Configuring an Ethernet Port

Configuring an Ethernet Port

This topic describes how to set the attributes of an Ethernet port. An Ethernet port can be used to carry Ethernet packets or tunnels, depending on different settings of the port attributes. The attributes of an Ethernet port include the general attributes, Layer 2 attributes, Layer 3 attributes, advanced attributes, and flow control.

The application scenario of an Ethernet port depends on the settings of the port attributes. For details, refer to Table 3-307.
Table 3-307  Application scenario of an Ethernet port

NOTE:

When the Ethernet port is used to carry the QinQ Link, the configuration procedure is similar to the configuration procedure when the Ethernet port is used to carry the Ethernet service. In this case, however, the encapsulation types are different. For details, see Setting the Layer 2 Attributes of Ethernet Ports.

Follow the procedure shown in Figure 3-72 to set the attributes of an Ethernet port.

Figure 3-72  Procedure for configuring an Ethernet port

Setting the General Attributes of Ethernet Interfaces

Before you set the Layer 2 and Layer 3 attributes of an Ethernet port, you need to set the general attributes of the corresponding Ethernet port. The general attributes of an Ethernet port define the physical-layer information, such as the port mode, encapsulation type, and maximum frame length.

Prerequisites

You are an NM user with Administrators rights or higher.

Procedure

  1. In the NE Explorer, select an NE and choose Configuration > Packet Configuration > Interface Management > Ethernet Interface from the Function Tree.
  2. Click the Basic Attributes tab.
  3. Select the board and set the parameters as required. For details about the parameters, see Basic Attributes.



    NOTE:
    • When Port Mode is set to Layer 2, Encapsulation Type can be set to Null, 802.1Q, or QinQ.
    • When Port Mode is set to Layer 3, Encapsulation Type can be set to 802.1Q only. In this case, the port can be used to carry the tunnel.

  4. Click Apply. Then, the Operation Result dialog box is displayed, indicating that the operation is successful.
  5. Click Close.

Setting the Layer 2 Attributes of Ethernet Ports

After the Layer 2 attributes of an Ethernet port are set, the port can be used for connecting to the client-side equipment at the edge of an SDH network or for forwarding Ethernet packets within the SDH network. The Layer 2 attributes of an Ethernet port define the related information about the data link layer.

Prerequisites

  • You are an NM user with Administrators rights or higher.
  • In Basic Attributes, Port Mode must be set to Layer 2.

Procedure

  1. In the NE Explorer, select an NE and choose Configuration > Packet Configuration > Interface Management > Ethernet Interface from the Function Tree.
  2. Click the Layer 2 Attributes tab.
  3. Select the port and set the parameters as required. For details about the parameters, see Layer 2 Attributes.



    NOTE:
    • QinQ Type Domain can be set only when Encapsulation Type is QinQ.
    • TAG can be set only when Encapsulation Type is 802.1Q.
    • Default VLAN ID and VLAN Priority can be set only when Encapsulation Type is 802.1Q.

  4. Click Apply. Click OK. Then, the Operation Result dialog box is displayed, indicating that the operation is successful.
  5. Click Close.

Setting the Layer 3 Attributes of Ethernet Ports

When an Ethernet port is used to carry a tunnel, you need to set the Layer 3 attributes of the Ethernet port. The Layer 3 attributes of an Ethernet port define the related attributes of the network layer.

Prerequisites

  • You are an NM user with Administrators rights or higher.
  • In Basic Attributes, Port Mode must be set to Layer 3.

Procedure

  1. In the NE Explorer, select an NE and choose Configuration > Packet Configuration > Interface Management > Ethernet Interface from the Function Tree.
  2. Click the Layer 3 Attributes tab.
  3. Select the board and set the parameters as required. For details about the parameters, see Layer 3 Attributes.



    NOTE:

    When changing the IP address of a port, ensure that the IP address of the port and the IP addresses of the other ports configured with services are not in the same subnet.

  4. Click Apply. Then, the Operation Result dialog box is displayed, indicating that the operation is successful.
  5. Click Close.

Setting the Advanced Attributes of Ethernet Ports

You can set the routine maintenance parameters by setting the advanced attributes of Ethernet ports.

Prerequisites

You are an NM user with Administrators rights or higher.

Procedure

  1. In the NE Explorer, select an NE and choose Configuration > Packet Configuration > Interface Management > Ethernet Interface from the Function Tree.
  2. Click the Advanced Attributes tab.
  3. Select the board and set the parameters as required. For details about the parameters, see Advanced Attributes.
  4. Click Apply. Then, the Operation Result dialog box is displayed, indicating that the operation is successful.
  5. Click Close.

Configuring Flow Control

When the flow control function is enabled, the Ethernet port sends a pause frame to the opposite end and then the opposite end stops transmitting Ethernet packets, if a congestion occurs on the link. As a result, the congestion is prevented.

Prerequisites

You are an NM user with Administrators rights or higher.

Procedure

  1. In the NE Explorer, select an NE and choose Configuration > Packet Configuration > Interface Management > Ethernet Interface from the Function Tree.
  2. Click the Flow Control tab.
  3. Select the board and set the parameters as required. For details about the parameters, see Flow Control.

  4. Click Apply. Then, the Operation Result dialog box is displayed, indicating that the operation is successful.
  5. Click Close.
