mac-address

To modify the default MAC address of an interface to some user-defined address, use the mac-address command in interface configuration mode. To return to the default MAC address on the interface, use the no form of this command.

mac-address ieee-address

no mac-address ieee-address

Syntax Description

ieee-address

48-bit IEEE MAC address written as a dotted triple of four-digit hexadecimal numbers.


Defaults

The interface uses a default MAC address that is derived from the base address stored in the electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM).

Command Modes

Interface configuration

Usage Guidelines

Be sure that no other interface on the network is using the MAC address that you assign.

There is a known defect in earlier forms of this command when the Texas Instruments Token Ring MAC firmware is used. This implementation is used by Proteon, Apollo, and IBM RTs. A host using a MAC address whose first two bytes are zeros (such as a Cisco router) will not properly communicate with hosts using that form of this command of TI firmware.

There are two solutions. The first involves installing a static Routing Information Field (RIF) entry for every faulty node with which the router communicates. If there are many such nodes on the ring, this may not be practical. The second solution involves setting the MAC address of the Cisco Token Ring to a value that works around the problem.

This command forces the use of a different MAC address on the specified interface, thereby avoiding the Texas Instrument MAC firmware problem. It is up to the network administrator to ensure that no other host on the network is using that MAC address.

Examples

The following example sets the MAC layer address, where xx.xxxx is an appropriate second half of the MAC address to use:

interface tokenring 0
 mac-address 5000.5axx.xxxx

The following example changes the default MAC address on the interface to 1111.2222.3333:

Router# configure terminal

Router(config)# interface fastethernet 2/1/1

Router(config-if)# mac-address 1111.2222.3333

Command
Description

show interfaces fastethernet

Displays information about the Fast Ethernet interfaces.

show interfaces gigabitethernet

maximum-lus

To limit the number of logical unit (LU) control blocks that will be allocated for the TN3270 server, use the maximum-lus command in TN3270 server configuration mode. To restore the default value, use the no form of this command.

maximum-lus number

no maximum-lus

Syntax Description

number

Maximum number of LU control blocks allowed. The allowed range is from 0 to 32000. However, the practical upper limit for concurrently operating TN3270 sessions depends on the hardware and usage characteristics. The default is 2100.


Defaults

Because of the license structure, the default is 2100, which represents the limit of the lower-priced license (2000) plus a 5 percent buffer. If you configure a value greater than the default, a license reminder is displayed.

This command was introduced.

12.2(33)SRA

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SRA.

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

The maximum-lus command is valid only on the virtual channel interface. Although the value may be varied at any time, reducing it below the current number of LU control blocks will not release those blocks until a physical unit (PU) is inactivated by Deactivate Physical Unit (DACTPU) or by using the no pu command.

If the number of LUs in use reaches 94 percent of the current setting, a warning message is displayed on the console. To prevent redundant messages, the threshold for generating such messages is raised for a period.

The TN3270 server attempts to allocate one LU control block for each LU activated by the hosts. In the case of dynamic definition of dependent LU (DDDLU) the control block is allocated when the client requests the LU, in anticipation of an activate logical unit (ACTLU) from the system services control points (SSCP) host.

By limiting the number of LU control blocks allocated, you can make sure enough memory is available to support other Cisco Mainframe Channel Connection (CMCC) functions. The control blocks themselves take about 1K bytes per LU. During session activity, a further 2K per LU may be needed for data. On a Channel Interface Processor (CIP), 32 MB of memory will support 4000 LUs. To support more than 4000 LUs, we recommend 64 MB of memory. On an XCPA, 8 MB of memory supports 1000 LUs.

Examples

The following example allows 5000 LU control blocks to be allocated:

maximum-lus 5000

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

This command is configured on the virtual interface of a Channel Interface Processor (CIP), and the physical interface of a Channel Port Adapter (CPA). If you do not configure this parameter on the CMCC adapter, then the limit of LLC2 sessions is 256.

This command will fail if not enough memory is available on the CMCC adapter to support the specified number of LLC2 sessions.


Note A value of 0 sets the maximum number of LLC2 sessions to the default value of 256. In this case, the value does not appear in your configuration when you use the show run command.


Examples

The following example limits the maximum number of LLC2 sessions to 212:

max-llc2-sessions 212

multiring

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

Level 3 routers that use protocol-specific information (for example, Novell IPX or XNS headers) rather than MAC information to route datagrams also must be able to collect and use RIF information to ensure that they can send datagrams across a source-route bridge. The software default is to not collect and use RIF information for routed protocols. This allows operation with software that does not understand or properly use RIF information.


Note When you are configuring DLSw+ over FDDI, the multiring command supports only IP and IPX.


