Chapter 2

Cabling the Switch

This chapter describes how to connect the cables that you must use with the Switch, including pinouts for local area networks (LAN) connections, and how to read the LEDs when the Switch is powered on.

LAN Speed Selection

The Switch automatically determines the speed of the LAN connection during power-up.To change the speed simply power down the Switch, connect to the desired LAN, and power the unit back up.

LAN Interface

100BASE-TX connections require Category 5,twisted-pairwire. The100BASE-TXspecification supports 100Mbps transmission over two pairs of Category 5twisted-pairEthernet wiring; one pair each for transmit and receive operations.

100 meters is the maximum recommended cable segment length between a 100BASE-TXrepeater and a workstation (due to signal timing requirements). This wiring scheme complies with the EIA 568 wiring standard.

10BASE-T connections can use Category 3, 4, or 5twisted-pairwiring.

3

Connector Pinouts

The LAN connectors on the Switch are RJ-45straight-through.The following illustration shows the Switch connector's10/100BASE-TXpinouts.

Figure 2 10/100BASE-TXPinouts

Optional WAN Interface

The WAN connectors are located on a PCI card that is installed in the switch. Two DB26S connectors provide the signals needed to interface to V.35 equipment. Included in the accessory box are two cables that map the DB26S signals to a standard V.35 connector. The cable pin-outsare shown below.

Cabling the Switch

Note that you will need a DSU/CSU (digital service unit/channel service unit) between the WAN connection and the Switch.

Serial Cable

The serial cable provided with the Switch is a DB9/DB25-to-DB9/DB25.This provides across-over(transmit-to-receiveandreceive-to-transmit).The DB9 connector goes into the Switch and the other DB9 or DB25 connector goes into your workstation or terminal. You should ignore the extra DB25 connection that is attached.

Connecting the Cables

1.Connect the 10/100BASE-TXLANRJ-45connector to the Switch.

2.Connect the power cord to the back of the Switch and to the electrical outlet.

3.Additionally, if you have LAN or WAN cards in Slots 1 through 3, connect those cables (refer to Installing Optional Cards on page 44).

NOTE: Slot 4 is not supported.

Figure 4 Extranet Switch Back View

Bay Networks ships a serial cable with the Switch. You can provide the Switch with a Management IP Address, subnet mask, and default gateway address via the Serial Interface (refer to page 14 for details). Bay Networks, however, recommends that you use the IP Address Configuration Utility diskette for easy initial IP address configuration (refer to page 12).

Understanding the Lights and LEDs

The Power light is green when the power is on; if it is flashing, there is a hardware failure and you should contact Bay Networks.

The Reset light is green, and when it flashes the Switch is either reading or writing to the disk. You can press the Reset button to restart the Switch, however, Bay Networks recommends that you restart the Switch from the System Shutdown display (refer to the Administrator's Guide for details).

Power on the Switch and confirm that the interfaces are cabled properly by examining the two LEDs located adjacent to the RJ-45connector of the LAN port, or the LEDs located on the card panel.

Figure 5 shows the LAN Port LEDs and Figure 6 shows the PCI card 10/100BASE-TXLAN LEDs. Look at the condition of the LEDs, then examine the corresponding LED tables to better understand the indications.

Chapter 3

Assigning a System Identity

This section describes two methods, IP Address Configuration Utility and Serial Interface Configuration Procedure, that allow you to assign a Management IP Address, subnet mask, and optional default gateway address to your Extranet Switch. The Management IP Address is the address that is used for all system services, such as HTTP, FTP, and SNMP. The Management IP Address will enable you to manage the Switch from a Web browser.

Figure 7 shows the choices you have when first configuring your Management IP Address, subnet mask, and default gateway. The IP Address Configuration Utility is on a diskette that comes with your Switch.

Figure 7 Initial Management IP Address Configuration

9

Startup Configuration Requirements

This section provides descriptions of the fields that you must complete with either the IP Address Configuration Utility or the Serial Interface Configuration procedure.

