Getting to Know Your Switch
1.1 Introduction
This chapter introduces the main features and applications of the Switch. The XGS2210 Series
consists of the following models:
• XGS2210-28
• XGS2210-28HP
• XGS2210-52
• XGS2210-52HP
Referring to PoE model(s) in this User's Guide only applies to XGS2210-28HP and XGS2210-52HP.
The Switch is a stackable, layer-2, Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch with one power slot for single
power supply. The Switch provides four SFP+ slots for uplink. By integrating router functions, the
Switch performs wire-speed layer-3 routing in addition to layer-2 switching.
With its built-in web configurator, including the ZyXEL One Network (ZON) Neighbor Management
feature (Section 7.4 on page 59), viewing, managing and configuring the Switch and its
neighboring devices is easy. The Switch can also be managed via Telnet, any terminal emulator
program on the console port, or third-party SNMP management.
In addition, ZyXEL offers a proprietary software program called ZyXEL One Network (ZON) Utility, it
is a utility tool that assists you to set up and maintain network devices in a more simple and
efficient way. You can download the ZON Utility at www.zyxel.com and install it on a PC. For more
information on ZON Utility see Section 7.3 on page 58.
The following table describes the port features of the Switch by model.

This section shows a few examples of using the Switch in various network environments.
1.1.1 Backbone Application
The Switch is an ideal solution for small networks where rapid growth can be expected in the near
future. The Switch can be used standalone for a group of heavy traffic users. You can connect
computers and servers directly to the Switch’s port or connect other switches to the Switch.
In this example, all computers can share high-speed applications on the server. To expand the
network, simply add more networking devices such as switches, routers, computers, print servers
etc.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
21
Chapter 1 Getting to Know Your Switch
Figure 1 Backbone Application
1.1.2 Bridging Example
In this example, the Switch connects different company departments (RD and Sales) to the
corporate backbone. It can alleviate bandwidth contention and eliminate server and network
bottlenecks. All users that need high bandwidth can connect to high-speed department servers via
the Switch. You can provide a super-fast uplink connection by using a Gigabit Ethernet/mini-GBIC
port on the Switch.
Moreover, the Switch eases supervision and maintenance by allowing network managers to
centralize multiple servers at a single location.
Figure 2 Bridging Application
1.1.3 High Performance Switching Example
The Switch is ideal for connecting two networks that need high bandwidth. In the following
example, use trunking to connect these two networks.
Switching to higher-speed LANs such as ATM (Asynchronous Transmission Mode) is not feasible for
most people due to the expense of replacing all existing Ethernet cables and adapter cards,
restructuring your network and complex maintenance. The Switch can provide the same bandwidth
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
22
Chapter 1 Getting to Know Your Switch
as ATM at much lower cost while still being able to use existing adapters and switches. Moreover,
the current LAN structure can be retained as all ports can freely communicate with each other.
Figure 3 High Performance Switched Workgroup Application
1.1.4 IEEE 802.1Q VLAN Application Examples
A VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) allows a physical network to be partitioned into multiple logical
networks. Stations on a logical network belong to one group. A station can belong to more than one
group. With VLAN, a station cannot directly talk to or hear from stations that are not in the same
group(s) unless such traffic first goes through a router.
For more information on VLANs, refer to Chapter 9 on page 111.
1.1.4.1 Tag-based VLAN Example
Ports in the same VLAN group share the same frame broadcast domain thus increase network
performance through reduced broadcast traffic. VLAN groups can be modified at any time by
adding, moving or changing ports without any re-cabling.
Shared resources such as a server can be used by all ports in the same VLAN as the server. In the
following figure only ports that need access to the server need to be part of VLAN 1. Ports can
belong to other VLAN groups too.
Figure 4 Shared Server Using VLAN Example

Chapter 1 Getting to Know Your Switch
1.2 Ways to Manage the Switch
Use any of the following methods to manage the Switch.
• Web Configurator. This is recommended for everyday management of the Switch using a
(supported) web browser. See Chapter 4 on page 35.
• Command Line Interface. Line commands offer an alternative to the web configurator and in
some cases are necessary to configure advanced features. See the CLI Reference Guide.
• FTP. Use FTP for firmware upgrades and configuration backup/restore. See Section 44.7.1 on
page 441.
• SNMP. The Switch can be monitored by an SNMP manager. See Section 44.5 on page 439.
• Cluster Management. Cluster Management allows you to manage multiple switches through one
switch, called the cluster manager. See Chapter 48 on page 471.
1.3 Good Habits for Managing the Switch
Do the following things regularly to make the Switch more secure and to manage the Switch more
effectively.
• Change the password. Use a password that’s not easy to guess and that consists of different
types of characters, such as numbers and letters.
• Write down the password and put it in a safe place.
• Back up the configuration (and make sure you know how to restore it). Restoring an earlier
working configuration may be useful if the device becomes unstable or even crashes. If you
forget your password, you will have to reset the Switch to its factory default settings. If you
backed up an earlier configuration file, you would not have to totally re-configure the Switch. You
could simply restore your last configuration.

Hardware Installation and Connection
2.1 Installation Scenarios
This chapter shows you how to install and connect the Switch.
The Switch can be placed on a desktop or rack-mounted on a standard EIA rack. Use the rubber
feet in a desktop installation and the brackets in a rack-mounted installation.
Note: For proper ventilation, allow at least 4 inches (10 cm) of clearance at the front and
3.4 inches (8 cm) at the back of the Switch. This is especially important for
enclosed rack installations.
2.2 Desktop Installation Procedure
1
Make sure the Switch is clean and dry.
2
Set the Switch on a smooth, level surface strong enough to support the weight of the Switch and
the connected cables. Make sure there is a power outlet nearby.
3
Make sure there is enough clearance around the Switch to allow air circulation and the attachment
of cables and the power cord.
2.3 Mounting the Switch on a Rack
The Switch can be mounted on an EIA standard size, 19-inch rack or in a wiring closet with other
equipment. Follow the steps below to mount your Switch on a standard EIA rack using a rackmounting kit.
2.3.1 Rack-mounted Installation Requirements
• Two mounting brackets.
• Eight M3 flat head screws and a #2 Philips screwdriver.
• Four M5 flat head screws and a #2 Philips screwdriver.
Failure to use the proper screws may damage the unit.
2.3.1.1 Precautions
• Make sure the rack will safely support the combined weight of all the equipment it contains.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
25
Chapter 2 Hardware Installation and Connection
• Make sure the position of the Switch does not make the rack unstable or top-heavy. Take all
necessary precautions to anchor the rack securely before installing the unit.
2.3.2 Attaching the Mounting Brackets to the Switch
1
Position a mounting bracket on one side of the Switch, lining up the four screw holes on the bracket
with the screw holes on the side of the Switch.
Figure 5 Attaching the Mounting Brackets
2
Using a #2 Philips screwdriver, install the M3 flat head screws through the mounting bracket holes
into the Switch.
3
Repeat steps 1 and 2 to install the second mounting bracket on the other side of the Switch.
4
You may now mount the Switch on a rack. Proceed to the next section.
2.3.3 Mounting the Switch on a Rack
1
Position a mounting bracket (that is already attached to the Switch) on one side of the rack, lining
up the two screw holes on the bracket with the screw holes on the side of the rack.

Hardware Panels
This chapter describes the front panel and rear panel of the Switch and shows you how to make the
hardware connections.
3.1 Front Panel
The following figures show the front panels of the Switch.
Figure 7 Front Panel: XGS2210-28
Figure 8 Front Panel: XGS2210-28HP
Figure 9 Front Panel: XGS2210-52
Figure 10 Front Panel: XGS2210-52HP
3.1.1 Gigabit Ethernet Ports
The Switch has 1000Base-T auto-negotiating, auto-crossover Ethernet ports. In 10/100/1000 Mbps
Gigabit Ethernet, the speed can be 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps or 1000 Mbps. The duplex mode can be half
duplex or full duplex.
An auto-negotiating port can detect and adjust to the optimum Ethernet speed (10/100/1000
Mbps) and duplex mode (full duplex or half duplex) of the connected device.
An auto-crossover (auto-MDI/MDI-X) port automatically works with a straight-through or crossover
Ethernet cable.
When auto-negotiation is turned on, an Ethernet port negotiates with the peer automatically to
determine the connection speed and duplex mode. If the peer Ethernet port does not support autonegotiation or turns off this feature, the Switch determines the connection speed by detecting the
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
28
Chapter 3 Hardware Panels
signal on the cable and using half duplex mode. When the Switch’s auto-negotiation is turned off,
an Ethernet port uses the pre-configured speed and duplex mode when making a connection, thus
requiring you to make sure that the settings of the peer Ethernet port are the same in order to
connect.
3.1.1.1 Default Ethernet Negotiation Settings
The factory default negotiation settings for the Gigabit ports on the Switch are:
• Speed: Auto
• Duplex: Auto
• Flow control: Off
• Link Aggregation: Disabled
3.1.1.2 Auto-crossover
All ports are auto-crossover, that is auto-MDIX ports (Media Dependent Interface Crossover), so
you may use either a straight-through Ethernet cable or crossover Ethernet cable for all Gigabit port
connections. Auto-crossover ports automatically sense whether they need to function as crossover
or straight ports, so crossover cables can connect both computers and switches/hubs.
3.1.2 SFP/SFP+ Slots
These are four slots for Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) or SFP+ modules, such as an SFP/SFP+
transceiver. The SFP+ (SFP Plus) is an enhanced version of the SFP and supports data rates of 10
Gbps. A transceiver is a single unit that houses a transmitter and a receiver. Use a transceiver to
connect a fiber-optic cable to the Switch. The Switch does not come with transceivers. You must
use transceivers that comply with the Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) Transceiver MultiSource
Agreement (MSA). See the SFF committee’s INF-8074i specification Rev 1.0 for details.
You can change transceivers while the Switch is operating. You can use different transceivers to
connect to Ethernet switches with different types of fiber-optic connectors.
• Type: SFP or SFP+ connection interface
• Connection speed: 1 or 10 Gigabit per second (Gbps)
To avoid possible eye injury, do not look into an operating fiber-optic
module’s connectors.
3.1.2.1 Transceiver Installation
Use the following steps to install a mini-GBIC transceiver (SFP module).
1
Insert the transceiver into the slot with the exposed section of PCB board facing down.
2
Press the transceiver firmly until it clicks into place.
3
The Switch automatically detects the installed transceiver. Check the LEDs to verify that it is
functioning properly.
4
Close the transceiver’s latch (latch styles vary).
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide

Initial Setup Example
5.1 Overview
This chapter shows how to set up the Switch for an example network.
The following lists the configuration steps for the initial setup:
• Create a VLAN
• Set port VLAN ID
• Configure the Switch IP management address
5.1.1 Creating a VLAN
VLANs confine broadcast frames to the VLAN group in which the port(s) belongs. You can do this
with port-based VLAN or tagged static VLAN with fixed port members.
In this example, you want to configure port 1 as a member of VLAN 2.
Figure 24 Initial Setup Network Example: VLAN

In the Static VLAN screen, select ACTIVE, enter
a descriptive name in the Name field and enter 2
in the VLAN Group ID field for the VLAN2
network.
Note: The VLAN Group ID field in this screen and the VID field in the IP Setup screen
refer to the same VLAN ID.
3
Since the VLAN2 network is connected to port 1 on the Switch, select Fixed to configure port 1 to
be a permanent member of the VLAN only.
4
To ensure that VLAN-unaware devices (such as computers and hubs) can receive frames properly,
clear the TX Tagging check box to set the Switch to remove VLAN tags before sending.
5
Click Add to save the settings to the run-time memory. Settings in the run-time memory are lost
when the Switch’s power is turned off.
5.1.2 Setting Port VID
Use PVID to add a tag to incoming untagged frames received on that port so that the frames are
forwarded to the VLAN group that the tag defines.
In the example network, configure 2 as the port VID on port 1 so that any untagged frames
received on that port get sent to VLAN 2.

7.3 ZyXEL One Network (ZON) Utility Screen
ZON Utility is a program designed to help you deploy and manage a network more efficiently. It
detects devices automatically and allows you to do basic settings on devices in the network without
having to be near it.
The ZON Utility issues requests via ZyXEL Discovery Protocol (ZDP) and in response to the query,
the device responds back with basic information including IP address, firmware version, location,
system and model name in the same broadcast domain. The information is then displayed in the
ZON Utility screen and you can perform tasks like basic configuration of the devices and batch
firmware upgrade in it. You can download the ZON Utility at www.zyxel.com and install it on a PC.

differences between them are the time format.
When you select the Daytime (RFC 867) format, the Switch displays the day, month,
year and time with no time zone adjustment. When you use this format it is recommended
that you use a Daytime timeserver within your geographical time zone.
Time (RFC-868) format displays a 4-byte integer giving the total number of seconds
since 1970/1/1 at 0:0:0.
NTP (RFC-1305) is similar to Time (RFC-868).
None is the default value. Enter the time manually. Each time you turn on the Switch, the
time and date will be reset to 1970-1-1 0:0:0.
Time Server IP

8.4 Introduction to VLANs
A VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) allows a physical network to be partitioned into multiple logical
networks. Devices on a logical network belong to one group. A device can belong to more than one
group. With VLAN, a device cannot directly talk to or hear from devices that are not in the same
group(s); the traffic must first go through a router.
In MTU (Multi-Tenant Unit) applications, VLAN is vital in providing isolation and security among the
subscribers. When properly configured, VLAN prevents one subscriber from accessing the network
resources of another on the same LAN, thus a user will not see the printers and hard disks of
another user in the same building.
VLAN also increases network performance by limiting broadcasts to a smaller and more
manageable logical broadcast domain. In traditional switched environments, all broadcast packets
go to each and every individual port. With VLAN, all broadcasts are confined to a specific broadcast
domain.
Note: VLAN is unidirectional; it only governs outgoing traffic.
See Chapter 9 on page 111 for information on port-based and 802.1Q tagged VLANs.
8.5 Switch Setup
Click Basic Setting > Switch Setup in the navigation panel to display the screen as shown. The
VLAN setup screens change depending on whether you choose 802.1Q or Port Based in the VLAN
Type field in this screen. Refer to Chapter 9 on page 111 for more information on VLAN.

DESCRIPTION
VLAN Type
(Standalone
mode only)
Choose 802.1Q or Port Based. The VLAN Setup screen changes depending on whether
you choose 802.1Q VLAN type or Port Based VLAN type in this screen. See Chapter 9 on
page 111 for more information. The Switch does not have port-based VLAN available in
stacking mode (Active is enabled in Basic Setting > Stacking > Configuration), so this
field does not display in stacking mode.
Bridge Control
Protocol
Transparency
Select Active to allow the Switch to handle bridging control protocols (STP, for example).
You also need to define how to treat a BPDU in the Port Setup screen.
MAC Address Learning
MAC address learning reduces outgoing traffic broadcasts. For MAC address learning to occur on a port, the
port must be active.
Aging Time
Enter a time from 10 to 1000000 seconds. This is how long all dynamically learned MAC
addresses remain in the MAC address table before they age out (and must be relearned).
ARP Aging Time
Aging Time
Enter a time from 60 to 1000000 seconds. This is how long dynamically learned ARP entries
remain in the ARP table before they age out (and must be relearned). The setting here
applies to ARP entries which are newly added in the ARP table after you click Apply.
GARP Timer: Switches join VLANs by making a declaration. A declaration is made by issuing a Join message
using GARP. Declarations are withdrawn by issuing a Leave message. A Leave All message terminates all
registrations. GARP timers set declaration timeout values. See the chapter on VLAN setup for more
background information.
Join Timer
Join Timer sets the duration of the Join Period timer for GVRP in milliseconds. Each port has
a Join Period timer. The allowed Join Time range is between 100 and 65535 milliseconds;
the default is 200 milliseconds. See the chapter on VLAN setup for more background
information.
Leave Timer
Leave Time sets the duration of the Leave Period timer for GVRP in milliseconds. Each port
has a single Leave Period timer. Leave Time must be two times larger than Join Timer;
the default is 600 milliseconds.

Leave All Timer
Leave All Timer sets the duration of the Leave All Period timer for GVRP in milliseconds.
Each port has a single Leave All Period timer. Leave All Timer must be larger than Leave
Timer.
Priority Queue Assignment
IEEE 802.1p defines up to eight separate traffic types by inserting a tag into a MAC-layer frame that contains
bits to define class of service. Frames without an explicit priority tag are given the default priority of the
ingress port. Use the next fields to configure the priority level-to-physical queue mapping.
The Switch has eight physical queues that you can map to the 8 priority levels. On the Switch, traffic assigned
to higher index queues gets through faster while traffic in lower index queues is dropped if the network is
congested.
Priority Level (The following descriptions are based on the traffic types defined in the IEEE 802.1d standard
(which incorporates the 802.1p).
Priority 7
Typically used for network control traffic such as router configuration messages.
Priority 6
Typically used for voice traffic that is especially sensitive to jitter (jitter is the variations in
delay).
Priority 5
Typically used for video that consumes high bandwidth and is sensitive to jitter.
Priority 4
Typically used for controlled load, latency-sensitive traffic such as SNA (Systems Network
Architecture) transactions.
Priority 3
Typically used for “excellent effort” or better than best effort and would include important
business traffic that can tolerate some delay.
Priority 2
This is for “spare bandwidth”.
Priority 1
This is typically used for non-critical “background” traffic such as bulk transfers that are
allowed but that should not affect other applications and users.
Priority 0
Typically used for best-effort traffic.

8.6 IP Setup
Use the IP Setup screen to configure the Switch IP address, default gateway device, and the
management VLAN ID. The default gateway specifies the IP address of the default gateway (next
hop) for outgoing traffic.
8.6.1 Management IP Addresses
The Switch needs an IP address for it to be managed over the network. The factory default IP
address is 192.168.1.1. The subnet mask specifies the network number portion of an IP address.
The factory default subnet mask is 255.255.255.0.
You can configure up to 32 IP addresses which are used to access and manage the Switch from the
ports belonging to the pre-defined VLAN(s).
Note: You must configure a VLAN first. Each VLAN can only have one management IP
address.

