IPv4 interface addresses can be configured manually by the user, or automatically configured by a DHCP server. This section provides information for defining the device IPv4 addresses, either manually or by making the device a DHCP client. The IPv4 Interface page is used to configure IP addresses for device management. This IP address can be configured on a port, a LAG, VLAN, loopback interface or out-of-band interface. You can configure multiple IP addresses (interfaces) on the device. It then supports traffic routing between these various interfaces and also to remote networks. By default and typically, the routing functionality is performed by the hardware. If hardware resources are exhausted or there’s a routing table overflow in the hardware, IP routing is performed by the software.
The device software consumes one VLAN ID (VID) for every IP address configured on a port or LAG. The device takes the first VID that isn’t used starting from 4094.
To configure the IPv4 addresses, follow these steps:
Click IPv4 Configuration > IPv4 Interface.
Enter the following fields:
Click Apply. The parameter is saved to the Running Configuration file.