The multiring command allows for per-protocol specification of the interface's ability to append RIFs to routed protocols. When it is enabled for a protocol, the router will source packets that include information used by source-route bridges. This allows a router with Token Ring interfaces, for the protocol or protocols specified, to connect to a source-bridged Token Ring network. If a protocol is not specified for multiring, the router can route packets only to nodes directly connected to its local Token Ring.

Examples

The following example enables IP and Novell IPX bridging on a Token Ring interface. RIFs will be generated for IP frames, but not for the Novell IPX frames.

! commands that follow apply to interface token 0
interface tokenring 0
! enable the Token Ring interface for IP

Usage Guidelines

As soon as the NCIA server is configured, it begins running. If an NCIA server is configured and the configuration is stored in the NVRAM of the router, when the router boots up, the server is started automatically. Issuing the ncia start command when a server is already running causes the router to display the message:

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

You must use the ncia server command to configure an NCIA server on the router before using the ncia client command to configure an NCIA client.

The purpose in configuring a client is so the NCIA server can connect outward to a client. When an end station on the LAN side tries to connect to a client, the end station sends an explorer. When the server receives this explorer, the server tries to match the MAC address in the client database. If it finds a match, the server then connects to that client. If the ability for the server to connect outward to clients is not needed, there is no reason to configure any clients.

Each client is assigned a MAC address from the pool created by the ncia server command. There are two exceptions to this guideline:

A MAC address outside the pool created by the ncia server command can be defined in the ncia client command.

When a client configured with a MAC address outside the pool connects to the server, the client's configured MAC address is used, rather than allocating a new one from the pool.

If a client has its own MAC address, it uses that address.

The MAC address is recognized during the "capability exchange" period when the client establishes a session with the NCIA server. Normally, it is not necessary to configure any client. The server accepts a connection from any unconfigured client. If the unconfigured client does not have its own MAC address, a MAC address from the pool will be assigned to it. If the unconfigured client has its own MAC address, that MAC address is used. If the client has its own MAC address and it is configured using the ncia client command, the two MAC addresses must match; otherwise, the connection will not be established.

If you do not specify the all keyword as the supported traffic type when you configure an NCIA client, the client only supports only SNA traffic.

Examples

The following example configures an NCIA client on a router:

ncia client 1 10.2.20.5 1111.2222.3333

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

Before configuring an NCIA server, you must use the dlsw local-peer command to configure a data-link switching plus (DLSw+) local peer on this router. Depending on your network design, you may need to use the ncia client command to configure an NCIA client on this router (optional), or use the ncia rsrb command to configure an remote source-route bridging (RSRB) ring to associate with this router (optional).

If you use the inbound-only keyword, there is no need to configure any NCIA clients (the server does not make out-going connections).

In a downstream physical unit (DSPU) configuration, before a client can establish a connection to a downstream physical unit (PU), such as a PC or workstation, the MAC address of the server (server-virtual-mac-address) must be defined at the PC or workstation as the destination MAC address. This MAC address appears as the server MAC address in the output of the show ncia circuits command.

Examples

The following example configures an NCIA server on a Cisco router:

ncia server 1 10.2.20.4 4000.3174.0001 4000.0000.0001 128 keepalive 0 tcp_keepalive 0

Syntax Description

name

Name of the access list being defined.

permit

Permits the condition.

deny

Denies the condition.

offset

Decimal number indicating the number of bytes into the packet where the byte comparison should begin. An offset of zero points to the very beginning of the NetBIOS header. Therefore, the NetBIOS delimiter string (0xFFEF), for example, begins at offset 2.

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

For offset pattern matching, the byte pattern must be an even number of hexadecimal digits in length.

The byte pattern must be no more than 16 bytes (32 hexadecimal digits) in length.

As with all access lists, the NetBIOS access lists are scanned in order.

You can specify a wildcard character in the byte string indicating that the value of that byte does not matter in the comparison. This is done by specifying two asterisks (**) in place of digits for that byte. For example, the following command would match 0xabaacd, 0xab00cd, and so on:

netbios access-list bytes marketing permit 3 0xab**cd

Examples

The following example shows how to configure for offset pattern matching:

netbios access-list bytes marketing permit 3 0xabcd
 
   

In the following example, the byte pattern would not be accepted because it must be an even number of hexadecimal digits:

netbios access-list bytes marketing permit 3 0xabc 
 
   

In the following example, the byte pattern would not be permitted because the byte pattern is longer than 16 bytes in length:

netbios access-list bytes marketing permit 3 00112233445566778899aabbccddeeff00
 
   

The following example would match 0xabaacd, 0xab00cd, and so on:

netbios access-list bytes marketing permit 3 0xab**cd
 
   

The following example deletes the entire marketing NetBIOS access list named marketing:

no netbios access-list bytes marketing
 
   

The following example removes a single entry from the list:

no netbios access-list bytes marketing deny 3 0xab**cd
 
   