DESCRIPTION
Speed/Duplex
Select the speed and the duplex mode of the Ethernet connection on this port. Choices are
Auto-1000M, 10M/Half Duplex, 10M/Full Duplex, 100M/Half Duplex, 100M/Full
Duplex and 1000M/Full Duplex (Gigabit connections only).
Selecting Auto-1000M (auto-negotiation) allows one port to negotiate with a peer port
automatically to obtain the connection speed (of up to 1000M) and duplex mode that both
ends support. When auto-negotiation is turned on, a port on the Switch negotiates with the
peer automatically to determine the connection speed and duplex mode. If the peer port
does not support auto-negotiation or turns off this feature, the Switch determines the
connection speed by detecting the signal on the cable and using half duplex mode. When the
Switch’s auto-negotiation is turned off, a port uses the pre-configured speed and duplex
mode when making a connection, thus requiring you to make sure that the settings of the
peer port are the same in order to connect.
Flow Control
A concentration of traffic on a port decreases port bandwidth and overflows buffer memory
causing packet discards and frame losses. Flow Control is used to regulate transmission of
signals to match the bandwidth of the receiving port.
The Switch uses IEEE802.3x flow control in full duplex mode and backpressure flow control in
half duplex mode.
IEEE802.3x flow control is used in full duplex mode to send a pause signal to the sending
port, causing it to temporarily stop sending signals when the receiving port memory buffers
fill.
Back Pressure flow control is typically used in half duplex mode to send a "collision" signal to
the sending port (mimicking a state of packet collision) causing the sending port to
temporarily stop sending signals and resend later. Select Flow Control to enable it.

Priority
This priority value is added to incoming frames without a (802.1p) priority queue tag. See
Priority Queue Assignment in Table 16 on page 75 for more information.

A powered device (PD) is a device such as an access point or a switch, that supports PoE (Power
over Ethernet) so that it can receive power from another device through an Ethernet port.
In the figure below, the IP camera and IP phone get their power directly from the Switch. Aside
from minimizing the need for cables and wires, PoE removes the hassle of trying to find a nearby
electric outlet to power up devices.

You can also set priorities so that the Switch is able to reserve and allocate power to certain PDs.
Note: The POE (Power over Ethernet) devices that supply or receive power and their
connected Ethernet cables must all be completely indoors.

Power-Up
Set how the Switch provides power to a connected PD at power-up.
802.3af - the Switch follows the IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet standard to supply power
to the connected PDs during power-up.
Legacy - the Switch can provide power to the connected PDs that require high inrush
currents at power-up. Inrush current is the maximum, instantaneous input current drawn by
the PD when first turned on.
Pre-802.3at - the Switch initially offers power on the port according to the IEEE 802.3af
standard, and then switches to support the IEEE 802.3at standard within 75 milliseconds
after a PD is connected to the port. Select this option if the Switch is performing 2-event
Layer-1 classification (PoE+ hardware classification) or the connected PD is NOT performing
Layer 2 power classification using Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP).
802.3at - the Switch supports the IEEE 802.3at High Power over Ethernet standard and can
supply power of up to 30W per Ethernet port. IEEE 802.3at is also known as PoE+ or PoE
Plus. An IEEE 802.3at compatible device is referred to as Type 2. Power Class 4 (High Power)
can only be used by Type 2 devices. If the connected PD requires a Class 4 current when it is

Wide Range
Detection
Select this to let the Switch have a wider detection range for the PD.
The Switch detects whether a connected device is a powered device or not before supplying
power to the port. For the PD detection, the Switch applies a fixed voltage to the device and
then receives returned current. If the returned current is within the IEEE 802.3AF/AT
standard range, the device will be considered as a valid PD by the Switch.
However, in real cases, environmental interferences might easily cause the returned current
to be out of the standard range.

8.11 Stacking
Stacking is directly connecting Switches to form a larger system that behaves as a single Switch or
a virtual chassis with increased port density.
Figure 79 Switch Stacking Concept
The last two SFP ports of your Switch are dedicated for Switch stacking. These are the Switches
that support stacking at the time of writing.

XGS2210-52
XGS2210-52HP
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
104
Chapter 8 Basic Setting
Note: Up to 2 Switches per stack are allowed.
You can manage each Switch in the stack from a master Switch using its web configurator or
console. Each Switch supports up to two stacking channels. Use the master Switch to assign a ‘slot
ID’ for each ‘linecard’ non-master Switch. ‘Slot’ refers to a Switch in the the ‘virtual chassis’ stack.
The advantages of stacking are:
• High port density - for example, two 48-port Switches can become one 96-port logical Switch
• Centralized management - log into a single IP address of the master switch to control all
Switches in the stacking system using the web configurator, CLI, SNMP or FTP
• Redundancy - Data redundancy allows traffic to be forwarded even if one Switch in the stack
fails. Management redundancy lets you still manage the stack even if one Switch in the stack fails
• Modularity and hot-swappable - you can add, remove, or replace Switches to increase or
decrease the stack with minimum disruption to ongoing network traffic.
You can build a Switch stack using a ring or chain topology. In a ring topology, the last Switch is
connected to the first.

This field displays the ZyNOS firmware that is currently running on the Switch.
8.11.3 Stacking Configuration
A supported Switch can change between stacking and standalone mode by selecting the Active
check box in the Basic Setting > Stacking > Configuration screen.
Note: When you change modes, all configurations except user accounts, but including
running configuration, config01 and config02 will be erased and the Switch will
reboot with a new config01. Therefore, you should back up previous configurations
if you want to reload them later.
Stacking will automatically choose a master Switch in a stack but you can overwrite that by actively
forcing a Switch to become a master Switch. In the Stacking Configuration screen, click Active
Force Master Mode to choose the master Switch. This master Switch will have the highest priority
over all other stacked Switches even when they have same priority value.
If two or more Switches have Active Force Master Mode enabled, then the Switch will use
System Priority to determine which is master. If they have the same System Priority, then the
Switch with the longest up-time is selected. Uptime is measured in increments of 10 minutes. The
Switch with the higher number of increments is selected. If they have the same uptime, then the
Switch with the lowest MAC address will be the master.
This is the master election priority in a stack system:

Note: Master election occurs when a stacking port link status changes (up / down). The
link status changes when (for example):
- a stacking port cable is disconnected
- a Switch in the stack reboots (as happens after you change stacking mode to
standalone)
- you add a Switch to the stack or
- a Switch in the stack shuts down.
Use the following procedure to create a stack:
1
Select a Switch to be the master. Change its mode to stacking mode. You will see a message asking
you to confirm the change. Click OK to confirm and the Switch will reboot automatically using a
new config01.
2
After reboot completes, the master LED will turn on.
3
Configure the Switch stacking priority to a high value, such as 63.
4
Change a second Switch to stacking mode and wait for it to finish rebooting automatically. This
master LED will also turn on.
5
Connect the two Switches using the stacking ports for the Switch defined.
6
The second Switch master LED will then turn off, and its Sys LED will blink while it's initializing.
Please wait until it stops blinking, indicating that it has joined the stack.
7
Repeat steps 4 to 6 to connect other Switches to the stack.
When the Switch is in Stacking mode, the web configurator will change port and VLAN port settings
to support the stacking mode. See Section 8.7 on page 80 and Section 9.4 on page 117 for details
on the port settings.

VLAN
9.1 Overview
This chapter shows you how to configure 802.1Q tagged and port-based VLANs. The type of screen
you see here depends on the VLAN Type you selected in the Switch Setup screen.
9.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the VLAN Status screen (Section 9.2 on page 114) to view and search all VLAN groups.
• Use the VLAN Detail screen (Section 9.2.1 on page 115) to view detailed port settings and
status of the VLAN group.
• Use the Static VLAN screen (Section 9.5 on page 118) to configure and view 802.1Q VLAN
parameters for the Switch.
• Use the VLAN Port Setting screen (Section 9.6 on page 121) to configure the static VLAN (IEEE
802.1Q) settings on a port.
• Use the Subnet Based VLAN screen (Section 9.7 on page 124) to set up VLANs that allow you
to group traffic into logical VLANs based on the source IP subnet you specify.
• Use the Protocol Based VLAN screen (Section 9.8 on page 126) to set up VLANs that allow you
to group traffic into logical VLANs based on the protocol you specify.
• Use the Voice VLAN screen (Section 9.9 on page 129) to set up VLANs that allow you to group
voice traffic with defined priority and enable the switch port to carry the voice traffic separately
from data traffic to ensure the sound quality does not deteriorate.
• Use the MAC Based VLAN screen (Section 9.10 on page 130) to set up VLANs that allow you to
group untagged packets into logical VLANs based on the source MAC address of the packet. This
eliminates the need to reconfigure the switch when you change ports. The switch will forward the
packets based on the source MAC address you setup previously.
• Use the Port-Based VLAN screen (Section 9.11 on page 131) to set up VLANs where the packet
forwarding decision is based on the destination MAC address and its associated port.
9.1.2 What You Need to Know
Read this section to know more about VLAN and how to configure the screens.
IEEE 802.1Q Tagged VLANs
A tagged VLAN uses an explicit tag (VLAN ID) in the MAC header to identify the VLAN membership
of a frame across bridges - they are not confined to the switch on which they were created. The
VLANs can be created statically by hand or dynamically through GVRP. The VLAN ID associates a
frame with a specific VLAN and provides the information that switches need to process the frame
across the network. A tagged frame is four bytes longer than an untagged frame and contains two
bytes of TPID (Tag Protocol Identifier, residing within the type/length field of the Ethernet frame)
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
111
Chapter 9 VLAN
and two bytes of TCI (Tag Control Information, starts after the source address field of the Ethernet
frame).
The CFI (Canonical Format Indicator) is a single-bit flag, always set to zero for Ethernet switches. If
a frame received at an Ethernet port has a CFI set to 1, then that frame should not be forwarded as
it is to an untagged port. The remaining twelve bits define the VLAN ID, giving a possible maximum
number of 4,096 VLANs. Note that user priority and VLAN ID are independent of each other. A
frame with VID (VLAN Identifier) of null (0) is called a priority frame, meaning that only the priority
level is significant and the default VID of the ingress port is given as the VID of the frame. Of the
4096 possible VIDs, a VID of 0 is used to identify priority frames and value 4095 (FFF) is reserved,
so the maximum possible VLAN configurations are 4,094.

Forwarding Tagged and Untagged Frames
Each port on the Switch is capable of passing tagged or untagged frames. To forward a frame from
an 802.1Q VLAN-aware switch to an 802.1Q VLAN-unaware switch, the Switch first decides where
to forward the frame and then strips off the VLAN tag. To forward a frame from an 802.1Q VLANunaware switch to an 802.1Q VLAN-aware switch, the Switch first decides where to forward the
frame, and then inserts a VLAN tag reflecting the ingress port's default VID. The default PVID is
VLAN 1 for all ports, but this can be changed.
A broadcast frame (or a multicast frame for a multicast group that is known by the system) is
duplicated only on ports that are members of the VID (except the ingress port itself), thus confining
the broadcast to a specific domain.
9.1.2.1 Automatic VLAN Registration
GARP and GVRP are the protocols used to automatically register VLAN membership across switches.
GARP
GARP (Generic Attribute Registration Protocol) allows network switches to register and de-register
attribute values with other GARP participants within a bridged LAN. GARP is a protocol that provides
a generic mechanism for protocols that serve a more specific application, for example, GVRP.
GARP Timers
Switches join VLANs by making a declaration. A declaration is made by issuing a Join message
using GARP. Declarations are withdrawn by issuing a Leave message. A Leave All message
terminates all registrations. GARP timers set declaration timeout values.
GVRP
GVRP (GARP VLAN Registration Protocol) is a registration protocol that defines a way for switches to
register necessary VLAN members on ports across the network. Enable this function to permit VLAN
groups beyond the local Switch.

Ingress filtering
If set, the Switch discards incoming frames for VLANs that do not
have this port as a member
9.1.2.2 Port VLAN Trunking
Enable VLAN Trunking on a port to allow frames belonging to unknown VLAN groups to pass
through that port. This is useful if you want to set up VLAN groups on end devices without having to
configure the same VLAN groups on intermediary devices.
Refer to the following figure. Suppose you want to create VLAN groups 1 and 2 (V1 and V2) on
devices A and B. Without VLAN Trunking, you must configure VLAN groups 1 and 2 on all
intermediary switches C, D and E; otherwise they will drop frames with unknown VLAN group tags.
However, with VLAN Trunking enabled on a port(s) in each intermediary switch you only need to
create VLAN groups in the end devices (A and B). C, D and E automatically allow frames with VLAN
group tags 1 and 2 (VLAN groups that are unknown to those switches) to pass through their VLAN
trunking port(s).

9.7 Subnet Based VLANs
Subnet based VLANs allow you to group traffic into logical VLANs based on the source IP subnet you
specify. When a frame is received on a port, the Switch checks if a tag is added already and the IP
subnet it came from. The untagged packets from the same IP subnet are then placed in the same
subnet based VLAN. One advantage of using subnet based VLANs is that priority can be assigned to
traffic from the same IP subnet.
For example, an ISP (Internet Services Provider) may divide different types of services it provides
to customers into different IP subnets. Traffic for voice services is designated for IP subnet
172.16.1.0/24, video for 192.168.1.0/24 and data for 10.1.1.0/24. The Switch can then be
configured to group incoming traffic based on the source IP subnet of incoming frames.
You configure a subnet based VLAN with priority 6 and VID of 100 for traffic received from IP subnet
172.16.1.0/24 (voice services). You also have a subnet based VLAN with priority 5 and VID of 200
for traffic received from IP subnet 192.168.1.0/24 (video services). Lastly, you configure VLAN with
priority 3 and VID of 300 for traffic received from IP subnet 10.1.1.0/24 (data services). All
untagged incoming frames will be classified based on their source IP subnet and prioritized
accordingly. That is video services receive the highest priority and data the lowest.

9.8 Protocol Based VLANs
Protocol based VLANs allow you to group traffic into logical VLANs based on the protocol you
specify. When an upstream frame is received on a port (configured for a protocol based VLAN), the
Switch checks if a tag is added already and its protocol. The untagged packets of the same protocol
are then placed in the same protocol based VLAN. One advantage of using protocol based VLANs is
that priority can be assigned to traffic of the same protocol.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
126
Chapter 9 VLAN
Note: Protocol based VLAN applies to un-tagged packets and is applicable only when you
use IEEE 802.1Q tagged VLAN.
For example, port 1, 2, 3 and 4 belong to static VLAN 100, and port 4, 5, 6, 7 belong to static VLAN
120. You configure a protocol based VLAN A with priority 3 for ARP traffic received on port 1, 2 and
3. You also have a protocol based VLAN B with priority 2 for Apple Talk traffic received on port 6 and
7. All upstream ARP traffic from port 1, 2 and 3 will be grouped together, and all upstream Apple
Talk traffic from port 6 and 7 will be in another group and have higher priority than ARP traffic,
when they go through the uplink port to a backbone switch C.

9.10 MAC Based VLAN
The MAC-based VLAN feature assigns incoming untagged packets to a VLAN and classifies the
traffic based on the source MAC address of the packet. When untagged packets arrive at the switch,
the source MAC address of the packet is looked up in a MAC to VLAN mapping table. If an entry is
found, the corresponding VLAN ID is assigned to the packet. The assigned VLAN ID is verified
against the VLAN table. If the VLAN is valid, ingress processing on the packet continues; otherwise,
the packet is dropped.
This feature allows users to change ports without having to reconfigure the VLAN. You can assign
priority to the MAC-based VLAN and define a MAC to VLAN mapping table by entering a specified

9.11 Port-Based VLAN Setup
Port-based VLANs are VLANs where the packet forwarding decision is based on the destination MAC
address and its associated port.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
131
Chapter 9 VLAN
Port-based VLANs require allowed outgoing ports to be defined for each port. Therefore, if you wish
to allow two subscriber ports to talk to each other, for example, between conference rooms in a
hotel, you must define the egress (an egress port is an outgoing port, that is, a port through which
a data packet leaves) for both ports.
Port-based VLANs are specific only to the Switch on which they were created.
Note: When you activate port-based VLAN, the Switch uses a default VLAN ID of 1. You
cannot change it.
Note: In screens (such as IP Setup and Filtering) that require a VID, you must enter 1
as the VID.
The port-based VLAN setup screen is shown next. The CPU management port forms a VLAN with all
Ethernet ports.

Choose All connected or Port isolation.
All connected means all ports can communicate with each other, that is, there are no virtual
LANs. All incoming and outgoing ports are selected. This option is the most flexible but also
the least secure.
Port isolation means that each port can only communicate with the CPU management port
and cannot communicate with each other. All incoming ports are selected while only the CPU
outgoing port is selected. This option is the most limiting but also the most secure.
After you make your selection, click Apply (top right of screen) to display the screens as

outgoing ports, but you must also click Apply at the bottom of the screen.
Incoming
These are the ingress ports; an ingress port is an incoming port, that is, a port through which
a data packet enters. If you wish to allow two subscriber ports to talk to each other, you must
define the ingress port for both ports. The numbers in the top row denote the incoming port
for the corresponding port listed on the left (its outgoing port). CPU refers to the Switch
management port. By default it forms a VLAN with all Ethernet ports. If it does not form a
VLAN with a particular port then the Switch cannot be managed from that port.
Outgoing
These are the egress ports; an egress port is an outgoing port, that is, a port through which a
data packet leaves. If you wish to allow two subscriber ports to talk to each other, you must
define the egress port for both ports. CPU refers to the Switch management port. By default
it forms a VLAN with all Ethernet ports. If it does not form a VLAN with a particular port then
the Switch cannot be managed from that port.

Static MAC Forward Setup
10.1 Overview
This chapter discusses how to configure forwarding rules based on MAC addresses of devices on
your network.
Use these screens to configure static MAC address forwarding.
10.1.1 What You Can Do
Use the Static MAC Forwarding screen (Section 10.2 on page 137) to assign static MAC
addresses for a port.
10.2 Configuring Static MAC Forwarding
A static MAC address is an address that has been manually entered in the MAC address table. Static
MAC addresses do not age out. When you set up static MAC address rules, you are setting static
MAC addresses for a port. This may reduce the need for broadcasting.
Static MAC address forwarding together with port security allow only computers in the MAC address
table on a port to access the Switch. See Chapter 19 on page 206 for more information on port
security.

Static Multicast Forward Setup
11.1 Static Multicast Forward Setup Overview
This chapter discusses how to configure forwarding rules based on multicast MAC addresses of
devices on your network.
Use these screens to configure static multicast address forwarding.
11.1.1 What You Can Do
Use the Static Multicast Forward Setup screen (Section 11.2 on page 141) to configure rules to
forward specific multicast frames, such as streaming or control frames, to specific port(s).
11.1.2 What You Need To Know
A multicast MAC address is the MAC address of a member of a multicast group. A static multicast
address is a multicast MAC address that has been manually entered in the multicast table. Static
multicast addresses do not age out. Static multicast forwarding allows you (the administrator) to
forward multicast frames to a member without the member having to join the group first.
If a multicast group has no members, then the switch will either flood the multicast frames to all
ports or drop them. Figure 108 on page 140 shows such unknown multicast frames flooded to all
ports. With static multicast forwarding, you can forward these multicasts to port(s) within a VLAN
group. Figure 109 on page 141 shows frames being forwarded to devices connected to port 3.
Figure 110 on page 141 shows frames being forwarded to ports 2 and 3 within VLAN group 4.

