Introduction
IntraSpection Personality Modules
A Personality Module is a “plug-in” to the IntraSpection system that
allows for expanded management of an SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) device by specifically addressing the device’s proprietary information (the “Private MIB”).
Management capabilities are accessed via the Personality Module’s
Device Page. See Figure 1-1.

Front Panel Image
The front panel image contains the following components (as illustrated
in Figure 3-3):
❏ Status LEDs — real-time LEDs that represent the LEDs
on the SuperStack II Switch 1000’s front panel. These
LEDs indicate power, management, and port activity.
❏ Device — the SuperStack II Switch 1000.
❏ Port — each port on the SuperStack II Switch 1000.
❏ VLAN groups — groups of configured VLANs on the
SuperStack II Switch 1000. These are identified by a
number (displayed in the VLAN identification window)
and a group marker (a green “v” displayed in each port
that belongs to the VLAN group).

Setting Community Strings
Setting Community Strings
Community strings define access rights for reading and writing SNMP
data objects for a device.
The community strings (read community and write community) for the
SuperStack II Switch 1000 are manually set in the device via its console
port. In order to access the device with IntraSpection, the community
strings must be set in IntraSpection to match those set in the device.
▲ Important: It is recommended that you set the community strings for the device in IntraSpection before you
attempt to perform any network management functions.
This section describes how to set the community strings in IntraSpection to match those set in the SuperStack II Switch 1000.
▲
Important: You must know the community strings of
the SuperStack II Switch 1000 in order to correctly set
them in IntraSpection. Refer to the SuperStack II
Switch 1000’s User’s Guide for instructions on viewing
the device’s community strings.
To set the community strings for a SuperStack II Switch 1000 in
IntraSpection:

Managing the Port Address Table
The Port Address Table is a table of node addresses that the device
receives on its ports. It uses the information in the table to decide
whether a frame should be forwarded or filtered.
By modifying entries in the Port Address Table, you can restrict access to
certain ports by specifying the physical addresses that are allowed to
connect to the ports.
The table holds a maximum of 500 entries. Initially, all entries are ageing entries (that is, they are removed from the table if, after a period of
time, the device has not transmitted or if the device is reset or powered
off). Entries can be set as “permanent” to remain in the table regardless
of the aging time or if the switch is powered off or reset.

VLAN
This chapter provides an overview of VLAN and explains how to use it
with the SuperStack II Switch 1000.
VLAN Overview
VLAN stands for virtual local area network. VLAN is a network configuration tool that allows you to “group” together specific ports on the same
switch, designating them as their own virtual network segments.
With the SuperStack II Switch 1000 Personality Module, the use of
VLAN lets you:
❏ Create up to 16 separate user groups
❏ Limit broadcast and multicast traffic
❏ Increase security (by specifying which segments
can communicate with each other)
❏ Allocate network resources (such as servers)
❏ Designate specific application groups
You can create up to 16 separate VLANs on the SuperStack II Switch
1000 by assigning each port on the switch to a VLAN number. By grouping certain ports together, you effectively “cut” the switch into completely independent segments.
For example, you can designate ports 2, 6, and 8 to be on VLAN1 and
ports 1, 10, and 12 to be on VLAN2. As a result, each group of ports will
have its own workgroup and resources within its domain. You can create and reconfigure these workgroups, reallocate resources as required,
and gather statistics at the VLAN group and port levels.

Address List
This menu displays the SuperStack II Switch 1000’s MAC address table.
The MAC address table is a table of node addresses that the device
receives on its ports. It uses the information in this table to decide
whether a frame should be forwarded or filtered. Each entry consists of
the MAC address of the device and an identifier for the port on which it
was received.
▲ Important: The MAC address table holds a maximum of 500 entries.
The SuperStack II Switch 1000 learns entries automatically by listening
to and learning the information that is broadcast when a new node logs
onto the network. The SuperStack II Switch 1000 checks the source and
destination address as packets pass through it and records the information in the table.
▲ Important:
You cannot manually add an entry into
the Port Address Table.
Table 6-3 describes each field in the Address List menu.

Note: For instructions on using this menu, see “Managing
the Port Address Table” on page 4-15.