In the following example, the first line serves to deny all packets with a byte pattern starting in offset 3 of 0xab. However, this denial would also include the pattern 0xabcd because the entry permitting the pattern 0xabcd comes after the first entry:

netbios access-list bytes marketing deny 3 0xab
netbios access-list bytes marketing permit 3 0xabcd

netbios access-list host

To assign the name of the access list to a station or set of stations on the network, use the netbios access-list host command in global configuration mode. The NetBIOS station access list contains the station name to match, along with a permit or deny condition. To remove either an entire list or just a single entry from a list, depending upon the value given for pattern argument, use the no form of this command.

netbios access-list host name {permit | deny} pattern

no netbios access-list host name {permit | deny} pattern

Syntax Description

name

Name of the access list being defined.

permit

Permits the condition.

deny

Denies the condition.

pattern

A set of characters. The characters can be the name of the station, or a combination of characters and pattern-matching symbols that establish a pattern for a set of NetBIOS station names. This combination can be especially useful when stations have names with the same characters, such as a prefix. Table 15 in the "Usage Guidelines" section explains the pattern-matching symbols that can be used.

Usage Guidelines

Table 15 explains the pattern-matching characters that can be used.

Table 15 Station Name Pattern-Matching Characters 

Character
Description

*

Used at the end of a string to match any character or string of characters.

?

Matches any single character. If this wildcard is used as the first letter of the name, you must precede it with a Cntl-V key sequence. Otherwise it will be interpreted by the router as a request for help.


Examples

The following example specifies a full station name to match:

netbios access-list host marketing permit ABCD
 
   

The following example specifies a prefix where the pattern matches any name beginning with the characters DEFG:

!The string DEFG itself is included in this condition.
netbios access-list host marketing deny DEFG*
 
   

The following example permits any station name with the letter W as the first character and the letter Y as the third character in the name. The second and fourth character in the name can be any character. This example would allow stations named WXYZ and WAYB; however, stations named WY and WXY would not be allowed because the question mark (?) must match specific characters in the name:

netbios access-list host marketing permit W?Y?
 
   

The following example illustrates how to combine wildcard characters. In this example the marketing list denies any name beginning with AC that is not at least three characters in length (the question mark [?] would match any third character). The string ACBD and ACB would match, but the string AC would not:

netbios access-list host marketing deny AC?
 
   

In the following example, a single entry in the marketing NetBIOS access list is removed:

no netbios access-list host marketing deny AC?*
 
   

In the following example, the entire marketing NetBIOS access list is removed:

no netbios access-list host marketing

Usage Guidelines

To specify an entry in the static name cache, first specify a Routing Information Field (RIF) that leads to the server's MAC address. The Cisco IOS software displays an error message if it cannot find a static RIF entry for the server when the NetBIOS name-cache entry is attempted or if the server's type conflicts with that given for the static RIF entry.


Note The names are case sensitive; therefore "Cc" is not the same as "cC."


Examples

The following example indicates the syntax usage of this command if the NetBIOS server is accessed locally:

source-bridge ring-group 2
 rif 0220.3333.4444 00c8.042.0060 tokenring 0

Usage Guidelines

Along with the path command, the offload backup command provides a quick way to configure an offload backup group.

Offload devices provide IP connectivity to a mainframe while offloading a large part of the TCP/IP processing to the CMCC adapter. Not every mainframe TCP/IP stack supports offload.

The offload command in IP host backup configuration mode uses the same underlying configuration parameters as the claw command in IP host backup configuration mode.

Examples

The following examples show two methods for entering the same IP host backup group information. The first group of commands is the long form, using the offload interface configuration command. The second group is the shortcut, using the path interface configuration command and an offload IP host backup configuration command.

Long form:

offload c000 00 10.92.10.5 sysa router1 tcpip tcpip tcpip api backup
offload c100 00 10.92.10.5 sysa router1 tcpip tcpip tcpip api backup

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

Configure the offload alias command after you configure TCP/IP offload support on a CMCC adapter.

You can configure up to 8 different alias IP addresses for each real IP address of an offload device. You can assign the same alias IP address to multiple real IP addresses.

Examples

The following example configures TCP/IP offload support on a CMCC adapter for a host located at real IP address 10.10.21.3 with an alias IP address of 10.2.33.88:

interface channel 3/1
 offload E180 80 10.10.21.3 IPCLUST IPCLUST TCPIP TCPIP TCPIP API
 offload alias 10.10.21.3 10.2.33.88

Command
Description

name (primary)

Configures an Offload device (read and write subchannel) for communication with a mainframe TCP/IP stack in offload mode and also configures individual members of an Offload backup group for the IP Host Backup feature.

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

The pool and allocate lu commands enable the TN3270 server to know the relationships between screen and printer LUs. These commands are an alternative to the logical unit (LU) nailing feature that allows clients to be nailed to LUs.

The pool command is configured in the TN3270 scope. The pool command provides the pool names and the definitions of the number of screens and printers in one logical cluster. Each pool statement must have a unique pool name.

