Full Duplex Configuration Screen Fields
The following information briefly explains each Full Duplex Configuration Screen
field.
OPERATION MODE (Modifiable)
Indicates whether the specified port will transmit and receive data separately or
simultaneously. You can set this field to one of the following values:
•
STANDARD ENET - The port can either transmit data or receive data, but not
both at the same time. Therefore, the port is running at 10 Mbps (this is the
default).
•
FULL DUPLEX - The port can transmit and receive data at the same time.
Therefore, the port is running at 20 Mbps.
LINK STATUS
Indicates whether there is a physical connection from this port to another 10BaseFL device. One of the following values appears:
•
Link - There is a 10Base-FL link signal present; there is a valid physical
connection from this port to another 10Base-FL device.
•
No Link - There is no 10Base-FL link signal present; there is no valid physical
connection from this port to another 10Base-FL device.
PORT STATUS
Indicates whether the port has been turned on or off administratively. You will see
one of the following values:
•
•
ENABLED - The port is turned on administratively.
DISABLED - The port is turned off administratively.
Enable or disable ports from the Bridge Configuration screen.

Switch Configuration Screen Fields
The following information briefly explains each Switch Configuration Screen
field.
Type of STA (Toggle)
Allows you to set the method that switches use to decide which switch is the
controlling (Root) switch when two or more switches exist in parallel (Spanning
Tree Algorithm). Press the Space Bar to toggle to the desired value. Valid types
are:
•
•
•
NOTE
DEC
IEEE
NONE
All switches in a network must use the same Spanning Tree protocol. The IEEE
protocol has a unique format for its Bridge Protocol Data Units (BPDU). Trying
to mix STA protocols results in an unstable network.
Port #
Displays the number of the port for which configuration information is displayed.
MAC Address
Lists the hardware address of each listed switch interface.
State
Displays the current state of each listed interface. The possible interface states
include:
Disabling:
Management has disabled this interface. No traffic can be received or
forwarded while the interface is disabled.
Learning:
The switch is learning this interface’s network addresses. The switch
enters the learning state when the Transparent Database is created
(during start-up or after being deleted), or when the Spanning Tree
Algorithm detects a network topology change.
Listening:
The switch is not adding information to the Transparent Database.
The switch is monitoring BPDU traffic while preparing to move from
the learning to the forwarding state.
Forwarding: The switch is on-line and this interface is forwarding traffic.
Blocking:
8
This interface will not forward any traffic through the switch.
9E428-12/36 and 9E429-12/36 Module Specific Information
Status (Toggle)
Allows you to set the forwarding status of the listed interface (either ENABLED
or DISABLED). Press the Space Bar to toggle to the desired value. Valid entries
are:
•
•
ENABLED

Indicates the current port for which statistics are displayed.
OCTETS
Displays the number of octets transmitted and received.
PACKETS
Displays the number of packets transmitted and received.
TOTAL ERRORS
Displays the total number of errors on this port.
COLLISIONS
Displays the total number of collisions detected on this port.
CRC/ALIGNMENT ERRORS
Displays the number of packets with bad Cyclic Redundancy Checks (CRC) that
have been received from the network. The CRC is a 4-byte field in the data packet
that ensures that the transmitted data that is received is the same as the data that
was originally sent. Alignment errors are due to misaligned packets.
UNDERSIZE PACKETS
Displays the number of packets received whose size was less than the minimum
Ethernet frame size of 64 bytes, not including preamble.
OVERSIZE PACKETS
Displays the number of packets received whose size exceeded 1518 data bytes,
not including preamble.
FRAGMENTS
Displays the total number of packets received that were not an integral number of
octets in length or that had a bad Frame Check Sequence (FCS), and were less
than 64 octets in length (excluding framing bits but including FCS octets).
JABBERS
Displays the total number of packets received that were longer than 1518 octets
(excluding framing bits, but including Frame Check Sequence (FCS) octets), and
were not an integral number of octets in length or had a bad Frame Check
Sequence.
BROADCASTS
Displays the number of broadcasts received.
