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.

2E4X-27 OVERVIEW
The 2E4X-27 is a 27-port high-speed network switching device that
supports traditional switching (bridging) and Cabletron Systems
SecureFast Switching Virtual Network technology. Ports 25 and 26
support optional Fast Ethernet Interface Modules and can provide uplinks
to 100BASE-TX or 100BASE-FX Fast Ethernet networks. Port 27
supports an optional High Speed Interface Module (HSIM) that provides
additional connectivity to various networking technologies such as
Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) and Fiber Distribution Data
Interface (FDDI).
The 2E4X-27 is used to connect individual high-bandwidth user devices,
such as workstations, and provides a central switching point for multiple
Ethernet segments built using devices such as Cabletron Systems
HubSTACK or other third party stackable devices.
The 2E4X-27 is a tabletop unit that can be installed in a standard 19-inch
rack using the supplied rack mounting hardware.
The 2E42-27 and 2E43-27 have one universal ac power supply with
automatic voltage sensing that allows operation using 100–125 or
200–240 Vac, 50/60 Hz.
The 2E42-27R and 2E43-27R have two power supplies. The power
supplies load share 50% (+/-5%) of the power required by the device. If
one power supply fails, the remaining power supply assumes the entire
load of the device without interruption to network traffic. Each power
supply module supports its own ac input connection, which allows the

2E4X-27 Overview
All of the devices have two front panel slots (ports 25 and 26) for optional
Fast Ethernet Interface Modules to support an uplink to 100 Mbps Fast
Ethernet backbones or a high speed connection to a local server. There is
also space for an optional HSIM to provide additional connectivity to
various networking technologies.
1.4.2
Full Duplex Switched Ethernet
Each switched Ethernet port supports full wire-speed Ethernet
communications and can be configured to operate in Full Duplex
Switched Ethernet (FDSE) mode. FDSE allows each port to provide a
dedicated 20 Mbps bandwidth for file server or high-end workstation
connections. The Fast Ethernet ports provide up to 200 Mbps of
bandwidth.
1.4.3
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.
For more information about SmartTrunk, refer to the Cabletron Systems
SmartTrunk User’s Guide.

1.4.4
Runtime IP Address Discovery
This feature enables the 2E42-27 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 2E42-27 is connected to the network and powered up, Runtime
IP Address Discovery (RAD) checks the 2E42-27 for an IP address. If one
has not yet been assigned (2E42-27 IP address set to 0.0.0.0), RAD
checks to see if any of the 2E42-27 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.
1.4.5
Management
Management of the 2E4X-27 is accomplished using SNMP compliant
management tools for in-band management. Out-of-band Local
Management is provided through the RJ45 COM port on the front panel
using a VT100 terminal or a VT100 terminal emulator. In-band remote
management is possible through any SNMP compliant Network
Management Software.
Local Management provides the ability to manage the 2E4X-27 and any
of the optional Fast Ethernet Interface Modules installed in ports 15 and
16 and the optional High Speed Interface Module (HSIM).
The associated High Speed Interface Module user’s guide provides
detailed information about Local Management of the HSIM.
Information about how to access and use Local Management is contained
in Chapter 5.

Connecting a Fiber Optic Segment to the
FE-100FX and FE-100F3
The FE-100FX and FE-100F3 have SC style network ports (see
Figure 3-11). Cabletron Systems supplies fiber optic cable that uses SC
style connectors, which 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.
Fiber Optic Network Connection
1. Remove the protective plastic covers from the fiber optic ports on the
applicable port on the module and from the ends of the connectors.
!
CAUTION
!
CAUTION
The FE-100F3 uses Class 1 lasers. 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.
Do not touch the ends of the fiber optic strands, and do not let
the ends come in contact with dust, dirt, or other contaminants.
Contamination of the ends causes problems in data
transmissions. If the ends become contaminated, blow the
surfaces clean with a canned duster. A fiber port cleaning swab
saturated with optical-grade isopropyl alcohol may also be used
to clean the fiber optic ends.