The TN3270 server validates pool names when configuring a pool name and when processing the name received on a CONNECT request from the client. The TN3270 server rejects an invalid name and truncates the name received in the CONNECT request from the client to eight characters or at an invalid character (whichever comes first) when processing the CONNECT request.

When using a pool command to create a cluster, use a combination of the following values in the layout-spec-string argument:

s (screen)

p (printer)

a (any, or wildcard) (refers to a printer or a screen)

Examples

Use the following format to define the layout-spec-string argument, where the decimal-num argument is a decimal number from 1 to 255:

pool poolname cluster layout {decimal-nums}{decimal-nump}{decimal-numa}
 
   

The total sum of the numbers must be less than or equal to 255. No spaces are used between the entries in the layout-spec-string argument. The default is 1a, which defines one screen or one printer. A screen, printer, or a wildcard definition cannot be followed by a definition of the same type. A screen definition can be followed only by a printer or wildcard. Similarly, a printer definition can be followed only by a wildcard or a screen definition.

The following are examples of invalid layout-spec-string values, and the corresponding corrected specification:

A layout-spec-string of 3s6s is invalid. The correct specification is 9s.

A layout-spec-string of 3s6p7a8a is invalid. The correct specification is 3s6p15a.

A layout-spec-string of 255s10p is invalid. Although the decimal number for any portion of the layout-spec-string can be from 1 to 255, the total number across all parameters cannot exceed 255. To correct this example, you can reduce the screens to 245 as 245s10p.

The combination of a screen, printer, and wildcard constitute a group. The layout-spec-string argument can support a maximum of four groups.

Consider the following example:

pool CISCO cluster layout 2s3p4a5s6a7s8p9s
 
   

There are four groups in this definition: 2s3p4a, 5s6a, 7s8p and 9s.

Pools must be defined before any pool references under the listen points are defined. Also, pools must be defined before they are referenced by other statements in the configuration. Failure to define the pool before it is referenced will cause the referencing configuration to be rejected.

Pools that are deleted (using the no form of the command) will cause all statements referencing the pool to be deleted.

The following criteria apply to the creation of pool names and local addresses:

Pool and LU names must be unique; they cannot be identical.

Local address ranges for pools must not overlap.

Local address ranges for LU pools must not overlap with the existing client nailing configuration.

Pool configurations made while LUs are in use do not affect the current LU configuration.

The following example uses the pool command to create two pools, pcpool and unixpool:

tn3270-server
 pool pcpool cluster layout 4s1p
 pool unixpool cluster layout 49s1p
listen-point 10.20.30.40
 client ip 10.10.10.2 pool pcpool
 pu PU1 91903315 dlur
  allocate lu 1 pool pcpool clusters 50
 pu PU2 91903345 dlur
  allocate lu 1 pool unixpool clusters 5
 
   

In this example, the pcpool contains a cluster of 4 screens and 1 printer per cluster. The total number of devices in a cluster cannot exceed 255, therefore the pcpool contains a total of 50 clusters with each cluster containing 5 LUs. Note that the remaining 5 LUs automatically go to the generic pool.

The unixpool contains 49 screens and 1 printer per cluster. The total number of devices in a cluster cannot exceed 255, therefore the unixpool contains a total of 5 clusters with each cluster containing 50 LUs. Again, note that the last 5 LUs automatically go to the generic pool.

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

The preferred-nnserver command is valid only on the virtual channel interface. Fully qualified names consist of two case-insensitive alphanumeric strings, separated by a period. However, for compatibility with existing Advanced Peer-to-Peer Networking (APPN) products, including virtual telecommunications access method (VTAM), the characters "#" (pound), "@" (at), and "$" (dollar) are allowed in the fully qualified name strings. Each string is from one to 8 characters long; for example, RA12.NODM1PP. The portion of the name before the period is the network entity title (NET) ID and is shared between entities in the same logical network.

When no preferred server is specified, the Dependent Logical Unit Requestor (DLUR) will request NN server support from the first suitable node with which it makes contact. If refused, it will try the next one, and so on.

If a preferred server is specified, then DLUR will wait a short time to allow a link to the preferred server to materialize. If the preferred server is not found in that time, any suitable node can be used.

DLUR will not relinquish the current NN server merely because the preferred server becomes available.

Examples

The following example selects SYD.VMX as the preferred NN server:

preferred-nnserver SYD.VMX

Usage Guidelines

If the PU is already created, the pu pu-name command with no arguments places the router in PU configuration mode. In this mode you can modify an existing PU DLUR entity.

A typical usage for the IP address is to reserve an IP address per host application. For example, clients wanting to connect to Time Sharing Option (TSO) specify an IP address that will be defined with PUs that have LOGAPPL=TSO.

