Chapter 1: Introduction
1.3.1
Connectivity
The 6M146-04 has two front panel slots (ports 1 and 2) for optional Fast
Ethernet Interface Modules to support an uplink to 100 Mbps Ethernet
backbones or a high speed connection to a local server.
The 6M146-04 also has two front panel slots for optional High Speed
Interface Modules to provide for additional connectivity to other high
speed networking technologies such as ATM, WANs and FDDI.
1.3.2
Full Duplex Switched Ethernet
The optional Fast Ethernet Interface Modules can be configured to
operate in Full Duplex Switched Ethernet mode, which provides
200 Mbps of throughput per interface.
1.3.3
Auto-Negotiation
The optional FE-100TX Fast Ethernet Interface Module can
auto-negotiate the type of connection required to provide a link to another
device. During Auto-Negotiation, two devices automatically exchange
information “telling” each other what their operating capabilities are. The
Auto-Negotiation feature targets the maximum capabilities that can be
reached between the two devices. For example, a 6M146-04 FE-100TX
Fast Ethernet Interface Module adjusts to 100 Mbps when the device on
the other end of the connection can also adjust between 10 or 100 Mbps.
If the device on the other end of the connection can only operate at
10 Mbps, then the 6M146-04 FE-100TX Fast Ethernet Interface Module
simply adjusts to 10 Mbps operation.
When Auto-Negotiation is supported at both ends of a link, the two
devices dynamically adjust to full or half duplex operation based on the
maximum capability that can be reached between the two devices. If the
device connected to the 6M146-04 cannot auto-negotiate, the 6M146-04
Fast Ethernet Interface Module operates according to the capabilities of
the other device.

6M146-04 User’s Guide
6M146-04 Overview
1.3.4
Management
Management of the 6M146-04 is accomplished using Local Management
tools or remote SNMP management stations. Local Management is
accessible through the RS232 COM port on the front panel using a local
VT100 terminal, or a remote VT100 terminal via a modem connection,
and in-band via a Telnet connection. In-band remote management is
possible through any SNMP compliant Network Management Software.
1.3.5
Switching Options
The 6M146-04 provides IEEE 802.1D switching, IEEE 802.1Q
switching, or SecureFast Switching Virtual Network Services between the
two Fast Ethernet Interface Modules and High Speed Interface Modules
(HSIMs).
SecureFast and 802.1Q switching allow for migration to Virtual Network
technologies without requiring the replacement of existing equipment.
1.3.6
Standards Compatibility
The 6M146-04 is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3 standard. The
optional Fast Ethernet Interface Modules are fully compliant with the
IEEE 802.3u standard. The 6M146-04 provides IEEE 802.1D Spanning
Tree Algorithm (STA) support to enhance the overall reliability of the
network and protect against “loop” conditions. It also supports a wide
variety of industry standard MIBs including RFC 1213 (MIB II),
RFC 1271 (RMON), RFC 1317 (RS232 MIB), RFC 1493 (Bridge MIB),
RFC 1354 (FIB MIB), and RFC 1573 (Evolution of MIB II Interfaces). A
full suite of Cabletron Systems Enterprise MIBs provide a wide array of
statistical information to enhance troubleshooting.
1.3.7
Year 2000 Compliance
The 6M146-04 has an internal clock that can maintain the current time
and date beyond the year 1999.
1.3.8
LANVIEW Diagnostic LEDs
LANVIEW diagnostic LEDs serve as an important troubleshooting aid by
providing an easy way to observe the status of individual ports and overall
network operations. Chapter 4 provides details about the 6M146-04
LANVIEW LEDs.
6M146-04 User’s Guide

