System Configuration

This page shows system configuration information.

Ports Configuration

Port configuration ensures access to a switch port based on MAC address, limits the total number of devices using a switch port and protects against MAC flooding attacks.

Port Configuration

In Port Configuration, you can set and view the operation mode for each port.

VLAN Setting

A Virtual LAN (VLAN) is a logical network grouping that limits the broadcast domain, which allows you to isolate network traffic, so that only the members of the same VLAN receive traffic from each other. Basically, creating a VLAN is logically equivalent to connecting a group of network devices to another Layer 2 switch. However, all the network devices are still plugged into the same switch physically.

Port Segmentation (VLAN) Configuration


Port trunk allows multiple links to be bundled together and act as a single physical link for increased throughput. It provides load balancing, and redundancy of links in a switched inter- network. Actually, the link does not have an inherent total bandwidth equal to the sum of its component physical links. Traffic in a trunk is distributed across an individual link within the trunk in a method called a hash algorithm. The hash algorithm automatically applies load balancing to the ports in the trunk. A port failure within the trunk group causes the network traffic to be directed to the remaining ports. Load balancing is maintained whenever a link in a trunk is lost or returned to service.

Aggregation / Trunking Configuration

To assign a port to a trunk, click on the required trunk number, then click Apply.

Link Aggregation (LACP)

IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) increases bandwidth by automatically aggregating several physical links together as a logical trunk and providing load balancing and fault tolerance for uplink connections.

LACP Port Configuration

Raid Spanning Tree

IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning tree protocol (LACP) provides a loop-free network and redundant links to the core network with rapid convergence to ensure faster recovery from failed links, enhancing overall network stability and reliability.

RSTP System Configuration

RSTP Port Configuration


802.1X provides port-based authentication, which involves communication between a supplicant, authenticator, and authentication server. Port refers to a single point of attachment to the LAN infrastructure. Supplicant is often software on a client device, such as a laptop; authenticator is a network device, such as an Ethernet switch or wireless access point; authentication server is typically a host running software supporting the RADIUS and EAP protocols.

Port-based Network access control (PNAC) ensures that all the users are authorized before being granted an access to the network. User authentication is carried out using any standard-based RADIUS server.

802.1X Configuration

IGMP Snooping

IGMP Snooping is the process of listening to IGMP network traffic. IGMP Snooping allows a layer 2 switch to “listen in” on the IGMP conversation between hosts and routers by processing the layer3 IGMP packets sent in a multicast network.

When IGMP Snooping is enabled, it analyzes all IGMP packets between hosts connected to the switch and multicast routers in the network. When a switch hears an IGMP report from a host for a given multicast group, the switch adds the host’s port number to the multicast list for that group. When the switch hears an IGMP Leave, it removes the host’s port from the table entry. It prevents flooding of IP multicast traffic, and limits bandwidth intensive video traffic to the subscribers only.

IGMP Configuration

Port Mirroring

Port Mirroring is used on a network to send a copy of network packets seen on one switch port (or an entire VLAN) to a network monitoring connection on another switch port. This is commonly used for network appliances that require monitoring of network traffic, such as an intrusion-detection system.

Mirroring Configuration

QoS Setting

In QoS Mode, select QoS Disabled, 802.1p, or DSCP to configure the related parameters.

QoS Configuration

QoS Mode: QoS Disabled

When the QoS Mode is set to QoS Disabled, the following table is displayed.

QoS Mode: 802.1p

Packets are prioritized using the 802.1p field in the VLAN tag. This field is three bits long, representing the values 0 - 7. When the QoS Mode is set to 802.1p, the 802.1p Configuration table appears, allowing you to map each of the eight 802.1p values to a local priority queue (low, normal, medium or high). The default settings are shown below.

When the QoS Mode is set to 802.1p, the 802.1p Configuration table is displayed as shown below.

QoS Mode: DSCP

DSCP: Packets are prioritized using the DSCP (Differentiated Services Code Point) value. The Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) is a six-bit field that is contained within an IP (TCP or UDP) header. The six bits allow the DSCP field to take any value in the range 0 - 63. When QoS Mode is set to DSCP, the DSCP Configuration table is displayed, allowing you to map each of the DSCP values to a hardware output queue (low, normal, medium or high). The default settings map all DSCP values to the high priority egress queue.

You can use the Prioritize Traffic drop-down list to quickly set the values in the DSCP Configuration table to a common priority queue. Use Custom if you want to set each value individually.

When the QoS Mode is set to DSCP, the DSCP Configuration table is displayed as shown below.

Filter Configuration

Administrators can easily assign IP addresses to the ports of the switch. Press Apply button after you make the changes.

Source IP Filter:

Mode: There are three modes, by default it’s “disabled”

For example:

1. IP Address:, IP Mask:; Network address 192.168.3.x (254 IP Addresses) can be forwarded on this port

2. IP Address:, IP Mask:; Only IP can be forwarded on the port.

Rate Limit Configuration

Select the Port number.

Policer: Set up the ingress bandwidth limit. Incoming traffic is discarded if the rate exceeds the value entered. Pause frames are also generated if flow control is enabled. The format of the packet limits to unicast, broadcast and multicast. Valid value of Port 1-18 is 128-3968 kbps. Default: No Limit

Shaper: Set up the egress bandwidth limit. Outgoing traffic is discarded if the rate exceeds the value entered. Pause frames are generated if flow control is enabled. The format of the packet limits to unicast, broadcast and multicast. Valid value of Port 1-18 is 128-3968. Default: No limit

Storm Control

Broadcast storms may occur when a device on your network is malfunctioning, or if application programs are not well designed or properly configured. If there is too much broadcast traffic on your network, performance can be severely degraded or everything can come to complete halt.

You can protect your network from broadcast storms by setting a threshold for broadcast traffic for each port. Any broadcast packets exceeding the specified threshold are dropped then.

Storm Control Configuration

Storm control is used to block unnecessary multicast and broadcast frames that reduce switch’s performance. When the function is enabled and Storm Control rate settings are detected as exceeded, the unnecessary frames are dropped. There are five types of traffic which can be rate limited, including ICMP Rate, Learn Frames Rate, Broadcast Rate, Multicast Rate and Flooded unicast Rate. The setting range is 1k-32768k per second. Default of four Rates is No Limit. 

After completing the function's setting, press Apply button.
