Rate Limits
Broadcast storms may occur when a device on your network is
malfunctioning, or if application programs are not well designed or properly
configured. If there is too much broadcast traffic on your network,
performance can be severely degraded, or everything can come to a complete
halt.
You can protect your network from broadcast storms by setting a threshold
for broadcast traffic for each port. Any broadcast packets exceeding the
specified threshold will then be dropped.
Field Attributes
Enable Rate Limits – Click to select the box to enable rate limits.
(Default: Disabled)
•
Limit (number of frames per second) – Threshold of port
bandwidth measured in number of frames per second. From the drop
down menu you can choose the desired limit. The value specifies the
size of the available input bandwidth that can be made available for
broadcast and multicast traffic. The same limit size is applied to every
port on the switch. When the limit size is exceeded, packets are
dropped, irrespective of the flow control settings.

Port Mirroring
You can mirror traffic from any source port to a target port for real-time
analysis. You can then attach a network analyzer or RMON probe to the target
port and study the traffic crossing the source port in a completely unobtrusive
manner.
Field Attributes
Port to Mirror to
•
If the total ingress bandwidth exceeds the mirror port’s egress bandwidth,
packets will eventually be dropped on ingress to the switch, which means they
will not reach the mirror port or their intended destination port. Input ratelimiting in conjunction with port flow-control should be used to ensure that
the total ingress bandwidth never exceeds the egress bandwidth.
Ports to Mirror
•
Mirroring Enabled – The port whose traffic will be monitored. If
enabled, the data packets on this port will be mirrored.
(Default: Disabled)
2-13

Trunk Membership
This page allows you to create static trunks. Trunking allows you to assign
physical links to one logical link (trunk) that functions as a single, higherspeed link providing dramatically increased bandwidth. This capability
applies to connections between backbone devices as well as to connections
in other network areas where traffic bottlenecks exist.

LACP Settings
Using the ProCurve Web
Browser Interface
The switch supports both static trunking and dynamic Link Aggregation
Control Protocol (LACP), which is specified in IEEE 802.3ad. Static trunks
have to be manually configured at both ends of the link, on the other hand,
LACP configured ports can automatically negotiate a trunked link with LACPconfigured ports on another device. You can configure any number of ports
on the switch as LACP, as long as they are not already configured as part of a
static trunk. If ports on another device are also configured as LACP, the switch
and the other device will negotiate a trunk link between them. If an LACP
trunk consists of more than four ports, all other ports will be placed in a
standby mode. Should one link in the trunk fail, one of the standby ports will
automatically be activated to replace it.
You can use the LACP Setting page to configure LACP for each port.
Enabling LACP
1.
On the LACP Setting page, click the box under the column labeled “LACP

VLAN Setup
This page allows you to create up to 64 VLANs based on the 802.1Q standard.
You can also delete or modify VLANs.
Introduction to VLANs
VLANs are logical partitions of the physical LAN. You can use VLANs to
increase network performance, improve internal network security, or create
separate broadcast domains.
Using the ProCurve Web
Browser Interface
If the network has adequate performance and security for your current needs,
it is recommended that you leave the VLAN settings in the default
configuration. The default configuration is as follows:
•
All ports are members of VLAN 1
•
The switch management interface is on VLAN 1 (this cannot be
changed)
•
All ports have a Port VLAN ID (PVID) of 1
•
All ports can send and receive both VLAN-tagged and untagged
packets (that is, they are hybrid ports)
In the default configuration, any port is able to send traffic to any other port,
and a PC connected to any port will be able to access the management
interface. Broadcast traffic, for example, will be flooded to all ports on the
switch.
The four VLAN parameters you can configure for each port on the switch
include VLAN Aware Enabled, Ingress Filtering Enabled, Packet Type, and
PVID. Note that the ports within a trunk cannot be configured individually;
configure the trunk instead (trunks are labelled T1 to T12 for the 24 port
switch, and T1 to T4 for the 8 port switch).

VLAN Port Config
You can configure VLAN behavior for specific interfaces, including the default
VLAN identifier (PVID) and accepted frame types. This page allows you to
change the VLAN membership and behavior of individual ports. Each row of
the table corresponds to one port or trunk; trunked ports cannot be configured
individually.
Field Attributes
VLAN Per Port Configuration
Port/Trunk – The port number or the ID of a trunk.
•
VLAN Aware Enabled – VLAN aware ports are able to use VLAN
tagged frames to determine the destination of the frame. Click to
enable or disable VLAN awareness mode for this port.
(Default: Enabled)
•
Ingress Filtering Enabled – If enabled, incoming frames for VLANs
which do not include this ingress port in their member set will be
discarded. (Default: Disabled)
•
Packet Type – Users can set the interface to accept all frame types,
or only tagged frames.
If the Packet Type is set to “All,” the port can accept incoming tagged
and untagged packets. Untagged packets will be associated with the
VLAN identified by the PVID. Tagged packets will be dropped unless
the port is a member of the VLAN identified by the VLAN tag in the
packet.
If the Packet Type is set to “Tagged,” the port will only send tagged
packets. (Default: All)
•
PVID – From a drop down menu, choose the VLAN ID that will be
assigned to untagged frames received on this port. You cannot choose
“None” for the VLAN ID unless the packet type is set to “Tagged Only.”
Choosing “None” will not assign any VLAN ID to untagged frames
received on this port. It is not possible to remove a port from VLAN
1 unless its PVID has been changed to something other than 1. The
PVID has no effect on ports that have Packet Type set to Tagged.

■
ProCurve Networking Customer Support Services (page 3-2)
Basic Troubleshooting Tips
Common problems and their solution are listed in the following table.
Problem
Resolution
Cannot connect using the
Web browser.
• Be sure you have configured the agent with a valid IP
address, subnet mask and default gateway.
• If you are trying to connect to the agent via the IP
address for a tagged VLAN group, your management
station must include the appropriate tag in its
transmitted frames.
• Check that you have a valid network connection to the
switch.
• Check network cabling between the management
station and the switch.

Troubleshooting
For more information on possible network problems and their solutions, refer
to the technical note “Troubleshooting LAN Performance and Intermittent
Connectivity Problems”, which can be found on the ProCurve Networking
Web site, http://www.procurve.com, in the Information Library section.
Troubleshooting
Forgotten the IP Address or Password
Forgotten the IP Address or Password
If you have forgotten the switch’s IP address or administration password you
can return the switch to its factory default state by doing the following:
1.
Remove the power cord from the back of the switch.
2.
Remove all cables from the front-panel ports.
3.
Connect port 1 to port 2 on the front panel, using a standard network cable.
4.
Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the switch.
5.
Wait at least 40 seconds before disconnecting port 1 from port 2.
After completing this procedure, there will be no password, the IP address
will be returned to the default 192.168.2.10, and all configuration settings will
be returned to factory defaults.
Testing the Switch by Resetting It
If you believe the switch is not operating correctly, you can reset the switch
to test its circuitry and operating code. To reset a switch, unplug and plug in
the power cord (power cycling)
Troubleshooting
Power cycling the switch cause the switch to perform its power-on self test,
which almost always will resolve any temporary operational problems.
