Smartport Configuration on ESW2-350G Switches
Smartport feature gives switches convenient way to share configuration macros to other connected devices. A Macro is a script of Command Line Interface (CLI) commands configured on an interface for a network device. Smartport macros are different from global macros because Smarport macros are directly applied to the interface either statically or automatically. Auto Smartport waits for a device to be attached to interface before applying macro.
The objective of this document is to explain smartport configuration on ESW2-350G Switches.
• ESW2-350G • ESW2-350G-DC
Step 1. Log in to Switch Configuration Utility and choose Smartport > Properties. The Properties page opens:
Step 2. To enable auto smartport, click the Enable radio button.
• Disable — Disables auto smartport on the switch i.e to detect and assign the rules irrespective of the device connected to the port.
• Enable — Enables auto smartport feature on the switch i.e detect and assign the rules configured with respect to the device connected to the port.
• Enable by Auto Voice VLAN — Smartport features is active if Auto Voice VLAN is configured. It is the default configuration. Auto voice vlan helps to detect the VOIP devices such as IP phones which needs to be placed in the voice vlan to have a proper communication.
Step 3. Check the appropriate smartport detection method checkbok in the Auto Smartport Device Detection Method field.
• CDP — Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) is a Cisco proprietary data link protocol used to share information about directly connected Cisco devices. This option needs to be chosen when the devices used in the network are Cisco devices.
• LLDP — Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) is a vendor-neutral protocol used by network devices to advertise their identity to neighbor devices. This option is to be chosen when the devices used in the network are of different vendors.
Step 4. To choose type of device which Auto Smartport assign macro to the interfaces check the respective check boxes. If unchecked, Auto Smartport do not apply that type of macro to the interface.
• Host —any user PC,Laptop with LLDP capability.
• IP Phone —CDP or LLDP capable IP Phone.
• IP Phone + Desktop — IP phone or Soft IP Phone installed on the desktop.
• Switch — CDP or LLDP enabled switches.
• Router — Layers 3 device with CDP or LLDP feature enabled.
• Wireless Access Point — Layer 2 or Layer 3 wireless Access Points with CDP or LLDP capability.
Step 5. Click Apply.