Spanning Tree Protocol
13.1 Spanning Tree Protocol Overview
The Switch supports Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and
Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP) as defined in the following standards.
• IEEE 802.1D Spanning Tree Protocol
• IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol
• IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol
The Switch also allows you to set up multiple STP configurations (or trees). Ports can then be
assigned to the trees.
13.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the Spanning Tree Protocol Status screen (Section 13.2 on page 148) to view the STP
status in the different STP modes (RSTP, MRSTP or MSTP) you can configure on the Switch.
• Use the Spanning Tree Configuration screen (Section 13.3 on page 149) to activate one of the
STP modes on the Switch.
• Use the Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol screen (Section 13.4 on page 149) to configure RSTP
settings.
• Use the Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol Status screen (Section 13.5 on page 153) to view the
RSTP status .
• Use the Multiple Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol screen (Section 13.6 on page 155) to
configure MRSTP.
• Use the Multiple Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol Status screen (Section 13.7 on page 158) to
view the MRSTP status.
• Use the Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol screen (Section 13.8 on page 160) to configure
MSTP.
• Use the Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol Status screen (Section 13.9 on page 167) to view
the MSTP status.
13.1.2 What You Need to Know
Read on for concepts on STP that can help you configure the screens in this chapter.
(Rapid) Spanning Tree Protocol
(R)STP detects and breaks network loops and provides backup links between switches, bridges or
routers. It allows a switch to interact with other (R)STP -compliant switches in your network to
ensure that only one path exists between any two stations on the network.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
145
Chapter 13 Spanning Tree Protocol
The Switch uses IEEE 802.1w RSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol) that allows faster convergence
of the spanning tree than STP (while also being backwards compatible with STP-only aware
bridges). In RSTP, topology change information is directly propagated throughout the network from
the device that generates the topology change. In STP, a longer delay is required as the device that
causes a topology change first notifies the root bridge that then notifies the network. Both RSTP
and STP flush unwanted learned addresses from the filtering database. In RSTP, the port states are
Discarding, Learning, and Forwarding.
Note: In this user’s guide, “STP” refers to both STP and RSTP.
STP Terminology
The root bridge is the base of the spanning tree.
Path cost is the cost of transmitting a frame onto a LAN through that port. The recommended cost
is assigned according to the speed of the link to which a port is attached. The slower the media, the
higher the cost.

On each bridge, the root port is the port through which this bridge communicates with the root. It is
the port on this switch with the lowest path cost to the root (the root path cost). If there is no root
port, then this switch has been accepted as the root bridge of the spanning tree network.
For each LAN segment, a designated bridge is selected. This bridge has the lowest cost to the root
among the bridges connected to the LAN.
How STP Works
After a bridge determines the lowest cost-spanning tree with STP, it enables the root port and the
ports that are the designated ports for connected LANs, and disables all other ports that participate
in STP. Network packets are therefore only forwarded between enabled ports, eliminating any
possible network loops.
STP-aware switches exchange Bridge Protocol Data Units (BPDUs) periodically. When the bridged
LAN topology changes, a new spanning tree is constructed.
Once a stable network topology has been established, all bridges listen for Hello BPDUs (Bridge
Protocol Data Units) transmitted from the root bridge. If a bridge does not get a Hello BPDU after a
predefined interval (Max Age), the bridge assumes that the link to the root bridge is down. This
bridge then initiates negotiations with other bridges to reconfigure the network to re-establish a
valid network topology.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide

Chapter 13 Spanning Tree Protocol
STP Port States
STP assigns five port states to eliminate packet looping. A bridge port is not allowed to go directly
from blocking state to forwarding state so as to eliminate transient loops.
Table 59 STP Port States
PORT STATE DESCRIPTION
Disabled
STP is disabled (default).
Blocking
Only configuration and management BPDUs are received and processed.
Listening
All BPDUs are received and processed.
Note: The listening state does not exist in RSTP.
Learning
All BPDUs are received and processed. Information frames are submitted to the learning
process but not forwarded.
Forwarding
All BPDUs are received and processed. All information frames are received and forwarded.
Multiple RSTP
MRSTP (Multiple RSTP) is ZyXEL’s proprietary feature that is compatible with RSTP and STP. With
MRSTP, you can have more than one spanning tree on your Switch and assign port(s) to each tree.
Each spanning tree operates independently with its own bridge information.
In the following example, there are two RSTP instances (MRSTP 1 and MRSTP2) on switch A.
To set up MRSTP, activate MRSTP on the Switch and specify which port(s) belong to which spanning
tree.
Note: Each port can belong to one STP tree only.
Figure 113 MRSTP Network Example
Multiple STP
Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (IEEE 802.1s) is backward compatible with STP/RSTP and
addresses the limitations of existing spanning tree protocols (STP and RSTP) in networks to include
the following features:
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
147
Chapter 13 Spanning Tree Protocol
• One Common and Internal Spanning Tree (CIST) that represents the entire network’s
connectivity.
• Grouping of multiple bridges (or switching devices) into regions that appear as one single bridge
on the network.
• A VLAN can be mapped to a specific Multiple Spanning Tree Instance (MSTI). MSTI allows
multiple VLANs to use the same spanning tree.
• Load-balancing is possible as traffic from different VLANs can use distinct paths in a region.

Bridge Priority
Bridge priority is used in determining the root switch, root port and designated port. The
switch with the highest priority (lowest numeric value) becomes the STP root switch. If all
switches have the same priority, the switch with the lowest MAC address will then become
the root switch. Select a value from the drop-down list box.
The lower the numeric value you assign, the higher the priority for this bridge.
Bridge Priority determines the root bridge, which in turn determines Hello Time, Max Age
and Forwarding Delay.
Hello Time
This is the time interval in seconds between BPDU (Bridge Protocol Data Units)
configuration message generations by the root switch. The allowed range is 1 to 10
seconds.

LABEL
DESCRIPTION
Max Age
This is the maximum time (in seconds) the Switch can wait without receiving a BPDU
before attempting to reconfigure. All Switch ports (except for designated ports) should
receive BPDUs at regular intervals. Any port that ages out STP information (provided in
the last BPDU) becomes the designated port for the attached LAN. If it is a root port, a
new root port is selected from among the Switch ports attached to the network. The
allowed range is 6 to 40 seconds.
Forwarding Delay
This is the maximum time (in seconds) the Switch will wait before changing states. This
delay is required because every switch must receive information about topology changes
before it starts to forward frames. In addition, each port needs time to listen for
conflicting information that would make it return to a blocking state; otherwise,
temporary data loops might result. The allowed range is 4 to 30 seconds.
As a general rule:
Note: 2 * (Forward Delay - 1) >= Max Age >= 2 * (Hello Time + 1)

Note: Changes in this row are copied to all the ports as soon as you make them.
Active
Select this check box to activate RSTP on this port.
Edge
Select this check box to configure a port as an edge port when it is directly attached to a
computer. An edge port changes its initial STP port state from blocking state to forwarding
state immediately without going through listening and learning states right after the port
is configured as an edge port or when its link status changes.
Note: An edge port becomes a non-edge port as soon as it receives a Bridge Protocol Data
Unit (BPDU).
Root Guard
Select this check box to enable root guard on this port in order to prevent the switch(es)
attached to the port from becoming the root bridge.
With root guard enabled, a port is blocked when the Switch receives a superior BPDU on
it. The Switch allows traffic to pass through this port again when the switch connected to
the port stops to send superior BPDUs.
Priority
Configure the priority for each port here.
Priority decides which port should be disabled when more than one port forms a loop in a
switch. Ports with a higher priority numeric value are disabled first. The allowed range is
between 0 and 255 and the default value is 128.
Path Cost
Path cost is the cost of transmitting a frame on to a LAN through that port. It is
recommended to assign this value according to the speed of the bridge. The slower the
media, the higher the cost - see Table 58 on page 146 for more information.

13.10 Technical Reference
This section provides technical background information on the topics discussed in this chapter.
13.10.1 MSTP Network Example
The following figure shows a network example where two VLANs are configured on the two
switches. If the switches are using STP or RSTP, the link for VLAN 2 will be blocked as STP and RSTP
allow only one link in the network and block the redundant link.
Figure 131 STP/RSTP Network Example
A
VLAN 1
VLAN 2
B
With MSTP, VLANs 1 and 2 are mapped to different spanning trees in the network. Thus traffic from
the two VLANs travel on different paths. The following figure shows the network example using
MSTP.

13.10.2 MST Region
An MST region is a logical grouping of multiple network devices that appears as a single device to
the rest of the network. Each MSTP-enabled device can only belong to one MST region. When
BPDUs enter an MST region, external path cost (of paths outside this region) is increased by one.
Internal path cost (of paths within this region) is increased by one when BPDUs traverse the region.
Devices that belong to the same MST region are configured to have the same MSTP configuration
identification settings. These include the following parameters:
• Name of the MST region
• Revision level as the unique number for the MST region
• VLAN-to-MST Instance mapping
13.10.3 MST Instance
An MST Instance (MSTI) is a spanning tree instance. VLANs can be configured to run on a specific
MSTI. Each created MSTI is identified by a unique number (known as an MST ID) known internally
to a region. Thus an MSTI does not span across MST regions.
The following figure shows an example where there are two MST regions. Regions 1 and 2 have 2
spanning tree instances.

13.10.4 Common and Internal Spanning Tree (CIST)
A CIST represents the connectivity of the entire network and it is equivalent to a spanning tree in
an STP/RSTP. The CIST is the default MST instance (MSTID 0). Any VLANs that are not members of
an MST instance are members of the CIST. In an MSTP-enabled network, there is only one CIST
that runs between MST regions and single spanning tree devices. A network may contain multiple
MST regions and other network segments running RSTP.

Link Aggregation
17.1 Link Aggregation Overview
This chapter shows you how to logically aggregate physical links to form one logical, higherbandwidth link.
Link aggregation (trunking) is the grouping of physical ports into one logical higher-capacity link.
You may want to trunk ports if for example, it is cheaper to use multiple lower-speed links than to
under-utilize a high-speed, but more costly, single-port link. However, the more ports you
aggregate then the fewer available ports you have. A trunk group is one logical link containing
multiple ports.
The beginning port of each trunk group must be physically connected to form a trunk group.
17.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the Link Aggregation Status screen (Section 17.2 on page 186) to view ports you have
configured to be in the trunk group, ports that are currently transmitting data as one logical link
in the trunk group and so on.
• Use the Link Aggregation Setting screen (Section 17.3 on page 188) to configure to enable
static link aggregation.
• Use the Link Aggregation Control Protocol screen (Section 17.3.1 on page 191) to enable
Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP).
17.1.2 What You Need to Know
The Switch supports both static and dynamic link aggregation.
Note: In a properly planned network, it is recommended to implement static link
aggregation only. This ensures increased network stability and control over the
trunk groups on your Switch.
See Section 17.4.1 on page 194 for a static port trunking example.
Dynamic Link Aggregation
The Switch adheres to the IEEE 802.3ad standard for static and dynamic (LACP) port trunking.
The IEEE 802.3ad standard describes the Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) for dynamically
creating and managing trunk groups.
When you enable LACP link aggregation on a port, the port can automatically negotiate with the
ports at the remote end of a link to establish trunk groups. LACP also allows port redundancy, that
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
185
Chapter 17 Link Aggregation
is, if an operational port fails, then one of the “standby” ports become operational without user
intervention. Please note that:
• You must connect all ports point-to-point to the same Ethernet switch and configure the ports for
LACP trunking.
• LACP only works on full-duplex links.
• All ports in the same trunk group must have the same media type, speed, duplex mode and flow
control settings.
Configure trunk groups or LACP before you connect the Ethernet switch to avoid causing network
topology loops.
Link Aggregation ID
LACP aggregation ID consists of the following information1:

DESCRIPTION
System
Priority
LACP system priority is a number between 1 and 65,535. The switch with the lowest system
priority (and lowest port number if system priority is the same) becomes the LACP “server”.
The LACP “server” controls the operation of LACP setup. Enter a number to set the priority of
an active port using Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). The smaller the number, the
higher the priority level.
Group ID
The field identifies the link aggregation group, that is, one logical link containing multiple
ports.
LACP Active
Select this option to enable LACP for a trunk.
Slot (Stacking
mode)
This field appears only in stacking mode. Click the drop-down list to choose the slot number
of the Switch in a stack.
Port
(Standalone or

mode)
This field displays the port number. In stacking mode, the first number is the slot ID and the
second is the port number. * means all ports.
*
Settings in this row apply to all ports.
Use this row only if you want to make some settings the same for all ports. Use this row first
to set the common settings and then make adjustments on a port-by-port basis.
Note: Changes in this row are copied to all the ports as soon as you make them.
LACP Timeout
Timeout is the time interval between the individual port exchanges of LACP packets in order
to check that the peer port in the trunk group is still up. If a port does not respond after three
tries, then it is deemed to be “down” and is removed from the trunk. Set a short timeout
(one second) for busy trunked links to ensure that disabled ports are removed from the trunk
group as soon as possible.
Select either 1 second or 30 seconds.
Apply
Click Apply to save your changes to the Switch’s run-time memory. The Switch loses these
changes if it is turned off or loses power, so use the Save link on the top navigation panel to
save your changes to the non-volatile memory when you are done configuring.

Port Authentication
18.1 Port Authentication Overview
This chapter describes the IEEE 802.1x and MAC authentication methods.
Port authentication is a way to validate access to ports on the Switch to clients based on an external
server (authentication server). The Switch supports the following methods for port authentication:
• IEEE 802.1x2 - An authentication server validates access to a port based on a username and
password provided by the user.
• MAC Authentication - An authentication server validates access to a port based on the MAC
address and password of the client.
Both types of authentication use the RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial In User Service, RFC
2138, 2139) protocol to validate users. See RADIUS and TACACS+ on page 259 for more
information on configuring your RADIUS server settings.
Note: If you enable IEEE 802.1x authentication and MAC authentication on the same
port, the Switch performs IEEE 802.1x authentication first. If a user fails to
authenticate via the IEEE 802.1x method, then access to the port is denied.
18.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the Port Authentication screen (Section 18.2 on page 198) to display the links to the
configuration screens where you can enable the port authentication methods.
• Use the 802.1x screen (Section 18.3 on page 198) to activate IEEE 802.1x security.
• Use the MAC Authentication screen (Section 18.4 on page 202) to activate MAC authentication.
18.1.2 What You Need to Know
IEEE 802.1x Authentication
The following figure illustrates how a client connecting to a IEEE 802.1x authentication enabled port
goes through a validation process. The Switch prompts the client for login information in the form of
a user name and password. When the client provides the login credentials, the Switch sends an
authentication request to a RADIUS server. The RADIUS server validates whether this client is
allowed access to the port.
2.
At the time of writing, IEEE 802.1x is not supported by all operating systems. See your operating system documentation.
If your operating system does not support 802.1x, then you may need to install 802.1x client software.

18.1.3 MAC Authentication
MAC authentication works in a very similar way to IEEE 802.1x authentication. The main difference
is that the Switch does not prompt the client for login credentials. The login credentials are based
on the source MAC address of the client connecting to a port on the Switch along with a password
configured specifically for MAC authentication on the Switch.

18.3.1 Guest VLAN
When 802.1x port authentication is enabled on the Switch and its ports, clients that do not have the
correct credentials are blocked from using the port(s). You can configure your Switch to have one
VLAN that acts as a guest VLAN. If you enable the guest VLAN (102 in the example) on a port (2 in
the example), the user (A in the example) that is not IEEE 802.1x capable or fails to enter the
correct username and password can still access the port, but traffic from the user is forwarded to
the guest VLAN. That is, unauthenticated users can have access to limited network resources in the
same guest VLAN, such as the Internet. The rights granted to the Guest VLAN depends on how the
network administrator configures switches or routers with the guest network feature.

Port Security
19.1 Port Security Overview
This chapter shows you how to set up port security.
Port security allows only packets with dynamically learned MAC addresses and/or configured static
MAC addresses to pass through a port on the Switch. The Switch can learn up to 16K MAC
addresses in total with no limit on individual ports other than the sum cannot exceed 16K.
For maximum port security, enable this feature, disable MAC address learning and configure static
MAC address(es) for a port. It is not recommended you disable port security together with MAC
address learning as this will result in many broadcasts. By default, MAC address learning is still
enabled even though the port security is not activated.
19.1.1 What You Can Do
Use the Port Security screen (Section 19.2 on page 206) to enable port security and disable MAC
address learning. You can also enable the port security feature on a port.

Classifier
21.1 Classifier Overview
This chapter introduces and shows you how to configure the packet classifier on the Switch. It also
discusses Quality of Service (QoS) and classifier concepts as employed by the Switch.
21.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the Classifier Status screen (Section 21.2 on page 212) to view the classifiers configured
on the Switch and how many times the traffic matches the rules.
• Use the Classifier Configuration screen (Section 21.3 on page 213) to define the classifiers
and view a summary of the classifier configuration. After you define the classifier, you can specify
actions (or policy) to act upon the traffic that matches the rules.
• Use the Classifier Global Setting screen (Section 21.4 on page 219) to configure the match
order and enable logging on the Switch.
21.1.2 What You Need to Know
Quality of Service (QoS) refers to both a network's ability to deliver data with minimum delay, and
the networking methods used to control the use of bandwidth. Without QoS, all traffic data is
equally likely to be dropped when the network is congested. This can cause a reduction in network
performance and make the network inadequate for time-critical application such as video-ondemand.
A classifier groups traffic into data flows according to specific criteria such as the source address,
destination address, source port number, destination port number or incoming port number. For
example, you can configure a classifier to select traffic from the same protocol port (such as Telnet)
to form a flow.
Configure QoS on the Switch to group and prioritize application traffic and fine-tune network
performance. Setting up QoS involves two separate steps:
1
Configure classifiers to sort traffic into different flows.
2
Configure policy rules to define actions to be performed on a classified traffic flow (refer to Chapter
22 on page 221 to configure policy rules).