Examples

The following example defines three PUs. Two of the PUs share the same IP address and the third PU has a separate IP address:

pu p0  05D99001 192.195.80.40

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

The pu pu-name command is valid only on the virtual channel interface. If the PU is already created, the pu pu-name command with no arguments puts you in listen-point PU configuration mode, where you can modify an existing PU entity.

The pu listen-point command uses values that are defined in two other commands: the lan internal LAN configuration command and the adapter internal LAN configuration command. The lan type and adapter adapter-number values configured on the CIP internal LAN interface are used in the pu command.

For a link via a channel on this Cisco Mainframe Channel Connection (CMCC) adapter, the TN3270 server and the hosts should open different adapters. Using different adapters avoids contention for SAP numbers and is also necessary if you configure duplicate MAC addresses for fallback Cisco Systems Network Architecture (CSNA) or Cisco Multipath Channel (CMPC) access to the host.

Examples

The following example configures the TN3270 server to be active and has one PU, CAPPU1, trying to connect. An LU seed using hexadecimal digits is defined.

tn3270-server
pu CAPPU1 05D18101 token-adapter 3 04 rmac 4000.0501.0001 lu-seed CAP01L##
 
   

The following example shows different adapter numbers configured on the same internal LAN to avoid SAP contention. The host uses SAP 4 on Token Ring adapter 0.

pu (TN3270)

To create a physical unit (PU) entity that has its own direct link to a host and enter PU configuration mode, use the pu command in TN3270 server configuration mode. To remove the PU entity, use the no form of this command.

pu pu-name idblk-idnum ip-address type adapter-number lsap [rmac rmac] [rsap rsap] [lu-seed lu-name-stem]

no pu pu-name

Syntax Description

pu-name

Name that uniquely identifies this PU.

idblk-idnum

Value of this argument must match the IDBLK-IDNUM value defined at the host. The value must be unique within the subarea; however, the TN3270 server generally cannot tell which remote hosts are in which subareas, so the server enforces uniqueness only within the set of Dependent Logical Unit Requestor (DLUR) PUs.

ip-address

IP address that the clients should use as host the IP address to map to logical unit (LU) sessions under this PU.

type

Internal adapter type on the Channel Interface Processor (CIP) card, which corresponds to the value specified in the lan internal LAN configuration command. The currently supported type is token-adapter.

adapter-number

Internal adapter interface on the CIP card, which is the same value specified in the adapter internal LAN configuration command.

lsap

Local service access point (SAP) number in hexadecimal, ranging from 04 to FC. The value must be an even number, and must be unique within the internal adapter so that no other 802.2 clients of that adapter, in the router or in a host, should be allocated the same SAP. Other direct links from TN3270 server direct PUs may use the same value on the internal adapter as long as the remote MAC or SAP is different.

rmac rmac

(Optional) Remote MAC address. The remote MAC address of the form xxxx.xxxx.xxxx hexadecimal, specifying the MAC address of the remote host. If not specified, a loopback link to another SAP on the same internal LAN adapter is assumed.

rsap rsap

(Optional) Remote SAP address. The remote SAP address is a one- or two-character hexadecimal string, ranging from 04 to FC, specifying the SAP address of the remote host. The default is 04.

lu-seed lu-name-stem

(Optional) logical unit (LU) name that the client uses when a specific LU name request is needed. The format is x...x## or x...x### where x...x is an alphanumeric string. When ## is specified, it is replaced with the LU local address in hexadecimal digits to form the complete LU name. When ### is specified, decimal digits are used, padded with leading zeros to make three characters. The first x must be alphabetic and the entire string, including the # symbols, must not exceed eight characters in length.


Defaults

No PU is defined.
The default remote SAP address is 04 (hexadecimal).

lu-seed lu-name-stem

(Optional) Logical unit (LU) name that the client uses when a specific LU name request is needed. The format is x...x## or x...x### where x...x is an alphanumeric string. When ## is specified, it is replaced with the LU local address in hexadecimal digits to form the complete LU name. When ### is specified, decimal digits are used, padded with leading zeroes to make three characters. The first x must be alphabetic (A through Z), or one of the following symbols: $, #, @. The entire string, including the # symbols, must not exceed eight characters in length.

The # symbols are allowed within of the lu-seed string. For example, NC##RAL or USA###NC are valid strings. The # symbols cannot be the first characters in the string. For example, ##CISCO is not valid because the first character of the LU name cannot be a number. But ####DOT is valid because the # symbols in the second, third, and fourth place are used for LU names. There must be at least two to three consecutive # symbols in the string. For example, SH# or CD#D is not valid. A string without # symbols is not valid. For example, CISCONC is not valid. You must not split the # symbols. For example, SH#NC# and SH#D#NC# are not valid.

Note The # sign can signify a value or be used as a symbol.