Management IP Address

Enter a Management IP Address for the system. You need this address to manage all system services, such as HTTP, FTP, and SNMP. This address must be accessible from one of the Switch's private physical interfaces. In order to do so, the Management IP Address must map to the same network as one of the private interfaces.

For example, if you are planning on assigning IP address 10.2.3.3 with the subnet mask 255.255.0.0 to the private physical interface, then the Management IP Address must reside in the 10.2 network.

Carefully record the Management IP Address. Later, during the Quick Start or the Guided Configuration, you will be asked to supply IP addresses for the physical interfaces.

Subnet Mask

The Subnet Mask defines how many bits of the IP Address represent the network the device is on and how many bits represent the host’s ID on the network.

The device uses the Subnet Mask to determine which IP Addresses are directly reachable on the network and which must be routed through a gateway. A sample IP Address is 10.2.3.3 with a Subnet Mask of 255.255.0.0. This indicates that all hosts with addresses 10.2.n.n are directly reachable.

Default Gateway

The Default Gateway is where packets are routed onto the private network if there is not a specific route in the routing table to the desired location.

10

Assigning a System Identity

Private and Public Interfaces

The Bay Networks Extranet Switch provides secure access between your local area network (LAN) and Public Data Networks like the Internet. Throughout this document the term Private refers to the LAN within your corporation, and the term Public refers to Public Data Networks. This concept is important because the Public interface accepts only tunneled protocols, while the Private interface accepts both regular (nontunneled) and tunneled protocols. You must be careful to correctly configure each interface of the Switch for proper network security.

The LAN port is configured to be Private by default. Bay Networks recommends that you connect this interface to your corporate LAN. Additional interfaces that are inserted into the expansion slots are set to Public by default.

Private

Indicates that this interface is attached to the internal corporate LAN and accepts regular networking protocols such as TCP/IP, FTP, HTTP, etc. The Private interface also accepts tunneled protocols (e.g., IPsec, PPTP, L2TP, and L2F) that can be used for secure management access to the Switch.

Public

Indicates that this interface is attached to a Public Data Network like the Internet. The Switch rejects nontunneled protocols and only accepts tunneled protocols like IPsec, PPTP, L2TP, and L2F. For diagnostic purposes, the ability to PING the Public interface is also supported.

Assigning a System Identity

11

IP Address Configuration Utility

Bay Networks provides a utility to perform the initial configuration of a Switch.

Requirements

To assign the Switch a Management IP Address with the Bay Networks IP Address Configuration Utility you must have the following:

A PC running Windows 95 or Windows NT with a functioning TCP/IP stack.

The PC must be running on the same subnet as the Switch that is to be configured, and it must have an operational network connection.

If your environment does not match these requirements, then you must use the serial interface configuration.

To test the function of your TCP/IP stack, send a PING command to any host.

Running the IP Configuration Utility

The program "BayNetIP.exe" is on a diskette labeled "IP Address Configuration Utility" that accompanies the Switch. You can copy the utility to your hard disk and execute it from there, or you can load it from the diskette drive. The "BayNetIP.exe" program launches the IP Address Configuration Utility, which allows you to assign a Management IP Address and subnet mask to the Switch. To run "BayNetIP.exe," follow these steps:

1. Insert the diskette into the A: drive and select Start→Run:

a:\BayNetIP.exe

or, open the "My Computer" icon on the desktop and open the "3ò Floppy (A:)" drive, thendouble-clickon the icon:

12

Assigning a System Identity

The following display appears while the program searches for a Bay Networks Switch that has not been configured with a Management IP Address and subnet mask.

Figure 8 Serial Number Search Display

2.The program automatically enters the Serial Number for the first Switch discovered into the table of discovered Switches.

Figure 9 IP Address Configuration Utility Display

3.Assign a Management IP Address and Subnet Mask to the Switch; the Default Gateway address is optional and can be added later (refer to Startup Configuration Requirements on page 10 for descriptions of the required fields).

If you have more than one Switch, click Search to automatically add the additional Switch serial numbers. To verify the Switches that have been discovered, you can refer to the serial number on the bar code on the back of the Switch.