Parameters
Set the fields below for this policy. You only have to set the field(s) that is related to the action(s) you
configure in the Action field.
General
Egress Port
Type the number of an outgoing port.
Priority
Specify a priority level.
DSCP
Specify a DSCP (DiffServ Code Point) number between 0 and 63.
TOS
Specify the type of service (TOS) priority level.
Metering
You can configure the desired bandwidth available to a traffic flow. Traffic that exceeds the
maximum bandwidth allocated (in cases where the network is congested) is called out-ofprofile traffic.
Bandwidth
Specify the bandwidth in kilobit per second (Kbps). Enter a number between 1 and 1000000.
Out-ofProfile
DSCP
Specify a new DSCP number (between 0 and 63) if you want to replace or remark the DSCP
number for out-of-profile traffic.
Action
Specify the action(s) the Switch takes on the associated classified traffic flow.
Note: You can specify only one action (pair) in a policy rule. To have the Switch take multiple actions on the
same traffic flow, you need to define multiple classifiers with the same criteria and apply different policy
rules.
Say you have several classifiers that identify the same traffic flow and you specify a different policy rule for
each. If their policy actions conflict (Discard the packet, Send the packet to the egress port and Rate
Limit), the Switch only applies the policy rules with the Discard the packet and Send the packet to the
egress port actions depending on the classifier names. The longer the classifier name, the higher the
classifier priority. If two classifier names are the same length, the bigger the character, the higher the
classifier priority. The lowercase letters (such as a and b) have higher priority than the capitals (such as A and
B) in the classifier name. For example, the classifier with the name of class 2, class a or class B takes priority
over the classifier with the name of class 1 or class A.
Let’s say you set two classifiers (Class 1 and Class 2) and both identify all traffic from MAC address
11:22:33:44:55:66 on port 3.
If Policy 1 applies to Class 1 and the action is to drop the packets, Policy 2 applies to Class 2 and the action is
to forward the packets to the egress port, the Switch will forward the packets.
If Policy 1 applies to Class 1 and the action is to drop the packets, Policy 2 applies to Class 2 and the action is
to enable bandwidth limitation, the Switch will discard the packets immediately.
If Policy 1 applies to Class 1 and the action is to forward the packets to the egress port, Policy 2 applies to
Class 2 and the action is to enable bandwidth limitation, the Switch will forward the packets.
Forwarding
Select No change to forward the packets.

Queuing Method
23.1 Queuing Method Overview
This chapter introduces the queuing methods supported.
Queuing is used to help solve performance degradation when there is network congestion. Use the
Queuing Method screen to configure queuing algorithms for outgoing traffic. See also Priority
Queue Assignment in Switch Setup and 802.1p Priority in Port Setup for related information.
Note: Six queues are supported in Stacking mode.
23.1.1 What You Can Do
Use the Queueing Method screen (Section 23.2 on page 227) set priorities for the queues of the
Switch. This distributes bandwidth across the different traffic queues.
23.1.2 What You Need to Know
Queuing algorithms allow switches to maintain separate queues for packets from each individual
source or flow and prevent a source from monopolizing the bandwidth.
Strictly Priority Queuing
Strictly Priority Queuing (SPQ) services queues based on priority only. As traffic comes into the
Switch, traffic on the highest priority queue, Q7 is transmitted first. When that queue empties,
traffic on the next highest-priority queue, Q6 is transmitted until Q6 empties, and then traffic is
transmitted on Q5 and so on. If higher priority queues never empty, then traffic on lower priority
queues never gets sent. SPQ does not automatically adapt to changing network requirements.
Weighted Fair Queuing
Weighted Fair Queuing is used to guarantee each queue's minimum bandwidth based on its
bandwidth weight (portion) (the number you configure in the Weight field) when there is traffic
congestion. WFQ is activated only when a port has more traffic than it can handle. Queues with
larger weights get more guaranteed bandwidth than queues with smaller weights. This queuing
mechanism is highly efficient in that it divides any available bandwidth across the different traffic
queues. By default, the weight for Q0 is 1, for Q1 is 2, for Q2 is 3, and so on.
Weighted Round Robin Scheduling (WRR)
Round Robin Scheduling services queues on a rotating basis and is activated only when a port has
more traffic than it can handle. A queue is a given an amount of bandwidth irrespective of the
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
226
Chapter 23 Queuing Method
incoming traffic on that port. This queue then moves to the back of the list. The next queue is given
an equal amount of bandwidth, and then moves to the end of the list; and so on, depending on the
number of queues being used. This works in a looping fashion until a queue is empty.
Weighted Round Robin Scheduling (WRR) uses the same algorithm as round robin scheduling, but
services queues based on their priority and queue weight (the number you configure in the queue
Weight field) rather than a fixed amount of bandwidth. WRR is activated only when a port has
more traffic than it can handle. Queues with larger weights get more service than queues with
smaller weights. This queuing mechanism is highly efficient in that it divides any available
bandwidth across the different traffic queues and returns to queues that have not yet emptied.
23.2 Configuring Queuing
Use this screen to set priorities for the queues of the Switch. This distributes bandwidth across the
different traffic queues.

Multicast
24.1 Multicast Overview
This chapter shows you how to configure various multicast features.
Traditionally, IP packets are transmitted in one of either two ways - Unicast (1 sender to 1 recipient)
or Broadcast (1 sender to everybody on the network). Multicast delivers IP packets to just a group
of hosts on the network.
IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) is a network-layer protocol used to establish
membership in a multicast group - it is not used to carry user data. Refer to RFC 1112, RFC 2236
and RFC 3376 for information on IGMP versions 1, 2 and 3 respectively.
24.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the Multicast Setup screen (Section 24.2 on page 234) to display the links to the
configuration screens where you can configure IPv4 or IPv6 multicast settings.
• Use the IPv4 Multicast Status screen (Section 24.3 on page 234) to view multicast group
information.
• Use the IGMP Snooping screen (Section 24.3.1 on page 235) to enable IGMP snooping to
forward group multicast traffic only to ports that are members of that group.
• Use the IPv6 Multicast Status screen (Section 24.4 on page 241) to view multicast group
information,
• Use the MLD Snooping-proxy screen (Section 24.4.1 on page 241) to enable the upstream port
to report group changes to a connected multicast router and forward MLD messages to other
upstream ports.
• Use the MVR screens (Section 24.5 on page 250) to create multicast VLANs and select the
receiver port(s) and a source port for each multicast VLAN.
24.1.2 What You Need to Know
Read on for concepts on Multicasting that can help you configure the screens in this chapter.
IP Multicast Addresses
In IPv4, a multicast address allows a device to send packets to a specific group of hosts (multicast
group) in a different subnetwork. A multicast IP address represents a traffic receiving group, not
individual receiving devices. IP addresses in the Class D range (224.0.0.0 to 239.255.255.255) are
used for IP multicasting. Certain IP multicast numbers are reserved by IANA for special purposes
(see the IANA website for more information).
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
230
Chapter 24 Multicast
IGMP Snooping
A Switch can passively snoop on IGMP packets transferred between IP multicast routers/switches
and IP multicast hosts to learn the IP multicast group membership. It checks IGMP packets passing
through it, picks out the group registration information, and configures multicasting accordingly.
IGMP snooping allows the Switch to learn multicast groups without you having to manually
configure them.
The Switch forwards multicast traffic destined for multicast groups (that it has learned from IGMP
snooping or that you have manually configured) to ports that are members of that group. IGMP
snooping generates no additional network traffic, allowing you to significantly reduce multicast
traffic passing through your Switch.
IGMP Snooping and VLANs
The Switch can perform IGMP snooping on up to 16 VLANs. You can configure the Switch to
automatically learn multicast group membership of any VLANs. The Switch then performs IGMP
snooping on the first 16 VLANs that send IGMP packets. This is referred to as auto mode.
Alternatively, you can specify the VLANs that IGMP snooping should be performed on. This is
referred to as fixed mode. In fixed mode the Switch does not learn multicast group membership of
any VLANs other than those explicitly added as an IGMP snooping VLAN.
MLD Snooping-proxy
MLD snooping-proxy is a ZyXEL-proprietary feature. IPv6 MLD proxy allows only one upstream
interface on a switch, while MLD snooping-proxy supports more than one upstream port on a
switch. The upstream port in MLD snooping-proxy can report group changes to a connected
multicast router and forward MLD messages to other upstream ports. This helps especially when
you want to have a network that uses STP to provide backup links between switches and also
performs MLD snooping and proxy functions. MLD snooping-proxy, like MLD proxy, can minimize
MLD control messages and allow better network performance.
In MLD snooping-proxy, if one upstream port is learned via snooping, all other upstream ports on
the same device will be added to the same group. If one upstream port requests to leave a group,
all other upstream ports on the same device will also be removed from the group.
In the following MLD snooping-proxy example, all connected upstream ports (1 ~7) are treated as
one interface. The connection between ports 8 and 9 is blocked by STP to break the loop. If there is
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide

one query from a router (X) or MLD Done or Report message from any upstream port, it will be
broadcast to all connected upstream ports.

MLD Messages
A multicast router or switch periodically sends general queries to MLD hosts to update the multicast
forwarding table. When an MLD host wants to join a multicast group, it sends an MLD Report
message for that address.
An MLD Done message is similar to an IGMP Leave message. When an MLD host wants to leave a
multicast group, it can send a Done message to the router or switch. If the leave mode is not set to
Immediate, the router or switch sends a group-specific query to the port on which the Done
message is received to determine if other devices connected to this port should remain in the
group.
MVR Overview
Multicast VLAN Registration (MVR) is designed for applications (such as Media-on-Demand (MoD))
that use multicast traffic across an Ethernet ring-based service provider network.
MVR allows one single multicast VLAN to be shared among different subscriber VLANs on the
network. While isolated in different subscriber VLANs, connected devices can subscribe to and
unsubscribe from the multicast stream in the multicast VLAN. This improves bandwidth utilization
with reduced multicast traffic in the subscriber VLANs and simplifies multicast group management.
MVR only responds to IGMP join and leave control messages from multicast groups that are
configured under MVR. Join and leave reports from other multicast groups are managed by IGMP
snooping.
The following figure shows a network example. The subscriber VLAN (1, 2 and 3) information is
hidden from the streaming media server, S. In addition, the multicast VLAN information is only
visible to the Switch and S.

Types of MVR Ports
In MVR, a source port is a port on the Switch that can send and receive multicast traffic in a
multicast VLAN while a receiver port can only receive multicast traffic. Once configured, the Switch
maintains a forwarding table that matches the multicast stream to the associated multicast group.
MVR Modes
You can set your Switch to operate in either dynamic or compatible mode.
In dynamic mode, the Switch sends IGMP leave and join reports to the other multicast devices
(such as multicast routers or servers) in the multicast VLAN. This allows the multicast devices to
update the multicast forwarding table to forward or not forward multicast traffic to the receiver
ports.
In compatible mode, the Switch does not send any IGMP reports. In this case, you must manually
configure the forwarding settings on the multicast devices in the multicast VLAN.
How MVR Works
The following figure shows a multicast television example where a subscriber device (such as a
computer) in VLAN 1 receives multicast traffic from the streaming media server, S, via the Switch.
Multiple subscriber devices can connect through a port configured as the receiver on the Switch.
When the subscriber selects a television channel, computer A sends an IGMP report to the Switch
to join the appropriate multicast group. If the IGMP report matches one of the configured MVR
multicast group addresses on the Switch, an entry is created in the forwarding table on the Switch.
This maps the subscriber VLAN to the list of forwarding destinations for the specified multicast
traffic.
When the subscriber changes the channel or turns off the computer, an IGMP leave message is sent
to the Switch to leave the multicast group. The Switch sends a query to VLAN 1 on the receiver port
(in this case, an uplink port on the Switch). If there is another subscriber device connected to this
port in the same subscriber VLAN, the receiving port will still be on the list of forwarding destination
for the multicast traffic. Otherwise, the Switch removes the receiver port from the forwarding table.

Reserved
Multicast Group
The IP address range of 224.0.0.0 to 224.0.0.255 are reserved for multicasting on the
local network only. For example, 224.0.0.1 is for all hosts on a local network segment and
224.0.0.9 is used to send RIP routing information to all RIP v2 routers on the same
network segment. A multicast router will not forward a packet with the destination IP
address within this range to other networks. See the IANA web site for more information.
The layer-2 multicast MAC addresses used by Cisco layer-2 protocols,
01:00:0C:CC:CC:CC and 01:00:0C:CC:CC:CD, are also included in this group.
Specify the action to perform when the Switch receives a frame with a reserved multicast

Immed. Leave
Select this option to set the Switch to remove this port from the multicast tree when an
IGMP version 2 leave message is received on this port.
Select this option if there is only one host connected to this port.
Normal Leave
Enter an IGMP normal leave timeout value (from 200 to 6,348,800) in miliseconds. Select
this option to have the Switch use this timeout to update the forwarding table for the port.
In normal leave mode, when the Switch receives an IGMP leave message from a host on a
port, it forwards the message to the multicast router. The multicast router then sends out
an IGMP Group-Specific Query (GSQ) message to determine whether other hosts
connected to the port should remain in the specific multicast group. The Switch forwards
the query message to all hosts connected to the port and waits for IGMP reports from
hosts to update the forwarding table.
This defines how many seconds the Switch waits for an IGMP report before removing an
IGMP snooping membership entry when an IGMP leave message is received on this port
from a host.
Fast Leave
Enter an IGMP fast leave timeout value (from 200 to 6,348,800) in miliseconds. Select
this option to have the Switch use this timeout to update the forwarding table for the port.
In fast leave mode, right after receiving an IGMP leave message from a host on a port,
the Switch itself sends out an IGMP Group-Specific Query (GSQ) message to determine
whether other hosts connected to the port should remain in the specific multicast group.
This helps speed up the leave process.
This defines how many seconds the Switch waits for an IGMP report before removing an
IGMP snooping membership entry when an IGMP leave message is received on this port
from a host.

24.5 General MVR Configuration
Multicast VLAN Registration (MVR) is designed for applications (such as Media-on-Demand (MoD))
that use multicast traffic across an Ethernet ring-based service provider network.
MVR allows one single multicast VLAN to be shared among different subscriber VLANs on the
network. While isolated in different subscriber VLANs, connected devices can subscribe to and
unsubscribe from the multicast stream in the multicast VLAN. This improves bandwidth utilization
with reduced multicast traffic in the subscriber VLANs and simplifies multicast group management.
Use the MVR screen to create multicast VLANs and select the receiver port(s) and a source port for
each multicast VLAN. Click Advanced Application > Multicast > MVR to display the screen as
shown next.
Note: You can create up to five multicast VLANs and up to 256 multicast rules on the
Switch.
Note: Your Switch automatically creates a static VLAN (with the same VID) when you
create a multicast VLAN in this screen.

25.1 AAA Overview
This chapter describes how to configure authentication, authorization and accounting settings on
the Switch.
Authentication is the process of determining who a user is and validating access to the Switch. The
Switch can authenticate users who try to log in based on user accounts configured on the Switch
itself. The Switch can also use an external authentication server to authenticate a large number of
users.
Authorization is the process of determining what a user is allowed to do. Different user accounts
may have higher or lower privilege levels associated with them. For example, user A may have the
right to create new login accounts on the Switch but user B cannot. The Switch can authorize users
based on user accounts configured on the Switch itself or it can use an external server to authorize
a large number of users.
Accounting is the process of recording what a user is doing. The Switch can use an external server
to track when users log in, log out, execute commands and so on. Accounting can also record
system related actions such as boot up and shut down times of the Switch.
The external servers that perform authentication, authorization and accounting functions are known
as AAA servers. The Switch supports RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service, see
RADIUS and TACACS+ on page 259) and TACACS+ (Terminal Access Controller Access-Control
System Plus, see RADIUS and TACACS+ on page 259) as external authentication and authorization
servers.

25.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the AAA screen (Section 25.2 on page 259) to display the links to the screens where you can
enable authentication and authorization or both of them on the Switch.
• use the RADIUS Server Setup screen (Section 25.3 on page 260) to configure your RADIUS
server settings.
• Use the TACACS+ Server Setup screen (Section 25.4 on page 262) to configure your TACACS+
authentication settings.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
258
Chapter 25 AAA
• Use the AAA Setup screen (Section 25.5 on page 263) to configure authentication, authorization
and accounting settings, such as the methods used to authenticate users accessing the Switch
and which database the Switch should use first.
25.1.2 What You Need to Know
Authentication is the process of determining who a user is and validating access to the Switch. The
Switch can authenticate users who try to log in based on user accounts configured on the Switch
itself. The Switch can also use an external authentication server to authenticate a large number of
users.
Authorization is the process of determining what a user is allowed to do. Different user accounts
may have higher or lower privilege levels associated with them. For example, user A may have the
right to create new login accounts on the Switch but user B cannot. The Switch can authorize users
based on user accounts configured on the Switch itself or it can use an external server to authorize
a large number of users.
Accounting is the process of recording what a user is doing. The Switch can use an external server
to track when users log in, log out, execute commands and so on. Accounting can also record
system related actions such as boot up and shut down times of the Switch.
Local User Accounts
By storing user profiles locally on the Switch, your Switch is able to authenticate and authorize
users without interacting with a network AAA server. However, there is a limit on the number of
users you may authenticate in this way (See Section 45.4 on page 450).
RADIUS and TACACS+
RADIUS and TACACS+ are security protocols used to authenticate users by means of an external
server instead of (or in addition to) an internal device user database that is limited to the memory
capacity of the device. In essence, RADIUS and TACACS+ authentication both allow you to validate
an unlimited number of users from a central location.
The following table describes some key differences between RADIUS and TACACS+.

25.6 Technical Reference
This section provides technical background information on the topics discussed in this chapter.
25.6.1 Vendor Specific Attribute
RFC 2865 standard specifies a method for sending vendor-specific information between a RADIUS
server and a network access device (for example, the Switch). A company can create Vendor
Specific Attributes (VSAs) to expand the functionality of a RADIUS server.
The Switch supports VSAs that allow you to perform the following actions based on user
authentication:
• Limit bandwidth on incoming or outgoing traffic for the port the user connects to.
• Assign account privilege levels (See the CLI Reference Guide for more information on account
privilege levels) for the authenticated user.
The VSAs are composed of the following:
• Vendor-ID: An identification number assigned to the company by the IANA (Internet Assigned
Numbers Authority). ZyXEL’s vendor ID is 890.
• Vendor-Type: A vendor specified attribute, identifying the setting you want to modify.
• Vendor-data: A value you want to assign to the setting.
Note: Refer to the documentation that comes with your RADIUS server on how to
configure VSAs for users authenticating via the RADIUS server.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide

Note: If you set the privilege level of a login account differently on the RADIUS server(s)
and the Switch, the user is assigned a privilege level from the database (RADIUS
or local) the Switch uses first for user authentication.
25.6.1.1 Tunnel Protocol Attribute
You can configure tunnel protocol attributes on the RADIUS server (refer to your RADIUS server
documentation) to assign a port on the Switch to a VLAN based on IEEE 802.1x authentication. The
port VLAN settings are fixed and untagged. This will also set the port’s VID. The following table
describes the values you need to configure. Note that the bolded values in the table are fixed values
as defined in RFC 3580.

