2.4.5 Firmware update
Before updating the firmware, you should check whether your management
station provides TFTP server and DHCP server. If these 2 services exit on your
management station, you should disable both services by executing the following
procedures:
(1) Click “Control Panel” Æ “System Management Tool” Æ “Service”.
(2) Disable both TFTP server and DHCP server.
(3) Make Sure the Firewall Setting.
-- Since Jounin DHCP/TFTP program utilizes UDP port 67~ port 69 to transfer
data, you should always keep these UDP ports enabled. Make sure both
Windows firewall & Anti-Virus firewall do NOT block the data transfer.
-- To disable the firewall of Windows, please follow the following procedures:
(My Computer) Æ (Control Panel) Æ (Network and Dial-up
connection) Æ select the network connection and click right button Æ (Property) Æ (Advanced).
Do NOT enable the firewall, since the firewall will probably block the UDP port 67 ~ port 69.
-- Take PC-cillin Anti-Virus program for example, you can follow the
procedures listed below to add the exception list to the firewall set up.
Click (Network Security) Æ (Set up) Æ (Exception List) Æ (Add) Æ Enter
the description the IP address range 67-69 Æ select “UDP”.
(4) Download TFTP+DHCP Program from the Web Site.
14
This program can be downloaded from the web site. http://tftpd32.jounin.net/.You don’t need
to install this program. To run TFTPD32 just launch the executable file tftpd32.exe. The
configuration procedure for DHCP/BootP server is illustrated as the following figures.
Step1: Click the “Settings” item and set base Directory.
Step2: To update the firmware through this program, you should select TFTP
server, DHCP server and Syslog server.
Step3: Click the “DHCP Server” item and setup items shown below. After
finishing the settings, click “SAVE” item to save the configuration.
15
(5) Press the “Update” button which is shown on the Web page.
After you press the “update” button, the TFTP procedure starts and the program shows
the throughput of the data transfer as shown below. If no throughput can be seen on this
program, there may be something wrong with your settings. Please go back to check your
setting step by step.
2.5 Port Management
2.5.1 Port Configuration
In Port Configuration, this page will show each port’s status and setting status. You can
set each port’s configuration on the top of page and click “Update” to save the change.
16
2.5.2 Port Mirroring
Port Mirroring is a method of monitoring network traffic that forwards a copy
of
each incoming and/or outgoing packet from one port of a network switch to another port where
the packet can be studied. It enables the manager to keep
Close track of switch performance and alter it if necessary.
2.5.3 Bandwidth Control
Limit speed of any ports. In this page, you can set each port’s TX (transmit) rate and RX
(receive) rate.
17
TX (Transmit) Rate: to duplicate the rate of data transmit from the source port and
forward to the sniffer port.
RX (Receive) Rate: to duplicate the rate of data that send to the source and forward to the
sniffer port
2.5.4 Broadcast Storm Control
You can enable Broadcast Storm Control to configure the advanced switch function.
The value indicates the number of broadcast packet which is allowed to enter each port in one
time unit. One time unit is 10 ms for 100Mbps speed and 100ms for 10Mbps speed.
18
2.6 VLAN Setting
2.6.1 Group VLAN Setting
This page allows user to define Virtual LAN (VLAN) membership by group of
device’s ports. Any individual port can be a member of a VLAN group. A VLAN
group
is
basically a broadcast domain, but any port is not limited to belong to only one VLAN group. The
forwarding rule is that packets from the source port will be only forwarded to destination port within
the same VLAN group. That is, a broadcast/multicast packet will be forwarded to all ports within
the same VLAB group(s) of the source port except the source port itself. A unicast packet will be
forwarded to the destination port only if the destination port is in the same VLAN group
as
the source port. Organize your VLAN groups in this page.
Each row is a group, any individual port can be a member of a VLAN group, and each
group comprises at least two members. Source port is mark “\” and destination is “V”.
2.6.2 Multi to 1 Setting
The original setting of the VLAN Group will be cleared and replaced by this special
structure if you enable this function. On the other hand, if you set the VLAN Group again, this
special structure will be cleared and replaced by your latest setting.

2-level priority (High and
the Port-Based, IP/DS based, or VLAN
standard IEEE 802.1Q defines. In this way, the switch
controller guarantees the service for high priority frames to some extent, depending on the load
condition of incoming traffic. (At
least, the high priority service offers better than that
of best effort service). It also provides different service ratio settings for
users to shape
the prioritized frames on the streams in the incoming traffic.
2.8.2 Class of Service Configuration
High/Low Priority setting: Specify high or low priority for each port. The port is in High
priority if the port has a check mark; otherwise, the port is in Low priority.
Default: All ports in LOW priority.
IP/DS base (TOS) priority recognition: Ports with TOS enabled will induce

21
Default: All ports in TOS priority recognition disabled.
VLAN tagging base (TCI) priority recognition: Making a check mark in front of port ID
indicates this port is TCI priority enabled.
Default: All ports in TCI priority recognition disabled.
2.9 MAC Address
2.9.1 MAC Address Configuration
This page allows user define which MAC address can be entry to the port. You can
assign three MAC address for every port. Then only the three users can pas this port. It will lock
them and avoid to hacker.