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

If the PU is already created, the pu dlur command without any arguments starts listen-point PU configuration mode. In this mode you can modify an existing listen-point Dependent Logical Unit Requestor (DLUR) PU entity.

You should define the DLUR before you configure the listen-point DLUR PU.

A typical usage for the IP address is to reserve an IP address for each application. For example, clients wanting to connect to Time Sharing Option (TSO) specify an IP address that is defined with PUs that have LOGAPPL=TSO.

If the lu-seed option is not configured, the PU name is used as the implicit Luseed to generate the LU name. If the lu-seed option is configured, then there is an explicit LU name.

If the explicit LU names conflict, the TN3270 server will reject the PU configuration. If the implicit LU names (that is, the PU names) conflict, the TN3270 server will accept the PU definitions, but the LU names will consist of a modified, truncated version of the PU name and the local address. Valid and invalid LU seed syntax is shown in Table 16.

Examples

The following example defines three PUs in the listen point with an IP address of 172.18.4.18:

tn3270-server
listen-point 172.18.4.18
 pu p0  05D99001 dlur
 pu p1  05D99002 dlur
 pu p2  05D99003 dlur
 
   

The following is an example of the TN3270 server configured with LU pooling. A listen-point PU is configured to define DLUR PUs using the dynamic LU naming. Note that the lu deletion command must be configured with the named option. The PU pu1 is defined with lu-seed abc##pqr. Using hexadecimal numbers for ##, the LU names for this PU are ABC01PQR, ABC02PQR, ABC0APQR.... up to ABCFFPQR. Similarly, the PU pu2 is defined with lu-seed pqr###. Using decimal numbers for ###, the LU names for this PU are PQR001, PQR002... up to PQR255.

The LUs ABC01PQR through ABC32PQR and PQR100 through PQR199 are allocated to the pool SIMPLE. The LUs ABC64PQR through ABC96PQR and PQR010 through PQR035 are allocated to the pool PCPOOL. The remaining LUs are in the generic pool.

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

This command allows Qualified Logical Link Control (QLLC) to accept all inbound X.25 calls, provided that the QLLC Call User Data (CUD) is in the call packet and the destination X.121 address in the call packet matches the serial interface's configured destination X.121 address or subaddress. When this command is used, the source X.121 address need not be configured via an x25 map qllc command for the call to be accepted.

This command is applicable to QLLC support for data-link switching plus (DLSw+), Advanced Peer-to-Peer Networking (APPN), and downstream physical unit (DSPU). It is not applicable to QLLC support for source-route bridging (SRB) and remote source-route bridging (RSRB).

Examples

The following example enables QLLC connectivity for DLSw+ and allows QLLC to accept all inbound X.25 calls. Every X.25 connection request for X.121 address 0308 with QLLC CUD is directed to DLSw+. The first switched virtual circuit (SVC) to be established will be mapped to virtual MAC address 4000.0B0B.0001. If a call comes in with an X.121 address of 0308, the call will be forwarded to MAC address 4001.1161.1234.

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

Any incoming call whose X.121 destination address matches the router's X.121 address and this subaddress will be dispatched to DLSw+ (with an ID.STN IND). If a router is providing several QLLC services, different subaddresses must be used to discriminate between them. Subaddresses can be used even if a remote X.25 device is not explicitly mapped to a specific virtual MAC address. This is most useful when PU 2.1 devices are connecting to a host because the X.25 device's control point name and network name are used to validate the connection, rather than some virtual MAC address. The subaddress is optional. If no subaddress is provided, any incoming call that matches the router's X.121 address will be dispatched to DLSw+. On outgoing calls the subaddress is concatenated to the interface's X.121 address.

When DLSw+ receives a Can You Reach inquiry about a virtual MAC address in the pool, the QLLC code will attempt to set up a virtual circuit to the X.121 address that maps to the virtual MAC address specified. If an incoming call is received, QLLC sends an ID.STN.IND with a virtual MAC address from the pool to DLSw+. If there is no virtual MAC address, then the x25 map qllc or x25 pvc qllc command must provide a virtual MAC address.

The npsi-poll keyword is needed to support PU 2.0 on the partner side that wants to connect to a front-end processor (FEP) on the X.25 side. In a Token Ring or DLSw+ environment, the PU 2.0 will send a null XID to the FEP. If the software forwards this null XID to an X.25 attached FEP, the FEP will assume that it is connecting to PU2.1, and will break off the connection when the PU 2.0 next sends an XID Format 0 Type 2.