IP Source Guard
26.1 IP Source Guard Overview
Use IPv4 and IPv6 source guard to filter unauthorized DHCP and ARP packets in your network.
IP source guard uses a binding table to distinguish between authorized and unauthorized DHCP and
ARP packets in your network. A binding contains these key attributes:
• MAC address
• VLAN ID
• IP address
• Port number
When the Switch receives a DHCP or ARP packet, it looks up the appropriate MAC address, VLAN ID,
IP address, and port number in the binding table. If there is a binding, the Switch forwards the
packet. If there is not a binding, the Switch discards the packet.
26.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the IP Source Guard screen (Section 26.2 on page 270) to display the links to the
configuration screens where you can configure IPv4 or IPv6 source guard settings.
• Use the IPv4 Source Guard Setup screen (Section 26.3 on page 271) to look at the current
bindings for DHCP snooping and ARP inspection.
• Use the IP Source Guard Static Binding screen (Section 26.4 on page 272) to manage static
bindings for DHCP snooping and ARP inspection.
• Use the DHCP Snooping screen (Section 26.5 on page 275) to look at various statistics about
the DHCP snooping database.
• Use this DHCP Snooping Configure screen (Section 26.6 on page 277) to enable DHCP
snooping on the Switch (not on specific VLAN), specify the VLAN where the default DHCP server
is located, and configure the DHCP snooping database.
• Use the DHCP Snooping Port Configure screen (Section 26.6.1 on page 279) to specify
whether ports are trusted or untrusted ports for DHCP snooping.
• Use the DHCP Snooping VLAN Configure screen (Section 26.6.2 on page 282) to enable DHCP
snooping on each VLAN and to specify whether or not the Switch adds DHCP relay agent option
82 information to DHCP requests that the Switch relays to a DHCP server for each VLAN.
• Use the DHCP Snooping VLAN Port Configure screen (Section 26.6.3 on page 283) to apply a
different DHCP option 82 profile to certain ports in a VLAN.
• Use the ARP Inspection Status screen (Section 26.7 on page 284) to look at the current list of
MAC address filters that were created because the Switch identified an unauthorized ARP packet.
• Use the ARP Inspection VLAN Status screen (Section 26.8 on page 285) to look at various
statistics about ARP packets in each VLAN.

configured IPv6 source guard policies to the ports you specify.
• Use the IPv6 Snooping Policy Setup screen (Section 26.16 on page 299) to dynamically create
an IPv6 source guard binding table using a DHCPv6 snooping policy. A DHCPv6 snooping policy
lets the Switch sniff DHCPv6 packets sent from a DHCPv6 server to a DHCPv6 client when it is
assigning an IPv6 address.
• Use the IPv6 Snooping VLAN Setup screen (Section 26.17 on page 300) to enable a DHCPv6
snooping policy on a specific VLAN interface.
• Use the IPv6 DHCP Trust Setup screen (Section 26.18 on page 301) to specify which ports are
trusted and untrusted for DHCP snooping.
26.1.2 What You Need to Know
The Switch builds the binding table by snooping DHCP packets (dynamic bindings) and from
information provided manually by administrators (static bindings).
IP source guard consists of the following features:
• Static bindings. Use this to create static bindings in the binding table.
• DHCP snooping. Use this to filter unauthorized DHCP packets on the network and to build the
binding table dynamically.
• ARP inspection. Use this to filter unauthorized ARP packets on the network.
If you want to use dynamic bindings to filter unauthorized ARP packets (typical implementation),
you have to enable DHCP snooping before you enable ARP inspection.

Syslog rate
DESCRIPTION
Enter the maximum number of syslog messages the Switch can send to the syslog
server in one batch. This number is expressed as a rate because the batch frequency
is determined by the Log Interval. You must configure the syslog server (Chapter 48
on page 471) to use this. Enter 0 if you do not want the Switch to send log messages
generated by ARP packets to the syslog server.
The relationship between Syslog rate and Log interval is illustrated in the following
examples:
•
•
Log interval
4 invalid ARP packets per
sends 4 syslog messages
6 invalid ARP packets per
sends 5 syslog messages
second, Syslog rate is 5, Log interval is 1: the Switch
every second.
second, Syslog rate is 5, Log interval is 2: the Switch

26.11 IPv6 Source Guard Overview
The purpose of IPv6 source guard is to distinguish between authorized and unauthorized users by
using a binding table that validates the source of IPv6 traffic. The binding table can be manually
created or be learned through Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol version 6 snooping (DHCPv6
snooping). IPv6 source guard can deny IPv6 traffic from an unknown source. The IPv6 source guard
binding table includes:
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
292
Chapter 26 IP Source Guard
• IPv6 address
• IPv6 prefix
• VLAN ID
• Port number
• MAC address
Enable IPv6 source guard on a port for the Switch to check incoming IPv6 packets on that port. A
packet is allowed when it matches any entry in the IPSG binding table. If a user tries to send IPv6
packets to the Switch that do not match an entry in the IPSG binding table, the Switch will drop
these packets. The Switch forwards matching traffic normally.
26.12 IPv6 Source Binding Status
Use this screen to look at the current IPv6 dynamic and static bindings and to remove dynamic
bindings based on IPv6 address and/or IPv6 prefix. Bindings are used to distinguish between
authorized and unauthorized packets in the network. The Switch learns the bindings by snooping
DHCP packets (dynamic bindings) and from information provided manually by administrators (static
bindings). To open this screen, click Advanced Application > IP Source Guard > IPv6 Source
Binding Status.

Use DHCP snooping to filter unauthorized DHCP packets on the network and to build the binding
table dynamically. This can prevent clients from getting IP addresses from unauthorized DHCP
servers.
26.19.1.1 Trusted vs. Untrusted Ports
Every port is either a trusted port or an untrusted port for DHCP snooping. This setting is
independent of the trusted/untrusted setting for ARP inspection. You can also specify the maximum
number for DHCP packets that each port (trusted or untrusted) can receive each second.
Trusted ports are connected to DHCP servers or other switches. The Switch discards DHCP packets
from trusted ports only if the rate at which DHCP packets arrive is too high. The Switch learns
dynamic bindings from trusted ports.
Note: If DHCP is enabled and there are no trusted ports, DHCP requests will not succeed.
Untrusted ports are connected to subscribers. The Switch discards DHCP packets from untrusted
ports in the following situations:
• The packet is a DHCP server packet (for example, OFFER, ACK, or NACK).
• The source MAC address and source IP address in the packet do not match any of the current
bindings.
• The packet is a RELEASE or DECLINE packet, and the source MAC address and source port do not
match any of the current bindings.
• The rate at which DHCP packets arrive is too high.
26.19.1.2 DHCP Snooping Database
The Switch stores the binding table in volatile memory. If the Switch restarts, it loads static
bindings from permanent memory but loses the dynamic bindings, in which case the devices in the
network have to send DHCP requests again. As a result, it is recommended you configure the DHCP
snooping database.
The DHCP snooping database maintains the dynamic bindings for DHCP snooping and ARP
inspection in a file on an external TFTP server. If you set up the DHCP snooping database, the
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
303
Chapter 26 IP Source Guard
Switch can reload the dynamic bindings from the DHCP snooping database after the Switch
restarts.
You can configure the name and location of the file on the external TFTP server. The file has the
following format:
Figure 225 DHCP Snooping Database File Format
<initial-checksum>
TYPE DHCP-SNOOPING
VERSION 1
BEGIN
<binding-1> <checksum-1>
<binding-2> <checksum-1-2>
...
...
<binding-n> <checksum-1-2-..-n>
END
The <initial-checksum> helps distinguish between the bindings in the latest update and the
bindings from previous updates. Each binding consists of 72 bytes, a space, and another checksum
that is used to validate the binding when it is read. If the calculated checksum is not equal to the
checksum in the file, that binding and all others after it are ignored.
26.19.1.3 DHCP Relay Option 82 Information
The Switch can add information to DHCP requests that it does not discard. This provides the DHCP
server more information about the source of the requests. The Switch can add the following
information:
• Slot ID (1 byte), port ID (1 byte), and source VLAN ID (2 bytes)
• System name (up to 32 bytes)
This information is stored in an Agent Information field in the option 82 field of the DHCP headers of
client DHCP request frames. See Chapter 42 on page 416 for more information about DHCP relay
option 82.
When the DHCP server responds, the Switch removes the information in the Agent Information field
before forwarding the response to the original source.
You can configure this setting for each source VLAN. This setting is independent of the DHCP relay
settings (Chapter 42 on page 416).
26.19.1.4 Configuring DHCP Snooping
Follow these steps to configure DHCP snooping on the Switch.
1
Enable DHCP snooping on the Switch.
2
Enable DHCP snooping on each VLAN, and configure DHCP relay option 82.
3
Configure trusted and untrusted ports, and specify the maximum number of DHCP packets that
each port can receive per second.
4
Configure static bindings.

26.19.2 ARP Inspection Overview
Use ARP inspection to filter unauthorized ARP packets on the network. This can prevent many kinds
of man-in-the-middle attacks, such as the one in the following example.
Figure 226 Example: Man-in-the-middle Attack
A
B
X
In this example, computer B tries to establish a connection with computer A. Computer X is in the
same broadcast domain as computer A and intercepts the ARP request for computer A. Then,
computer X does the following things:
• It pretends to be computer A and responds to computer B.
• It pretends to be computer B and sends a message to computer A.
As a result, all the communication between computer A and computer B passes through computer
X. Computer X can read and alter the information passed between them.
26.19.2.1 ARP Inspection and MAC Address Filters
When the Switch identifies an unauthorized ARP packet, it automatically creates a MAC address
filter to block traffic from the source MAC address and source VLAN ID of the unauthorized ARP
packet. You can configure how long the MAC address filter remains in the Switch.
These MAC address filters are different than regular MAC address filters (Chapter 12 on page 143).
• They are stored only in volatile memory.
• They do not use the same space in memory that regular MAC address filters use.
• They appear only in the ARP Inspection screens and commands, not in the MAC Address
Filter screens and commands.
26.19.2.2 Trusted vs. Untrusted Ports
Every port is either a trusted port or an untrusted port for ARP inspection. This setting is
independent of the trusted/untrusted setting for DHCP snooping. You can also specify the maximum
rate at which the Switch receives ARP packets on untrusted ports.
The Switch does not discard ARP packets on trusted ports for any reason.
The Switch discards ARP packets on untrusted ports in the following situations:
• The sender’s information in the ARP packet does not match any of the current bindings.
• The rate at which ARP packets arrive is too high.

Chapter 26 IP Source Guard
26.19.2.3 Syslog
The Switch can send syslog messages to the specified syslog server (Chapter 48 on page 471)
when it forwards or discards ARP packets. The Switch can consolidate log messages and send log
messages in batches to make this mechanism more efficient.
26.19.2.4 Configuring ARP Inspection
Follow these steps to configure ARP inspection on the Switch.
1
Configure DHCP snooping. See Section 26.19.1.4 on page 304.
Note: It is recommended you enable DHCP snooping at least one day before you enable
ARP inspection so that the Switch has enough time to build the binding table.
2
Enable ARP inspection on each VLAN.
3
Configure trusted and untrusted ports, and specify the maximum number of ARP packets that each
port can receive per second.

Loop Guard
27.1 Loop Guard Overview
This chapter shows you how to configure the Switch to guard against loops on the edge of your
network.
Loop guard allows you to configure the Switch to shut down a port if it detects that packets sent out
on that port loop back to the Switch. While you can use Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) to prevent
loops in the core of your network. STP cannot prevent loops that occur on the edge of your
network.
Figure 227 Loop Guard vs. STP
STP
Loop Guard
Refer to Section 27.1.2 on page 307 for more information.
27.1.1 What You Can Do
Use the Loop Guard screen (Section 27.2 on page 309) to enable loop guard on the Switch and in
specific ports.
27.1.2 What You Need to Know
Loop guard is designed to handle loop problems on the edge of your network. This can occur when
a port is connected to a Switch that is in a loop state. Loop state occurs as a result of human error.
It happens when two ports on a switch are connected with the same cable. When a switch in loop
state sends out broadcast messages the messages loop back to the switch and are re-broadcast
again and again causing a broadcast storm.
If a switch (not in loop state) connects to a switch in loop state, then it will be affected by the
switch in loop state in the following way:
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
307
Chapter 27 Loop Guard
• It will receive broadcast messages sent out from the switch in loop state.
• It will receive its own broadcast messages that it sends out as they loop back. It will then rebroadcast those messages again.
The following figure shows port N on switch A connected to switch B. Switch B is in loop state.
When broadcast or multicast packets leave port N and reach switch B, they are sent back to port N
on A as they are rebroadcast from B.
Figure 228 Switch in Loop State
B
A
N
The loop guard feature checks to see if a loop guard enabled port is connected to a switch in loop
state. This is accomplished by periodically sending a probe packet and seeing if the packet returns
on the same port. If this is the case, the Switch will shut down the port connected to the switch in
loop state.
The following figure shows a loop guard enabled port N on switch A sending a probe packet P to
switch B. Since switch B is in loop state, the probe packet P returns to port N on A. The Switch
then shuts down port N to ensure that the rest of the network is not affected by the switch in loop
state.
Figure 229 Loop Guard - Probe Packet
B
A
P
P
N
The Switch also shuts down port N if the probe packet returns to switch A on any other port. In
other words loop guard also protects against standard network loops. The following figure
illustrates three switches forming a loop. A sample path of the loop guard probe packet is also
shown. In this example, the probe packet is sent from port N and returns on another port. As long
as loop guard is enabled on port N. The Switch will shut down port N if it detects that the probe
packet has returned to the Switch.

Layer 2 Protocol Tunneling
28.1 Layer 2 Protocol Tunneling Overview
This chapter shows you how to configure layer 2 protocol tunneling on the Switch.
28.1.1 What You Can Do
Use the Layer 2 Protocol Tunnel screen (Section 28.2 on page 312) to enable layer 2 protocol
tunneling on the Switch and specify a MAC address with which the Switch uses to encapsulate the
layer 2 protocol packets by replacing the destination MAC address in the packets.
28.1.2 What You Need to Know
Layer 2 protocol tunneling (L2PT) is used on the service provider's edge devices.
L2PT allows edge switches (1 and 2 in the following figure) to tunnel layer 2 STP (Spanning Tree
Protocol), CDP (Cisco Discovery Protocol) and VTP (VLAN Trunking Protocol) packets between
customer switches (A, B and C in the following figure) connected through the service provider’s
network. The edge switch encapsulates layer 2 protocol packets with a specific MAC address before
sending them across the service provider’s network to other edge switches.

In the following example, if you enable L2PT for STP, you can have switches A, B, C and D in the
same spanning tree, even though switch A is not directly connected to switches B, C and D.
Topology change information can be propagated throughout the service provider’s network.
To emulate a point-to-point topology between two customer switches at different sites, such as A
and B, you can enable protocol tunneling on edge switches 1 and 2 for PAgP (Port Aggregation
Protocol), LACP or UDLD (UniDirectional Link Detection).

28.1.2.1 Layer 2 Protocol Tunneling Mode
Each port can have two layer 2 protocol tunneling modes, Access and Tunnel.
• The Access port is an ingress port on the service provider's edge device (1 or 2 in Figure 234 on
page 312) and connected to a customer switch (A or B). Incoming layer 2 protocol packets
received on an access port are encapsulated and forwarded to the tunnel ports.
• The Tunnel port is an egress port at the edge of the service provider's network and connected to
another service provider’s switch. Incoming encapsulated layer 2 protocol packets received on a
tunnel port are decapsulated and sent to an access port.

Point to Point
The Switch supports PAgP (Port Aggregation Protocol), LACP (Link Aggregation Control
Protocol) and UDLD (UniDirectional Link Detection) tunneling for a point-to-point topology.
Both PAgP and UDLD are Cisco’s proprietary data link layer protocols. PAgP is similar to
LACP and used to set up a logical aggregation of Ethernet ports automatically. UDLD is to
determine the link’s physical status and detect a unidirectional link.
PAGP

and build a logical port aggregation.
LACP
Select this option to have the Switch send LACP packets to a peer to dynamically creates
and manages trunk groups.
UDLD
Select this option to have the Switch send UDLD packets to a peer’s port it connected to
monitor the physical status of a link.
Mode
Select Access to have the Switch encapsulate the incoming layer 2 protocol packets and
forward them to the tunnel port(s). Select Access for ingress ports at the edge of the
service provider's network.
Note: You can enable L2PT services for STP, LACP, VTP, CDP, UDLD, and PAGP on the
access port(s) only.
Select Tunnel for egress ports at the edge of the service provider's network. The Switch
decapsulates the encapsulated layer 2 protocol packets received on a tunnel port by
changing the destination MAC address to the original one, and then forward them to an
access port. If the service(s) is not enabled on an access port, the protocol packets are
dropped.

sFlow
This chapter shows you how to configure sFlow to have the Switch monitor traffic in a network and
send information to an sFlow collector for analysis.
29.1 sFlow Overview
sFlow (RFC 3176) is a standard technology for monitoring switched networks. An sFlow agent
embedded on a switch or router gets sample data and packet statistics from traffic forwarded
through its ports. The sFlow agent then creates sFlow data and sends it to an sFlow collector. The
sFlow collector is a server that collects and analyzes sFlow datagram. An sFlow datagram includes
packet header, input and output interface, sampling process parameters and forwarding
information.
sFlow minimizes impact on CPU load of the Switch as it analyzes sample data only. sFlow can
continuously monitor network traffic and create reports for network performance analysis and
troubleshooting. For example, you can use it to know which IP address or which type of traffic
caused network congestion.

PPPoE
30.1 PPPoE Intermediate Agent Overview
This chapter describes how the Switch gives a PPPoE termination server additional information that
the server can use to identify and authenticate a PPPoE client.
A PPPoE Intermediate Agent (PPPoE IA) is deployed between a PPPoE server and PPPoE clients. It
helps the PPPoE server identify and authenticate clients by adding subscriber line specific
information to PPPoE discovery packets from clients on a per-port or per-port-per-VLAN basis
before forwarding them to the PPPoE server.
PPPoE Client
PPPoE Server
PPPoE IA
30.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the PPPoE screen (Section 30.2 on page 323) to display the main PPPoE screen.
• Use the Intermediate Agent screen (Section 30.3 on page 324) to enable the PPPoE
Intermediate Agent on the Switch.
• Use the PPPoE IA Per-Port screen (Section 30.3.1 on page 325) to set the port state and
configure PPPoE intermediate agent sub-options on a per-port basis.
• Use the PPPoE IA Per-Port Per-VLAN screen (Section 30.3.2 on page 327) to configure PPPoE
IA settings that apply to a specific VLAN on a port.
• Use the PPPoE IA for VLAN (Section 30.3.3 on page 328) to enable the PPPoE Intermediate
Agent on a VLAN.
30.1.2 What You Need to Know
Read on for concepts on ARP that can help you configure the screen in this chapter.
30.1.2.1 PPPoE Intermediate Agent Tag Format
If the PPPoE Intermediate Agent is enabled, the Switch adds a vendor-specific tag to PADI (PPPoE
Active Discovery Initialization) and PADR (PPPoE Active Discovery Request) packets from PPPoE
clients. This tag is defined in RFC 2516 and has the following format for this feature.

Tag_Type
Tag_Len
Value
i1
(0x0105)
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
321
i2
Chapter 30 PPPoE
The Tag_Type is 0x0105 for vendor-specific tags, as defined in RFC 2516. The Tag_Len indicates the
length of Value, i1 and i2. The Value is the 32-bit number 0x00000DE9, which stands for the “ADSL
Forum” IANA entry. i1 and i2 are PPPoE intermediate agent sub-options, which contain additional
information about the PPPoE client.
30.1.2.2 Sub-Option Format
There are two types of sub-option: “Agent Circuit ID Sub-option” and “Agent Remote ID Suboption”. They have the following formats.

