The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. 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.

The IPv4 Interface is used for configuring the multiple IP addresses in a port, a LAG or VLAN interface for Device management and routing services. The traffic between devices in the same VLAN is bridged directly through the attached IP subnets. Traffic is routed by the device in layer 3 mode. For every IP address configured on a port or LAG, a VLAN ID from the first unused VID is utilized. VLAN ID assignments start from 4094.
The objective of this document is to show you how to configure the IPv4 Interface page.
Note: Only certain 350G devices have L3 (layer 3) mode enabled on the device. This can only be found by looking at the box your switch came in, or by attempting to configure L3 settings on your device through the configuration interface. If certain L3 settings do not show up in the configuration utility page, it is very likely that your device does not support these features. If your device does not have L3-Mode enabled, you will not be able to configure IPv4 Interface Settings.
Step 1. Log in to the Web configuration utility and choose IP Configuration > IPv4 Management and Interfaces > IPv4 Interface . The IPv4 Interface page opens:
Step 2. Click Enable in the IPv4 Routing field to enable the device to work as a IPv4 router.
Step 3. Click Apply to save the Configuration.
Note: IPv4 interface Tables displays the following details:
• Interface — Displays the type of interface for which the IP Adress is defined.
• IP Address Type — Displays the type of IP Address:
– Static — Displays User defined IP address
– DHCP — Displays IP address received from DHCP Server.
– Default — Displays the default IP Address used to access the web GUI
• IP Address — Displays the IP address for that interface.
• Mask — Displays the Configured IP Address Mask.
• Status — This field displays the results of the IP address Duplication Check. Several options available are:
– Tentative — When there is no result for IP address duplication check, this status is displayed.
– Valid — After the IP address check is completed and when no duplicate is detected, this status is displayed.
– Valid - Duplicated — After the IP address check is completed and a duplicate IP address is detected, this status is displayed.
– Duplicated — When a duplicate IP address is detected for the default IP address, this status is displayed.
– Delayed — When the assignment of IP address is delayed for 60 seconds, this status is displayed.
– Not Received — When DHCP client assigns a dummy IP Address of 0.0.0.0 before the discovery process after which a real address is obtained, this status is displayed.
Step 4. Click Add to create new entry of IPv4 Interface. The Add IP Interface window appears.
Add IP Interface Window:
Step 5. In the Add IP Interface window, at Interface choose the type of interface for which the IP address is to be configured. The available options are:
• Port — The port for which the statistics are to be displayed.
• LAG — Select the required Link Aggregation from the drop-down list which is a collection of multiple parallel network connections of ports residing on the same switch used to increase throughput.
• VLAN — Select the desired Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) from the drop-down list.
In the IP Address Type, Choose from the following options:
• Dynamic IP Address — Choose the Dynamic IP Address radio button to assign the IP Address from a DHCP Server.
• Static IP Address — Choose the Static IP Address radio button to assign the IP Address manually.
NOTE: If Static IP Address is selected go to Step 6 else Step 8.
Step 6. IP Address — Enter the IP Address manually in the IP Address field.
Step 7. Mask — In the Mask Field enter the following fields:
• Network Mask — Choose the Network Mask radio button and enter the IP mask for this address which is a routing prefix written in form identical to that of IP address.
• Prefix Length — Choose the Prefix Length radio button and enter the length of the IPv4 prefix ranging between 8 to 30
Step 8. Click Apply to apply settings to the IPv4 Interface page.
Step 9. (Optional) To Edit any entry, choose the respective field and Click Edit.
Step 10. (Optional) To Delete any entry, Choose the respective field and Click Delete.
