device requests the image file location from the
BootP server and uses TFTP to download the image from the TFTP
server. If one of these requirements is not met, the 2H22-08R will
continue to request either the BootP server or the TFTP server until the
RESET button on the 2H22-08R is pressed. Once the RESET button
is pressed, the 2H22-08R resets after one minute and loads the image
stored in FLASH memory.
•
Switch 7 – Clear NVRAM. Changing the position of this switch resets
NVRAM on either the next power-up or the next operation of the front
panel RESET button. All user-entered parameters, such as the IP
address, device names, etc., are reset to the factory default settings.
Once the 2H22-08R resets, you can either use the factory default
settings or reenter your own parameters.
•
Switch 8 – Reset Password/Community Strings. Changing the
position of this switch clears user-entered passwords stored in
NVRAM, and restores the factory default passwords on either the next
power-up or the next operation of the front panel RESET button. Once
the 2H22-08R resets, you can either use the factory default settings or
reenter your own passwords.
NOTE
Page C-6
Do not change the position of switch 8 unless it is necessary to
reset the 2H22-08R super-user configured passwords to their
factory default settings.