Chapter 1: Introduction
1.3.9
Runtime IP Address Discovery
This feature enables the 6M146-04 to automatically accept an IP address
from a BootP server on the network into NVRAM without requiring the
user to enter an IP address through Local Management.
When the 6M146-04 is connected to the network and powered up,
Runtime IP Address Discovery (RAD) checks the 6M146-04 for an IP
address. If one has not yet been assigned, RAD checks to see if any of the
6M146-04 interfaces has a link. If so, RAD sends out Reverse Address
Resolution Protocol (RARP) and BootP requests to obtain an IP address
from a BootP or RARP server on the network.
The RAD requests start out at an interval of 1 second and double after
every transmission until an interval of 300 seconds is reached. At this
point, the interval remains at 300 seconds. The RAD requests continue
until an IP address is received from a BootP or RARP server, or an IP
address is entered using Local Management.
1.4
LOCAL MANAGEMENT FEATURES
Local Management provides the tools that allow management of the
6M146-04, the Fast Ethernet Interface Modules, all HSIMs, and the
6C105 chassis. Local Management for the 6M146-04 provides the
features detailed in Sections 1.4.1 through 1.4.6.
1.4.1
Distributed Chassis Management
From a management perspective, the 6C105 SmartSwitch 6000 chassis
can be viewed as a single entity with a single IP address. Its management
functions are distributed to all modules. This means a single module in
the chassis, such as the 6M146-04, can be used to manage the entire
chassis, and any other attached module through Local Management,
SNMP, or Telnet applications.
1-6
6M146-04 User’s Guide
Local Management Features
1.4.2
Remote Monitoring (RMON)
The 6M146-04 supports all Ethernet RMON groups, which include
Statistics, Alarms, Events and History. These groups are enabled on all
ports by default.
Cabletron Systems RMON Actions is a vendor specific extension of
RMON and provides the ability to set an “Action” on any SNMP MIB
variable. The Action can be triggered by any RMON Event and/or Alarm.
An example of an Action would be to turn off a MIB-2 interface if a
broadcast threshold is crossed.
1.4.3
Broadcast Suppression
Broadcast Suppression allows a user to set a desired limit of receive
broadcast frames per port/per second to be forwarded out the other ports
on the module up to the set limit. Any broadcast frames above this
specified limit are dropped. In the event that broadcast frames are being
suppressed, multicast and unicast frames continue to be switched.
1.4.4
Port Redirect Function
The port redirect function, also referred to as “Port Mirroring,” is a
troubleshooting tool used to map traffic from a single source port or
multiple source ports to a destination port(s) within the chassis. This
feature functions at the bit level, which allows all packets, including those
with errors, to be copied and sent to an analyzer or RMON probe. The
analyzer or RMON probe will see the data as if it is directly connected to
the LAN segment of the source port(s).
1.4.5
SmartTrunk
SmartTrunk, also referred to as SmartTrunking, is Cabletron Systems’
terminology for load balancing or load sharing. SmartTrunk technology
provides an easy-to-implement mechanism to group, or aggregate,
multiple physical links together to scale the backbone bandwidth beyond

Chapter 5: Local Management
Subnet Mask (Modifiable)
NOTE
Some firmware versions do not support the changing of the
chassis subnet mask from the default value. Refer to the
Release Notes to ensure that the Subnet Mask field is
modifiable.
Displays the subnet mask for the chassis. A subnet mask “masks out” the
network bits of the IP address by setting the bits in the mask to 1 when the
network treats the corresponding bits in the IP address as part of the
network or subnetwork address, or to 0 if the corresponding bit identifies
the host. The 6C105 chassis automatically uses the default subnet mask
that corresponds to the IP class that was entered in the IP field.
Section 5.7.2 describes how to change the subnet mask from the default
value.
Chassis Date (Modifiable)
Contains a value that the chassis recognizes as the current date. When the
chassis date is modified and saved all interface modules installed in the
chassis are set to this date. To set a new chassis date, refer to
Section 5.7.3.
Chassis Time (Modifiable)
Contains a value that the chassis recognizes as the current time. When the
chassis time is modified and saved, all interface modules installed in the
chassis are set to this time. To enter a new time, refer to Section 5.7.4.
Screen Refresh Time (Modifiable)
Contains the rate at which the screens are updated. This setting
determines how frequently (in seconds) information is updated on the
screen. To enter a new update time, refer to Section 5.7.5.
Screen Lockout Time (Modifiable)
Contains the maximum number of minutes that the Local Management
application displays a module’s screen while awaiting input or action
from a user. For example, if the number 5 is entered in this field, the user
has up to five minutes to respond to each of the specified module’s Local
Management screens. In this example, after five minutes of “idleness” (no
input or action), the terminal “beeps” five times, the Local Management
application terminates the session, and the display returns to the Password
screen. To enter a new lockout time, refer to Section 5.7.6.