(1 byte)
(63 bytes)
The 1 in the first field identifies this as an Agent Circuit ID sub-option and 2 identifies this as an
Agent Remote ID sub-option. The next field specifies the length of the field. The Switch takes the
Circuit ID string you manually configure for a VLAN on a port as the highest priority and the Circuit
ID string for a port as the second priority. In addition, the Switch puts the PPPoE client’s MAC
address into the Agent Remote ID Sub-option if you do not specify any user-defined string.
Flexible Circuit ID Syntax with Identifier String and Variables
If you do not configure a Circuit ID string for a VLAN on a specific port or for a specific port, the
Switch adds the user-defined identifier string and variables into the Agent Circuit ID Sub-option.
The variables can be the slot ID of the PPPoE client, the port number of the PPPoE client and/or the
VLAN ID on the PPPoE packet.
The identifier-string, slot ID, port number and VLAN ID are separated from each other by a pound
key (#), semi-colon (;), period (.), comma (,), forward slash (/) or space. An Agent Circuit ID Suboption example is “Switch/07/0123” and indicates the PPPoE packets come from a PPPoE client
which is connected to the Switch’s port 7 and belong to VLAN 123.

30.1.2.3 Port State
Every port is either a trusted port or an untrusted port for the PPPoE intermediate agent. This
setting is independent of the trusted/untrusted setting for DHCP snooping or ARP inspection. You
can also specify the agent sub-options (circuit ID and remote ID) that the Switch adds to PADI and
PADR packets from PPPoE clients.
Trusted ports are connected to PPPoE servers.
• If a PADO (PPPoE Active Discovery Offer), PADS (PPPoE Active Discovery Session-confirmation),
or PADT (PPPoE Active Discovery Terminate) packet is sent from a PPPoE server and received on
a trusted port, the Switch forwards it to all other ports.
• If a PADI or PADR packet is sent from a PPPoE client but received on a trusted port, the Switch
forwards it to other trusted port(s).
Note: The Switch will drop all PPPoE discovery packets if you enable the PPPoE
intermediate agent and there are no trusted ports.
Untrusted ports are connected to subscribers.
• If a PADI, PADR, or PADT packet is sent from a PPPoE client and received on an untrusted port,
the Switch adds a vendor-specific tag to the packet and then forwards it to the trusted port(s).
• The Switch discards PADO and PADS packets which are sent from a PPPoE server but received on
an untrusted port.

31.1 Error Disable Overview
This chapter shows you how to configure the rate limit for control packets on a port, and set the
Switch to take an action (such as to shut down a port or stop sending packets) on a port when the
Switch detects a pre-configured error. It also shows you how to configure the Switch to
automatically undo the action after the error is gone.
31.1.1 CPU Protection Overview
Switches exchange protocol control packets in a network to get the latest networking information.
If a switch receives large numbers of control packets, such as ARP, BPDU or IGMP packets, which
are to be processed by the CPU, the CPU may become overloaded and be unable to handle regular
tasks properly.
The CPU protection feature allows you to limit the rate of ARP, BPDU and IGMP packets to be
delivered to the CPU on a port. This enhances the CPU efficiency and protects against potential DoS
attacks or errors from other network(s). You then can choose to drop control packets that exceed
the specified rate limit or disable a port on which the packets are received.
31.1.2 Error-Disable Recovery Overview
Some features, such as loop guard or CPU protection, allow the Switch to shut down a port or
discard specific packets on a port when an error is detected on the port. For example, if the Switch
detects that packets sent out the port(s) loop back to the Switch, the Switch can shut down the
port(s) automatically. After that, you need to enable the port(s) or allow the packets on a port
manually via the web configurator or the commands. With error-disable recovery, you can set the
disabled port(s) to become active or start receiving the packets again after the time interval you
specify.
31.1.3 What You Can Do
• Use the Errdisable Status screen (Section 31.3 on page 331) to view whether the Switch
detected that control packets exceeded the rate limit configured for a port or a port is disabled
according to the feature requirements and what action you configure, and related information.
• Use the CPU Protection screen (Section 31.4 on page 334) to limit the maximum number of
control packets (ARP, BPDU and/or IGMP) that the Switch can receive or transmit on a port.
• Use the Errdisable Detect screen (Section 31.5 on page 337) to have the Switch detect
whether the control packets exceed the rate limit configured for a port and configure the action
to take once the limit is exceeded.
• Use the Errdisable Recovery screen (Section 31.6 on page 337) to set the Switch to
automatically undo an action after the error is gone.

MAC Pinning
This chapter shows you how to configure MAC pinning on the Switch.
32.1 MAC Pinning Overview
When the Switch obtains a connected device’s MAC address, it adds an entry in the MAC address
forwarding table and uses the table to determine how to forward frames. In addition to the source
MAC address of a received frame, the Switch also learns the VLAN to which the device belongs and
the port on which the frame is received. If the Switch learns the same MAC address and same VLAN
ID on another port, it updates the MAC address table immediately.
MAC pinning allows you to set a port or multiple ports to have priority over other ports in MAC
address learning. That means when a MAC address (and VLAN ID) is learned on a MAC-pinningenabled port, the MAC address will not be learned on any other port until the aging time for the
dynamically learned MAC address in the table expires.
This helps enhance security. For example, when an attacker (A) sends packets to all connected
clients by spoofing the source MAC address of a server (B) connected to one of the Switch’s ports,
on which MAC pinning is enabled, the responses from clients will still be forwarded to the server
according to the Switch’s MAC forwarding table.

Private VLAN
This chapter shows you how to configure the Switch to prevent communications between
ports in a VLAN.
33.1 Private VLAN Overview
Private VLAN allows you to do port isolation within a VLAN in a simple way. You specify which
port(s) in a VLAN is not isolated by adding it to the promiscuous port list. The Switch automatically
adds other ports in this VLAN to the isolated port list and blocks traffic between the isolated ports.
A promiscuous port can communicate with any port in the same VLAN. An isolated port can
communicate with the promiscuous port(s) only.
Note: You can have up to one private VLAN rule for each VLAN.

VLAN 123
Isolated ports: 2 ~ 6

Note: Make sure you keep at least one port in the promiscuous port list for a VLAN with
private VLAN enabled. Otherwise, this VLAN is blocked from the whole network.

Green Ethernet
This chapter shows you how to configure the Switch to reduce the power consumed by switch ports.
34.1 Green Ethernet Overview
Green Ethernet reduces switch port power consumption in the following ways.
IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE)
If EEE is enabled, both sides of a link support EEE and there is no traffic, the port enters Low Power
Idle (LPI) mode. LPI mode turns off some functions of the physical layer (becomes quiet) to save
power. Periodically the port transmits a REFRESH signal to allow the link partner to keep the link
alive. When there is traffic to be sent, a WAKE signal is sent to the link partner to return the link to
active mode.
Auto Power Down
Auto Power Down turns off almost all functions of the port’s physical layer functions when the link
is down, so the port only uses power to check for a link up pulse from the link partner. After the link
up pulse is detected, the port wakes up from Auto Power Down and operates normally.
Short Reach
Traditional Ethernet transmits all data with enough power to reach the maximum cable length.
Shorter cables lose less power, so Short Reach saves power by adjusting the transmit power of
each port according to the length of cable attached to that port.
34.2 Configuring Green Ethernet
Click Advanced Application > Green Ethernet in the navigation panel to display the screen as
shown.
Note: EEE, Auto Power Down and Short Reach are not supported on an uplink port.

Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP)
35.1 LLDP Overview
The LLDP (Link Layer Discovery Protocol) is a layer 2 protocol. It allows a network device to
advertise its identity and capabilities on the local network. It also allows the device to maintain and
store information from adjacent devices which are directly connected to the network device. This
helps an administrator discover network changes and perform necessary network reconfiguration
and management. The device information is encapsulated in the LLDPDUs (LLDP data units) in the
form of TLV (Type, Length, Value). Device information carried in the received LLDPDUs is stored in
the standard MIB.
The Switch supports these basic management TLVs.
• End of LLDPDU (mandatory)
• Chassis ID (mandatory)
• Port ID (mandatory)
• Time to Live (mandatory)
• Port Description (optional)
• System Name (optional)
• System Description (optional)
• System Capabilities (optional)
• Management Address (optional)
The Switch also supports the IEEE 802.1 and IEEE 802.3 organizationally-specific TLVs.
IEEE 802.1 specific TLVs:
• Port VLAN ID TLV (optional)
• Port and Protocol VLAN ID TLV (optional)
IEEE 802.3 specific TLVs:
• MAC/PHY Configuration/Status TLV (optional)
• Power via MDI TLV (optional, For PoE models only)
• Link Aggregation TLV (optional)
• Maximum Frame Size TLV (optional)
The optional TLVs are inserted between the Time To Live TLV and the End of LLDPDU TLV.
The next figure demonstrates that the network devices Switches and Routers (S and R) transmit
and receive device information via LLDPDU and the network manager can query the information
using Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

Chapter 35 Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP)
Figure 262 LLDP Overview
35.2 LLDP-MED Overview
LLDP-MED (Link Layer Discovery Protocol for Media Endpoint Devices) is an extension to the
standard LLDP developed by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR-41.4
subcommittee which defines the enhanced discovery capabilities, such as VoIP applications, to
enable network administrators manage their network topology application more efficiently. Unlike
the traditional LLDP, which has some limitations when handling multiple application devices, the
LLDP-MED offers display of accurate physical topology, interoperability of devices, and easy trouble
shooting for misconfigured IP addresses. There are three classes of endpoint devices that the LLDPMED supports:
Class I: IP Communications Controllers or other communication related servers
Class II: Voice Gateways, Conference Bridges or Media Servers
Class III: IP-Phones, PC-based Softphones, End user Communication Appliances supporting IP
Media
The following figure shows that with the LLDP-MED, network connectivity devices (NCD) like
Switches and Routers will transmit LLDP TLV to endpoint device (ED) like IP Phone first (1), to get
its device type and capabilities information, then it will receive that information in LLDP-MED TLV
back from endpoint devices (2), after that the network connectivity devices will transmit LLDP-MED
TLV (3) to provision the endpoint device to such that the endpoint device’s network policy and
location identification information is updated. Since LLDPDU updates status and configuration
information periodically, network managers may check the result of provision via remote status.
The remote status is updated by receiving LLDP-MED TLVs from endpoint devices.

Anti-Arpscan
36.1 Anti-Arpscan Overview
Address Resolution Protocol (ARP), RFC 826, is a protocol used to convert a network-layer IP
address to a link-layer MAC address. ARP scan is used to scan the network of a certain interface for
alive hosts. It shows the IP address and MAC addresses of all hosts found. Hackers could use ARP
scan to find targets in your network. Anti-arpscan is used to detect unusual ARP scan activity and
block suspicious hosts or ports.
Unusual ARP scan activity is determined by port and host thresholds that you set. A port threshold
is determined by the number of packets received per second on the port. If the received packet rate
is over the threshold, then the port is put into an Err-Disable state. You can recover the normal
state of the port manually if this happens and after you identify the cause of the problem.
A host threshold is determined by the number of ARP-request packets received per second. There is
a global threshold rate for all hosts. If the rate of a host is over the threshold, then that host is
blocked by using a MAC address filter. A blocked host is released automatically after the MAC aging
time expires.
Note: A port-based threshold must be larger than the host-based threshold or the hostbased threshold will not work.
36.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the Anti-Arpscan Status screen (Section 36.2 on page 382) to see what ports are trusted
and are forwarding traffic or are disabled.
• Use the Anti-Arpscan Host Status screen (Section 36.3 on page 383) to view blocked hosts
and clear selected ones.
• Use the Anti-Arpscan Trust Host screen (Section 36.4 on page 384) to create or remove
trusted hosts identified by IP address and subnet mask. Anti-arpscan is not performed on
trusted hosts.
• Use this Anti-Arpscan Configure screen (Section 36.5 on page 384) to enable anti-arpscan, set
port and host thresholds as well as configure ports to be trusted or untrusted.
36.1.2 What You Need to Know
• You should set an uplink port as a trusted port before enabling Anti-arpscan so as to prevent
the port from being shutdown due to receiving too many ARP messages.
• When a port is configured as a trusted port, Anti-arpscan is not performed on the port. Both
host and port thresholds are ignored for trusted ports. If the received ARP packet rate on a port
or the received ARP-requests from a host exceed the thresholds, the trusted port will not be
closed.
• If a port on the Switch is closed by Anti-arpscan, and you want to recover it, then do one of the
following:
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
381
Chapter 36 Anti-Arpscan
• Go to Basic Setting > Port Setup. Clear Active and click Apply. Then select Active and
click Apply again.
• Go to Application > Errdiable > Errdisable Recovery and set the interval for Antiarpscan. After the interval expires, the closed port(s) will become active and start receiving
packets again.
• Use the command port no inactive.
• Refer to the port logs to see when a port was closed.

BPDU Guard
37.1 BPDU Guard Overview
A BPDU (Bridge Protocol Data Units) is a data frame that contains information about STP. STPaware switches exchange BPDUs periodically.
The BPDU guard feature allows you to prevent any new STP-aware switch from connecting to an
existing network and causing STP topology changes in the network. If there is any BPDU detected
on the port(s) on which BPDU guard is enabled, the Switch disables the port(s) automatically. You
can then enable the port(s) manually in the Basic Setting > Port Setup screen (Section 8.7 on
page 80) or use the Errdisable Recovery screen (see Section 31.6 on page 337) to have the
port(s) become active after a certain time interval.
37.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the BPDU Guard Status screen (Section 37.2 on page 387) to view the BPDU guard status.
• Use the BPDU Guard Configuration screen (Section 37.3 on page 389) to enable BPDU guard

OAM
38.1 OAM Overview
Link layer Ethernet OAM (Operations, Administration and Maintenance) as described in IEEE
802.3ah is a link monitoring protocol. It utilizes OAM Protocol Data Units or OAM PDUs to transmit
link status information between directly connected Ethernet devices. Both devices must support
IEEE 802.3ah. Because link layer Ethernet OAM operates at layer two of the OSI (Open Systems
Interconnection Basic Reference) model, neither IP or SNMP are necessary to monitor or
troubleshoot network connection problems.
The Switch supports the following IEEE 802.3ah features:
• Discovery - this identifies the devices on each end of the Ethernet link and their OAM
configuration.
• Remote Loopback - this can initiate a loopback test between Ethernet devices.
38.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the OAM Status screen (Section 38.2 on page 391) to view the configuration of ports on
which Ethernet OAM is enabled.
• Use the OAM Configuration screen (Section 38.3 on page 397) to enable Ethernet OAM on the
Switch.
• Use the OAM Remote Loopback screen (Section 38.4 on page 399) to perform remoteloopback tests.

This field displays the OAM mode. The device in active mode (typically the service
provider's device) controls the device in passive mode (typically the subscriber's device).
Active: The port initiates OAM discovery; sends information PDUs; and may send event
notification PDUs, variable request/response PDUs, or loopback control PDUs.
Passive: The port waits for the remote device to initiate OAM discovery; sends
information PDUs; may send event notification PDUs; and may respond to variable
request PDUs or loopback control PDUs.
The Switch might not support some types of PDUs, as indicated in the fields below.
Unidirectional
This field indicates whether or not the port can send information PDUs to transmit fault
information when the receive path is non-operational.
Remote
loopback
This field indicates whether or not the port can use loopback control PDUs to put the
remote device into loopback mode.
Link events
This field indicates whether or not the port can interpret link events, such as link fault and
dying gasp. Link events are sent in event notification PDUs and indicate when the number
of errors in a given interval (time, number of frames, number of symbols, or number of
errored frame seconds) exceeds a specified threshold. Organizations may create
organization-specific link event TLVs as well.
Variable
retrieval
This field indicates whether or not the port can respond to requests for more information,
such as requests for Ethernet counters and statistics, about link events.
Max. OAMPDU
size
This field displays the maximum size of PDU for receipt and delivery.

ZULD
39.1 ZULD Overview
A unidirectional link is a connection where the link is up on both ends, but only one end can receive
packets. This may happen if OAM was initially enabled but then disabled, there are misconfigured
transmitting or receiving lines or the hardware is malfunctioning. ZyXEL Unidirectional Link
Detection (ZULD) is a layer-2 protocol that can detect and disable these physical one-way links
before they cause loops or communication malfunction.
In the figure below, S1 - A is a bidirectional link as both ends can send packets to each other. S1-B
is unidirectional as B cannot send packets to S1 (although the S1-B link is up). Similarly, S2-S1 is
unidirectional as S1 cannot send packets to S2 (although the S1-S2 link is up).
Figure 302 ZULD Overview
39.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the ZULD Status screen (Section 39.2 on page 402) to see details on ZULD.
• Use the ZULD Configuration screen (Section 39.3 on page 404) to enable ZULD on a port,
configure a mode and set the probe time.
39.1.2 What You Need to Know
• ZULD must be enabled on the Switch and the port(s) in order to detect unidirectional links by
monitoring OAMPDUs.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
401
Chapter 39 ZULD
• Ports advertise their unidirectional link detection capability using OAMPDUs, so all connected
devices must support OAM as well as ZULD. You need to enable OAM on the Switch by going to
Advanced Application > OAM > Configuration and selecting Active. OAM must be enabled
on other connected devices too. If OAM is not enabled initially, ZULD will not work.
• If OAM is enabled initially and later disabled on one end of a link, the link will be unidirectional as
that end cannot send OAMPDUs.
• OAM discovery, the sending of OAMPDUs to other ports, is initiated by an active port.
• When ZULD detects a unidirectional link, it sends a syslog and SNMP trap and may shut down
the affected port (Aggresssive Mode).
• If a port on the Switch is shut down by ZULD, and you want to recover it, then do one of the
following:
• Go to Basic Setting > Port Setup. Clear Active and click Apply. Then select Active and
click Apply again.
• Go to Advanced Application > Errdiable > Errdisable Recovery and set the interval for
ZULD. After the interval expires, the closed port(s) will become active and start receiving
packets again.
• Use the command port no inactive.
• Refer to the ZULD logs to see when a unidirectional link is detected and when it is recovered to a
bidirectional link.

