For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

Bonjour is a service discovery protocol configured on a network device that allows the device to automatically detect the devices and services offered on a network automatically.
This article explains how to configure Bonjour settings on ESW2-550X stackable managed switch.
Step 1. Log in to the web configuration utility and choose Administration > Discovery - Bonjour. The Discovery - Bonjour page opens:
Step 2. Check the Enable check box to enable the Discovery - Bonjour.
Note: Bonjour advertises only on the IP interfaces configured in the Bonjour Discovery Interface Control Table.
Step 3. Click Apply.
The Add Bonjour Discovery Interface Control page opens:
Step 2. Click the desired radio button in the Interface field. The available options are:
• Unit/Slot — The unit identifies the switch, deciding whether it is active or a member in the stack. Unit 1 is active and unit 2 is member. If you are unfamiliar with the terms used, check out Cisco Business: Glossary of New Terms. The slot identifies whether the switch is ESW2-550 or ESW2-550X. Slot 1 is ESW2-550 and slot 2 is ESW2-550X. Choose the desired option from the Unit/Slot drop-down list.
– Port — Choose the desired port from the Port drop-down list.
• LAG — Choose which LAG the bonjour is advertised from the LAG drop-down list. A Link Aggregate Group (LAG) is used to link multiple ports together. LAGs multiply bandwidth, increase port flexibility, and provide link redundancy between two devices to optimize port usage.
• VLAN — Choose the desired VLAN which the bonjour is advertised from the VLAN drop-down list. A VLAN helps a group of hosts to communicate as if they are on the physical network, regardless of their location.
Step 3. Click Apply. The newly configured interface is added to the Bonjour Discovery Interface Control Table as shown:
Step 4. (Optional) To remove the interface from the table check the desired interface and click Delete.
