13
8-port mk2 user’s guide v1.0
ADVANCED CONFIGURATION
Port mirror configuration
Users can do Port Mirror Configuration in above page. Port mirroring is used on a network switch to
send a copy of network packets or data traffic from some ports (or an entire VLAN) to a network
monitoring connection on specified switch port. The original port is called Source Port, and the
specified port is Mirroring Port. This is commonly used for network appliances that require monitoring
of network traffic without influencing the normal working of every port, it’s a convenient onlinemonitoring function.
All ports have mirroring function, but only one port can be configured as Mirroring Port. In the same
system, there is only one mirroring port, while more than one Source Ports can be existed. When a
port is configured as mirroring port, its corresponding port can’t be configured as source port.
Port aggregation
STATIC AGGREGATION
14
8-port mk2 user’s guide v1.0
Switches support 8 aggregation groups; each group contains maximum 8 ports. The members in the
same aggregation group should have same configuration for port forwarding rate mode and VLAN
distribution. If LACP function applied for some ports, then static aggregation can’t be configured.
Notice: Static aggregation can’t be configured when LACP function enabled.
LACP SETTINGS
When the LACP protocol is on, the aggregated devices interactively gather information through LACP.
According to the parameters and status of each device, automatically receive and dispatch Data of
match able link aggregation. When the Aggregation is formed, switches keep in an aggregation link
status, switches automatically adjusts link aggregation or dissolute when configuration changes. If the
port is configured as static aggregation, the dynamic LACP will be not available.
Notice: Static aggregation LACP function can’t be used together.
VLAN management
VLAN SETTINGS
VLAN can be created or deleted in above page. Users can create a new VLAN and give a name to the
VLAN.
15
8-port mk2 user’s guide v1.0
VLAN PORT STATUS
Port features can be configured in above page. Users can create a VLAN and add ports to the VLAN list
with specified mode. VLAN features and port parameters can be configured.
Ingress Filtering: enable ingress filtering function to abandon or forward unmatched VLAN packets.
This function is default disable; the unmatched packet will be received.
Membership type: tag refers to the port will receive tagged packets (and the VLAN ID in for tagged
packet is not “0”); untag refers to the port receive untagged packets only.
Voice VLAN
VOICE VLAN
Voice VLAN is the VLAN for voice data flow. Create a Voice VLAN and add the ports connected with
voice devices to Voice VLAN, Voice data flow can be centrally transmitted in Voice VLAN. Users can
configure special QoS (Quality of Service) for the voice data flow, like configure a higher transmitting
priority class to ensure a high quality connection.
16
8-port mk2 user’s guide v1.0
VOICE VLAN OUI
Voice VLAN signify mode can be configured in this page, like Siemens AG phones Cisco phones, H3C
phones……
Multicast configuration
MLD Snooping is short for Multicast Listener Discovery Snooping, which is IPv6 multicast control
mechanism for Layer 2 devices. The function is used to manage and control IPv6 multicast.
Multicast snooping configuration can be made in above page, enable or disable multicast snooping
and define multicast snooping address range.
17
8-port mk2 user’s guide v1.0
IGMP snooping configuration
IGMP snooping configuration can be made in above page, enable or disable IGMP snooping and define
IGMP snooping address range.
Jumbo frame configuration
Generally, the max frame size for packet is 1518 Bytes, when packet is larger than this size, it will be
processed in batch, 1518 Bytes as a unit. And users can also set a Jumbo Frame limitation in this page
(from 1522 to 9216 Bytes), enable Jumbo Frames transmitted smoothly, reduce the load.
18
8-port mk2 user’s guide v1.0
LLDP configuration
Switches support LLDP (Link Layer Discovery Protocol), which can define switch capacity, management
address, device tags and port tags as different(TLV(type/length/value) and save them in LLDPDU (Link
Layer Discovery Protocol Data Unit). This information will be released to the direct-connected
neighbour device, neighbour devices will save this information based on MIB (Management
Information Base). This information will be used for network management system examination or
judge link communication condition.
LLDP information can be configured in above page, including transmission interval, hold time
Multiplier, retransmission delay and transmission delay.
Enable LLDP or Disable LLDP can be configured. Users can also configure the information transmitted
to neighbour devices, like port description, system name, system description, system property and
management address.
SNMP configuration
SNMP SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is Internet-standard protocol for managing
devices on networks. It consists of a set of standards for network management, including an
application protocol, a database schema, and a set of data objects. SNMP is used mostly in network
19
8-port mk2 user’s guide v1.0
management systems to monitor network-attached devices for conditions that warrant administrative
attention.
SNMP COMMUNITY CONFIGURATION
Configure SNMP common identifiers, switches with same community identifier can make unified
management.
TRAP CONFIGURATION
SNMP trap is a message used in SNMP protocol, the device can send a trap message to SNMP manager
when they experience a problem, rather than waiting for the polling of SNMP manager.