is based on which interface module installed in the chassis has been
operating for the longest period of time.
Operational Mode (Toggle)
This field allows the user to set all modules in the chassis to operate as an
IEEE 802.1Q switch (802.1Q SWITCHING) or a traditional switch
(802.1D SWITCHING). In 802.1D SWITCHING mode, the Fast Ethernet
Interface Modules and HSIMs are bridged to each other. When the
operational mode is set to 802.1Q SWITCHING, the 6M146-04 acts as an
IEEE 802.1Q switch. The module is able to increase its switching
functionality by creating and maintaining port based Virtual LANs
(VLANs). To set the operational mode, refer to Section 5.7.7.
5.7.1

PORT REDIRECT FUNCTION SCREEN
The Port Redirect Function screen may only be used if the
operational mode of one or more modules has been set to
802.1D SWITCHING or SECURE FAST VLAN. Refer to the
Release Notes to verify which operational modes support the
Port Redirect Function screen.
The Port Redirect Function screen, Figure 5-14, allows the user to set
each one of the modules in the chassis (1 through 5), and the ports
(interfaces) of the corresponding module installed, as a source or
destination port. A port can be set to have one or more destination port
and chassis module slot numbers. For example, port 1 in module (slot) 1
can be set as a source port with three destinations, ports 2, 3, and 4 in
module (slot) 3. Traffic from port 1 in module 1 is then automatically
redirected to ports 2, 3, and 4 in module 3. Port 1 in module 1 can also
serve as a destination port for other ports and modules. The port redirect
function is extremely useful for troubleshooting purposes, as it allows
traffic to be sent to a particular port(s) where, with the use of an analyzer
or RMON probe, all current traffic from the source port(s) can be
examined.
NOTE
The module number corresponds to the slot number in which
the module resides in the 6C105 chassis (1 through 5).
NOTE
Although traffic from the source port (including, if desired,
errored frames) is sent to the destination port, normal switching
is still performed for all frames on the source port.
To access the Port Redirect Function screen from the Chassis Menu
screen, use the arrow keys to highlight the PORT REDIRECT menu
item and press ENTER. The Port Redirect Function screen, Figure 5-14,
displays.

Module Uptime (Read-Only)
Displays the total time that the module has been operating.
Operational Mode (Modifiable)
This field allows the user to set the 6M146-04 to operate as a traditional
switch (802.1D SWITCHING), an IEEE 802.1Q switch (802.1Q
SWITCHING), or as a Cabletron Systems SecureFast switch
(SECUREFAST VLAN).
In 802.1D Switching mode, the Fast Ethernet Interface Module(s), and
HSIM port(s) are bridged to each other. In 802.1Q Switching mode, the
6M146-04 acts as an IEEE 802.1Q switch, which allows the creation of
port-based VLANs. When the operational mode is set to SECUREFAST
VLAN, the 6M146-04 acts as a SecureFast switch. The 6M146-04 is able
to increase its switching functionality by creating and maintaining Virtual
LANs (VLANs).
For details on how to select the Operational Mode, refer to Section 5.15.9.
Management Mode (Toggle)
This field toggles between DISTRIBUTED and STAND ALONE. The
default field is DISTRIBUTED.
In DISTRIBUTED mode, Local Management is entered via the 6C105
password screen, and all chassis configuration screens are available to the
user. All other modules installed in the chassis that are set for distributed
management may also be accessed via a connection to a single COM port
on one of the modules. The user can then manage all modules within the
chassis and the chassis itself.
NOTE
If the user is establishing a remote connection (i.e., Telnet or
SNMP) using the IP address of the module, the chassis LM
screens will not be available. The LM screens for all other
modules will also be inaccessible. To access ALL local
management screens, the IP address of the chassis must be
used to establish the connection.
In STAND ALONE mode, the module is isolated from the chassis
configuration screens, and the module may not be accessed from a
module that is in DISTRIBUTED mode. This provides additional security
for any module to which the user may wish to restrict access.
For details on how to select the Management Mode, refer to
Section 5.15.10.

