One can link devices to a trunk, they'll act as one aggregated virtual link.


  • We have to check if this feature works together with channel bonding, leads to performance increase or decrease.


One can crete logical partitions of the physical LAN. 64VLANS are supported. They can be applied to Trunks, as well as to single ports.
  • Ports can be in different VLANS
  • VLAN Packets can be tagged. So they only will be delivered inside the VLAN. As Nodes can't tag or recive tagged packets, this feature is for switch-switch connections only.
  • There is something like PVID...


  • We have to check how VLANS help to increase the Throughput and how it works with channel bonding.


SNMP for is read only. No configuration can be made.


Disable "Rate Limits"! Otherwise there may be problems with the DHCP-communication!

in Use

There are two 24port and one 8port Switch installed in the test Rack.They can be configured by Browser,,
or over their forwarded Ports at,50080,60080

By default the Ip is and therefore not accessible from our Subnet. Now the IP is aquired via Dhcp.

I failed accessing the Page via links2, the output is unreadable.