Monitoring an Uninterruptible Power Supply
If the 2E4X-27 is connected to an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)
device for protection against the loss of power, a connection from the
2E4X-27 COM port to the UPS can be made to monitor the power status
of the UPS. To use the COM port for this purpose, it must be configured
to support the UPS connection using the procedure described in
Section 5.7.10. Refer to the UPS documentation for details on how to
access the status information.
The Console Cable Kit provided with the 2E4X-27 is used to attach the
UPS to the 2E4X-27 COM port as shown in Figure 5-2.
To connect the UPS device to the COM port of the 2E4X-27, proceed as
follows:
1. Connect the RJ45 connector at one end of the cable to the COM port
on the 2E4X-27.
2. Plug the RJ45 connector at the other end of the cable into the
RJ45-to-DB9 male (UPS) adapter.
3. Connect the RJ45-to-DB9 male (UPS) adapter to the female DB9 port
on the rear of the UPS device (see the particular UPS device’s user
instructions for more specific information about the monitoring
connection).

ACCESSING LOCAL MANAGEMENT
Access to Local Management is controlled through the Password screen
Figure 5-3. Whenever a connection is made to the 2E4X-27 the Password
screen displays. Before continuing, the user must enter a password
(community name) which is compared to the previously stored
passwords. The level of access allowed the user depends on the password.
To set or change passwords, refer to Section 5.8. The following steps
describe the procedure to access Local Management.
1. Turn on the terminal. Press ENTER (this may take up to four times,
because the COM port auto-senses the baud rate of the terminal) until
the 2E4X-27 Local Management Password screen displays. It is the
automatic line speed seeking feature of the port that makes it necessary
at times to press ENTER several times.

Chapter 5: Local Management
Desired Oper. Mode (Selectable)
This field allows the user to select the desired operational mode for an
interface in port 25 or 26. The field toggles between 100BASE-FX and
100BASE-FXFD (full duplex) when an FE-100FX or FE-100F3 is
installed. Section 5.15.1 describes how to configure a port with an
FE-100FX or FE-100F3.
NOTE
In normal operation, the port with an FE-100TX installed
automatically establishes a link with the device at the other end
of the segment without requiring user setup. However, Local
Management provides the user with the option of manually
configuring that port.
If an FE-100TX is installed, the field steps to Auto-Negotiation,
10Base-T, 10Base-TFD (full duplex), 100Base-TX, and 100Base-TXFD
(full duplex). In normal operation, the port with an FE-100TX installed is
capable of auto-negotiating the operational mode and no further user
setup is required. Section 5.15.3 describes how to manually configure an
FE-100TX.
In Auto-Negotiation, the FE-100TX negotiates to the highest common
denominator of the two interfaces. The order of priority of negotiation is
100BASE-TXFD, 100BASE-TX, 10BASE-TFD, and 10BASE-T.
Advertised Ability (Selectable)
During auto-negotiation, the FE-100TX “tells” the device at the other end
of the segment about its capabilities. The capabilities of a port (25 or 26)
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 5.15.5 describes how
to enable or disable advertised modes.

PORT REDIRECT FUNCTION SCREEN
The Port Redirect Function screen may not be available
depending on the operational mode setting of the device. Refer
to the Release Notes to see which operational modes support
the Port Redirect Function screen. Section C.2.1, Setting the
Mode Switch, describes how to configure the device to
operate in this mode.
The Port Redirect Function screen, Figure 5-24, allows the user to set
each one of the ports 1 through 26 as a source or destination port. A port
can be set to have one or more destination ports. For example, port 1 can
be set as a source port with three destinations, ports 2, 3, and 4. Traffic
from port 1 is then automatically redirected to ports 2, 3, and 4. Port 1 can
also serve as a destination port for other ports.
The port redirect function is extremely useful for troubleshooting
purposes, as it allows traffic to be sent to a particular port(s) where, with
the use of an analyzer or RMON probe, all current traffic from the source
port(s) can be examined.
NOTE
Although all traffic from the source port (including errored
frames) is sent to the destination port, normal switching is still
performed for all frames on the source port.
To access the Port Redirect Function screen from the Device Specific
Configuration Menu screen, use the arrow keys to highlight the PORT
REDIRECT FUNCTION menu item and press ENTER. The Port