SNMP COMMUNITY NAMES SCREEN
The SNMP Community Names menu item allows the user to set
Local/Remote Management community names. Community names act as
passwords to Local/Remote Management and are agents of security
access to the 6M146-04. Access to the 6M146-04 is controlled by
enacting any of three different levels of security authorization (read-only,
read-write, and super-user).
NOTE
If the 6C105 has been assigned community names, it is not
necessary to assign community names to the individual
modules installed in the chassis unless you wish to limit access
to 6C105 chassis screens by assigning different community
names to the module. When this is done, access is limited to
the screens specific to the module the terminal is attached to
and the Local Management session will begin at the Module
Menu screen.
Super-user access gives the user full management privileges,
allows existing passwords to be changed, and all modifiable
MIB objects for the Cabletron Container MIB and Internet
MIB-II to be accessed.
To access the SNMP Community Names screen from the Module
Configuration Menu screen, use the arrow keys to highlight the SNMP

Current Oper. Mode (Read-only)
This field displays the current operating mode of ports 1 and 2.
Depending on the interface installed (100BASE-FX or 100BASE-TX)
this field displays the following:
•
With a 100BASE-FX interface: 100Base-FX or 100Base-FXFD (full
duplex).
•
With a 100BASE-TX interface: Unknown, 10Base-T, 10Base-TFD
(full duplex), 100Base-TX, or 100Base-TXFD (full duplex).
Desired Oper. Mode (Selectable)
This field allows the user to select the desired operational mode for an
interface in port 1 or 2. The field toggles between 100Base-FX and
100Base-FXFD (full duplex) when an FE-100FX or FE-100F3 is
installed. Section 5.22.1 describes how to configure a port with an
FE-100FX or FE-100F3.
NOTE
In normal operation, the port with an FE-100TX installed
automatically establishes a link with the device at the other end
of the segment without requiring user setup. However, LM
provides the option of manually configuring that port.
If an FE-100TX is installed, the field toggles to Auto-Negotiation,
10Base-T, 10Base-TFD (full duplex), 100Base-TX, and 100Base-TXFD
(full duplex). In normal operation, the port with an FE-100TX installed is
capable of auto-negotiating the operational mode and no further user
setup is required. Section 5.22.3 describes how to configure an
FE-100TX.
Advertised Ability (Selectable)
During auto-negotiation, the FE-100TX “tells” the device at the other end
of the segment what its capabilities are. The capabilities of a port (1 or 2)
with an FE-100TX installed are 10BASE-T, 10BASE-TFD (full duplex
mode), 100BASE-TX and 100BASE-TXFD (full duplex mode). In
normal operation, with all capabilities enabled, the FE-100TX
“advertises” that it has the ability to operate in any mode. The Network
Manager may choose to set up the port so that only a portion of the
available capabilities are advertised and the others are disabled. For
example, only 100BASE-TX and 100BASE-TXFD might be enabled so
that only devices that operate at 100 Mbps can communicate with that
port. Section 5.22.5 describes how to enable or disable advertised modes.

PORT REDIRECT FUNCTION SCREEN
The Port Redirect Function screen may only be used if the
operational mode of one or more modules has been set to
802.1D SWITCHING or SECURE FAST VLAN. Refer to the
Release Notes to verify which operational modes support the
Port Redirect Function screen.
The Port Redirect Function screen, Figure 5-30, allows the user to set
each one of the ports on the 6M146-04 as a source or destination port. A
port can be set to have one or more destination ports. For example, port 1
can be set as a source port with three destinations, ports 2, 3, and 4.
Traffic from port 1 is then automatically redirected to ports 2, 3, and 4.
Port 1 can also serve as a destination port for other ports. The port redirect
function is extremely useful for troubleshooting purposes, as it allows
traffic to be sent to a particular port(s) where, with the use of an analyzer
or RMON probe, all current traffic from the source port(s) can be
examined.
NOTE
Although all traffic from the source port (including, if desired,
errored frames) is sent to the destination port, normal switching
is still performed for all frames on the source port.
To access the Port Redirect Function screen from the Module Specific

RMON Index (Read-only)
This field displays the current Fast Ethernet interface for which statistics
are being shown. The 6M146-04 has an embedded RMON agent that
gathers statistics for each interface on the module.
Data Source (Read-only)
This field displays the source of the statistics data that is currently being
displayed on the screen. Figure 5-35 shows that the data source for this
RMON index is Interface 1 (port 1) by displaying the name IfIndex.1. If
the screen was displaying RMON statistics for Interface 2 (port 2), the
name displayed would be IfIndex.2.
Owner (Read-only)
This field displays the name of the entity that last configured the device.
Status (Read-only)
The Status field displays the current operating status of the displayed
interface. This field will display “valid” or “invalid”.
Drop Events (Read-only)
This field displays the total number of times that the RMON agent was
forced to discard frames due to the lack of available switch resources.
NOTE
The Drop Events field does not display the number of frames
dropped, it only displays the number of times that the RMON
agent was forced to discard frames.
Collisions (Read-only)
This field displays the total number of collisions that have occurred on
this interface.
Broadcast Pkts (Read-only)
The Broadcast Pkts field displays the total number of good frames that
were directed to the broadcast address. The value of this field does not
include multicast frames.