Examples

The following commands assign virtual MAC address 1000.0000.0001 to a remote X.25-attached 3174, which is then mapped to the X.121 address of the 3174 (31104150101) in an X.25-attached router:

interface serial 0
 x25 address 3110212011
 x25 map qllc 1000.000.0001 31104150101
 qllc dlsw partner 4000.1161.1234

qllc largest-packet

To indicate the maximum size of the Systems Network Architecture (SNA) packet that can be sent or received on an X.25 interface configured for Qualified Logical Link Control (QLLC) conversion, use the qllc largest-packet command in interface configuration mode. To restore the default largest packet size, use the no form of this command.

qllc largest-packet virtual-mac-addr max-size

no qllc largest-packet virtual-mac-addr max-size

Syntax Description

virtual-mac-addr

Virtual MAC address associated with the remote X.25 device, as defined using the x25 map qllc or x25 pvc qllc interface configuration command. This address is written as a dotted triple of four-digit hexadecimal numbers.

max-size

Maximum size, in bytes, of the SNA packet that can be sent or received on the X.25 interface configured for QLLC conversion. This value must agree with the value configured in the remote SNA device. The valid range is from 0 to 1024.

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

SNA packets that are larger than the largest value allowed on the X.25 connection and are received on the Logical Link Control, type 2 (LLC2) interface are segmented before being sent on the X.25 interface. When a segmented packet is received on the X.25 interface, it is passed immediately to the LLC2 interface, and no effort is made to wait for the segment to be completed.

When the remote X.25 device has a limit on the maximum total length of recombined X.25 segments it will support, you can use the qllc largest-packet command to ensure that the length is not exceeded. For example, a device whose maximum SNA packet size is limited to 265 bytes might not be able to handle a series of X.25 packets that it has to recombine to make a 4, 8, or 17 KM SNA packet, such as one often encounters in an LLC2 environment.

You use the qllc largest-packet command in conjunction with the x25 map qllc and qllc srb commands.


Note Do not configure the maximum SNA packet size on an X.25 interface to be larger than the maximum SNA packet size allowed on the LLC2 interface.


Consult your IBM documentation to set the maximum packet size on the remote X.25 device.

Examples

In the following example, the maximum packet size that has been established for the virtual circuit is used as the maximum packet size that can be sent or received on the X.25 interface:

interface serial 0

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

The qllc npsi-poll command is necessary only when the upstream device is a front-end processor (FEP) running NPSI and the downstream device is a PU 2.

This command is necessary because in a Token Ring or remote source-route bridging (RSRB) environment the LAN attached devices start up by sending a null exchange ID packet upstream. If the Cisco IOS software forwards this null exchange identification (XID) to an X.25-attached FEP, the FEP responds as if it were connecting to a PU2.1 device, and breaks the connection when the PU 2 next sends an XID Format 0 Type 2. The qllc npsi-poll command intercepts any null XID packet that the software receives on the LAN interface, and returns a null XID response to the downstream device. It continues to allow XID Format 3 and XID Format 0 packets through the X.25 device.

Examples

The following example facilitates a connection between a FEP running NPSI and a downstream PU 2.0:

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

When the Cisco IOS software receives an incoming call from the designated X.121 address, it opens a Logical Link Control, type 2 (LLC2) connection with the device at the given MAC address. Both the MAC address of the Token Ring device and the virtual MAC address for the remote X.25 device with which it is to communicate are required in order for the software to initiate connections with the Token Ring device. This allows the Token Ring host to be permanently ready to accept a connection rather than requiring operator action at the host to initiate the connection with the X.25 device.

You must issue the qllc partner command for each remote X.25 device that will communicate with the local Token Ring host through this interface.

You use the qllc partner command in conjunction with the x25 map qllc and qllc srb commands.

Examples

In the following example, the qllc partner command is used to associate the virtual MAC address 0100.0000.0001, as defined in the previous x25 map qllc entry, with the MAC address of the Token Ring host that will communicate with the remote X.25 device:

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

Any number of QLLC conversion connections using the same X.25 serial interface can share a source ring. However, this source ring must be a unique hexadecimal ring number within the source-bridged network.

If the router has only one Token Ring interface and is bridging from the remote X.25 devices to this interface, then the trn value is the number of the ring on that Token Ring interface. If the router has several Token Ring interfaces and interconnects them by means of the source-bridge sdllc-local-ack command, then the trn value is the number of that virtual ring group, as assigned using the source-bridge sdllc-local-ack

Use the qllc srb command to associate the ring number and bridge number that have been assigned to the interface with a virtual ring group of which the interface will be a part. The serial interface appears to be a ring, or source ring number, on a source-route bridge network, and ties in to the virtual ring group, or target ring number. The target ring number provides access to other real rings that have been designated using the source-bridge global configuration command. Note that you can configure QLLC conversion on a router containing no Token Ring interface cards, such as a router connecting a serial-attached device to an X.25 public data network (PDN).

The qllc srb command automatically turns on the Logical Link Control, type 2 (LLC2) process with default values. To change any of the LLC2 parameters (described in the "LLC2 and Synchronous Data Link Control (SDLC) Commands" chapter in the Cisco IOS Bridging and IBM Networking Configuration Guide.), apply their values to the serial interface that has been configured for QLLC conversion. This is done on the serial interface, even though LLC2 does not run on the serial interface, but on the virtual ring associated with the serial interface.