Drop Events (Read-only)
This field displays the total number of times that the RMON agent was
forced to discard frames due to the lack of available switch resources.
NOTE
The Drop Events field does not display the number of frames
dropped, it only displays the number of times that the RMON
agent was forced to discard frames.
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 frames that
were directed to the broadcast address. The value of this field does not
include multicast frames.
Multicasts (Read-only)
The Multicast field displays the total number of good frames received that
were directed to a multicast address. The value of this field does not
include frames directed to the broadcast address.
CRC Align Errors (Read-only)
This field displays the number of frames with bad Cyclic Redundancy
Checks (CRC) received from the network. The CRC is a 4-byte field in
the data frame that ensures that the data received is the same as the data
that was originally sent.
Undersized Pkts (Read-only)
The Undersized Pkts field displays the number of frames received whose
size was less than the minimum Ethernet frame size of 64 bytes, not
including preamble, but have a valid CRC.

5.23.1 Built-in Commands
The built-in commands listed in this section activate functions on the LM
managed device or devices being accessed through Network Tools.
arp:
Syntax:
arp <options>
Description:
The arp command provides access to the ARP
(Address Resolution Protocol) cache, enabling
you to view cache data, delete entries, or add a
static route. Super-user access is required to
delete an entry or add a static route.
Each ARP cache entry lists the network
interface that the device is connected to, the
device’s network address or IP address, the
device’s physical address or MAC address, and
the media type of connection to the device.
Media types display as numbers, which stand
for the following states:
1 - Other
2 - Invalid entry (cannot ping device, timed out,
etc.)
3 - Dynamic route entry
4 - Static route entry (not subject to change)
You can specify the arp command without options, or with one of the
following options:
Options:
-a Views cache data
-d Deletes an IP address entry. Requires
additional arguments: <Interface Number>
<IP address>
-s Adds a static entry. Requires additional
arguments: <Interface Number> <IP address>
<MAC address>
-f Flushes the ARP cache

2E4X-27 Mode Switch Location/Component Layout
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.
•
Switch 6 – Forced BootP. Do NOT attempt a Forced BootP unless a
BootP server has been configured for the 2E4X-27. The BootP server
references the location of a station acting as a Trivial File Transfer
Protocol (TFTP) server containing the 2E4X-27 image file. When the
position of Switch 6 is changed and the power is cycled to the
2E4X-27, 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 2E4X-27 will continue to
request either the BootP server or the TFTP server until the RESET
button on the 2E4X-27 is pressed. Once the RESET button is pressed,
the 2E4X-27 will reset after one minute and load 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 2E4X-27 resets, you can either use the factory default
settings or re-enter 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 2E4X-27
resets, you can either use the factory default settings or re-enter your
own passwords.

NOTE
The installation instructions for the High Speed Interface
Modules are in the associated user’s guide.
To install a Fast Ethernet Interface Module in port slot 25 or 26, proceed
as follows:
!
CAUTION
!
CAUTION
TIP
The FE-100F3 uses Class 1 lasers. 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.
The Fast Ethernet Interface Module and the 2E4X-27 are
sensitive to static discharges. Use an antistatic wrist strap and
observe all static precautions during this procedure. Failure to
do so could damage the module or the 2E4X-27.
When installing Fast Ethernet Interface Modules in both port
slots 25 and 26, remove the coverplates from both slot
openings. In the following instructions, the optional module is
shown being installed in port slot 26.
1. Remove the coverplate from the port slot where the Fast Ethernet
Interface Module will be installed. Refer to Figure C-4 and proceed as
follows:
a. Remove the two screws fastening the coverplate to the standoffs.
Save the screws.
b. Lift and remove the coverplate from the top of the front standoffs.

CAUTION
When installing an FE-100FX or FE-100F3 module into the
2E4X-27, remove the rubber plug on the module before
proceeding.
3. See Figure C-5. Gently pull the faceplate of the 2E4X-27 forward to
allow room for the Fast Ethernet Interface Modules to be aligned over
the connector.
!
CAUTION
In the following step, take care when inserting the Fast Ethernet
Interface Module into the Motherboard connector, so that the
pins do not bend. Otherwise, the Fast Ethernet Interface Board
and the Motherboard could be damaged.