received that were directed to a multicast address. The value of this field
does not include frames directed to the broadcast address.
CRC Align Errors (Read-only)
This field displays the number of frames with bad Cyclic Redundancy
Checks (CRC) received from the network. The CRC is a 4-byte field in
the data frame that ensures that the data received is the same as the data
that was originally sent.
Undersized Pkts (Read-only)
This field displays the number of frames received whose size was less
than the minimum Ethernet frame size of 64 bytes, not including
preamble, but have a valid CRC.

minimum number of bytes in length or received frames that had a bad
Frame Check Sequence (FCS), were less than 64 bytes in length
(excluding framing bits, but including FCS bytes), and have an invalid
CRC.
NOTE
It is normal for the Fragments field to increment. This is
because the RMON agent increments the field when runts
(undersized frames) are detected (which are normal
occurrences due to collisions) and when noise hits occur.

Figure C-1 6M146-04 Mode Switch
Location/Component Layout
Switch definitions and positions are as follows:
•
Switches 1 through 4 – For Cabletron Systems use only.
•
Switch 5 – COM Port Autobaud. The default (OFF) position enables
Autobaud sensing on the COM port for Local Management sessions.
Changing the switch to the ON position disables Autobaud sensing and
sets the COM port to 9600 baud for Local Management sessions.
•
Switch 6 – Forced BootP. Changing the position of this switch (i.e.,
moving the switch from one position to the other) clears download
information from NVRAM and forces the 6M146-04 to download a
new image file from a BootP server after power to the chassis is
restored, or the reset button is pressed.
NOTE
C-2
After changing the position of switch 6, DO NOT reapply power
to the chassis or reset the module until there is a station acting
as a BootP server, which contains the image file.
6M146-04 User’s Guide
Setting the Mode Switch
•
Switch 6 (continued)– After changing the position of switch 6 and
restarting the module, the 6M146-04 requests a new image download
until it either receives a new image or the RESET button on the front
panel is pressed. When the RESET button is pressed, the 6M146-04
continues trying to contact a BootP server, but will time out in
approximately one minute. If the module times out, the image is
downloaded from its FLASH memory.
•
Switch 7 – Clear NVRAM. Changing the position of this switch resets
NVRAM on either the next power up or the next operation of the front
panel RESET switch. ALL user entered parameters, such as IP
addresses, subnet masks, SNMP traps, and bridging functions are
restored to their factory default settings.
•
Switch 8 – Reset Password/Community Strings. Changing the position
of this switch clears only the user-entered passwords stored in
NVRAM, and restores the default passwords. Once the 6M146-04 is
reset, the passwords can either be reentered or the default passwords
(Public and ENTER) may be used.
NOTE
Do not change the position of switch 8 unless it is necessary to
reset the module super-user configured passwords to their
factory default settings.

To install a Fast Ethernet Interface Module in port slot 1 or 2 of the
6M146-04, proceed as follows:
!
CAUTION
!
CAUTION
The Fast Ethernet Interface Module and the host module are
sensitive to static discharges. Use an antistatic wrist strap and
observe all static precautions during this procedure. Failure to
do so could damage the Fast Ethernet Interface Module or the
host module.
The FE-100F3 uses Class 1 lasers. Do not use optical
instruments to view the laser output. The use of optical
instruments to view laser output increases eye hazard. When
viewing the output optical port, power must be removed from
the network adapter.
1. Remove the coverplate from the port slot where the Fast Ethernet
Interface Module will be installed.
TIP
When installing Fast Ethernet Interface Modules in both port
slots 1 and 2, remove the coverplates from both slot openings.
In the following instructions, the optional module is shown
being installed in port slot 2.
To remove the coverplate, refer to Figure C-3 and proceed as follows:
a. Remove the two screws fastening the coverplate to the standoffs.
Save the screws.
b. Lift and remove the coverplate from the top of the front standoffs.