You use the qllc srb command in conjunction with the x25 map qllc command.

Examples

In the following example, the qllc srb command is used to define a virtual ring number of 201 for the remote X.25 device, and an actual or virtual ring number of 100 for the Token Ring interface:

interface serial 0
 encapsulation x25
 x25 address 31102120100
 x25 map qllc 0100.0000.0001 31104150101
 qllc srb 0100.0000.0001 201 100

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

Most QLLC installations do not need the qllc xid configuration command. It is needed only if the remote X.25 device is not configured to send its own XID. This is only possible for a device that is attached via a permanent virtual circuit (PVC). Even so, most devices that are connected via X.25 will send their own XIDs. Use the qllc xid command when the Token Ring host requires login validation for security purposes and the remote X.25 device does not send an XID. The XID value is used to reply to XID requests received on the Token Ring Logical Link Control, type 2 (LLC2) side of the connection. XID requests and responses are usually exchanged before sessions are started. The XID response to the XID request from the Token Ring host will contain the information you configure using the qllc xid command. The host will check the XID response it receives with the IDBLK and IDNUM parameters (configured in virtual telecommunications access method [VTAM]). If they match, the Token Ring host will initiate a session with the router. If they do not match, the host will not initiate a session with the router.

You use the qllc xid command in conjunction with the x25 map qllc and the qllc srb commands.

Examples

In the following example, the X.25 device at X.121 address 31104150101 must use an XID IDBLK of 017 and XID IDNUM of 20001 to access the Token Ring host whose MAC address is associated with the remote X.25 device, as applied using thesdlc partner command:

interface serial 0
 encapsulation x25
 x25 address 31102120100
 x25 map qllc 0100.0000.0001 31104150101

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

You must specify either an interface name or a ring group number to indicate the origin of the RIF. You specify an interface name (for example, tokenring 0) with the interface-name argument, and you specify a ring group number with the ring-group ring keyword and argument. The ring group number must match the number you specified with the source-bridge ring-group command. Ring groups are explained in the "Configuring Source-Route Bridging" chapter of the Bridging and IBM Networking Configuration Guide.

Using the command rif mac-address without any other arguments puts an entry into the RIF cache indicating that packets for this MAC address should not have RIF information.

Do not configure a static RIF with any of the all rings type codes. Doing so causes traffic for the configured host to appear on more than one ring and leads to unnecessary congestion.


Note Input to the source-bridge interface configuration command is in decimal format. RIF displays and input are in hexadecimal format, and IBM source-route bridges use hexadecimal for input. It is essential that bridge and ring numbers are consistent for proper network operation. This means you must explicitly declare the numbers to be hexadecimal by preceding the number with 0x, or you must convert IBM hexadecimal numbers to a decimal equivalent when entering them. For example, IBM hexadecimal bridge number 10 would be entered as hexadecimal number 0x10 or decimal number 16 in the configuration commands. In the displays, these commands always will be in decimal.


Examples

The following example configuration sets up a static RIF:

! insert entry with MAC address 1000.5A12.3456 and RIF of 
! 0630.0081.0090 into RIF cache 
rif 1000.5A12.3456 0630.0081.0090 tokenring 0

Usage Guidelines

A RIF entry is cached based on the MAC address and the interface.

RIF information is maintained in a cache whose entries are aged. A RIF entry can be aged out even if there is active traffic, but the traffic is fast or autonomously switched. Until a RIF entry is removed from the cache, no new information is accepted for that RIF entry.

A RIF entry is refreshed only if a RIF field of an incoming frame is identical to the RIF information of the RIF entry in the cache.

Usage Guidelines

A RIF validation algorithm is used for the following cases:

To decrease convergence time to a new source-route path when an intermediate bridge goes down.

To keep a valid RIF entry in a RIF cache even if a RIF entry is not refreshed either because traffic is fast or autonomously switched, or because there is no traffic.

A directed IEEE TEST command is sent to the destination MAC address. If a response received in the time specified by the rif validate-age command, the entry is refreshed and is considered valid. Otherwise, the entry is removed from the cache. To prevent sending too many TEST commands, any entry that has been refreshed in fewer than 70 seconds is considered valid.

Validation is triggered as follows:

When a RIF entry is found in the cache.

When a RIF field of an incoming frame and the RIF information of the RIF entry is not identical. If, as the result of validation, the entry is removed from the cache, the RIF field of the next incoming frame with the same MAC address is cached.

When the RIF entry is not refreshed for the time specified in the rif timeout command.


Note If the RIF entry has been in the RIF cache for 6 hours, and has not been refreshed for the time specified in the rif timeout command, the entry is removed unconditionally from the cache.



Note The rif validate-enable commands have no effect on remote entries learned over RSRB.
