Configuring the Switch

The 24+4G-Port10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet Web Smart Switch has a Web GUI interface for smart switch configuration. The Switch can be configured through the Web Browser. A network administrator can manage, control and monitor the switch from the local LAN. This section indicates how to configure the Switch to enable its smart functions including:

25

Port Setting (Speed/Disable, Duplex mode, Flow Control and Port base QoS)

Virtual LAN Group setting (VLAN) Trunking

Port Mirroring

System Setting

Device status and Statistic

Login

Before you configure this device, note that when the Web Smart Switch is configured through an Ethernet connection, make sure the manager PC must be set on same the IP network. For example, when the default network address of the default IP address of the Web Smart Switch is192.168.0.1, then the manager PC should be set at 192.168.0.x (where x is a number between 2 and 254), and the default subnet mask is 255.255.255.0.

Open Internet Explorer 5.0 or above Web browser.

Enter IP address http://192.168.0.1 (thefactory-defaultIP address setting) to the address location.

Figure 12.

26

Or through the Web Management Utility, you do not need to remember the IP Address, select the device shown in the Monitor List of the Web Management Utility to settle the device on the Web Browser.

When the following dialog page appears, remain enter the default password "admin" and press Login to enter the main configuration window.

Figure 13.

After entering the password, the main page comes up, the screen will display the device status.

Setup Menu

When the main page appears, find the Setup menu in the left side of the screen (Figure 15). Click on the setup item that you want to configure. There are eleven options:Port Settings, VLAN Settings, Trunk Setting, Mirror Setting, Device Status, Statistic, System Settings, Trap Setting, Password Setting, Backup Setting and Reset Setting as shown in the Main Menu screen.

Figure 15. Setup menu

Configuring Setup Setting

Find that there are four items, including Port Settings, VLAN Settings, Trunk Settings and Mirror Settings in Setup menu.

Port Settings

In Port Settings menu (Figure 16), this page will show each port’s status, press the ID parameter to set each port’s Speed, Flow Control, QoS priority and Link Status. When you need to renew the posted information, press the “Refresh” button.

28

The Link Status in the screen will show the connection speed and duplex mode; else this dialog box will showdown when the port is disconnected.

Figure 16. Port Configuration

To change the port setting, click on the ID parameter to enter to the selected port to configure its Speed/Disable, Flow control and QoS setting.

Figure 17.

29

Speed/Disable:

This setting has six modes—100M Full,100M Half,10M Full,10M Half, Auto and Disable—forspeed or port disable selections.

Flow Control:

This setting determines whether or not the Switch will be handling flow control. Set FlowCtrl toEnable for avoiding data transfer overflow. Or it sets toDisable; there is either no flow control or other hardware/software management.

When the port is set to forced mode, then the flow control will automatically set toDisable.

QoS:

In some ports that need to have a high priority to manage the data transfer, QoS should be change. Set the port’s QoS to high to determine the port will always transfer their data first.

VLAN Settings (Virtual Local Area Network)

Group individual ports into a small “Virtual” network of their own to be independent of the other ports. To add a VLAN group, press “Add Group” button, the new VLAN configuration window will pop out, you can fill in the description in order to describe this VLAN Group, check on the port to be a member to this VLAN Group, and press “Apply” button to execute the setting.

Figure 19. VLAN Group Settings

30

Once you want to modify the VLAN Group, check on the ID parameter, the ID VLAN configuration window will pop out.

Figure 20. VLAN Settings

Trunk Setting

The Trunk function enables to cascade two devices with a double times bandwidth (up to 4000Mbps in full duplex mode).

There is only one selection for the trunk setting, port 25 and port 26, or select “disable” for closing this function.

Figure 21. Trunk Settings

Be sure that the selected trunk setting port must connect to the device with a same VLAN group.

Mirror Setting

Port Mirroring is a method of monitoring network traffic that forwards a copy of each incoming and/or outgoing packet from one port of a network switch to another port where the packet can be studied. It enables the manager to keep close track of switch performance and alter it if necessary.

31

Configuring the port mirroring by assigning a source port from which to copy all packets and a sniffer port where those packets will be sent.

The selection of the sniffer mode is as follow:

TX (transmit) mode: this mode will duplicate the data transmit from the source port and forward to the sniffer port.

RX (receive) mode: this mode will duplicate the data that send to the source and forward to the sniffer port.

Both (transmit and receive) mode: this mode will duplicate both the data transmit from and data that send to the source port, then it will forward to the sniffer port.

Device Status

Click on the “Status” to present the device status on this screen, it will show the System Status, Port Status, VLAN Status, Trunk Status and Mirror Status..

Press “Refresh” when you need to renew the posted information.

Statistic

The Statistic Menu screen will show the status of each port packet count.

System Setting

The System Setting includes the System name, Location name, Login Timeout, IP Address, Subnet Mask and Gateway. Through the Web Management Utility, you can easily recognize the device by using the System Name and the Location Name.

The Login Timeout is to set the idle time-outfor security issue, when there is no action when running the Web Smart Utility and the time is up, you mustre-loginto Web Smart Utility before you set the Utility.

Fill up the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Gateway for the device.