Mode
This field indicates what ZULD will do when a unidirectional link is detected. In Normal
mode, ZULD only sends a syslog and trap when it detects a unidirectional link. In
Aggressive mode, ZULD shuts down the port (puts it into an ErrDisable state) as well
as sends a syslog and trap when it detects a unidirectional link.
Probe Time
Probe time is the length of time that ZULD waits before declaring that a link is
unidirectional. When the probe time expires, and one port (either on the Switch or the
connected device) still has not received an OAMPDU, then ZULD declares that the link is
unidirectional.
Link State
This field shows the following link states:
•
•
•
•
•
Linkdown: This is an initialization state, where the port is not yet up.
Probe: This indicates that ZULD is discovering the connected device on this link.
Bidirectional: Traffic sent by the Switch is received by the connected device on this
link, and traffic from the connected device on this link is received by the Switch.
Unidirectional: The state of the link between the port and its connected port cannot
be determined either because no ZULD message was received, or one port is not
capable of sending traffic.
Shutdown: The port has been shut down because its link with the connected device
is unidirectional and ZULD is in Aggressive mode.

Static Route
40.1 Static Routing Overview
This chapter shows you how to configure static routes.
The Switch uses IP for communication with management computers, for example using HTTP,
Telnet, SSH, or SNMP. Use IP static routes to have the Switch respond to remote management
stations that are not reachable through the default gateway. The Switch can also use static routes
to send data to a server or device that is not reachable through the default gateway, for example
when sending SNMP traps or using ping to test IP connectivity.
This figure shows a Telnet session coming in from network N1. The Switch sends reply traffic to
default gateway R1 which routes it back to the manager’s computer. The Switch needs a static
route to tell it to use router R2 to send traffic to an SNMP trap server on network N2.

Differentiated Services
41.1 DiffServ Overview
This chapter shows you how to configure Differentiated Services (DiffServ) on the Switch.
Quality of Service (QoS) is used to prioritize source-to-destination traffic flows. All packets in the
flow are given the same priority. You can use CoS (class of service) to give different priorities to
different packet types.
DiffServ is a class of service (CoS) model that marks packets so that they receive specific per-hop
treatment at DiffServ-compliant network devices along the route based on the application types
and traffic flow. Packets are marked with DiffServ Code Points (DSCPs) indicating the level of
service desired. This allows the intermediary DiffServ-compliant network devices to handle the
packets differently depending on the code points without the need to negotiate paths or remember
state information for every flow. In addition, applications do not have to request a particular service
or give advanced notice of where the traffic is going.
41.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the DiffServ screen (Section 41.2 on page 412) to activate DiffServ to apply marking rules
or IEEE 802.1p priority mapping on the Switch.
• Use the DSCP screen (Section 41.3.1 on page 414) to change the DSCP-IEEE 802.1p mapping.
41.1.2 What You Need to Know
Read on for concepts on Differentiated Services that can help you configure the screens in this
chapter.
DSCP and Per-Hop Behavior
DiffServ defines a new DS (Differentiated Services) field to replace the Type of Service (ToS) field in
the IP header. The DS field contains a 6-bit DSCP field which can define up to 64 service levels and
the remaining 2 bits are defined as currently unused (CU). The following figure illustrates the DS
field.
Figure 311 DiffServ: Differentiated Service Field
DSCP (6 bits)
CU (2 bits)
DSCP is backward compatible with the three precedence bits in the ToS octet so that non-DiffServ
compliant, ToS-enabled network device will not conflict with the DSCP mapping.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
411
Chapter 41 Differentiated Services
The DSCP value determines the PHB (Per-Hop Behavior), that each packet gets as it is forwarded
across the DiffServ network. Based on the marking rule different kinds of traffic can be marked for
different priorities of forwarding. Resources can then be allocated according to the DSCP values and
the configured policies.
DiffServ Network Example
The following figure depicts a DiffServ network consisting of a group of directly connected DiffServcompliant network devices. The boundary node (A in Figure 312) in a DiffServ network classifies
(marks with a DSCP value) the incoming packets into different traffic flows (Platinum, Gold,
Silver, Bronze) based on the configured marking rules. A network administrator can then apply
various traffic policies to the traffic flows. An example traffic policy, is to give higher drop
precedence to one traffic flow over others. In our example, packets in the Bronze traffic flow are
more likely to be dropped when congestion occurs than the packets in the Platinum traffic flow as
they move across the DiffServ network.

• Use the DHCPv4 Status screen (Section 42.3 on page 417) to display the relay mode.
• Use the DHCPv4 Relay screen (Section 42.4 on page 417) to enable and configure global
DHCPv4 relay.
• Use the VLAN Setting screen (Section 42.4.6 on page 423) to configure your DHCPv4 settings
based on the VLAN domain of the DHCPv4 clients.
• Use the DHCPv6 Relay screen (Section 42.5 on page 426) to enable and configure DHCPv6
relay.
42.1.2 What You Need to Know
Read on for concepts on DHCP that can help you configure the screens in this chapter.
DHCP Modes
If there is already a DHCP server on your network, then you can configure the Switch as a DHCP
relay agent. When the Switch receives a request from a computer on your network, it contacts the
DHCP server for the necessary IP information, and then relays the assigned information back to the
computer.
DHCPv4 Configuration Options
The DHCPv4 configuration on the Switch is divided into Global and VLAN screens. The screen you
should use for configuration depends on the DHCP services you want to offer the DHCP clients on
your network. Choose the configuration screen based on the following criteria:
• Global - The Switch forwards all DHCP requests to the same DHCP server.
• VLAN - The Switch is configured on a VLAN by VLAN basis. The Switch can be configured to relay
DHCP requests to different DHCP servers for clients in different VLAN.

This field displays:
None - if the Switch is not configured as a DHCP relay agent.
Global - if the Switch is configured as a DHCP relay agent only.
VLAN - followed by a VLAN ID or multiple VLAN IDs if it is configured as a relay agent for specific
VLAN(s).
42.4 DHCPv4 Relay
Configure DHCP relay on the Switch if the DHCP clients and the DHCP server are not in the same
broadcast domain. During the initial IP address leasing, the Switch helps to relay network
information (such as the IP address and subnet mask) between a DHCP client and a DHCP server.
Once the DHCP client obtains an IP address and can connect to the network, network information
renewal is done between the DHCP client and the DHCP server without the help of the Switch.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
417
Chapter 42 DHCP
The Switch can be configured as a global DHCP relay. This means that the Switch forwards all DHCP
requests from all domains to the same DHCP server. You can also configure the Switch to relay
DHCP information based on the VLAN membership of the DHCP clients.
42.4.1 DHCPv4 Relay Agent Information
The Switch can add information about the source of client DHCP requests that it relays to a DHCP
server by adding Relay Agent Information. This helps provide authentication about the source of
the requests. The DHCP server can then provide an IP address based on this information. Please
refer to RFC 3046 for more details.
The DHCP Relay Agent Information feature adds an Agent Information field (also known as the
Option 82 field) to DHCP requests. The Option 82 field is in the DHCP headers of client DHCP
request frames that the Switch relays to a DHCP server.
Relay Agent Information can include the System Name of the Switch if you select this option.
You can change the System Name in Basic Settings > General Setup.
The following describes the DHCP relay agent information that the Switch sends to the DHCP
server:

42.5 DHCPv6 Relay
A DHCPv6 relay agent is on the same network as the DHCPv6 clients and helps forward messages
between the DHCPv6 server and clients. When a client cannot use its link-local address and a wellknown multicast address to locate a DHCPv6 server on its network, it then needs a DHCPv6 relay
agent to send a message to a DHCPv6 server that is not attached to the same network.
The DHCPv6 relay agent can add the remote identification (remote-ID) option and the interface-ID
option to the Relay-Forward DHCPv6 messages. The remote-ID option carries a user-defined string,
such as the system name. The interface-ID option provides slot number, port information and the
VLAN ID to the DHCPv6 server. The remote-ID option (if any) is stripped from the Relay-Reply
messages before the relay agent sends the packets to the clients. The DHCPv6 server copies the
interface-ID option from the Relay-Forward message into the Relay-Reply message and sends it to
the relay agent. The interface-ID should not change even after the relay agent restarts.

ARP Setup
43.1 ARP Overview
Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is a protocol for mapping an Internet Protocol address (IP
address) to a physical machine address, also known as a Media Access Control or MAC address, on
the local area network.
An IP (version 4) address is 32 bits long. In an Ethernet LAN, MAC addresses are 48 bits long. The
ARP table maintains an association between each MAC address and its corresponding IP address.
43.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the ARP Learning screen (Section 43.2.1 on page 430) to configure ARP learning mode on
a per-port basis.
• Use the Static ARP screen (Section 43.2.2 on page 432) to create static ARP entries on the
Switch.
43.1.2 What You Need to Know
Read on for concepts on ARP that can help you configure the screen in this chapter.
43.1.2.1 How ARP Works
When an incoming packet destined for a host device on a local area network arrives at the Switch,
the Switch looks in the ARP Table and if it finds the address, it sends it to the device.
If no entry is found for the IP address, ARP broadcasts the request to all the devices on the LAN.
The Switch fills in its own MAC and IP address in the sender address fields, and puts the known IP
address of the target in the target IP address field. In addition, the Switch puts all ones in the
target MAC field (FF.FF.FF.FF.FF.FF is the Ethernet broadcast address). The replying device (which is
either the IP address of the device being sought or the router that knows the way) replaces the
broadcast address with the target's MAC address, swaps the sender and target pairs, and unicasts
the answer directly back to the requesting machine. ARP updates the ARP Table for future reference
and then sends the packet to the MAC address that replied.
43.1.2.2 ARP Learning Mode
The Switch supports three ARP learning modes: ARP-Reply, Gratuitous-ARP, and ARP-Request.
ARP-Reply
The Switch in ARP-Reply learning mode updates the ARP table only with the ARP replies to the ARP
requests sent by the Switch. This can help prevent ARP spoofing.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
428
Chapter 43 ARP Setup
In the following example, the Switch does not have IP address and MAC address mapping
information for hosts A and B in its ARP table, and host A wants to ping host B. Host A sends an
ARP request to the Switch and then sends an ICMP request after getting the ARP reply from the
Switch. The Switch finds no matched entry for host B in the ARP table and broadcasts the ARP
request to all the devices on the LAN. When the Switch receives the ARP reply from host B, it
updates its ARP table and also forwards host A’s ICMP request to host B. After the Switch gets the
ICMP reply from host B, it sends out an ARP request to get host A’s MAC address and updates the
ARP table with host A’s ARP reply. The Switch then can forward host B’s ICMP reply to host A.

Gratuitous-ARP
A gratuitous ARP is an ARP request in which both the source and destination IP address fields are
set to the IP address of the device that sends this request and the destination MAC address field is
set to the broadcast address. There will be no reply to a gratuitous ARP request.
A device may send a gratuitous ARP packet to detect IP collisions. If a device restarts or its MAC
address is changed, it can also use gratuitous ARP to inform other devices in the same network to
update their ARP table with the new mapping information.
In Gratuitous-ARP learning mode, the Switch updates its ARP table with either an ARP reply or a
gratuitous ARP request.
ARP-Request
When the Switch is in ARP-Request learning mode, it updates the ARP table with both ARP replies,
gratuitous ARP requests and ARP requests.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
429
Chapter 43 ARP Setup
Therefore in the following example, the Switch can learn host A’s MAC address from the ARP
request sent by host A. The Switch then forwards host B’s ICMP reply to host A right after getting
host B’s MAC address and ICMP reply.

LABEL
DESCRIPTION
CPU
Type a number ranging from 50 to 100 in the CPU threshold box, and type another
number ranging from 5 to 60 in the seconds box then click Apply.
For example, 80 for CPU threshold and 5 for seconds means a log will be created
when CPU utilization reaches over 80% and lasts for 5 seconds.
The log report holds 7 days of CPU log data and is stored in volatile memory (RAM).
The data is lost if the Switch is turned off or in event of power outage. After 7 days,
the logs wrap around and new ones and replace the earliest ones.
The higher the CPU threshold number, the fewer logs will be created, and the less
data technical support will have to analyze and vice versa.
Mbuf
Type a number ranging from 50 to 100 in the Mbuf (Memory Buffer) threshold box.
The Mbuf log report is stored in flash (permanent) memory.
For example, Mbuf 50 means a log will be created when the Mbuf utilization is over
50%.
The higher the Mbuf threshold number, the fewer logs will be created, and the less
data technical support will have to analyze and vice versa.
Apply
Click Apply to save your changes to the Switch’s run-time memory. The Switch loses
these changes if it is turned off or loses power, so use the Save link on the top

44.7 Technical Reference
This section provides technical background information on the topics discussed in this chapter.
44.7.1 FTP Command Line
This section shows some examples of uploading to or downloading files from the Switch using FTP
commands. First, understand the filename conventions.
44.7.2 Filename Conventions
The configuration file (also known as the romfile or ROM) contains the factory default settings in the
screens such as password, Switch setup, IP Setup, and so on. Once you have customized the
Switch’s settings, they can be saved back to your computer under a filename of your choosing.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
441
Chapter 44 Maintenance
ZyNOS (ZyXEL Network Operating System sometimes referred to as the “ras” file) is the system
firmware and has a “bin” filename extension.
Table 197 Filename Conventions
FILE TYPE
INTERNAL NAME
EXTERNAL NAME
DESCRIPTION
Configuration File
config
*.cfg
This is the configuration filename on the
Switch. Uploading the config file replaces
the specified configuration file system,
including your Switch configurations,
system-related data (including the
default password), the error log and the
trace log.
Firmware
ras
*.bin
This is the generic name for the ZyNOS
firmware on the Switch.
44.7.2.1 Example FTP Commands
ftp> put firmware.bin ras
This is a sample FTP session showing the transfer of the computer file "firmware.bin" to the Switch.
ftp> get config config.cfg
This is a sample FTP session saving the current configuration to a file called “config.cfg” on your
computer.
If your (T)FTP client does not allow you to have a destination filename different than the source,
you will need to rename them as the Switch only recognizes “config” and “ras”. Be sure you keep
unaltered copies of both files for later use.
Be sure to upload the correct model firmware as uploading the wrong
model firmware may damage your device.
44.7.3 FTP Command Line Procedure
1
Launch the FTP client on your computer.
2
Enter open, followed by a space and the IP address of your Switch.
3
Press [ENTER] when prompted for a username.
4
Enter your password as requested (the default is “1234”).
5
Enter bin to set transfer mode to binary.
6
Use put to transfer files from the computer to the Switch, for example, put firmware.bin ras
transfers the firmware on your computer (firmware.bin) to the Switch and renames it to “ras”.
Similarly, put config.cfg config transfers the configuration file on your computer (config.cfg) to
the Switch and renames it to “config”. Likewise get config config.cfg transfers the configuration
file on the Switch to your computer and renames it to “config.cfg”. See Table 197 on page 442 for
more information on filename conventions.
7
Enter quit to exit the ftp prompt.

Chapter 45 Access Control
45.7.1 About SNMP
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an application layer protocol used to manage and
monitor TCP/IP-based devices. SNMP is used to exchange management information between the
network management system (NMS) and a network element (NE). A manager station can manage
and monitor the Switch through the network via SNMP version 1 (SNMPv1), SNMP version 2c or
SNMP version 3. The next figure illustrates an SNMP management operation. SNMP is only available
if TCP/IP is configured.
Figure 350 SNMP Management Model
An SNMP managed network consists of two main components: agents and a manager.
An agent is a management software module that resides in a managed Switch (the Switch). An
agent translates the local management information from the managed Switch into a form
compatible with SNMP. The manager is the console through which network administrators perform
network management functions. It executes applications that control and monitor managed
devices.
The managed devices contain object variables/managed objects that define each piece of
information to be collected about a Switch. Examples of variables include number of packets
received, node port status and so on. A Management Information Base (MIB) is a collection of
managed objects. SNMP allows a manager and agents to communicate for the purpose of accessing
these objects.
SNMP itself is a simple request/response protocol based on the manager/agent model. The
manager issues a request and the agent returns responses using the following protocol operations:
Table 206 SNMP Commands
LABEL
DESCRIPTION
Get
Allows the manager to retrieve an object variable from the agent.
GetNext
Allows the manager to retrieve the next object variable from a table or list within an agent.
In SNMPv1, when a manager wants to retrieve all elements of a table from an agent, it
initiates a Get operation, followed by a series of GetNext operations.
Set
Allows the manager to set values for object variables within an agent.
Trap
Used by the agent to inform the manager of some events.
SNMP v3 and Security
SNMP v3 enhances security for SNMP management. SNMP managers can be required to
authenticate with agents before conducting SNMP management sessions.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
454
Chapter 45 Access Control
Security can be further enhanced by encrypting the SNMP messages sent from the managers.
Encryption protects the contents of the SNMP messages. When the contents of the SNMP messages
are encrypted, only the intended recipients can read them.
Supported MIBs
MIBs let administrators collect statistics and monitor status and performance.
The Switch supports the following MIBs:
• SNMP MIB II (RFC 1213)
• RFC 1157 SNMP v1
• RFC 1493 Bridge MIBs
• RFC 1643 Ethernet MIBs
• RFC 1155 SMI
• RFC 2674 SNMPv2, SNMPv2c
• RFC 1757 RMON
• SNMPv2, SNMPv2c or later version, compliant with RFC 2011 SNMPv2 MIB for IP, RFC 2012
SNMPv2 MIB for TCP, RFC 2013 SNMPv2 MIB for UDP
SNMP Traps
The Switch sends traps to an SNMP manager when an event occurs. The following tables outline the
SNMP traps by category.
An OID (Object ID) that begins with “1.3.6.1.4.1.890.1.15” is defined in private MIBs. Otherwise,
it is a standard MIB OID.

45.7.2 SSH Overview
Unlike Telnet or FTP, which transmit data in clear text, SSH (Secure Shell) is a secure
communication protocol that combines authentication and data encryption to provide secure
encrypted communication between two hosts over an unsecured network.
Figure 351 SSH Communication Example
45.7.2.1 How SSH works
The following table summarizes how a secure connection is established between two remote hosts.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
460
Chapter 45 Access Control
Figure 352 How SSH Works
1
Host Identification
The SSH client sends a connection request to the SSH server. The server identifies itself with a host
key. The client encrypts a randomly generated session key with the host key and server key and
sends the result back to the server.
The client automatically saves any new server public keys. In subsequent connections, the server
public key is checked against the saved version on the client computer.
2
Encryption Method
Once the identification is verified, both the client and server must agree on the type of encryption
method to use.
3
Authentication and Data Transmission
After the identification is verified and data encryption activated, a secure tunnel is established
between the client and the server. The client then sends its authentication information (user name
and password) to the server to log in to the server.
45.7.2.2 SSH Implementation on the Switch
Your Switch supports SSH version 2 using RSA authentication and three encryption methods (DES,
3DES and Blowfish). The SSH server is implemented on the Switch for remote management and file
transfer on port 22. Only one SSH connection is allowed at a time.
45.7.2.3 Requirements for Using SSH
You must install an SSH client program on a client computer (Windows or Linux operating system)
that is used to connect to the Switch over SSH.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide

Chapter 45 Access Control
45.7.3 Introduction to HTTPS
HTTPS (HyperText Transfer Protocol over Secure Socket Layer, or HTTP over SSL) is a web protocol
that encrypts and decrypts web pages. Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is an application-level protocol
that enables secure transactions of data by ensuring confidentiality (an unauthorized party cannot
read the transferred data), authentication (one party can identify the other party) and data
integrity (you know if data has been changed).
It relies upon certificates, public keys, and private keys.
HTTPS on the Switch is used so that you may securely access the Switch using the web
configurator. The SSL protocol specifies that the SSL server (the Switch) must always authenticate
itself to the SSL client (the computer which requests the HTTPS connection with the Switch),
whereas the SSL client only should authenticate itself when the SSL server requires it to do so.
Authenticating client certificates is optional and if selected means the SSL-client must send the
Switch a certificate. You must apply for a certificate for the browser from a Certificate Authority
(CA) that is a trusted CA on the Switch.
Please refer to the following figure.
1
HTTPS connection requests from an SSL-aware web browser go to port 443 (by default) on the
Switch’s WS (web server).
2
HTTP connection requests from a web browser go to port 80 (by default) on the Switch’s WS (web
server).
Figure 353 HTTPS Implementation
Note: If you disable HTTP in the Service Access Control screen, then the Switch blocks all
HTTP connection attempts.
45.7.3.1 HTTPS Example
If you haven’t changed the default HTTPS port on the Switch, then in your browser enter “https://
Switch IP Address/” as the web site address where “Switch IP Address” is the IP address or domain
name of the Switch you wish to access.

48.1 Syslog Overview
This chapter explains the syslog screens.
The syslog protocol allows devices to send event notification messages across an IP network to
syslog servers that collect the event messages. A syslog-enabled device can generate a syslog
message and send it to a syslog server.
Syslog is defined in RFC 3164. The RFC defines the packet format, content and system log related
information of syslog messages. Each syslog message has a facility and severity level. The syslog
facility identifies a file in the syslog server. Refer to the documentation of your syslog program for
details. The following table describes the syslog severity levels.

MAC Table
50.1 MAC Table Overview
This chapter introduces the MAC Table screen.
The MAC Table screen (a MAC table is also known as a filtering database) shows how frames are
forwarded or filtered across the Switch’s ports. It shows what device MAC address, belonging to
what VLAN group (if any) is forwarded to which port(s) and whether the MAC address is dynamic
(learned by the Switch) or static (manually entered in the Static MAC Forwarding screen).
50.1.1 What You Can Do
Use the MAC Table screen (Section 50.2 on page 481) to check whether the MAC address is
dynamic or static.
50.1.2 What You Need to Know
The Switch uses the MAC table to determine how to forward frames. See the following figure.
1
The Switch examines a received frame and learns the port on which this source MAC address came.
2
The Switch checks to see if the frame's destination MAC address matches a source MAC address
already learned in the MAC table.
• If the Switch has already learned the port for this MAC address, then it forwards the frame to
that port.
• If the Switch has not already learned the port for this MAC address, then the frame is flooded to
all ports. Too much port flooding leads to network congestion.
• If the Switch has already learned the port for this MAC address, but the destination port is the
same as the port it came in on, then it filters the frame.

IP Table
51.1 IP Table Overview
The IP Table screen shows how packets are forwarded or filtered across the Switch’s ports. When
a device (which may belong to a VLAN group) sends a packet which is forwarded to a port on the
Switch, the IP address of the device is shown on the Switch’s IP Table. The IP Table also shows
whether the IP address is dynamic (learned by the Switch) or static (belonging to the Switch).
The Switch uses the IP Table to determine how to forward packets. See the following figure.
1
The Switch examines a received packet and learns the port from which this source IP address
came.
2
The Switch checks to see if the packet's destination IP address matches a source IP address already
learned in the IP Table.
• If the Switch has already learned the port for this IP address, then it forwards the packet to
that port.
• If the Switch has not already learned the port for this IP address, then the packet is flooded to
all ports. Too much port flooding leads to network congestionthen the Switch sends an ARP to
request the MAC address. The Switch then learns the port that replies with the MAC address.
• If the Switch has already learned the port for this IP address, but the destination port is the
same as the port it came in on, then it filters the packet.

ARP Table
52.1 ARP Table Overview
Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is a protocol for mapping an Internet Protocol address (IP
address) to a physical machine address, also known as a Media Access Control or MAC address, on
the local area network.
An IP (version 4) address is 32 bits long. In an Ethernet LAN, MAC addresses are 48 bits long. The
ARP Table maintains an association between each MAC address and its corresponding IP address.
52.1.1 What You Can Do
Use the ARP Table screen (Section 52.2 on page 485) to view IP-to-MAC address mapping(s).
52.1.2 What You Need to Know
When an incoming packet destined for a host device on a local area network arrives at the Switch,
the Switch's ARP program looks in the ARP Table and if it finds the address, it sends it to the device.
If no entry is found for the IP address, ARP broadcasts the request to all the devices on the LAN.
The Switch fills in its own MAC and IP address in the sender address fields, and puts the known IP
address of the target in the target IP address field. In addition, the Switch puts all ones in the
target MAC field (FF.FF.FF.FF.FF.FF is the Ethernet broadcast address). The replying device (which is
either the IP address of the device being sought or the router that knows the way) replaces the
broadcast address with the target's MAC address, swaps the sender and target pairs, and unicasts
the answer directly back to the requesting machine. ARP updates the ARP Table for future reference
and then sends the packet to the MAC address that replied.
52.2 Viewing the ARP Table
Use the ARP table to view IP-to-MAC address mapping(s) and remove specific dynamic ARP entries.

Path MTU Table
54.1 Path MTU Overview
This chapter introduces the IPv6 Path MTU table.
The largest size (in bytes) of a packet that can be transferred over a data link is called the
maximum transmission unit (MTU). The Switch uses Path MTU Discovery to discover Path MTU
(PMTU), that is, the minimum link MTU of all the links in a path to the destination. If the Switch
receives an ICMPv6 Packet Too Big error message after sending a packet, it fragments the next
packet according to the suggested MTU in the error message.

IPv6 Neighbor Table
56.1 IPv6 Neighbor Table Overview
This chapter introduces the IPv6 neighbor table.
An IPv6 host is required to have a neighbor table. If there is an address to be resolved or verified,
the Switch sends out a neighbor solicitation message. When the Switch receives a neighbor
advertisement in response, it stores the neighbor’s link-layer address in the neighbor table. You can
also manually create a static IPv6 neighbor entry using the Basic Setting > IPv6 > IPv6
Configuration > IPv6 Neighbor Setup screen.
When the Switch needs to send a packet, it first consults other table to determine the next hop.
Once the next hop IPv6 address is known, the Switch looks into the neighbor table to get the linklayer address and sends the packet when the neighbor is reachable. If the Switch cannot find an
entry in the neighbor table or the state for the neighbor is not reachable, it starts the address
resolution process. This helps reduce the number of IPv6 solicitation and advertisement messages.
56.2 Viewing the IPv6 Neighbor Table
Use this screen to view IPv6 neighbor information on the Switch. Click Management > IPv6

Type
reachable (R): The interface of the neighboring device is reachable. (The Switch has
received a response to the initial request.)
stale (S): The last reachable time has expired and the Switch is waiting for a response to
another initial request. The field displays this also when the Switch receives an
unrequested response from the neighbor’s interface.
delay (D): The neighboring interface is no longer known to be reachable, and traffic has
been sent to the neighbor recently. The Switch delays sending request packets for a short
to give upper-layer protocols a chance to determine reachability.
probe (P): The Switch is sending request packets and waiting for the neighbor’s response.
invalid (IV): The neighbor address is with an invalid IPv6 address.
unknown (?): The status of the neighboring interface can not be determined for some
reason.
incomplete (I): Address resolution is in progress and the link-layer address of the neighbor
has not yet been determined. The interface of the neighboring device did not give a
complete response.
This field displays the type of an address mapping to a neighbor interface. The available
options in this field are:

IPv6
Overview
IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6), is designed to enhance IP address size and features. The
increase in IPv6 address size to 128 bits (from the 32-bit IPv4 address) allows up to 3.4 x 1038 IP
addresses.
IPv6 Addressing
The 128-bit IPv6 address is written as eight 16-bit hexadecimal blocks separated by colons (:). This
is an example IPv6 address 2001:0db8:1a2b:0015:0000:0000:1a2f:0000.
IPv6 addresses can be abbreviated in two ways:
• Leading zeros in a block can be omitted. So 2001:0db8:1a2b:0015:0000:0000:1a2f:0000 can
be written as 2001:db8:1a2b:15:0:0:1a2f:0.
• Any number of consecutive blocks of zeros can be replaced by a double colon. A double colon can
only appear once in an IPv6 address. So 2001:0db8:0000:0000:1a2f:0000:0000:0015 can be
written as 2001:0db8::1a2f:0000:0000:0015, 2001:0db8:0000:0000:1a2f::0015,
2001:db8::1a2f:0:0:15 or 2001:db8:0:0:1a2f::15.
Prefix and Prefix Length
Similar to an IPv4 subnet mask, IPv6 uses an address prefix to represent the network address. An
IPv6 prefix length specifies how many most significant bits (start from the left) in the address
compose the network address. The prefix length is written as “/x” where x is a number. For
example,
2001:db8:1a2b:15::1a2f:0/32
means that the first 32 bits (2001:db8) is the subnet prefix.
Link-local Address
A link-local address uniquely identifies a device on the local network (the LAN). It is similar to a
“private IP address” in IPv4. You can have the same link-local address on multiple interfaces on a
device. A link-local unicast address has a predefined prefix of fe80::/10. The link-local unicast
address format is as follows.

XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
509
Appendix C IPv6
Global Address
A global address uniquely identifies a device on the Internet. It is similar to a “public IP address” in
IPv4. A global unicast address starts with a 2 or 3.
Unspecified Address
An unspecified address (0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0 or ::) is used as the source address when a device does
not have its own address. It is similar to “0.0.0.0” in IPv4.
Loopback Address
A loopback address (0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1 or ::1) allows a host to send packets to itself. It is similar to
“127.0.0.1” in IPv4.
Multicast Address
In IPv6, multicast addresses provide the same functionality as IPv4 broadcast addresses.
Broadcasting is not supported in IPv6. A multicast address allows a host to send packets to all hosts
in a multicast group.
Multicast scope allows you to determine the size of the multicast group. A multicast address has a
predefined prefix of ff00::/8. The following table describes some of the predefined multicast
addresses.

Subnet Masking
Both an IPv6 address and IPv6 subnet mask compose of 128-bit binary digits, which are divided
into eight 16-bit blocks and written in hexadecimal notation. Hexadecimal uses four bits for each
character (1 ~ 10, A ~ F). Each block’s 16 bits are then represented by four hexadecimal
characters. For example, FFFF:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF:FC00:0000:0000:0000.
Interface ID
In IPv6, an interface ID is a 64-bit identifier. It identifies a physical interface (for example, an
Ethernet port) or a virtual interface (for example, the management IP address for a VLAN). One
interface should have a unique interface ID.
EUI-64
The EUI-64 (Extended Unique Identifier) defined by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers) is an interface ID format designed to adapt with IPv6. It is derived from the 48-bit (6byte) Ethernet MAC address as shown next. EUI-64 inserts the hex digits fffe between the third and
fourth bytes of the MAC address and complements the seventh bit of the first byte of the MAC
address. See the following example.

Stateless Autoconfiguration
With stateless autoconfiguration in IPv6, addresses can be uniquely and automatically generated.
Unlike DHCPv6 (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol version six) which is used in IPv6 stateful
autoconfiguration, the owner and status of addresses don’t need to be maintained by a DHCP
server. Every IPv6 device is able to generate its own and unique IP address automatically when
IPv6 is initiated on its interface. It combines the prefix and the interface ID (generated from its own
Ethernet MAC address, see Interface ID and EUI-64) to form a complete IPv6 address.
When IPv6 is enabled on a device, its interface automatically generates a link-local address
(beginning with fe80).
When the interface is connected to a network with a router and the Switch is set to automatically
obtain an IPv6 network prefix from the router for the interface, it generates 3another address which
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
511
Appendix C IPv6
combines its interface ID and global and subnet information advertised from the router. This is a
routable global IP address.
DHCPv6
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6 (DHCPv6, RFC 3315) is a server-client protocol
that allows a DHCP server to assign and pass IPv6 network addresses, prefixes and other
configuration information to DHCP clients. DHCPv6 servers and clients exchange DHCP messages
using UDP.
Each DHCP client and server has a unique DHCP Unique IDentifier (DUID), which is used for
identification when they are exchanging DHCPv6 messages. The DUID is generated from the MAC
address, time, vendor assigned ID and/or the vendor's private enterprise number registered with
the IANA. It should not change over time even after you reboot the device.
Identity Association
An Identity Association (IA) is a collection of addresses assigned to a DHCP client, through which
the server and client can manage a set of related IP addresses. Each IA must be associated with
exactly one interface. The DHCP client uses the IA assigned to an interface to obtain configuration
from a DHCP server for that interface. Each IA consists of a unique IAID and associated IP
information.
The IA type is the type of address in the IA. Each IA holds one type of address. IA_NA means an
identity association for non-temporary addresses and IA_TA is an identity association for temporary
addresses. An IA_NA option contains the T1 and T2 fields, but an IA_TA option does not. The
DHCPv6 server uses T1 and T2 to control the time at which the client contacts with the server to
extend the lifetimes on any addresses in the IA_NA before the lifetimes expire. After T1, the client
sends the server (S1) (from which the addresses in the IA_NA were obtained) a Renew message. If
the time T2 is reached and the server does not respond, the client sends a Rebind message to any
available server (S2). For an IA_TA, the client may send a Renew or Rebind message at the client's
discretion.

DHCP Relay Agent
A DHCP relay agent is on the same network as the DHCP clients and helps forward messages
between the DHCP server and clients. When a client cannot use its link-local address and a wellknown multicast address to locate a DHCP server on its network, it then needs a DHCP relay agent
to send a message to a DHCP server that is not attached to the same network.
The DHCP relay agent can add the remote identification (remote-ID) option and the interface-ID
option to the Relay-Forward DHCPv6 messages. The remote-ID option carries a user-defined string,
3.
In IPv6, all network interfaces can be associated with several addresses.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
512
Appendix C IPv6
such as the system name. The interface-ID option provides slot number, port information and the
VLAN ID to the DHCPv6 server. The remote-ID option (if any) is stripped from the Relay-Reply
messages before the relay agent sends the packets to the clients. The DHCP server copies the
interface-ID option from the Relay-Forward message into the Relay-Reply message and sends it to
the relay agent. The interface-ID should not change even after the relay agent restarts.
Prefix Delegation
Prefix delegation enables an IPv6 router to use the IPv6 prefix (network address) received from the
ISP (or a connected uplink router) for its LAN. The Switch uses the received IPv6 prefix (for
example, 2001:db2::/48) to generate its LAN IP address. Through sending Router Advertisements
(RAs) regularly by multicast, the Switch passes the IPv6 prefix information to its LAN hosts. The
hosts then can use the prefix to generate their IPv6 addresses.
ICMPv6
Internet Control Message Protocol for IPv6 (ICMPv6 or ICMP for IPv6) is defined in RFC 4443.
ICMPv6 has a preceding Next Header value of 58, which is different from the value used to identify
ICMP for IPv4. ICMPv6 is an integral part of IPv6. IPv6 nodes use ICMPv6 to report errors
encountered in packet processing and perform other diagnostic functions, such as "ping".
Neighbor Discovery Protocol (NDP)
The Neighbor Discovery Protocol (NDP) is a protocol used to discover other IPv6 devices and track
neighbor’s reachability in a network. An IPv6 device uses the following ICMPv6 messages types:
• Neighbor solicitation: A request from a host to determine a neighbor’s link-layer address (MAC
address) and detect if the neighbor is still reachable. A neighbor being “reachable” means it
responds to a neighbor solicitation message (from the host) with a neighbor advertisement
message.
• Neighbor advertisement: A response from a node to announce its link-layer address.
• Router solicitation: A request from a host to locate a router that can act as the default router and
forward packets.
• Router advertisement: A response to a router solicitation or a periodical multicast advertisement
from a router to advertise its presence and other parameters.
IPv6 Cache
An IPv6 host is required to have a neighbor cache, destination cache, prefix list and default router
list. The Switch maintains and updates its IPv6 caches constantly using the information from
response messages. In IPv6, the Switch configures a link-local address automatically, and then
sends a neighbor solicitation message to check if the address is unique. If there is an address to be
resolved or verified, the Switch also sends out a neighbor solicitation message. When the Switch
receives a neighbor advertisement in response, it stores the neighbor’s link-layer address in the
neighbor cache. When the Switch uses a router solicitation message to query for a router and
receives a router advertisement message, it adds the router’s information to the neighbor cache,
prefix list and destination cache. The Switch creates an entry in the default router list cache if the
router can be used as a default router.
When the Switch needs to send a packet, it first consults the destination cache to determine the
next hop. If there is no matching entry in the destination cache, the Switch uses the prefix list to
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide
513
Appendix C IPv6
determine whether the destination address is on-link and can be reached directly without passing
through a router. If the address is onlink, the address is considered as the next hop. Otherwise, the
Switch determines the next-hop from the default router list or routing table. Once the next hop IP
address is known, the Switch looks into the neighbor cache to get the link-layer address and sends
the packet when the neighbor is reachable. If the Switch cannot find an entry in the neighbor cache
or the state for the neighbor is not reachable, it starts the address resolution process. This helps
reduce the number of IPv6 solicitation and advertisement messages.
Example - Enabling IPv6 on Windows XP/2003/Vista
By default, Windows XP and Windows 2003 support IPv6. This example shows you how to use the
ipv6 install command on Windows XP/2003 to enable IPv6. This also displays how to use the
ipconfig command to see auto-generated IP addresses.

IPv6 is installed and enabled by default in Windows Vista. Use the ipconfig command to check
your automatic configured IPv6 address as well. You should see at least one IPv6 address available
for the interface on your computer.
Example - Enabling DHCPv6 on Windows XP
Windows XP does not support DHCPv6. If your network uses DHCPv6 for IP address assignment,
you have to additionally install a DHCPv6 client software on your Windows XP. (Note: If you use
static IP addresses or Router Advertisement for IPv6 address assignment in your network, ignore
this section.)
This example uses Dibbler as the DHCPv6 client. To enable DHCPv6 client on your computer:
1
Install Dibbler and select the DHCPv6 client option on your computer.
2
After the installation is complete, select Start > All Programs > Dibbler-DHCPv6 > Client
Install as service.
3
Select Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services.
XGS2210 Series User’s Guide

Now your computer can obtain an IPv6 address from a DHCPv6 server.
Example - Enabling IPv6 on Windows 7
Windows 7 supports IPv6 by default. DHCPv6 is also enabled when you enable IPv6 on a Windows 7
computer.
To enable IPv6 in Windows 7:
1
Select Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Local Area Connection.
2
Select the Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) checkbox to enable it.
