Hi, i have 4 cnMatrix switches connecting to 4 PTP450i that making ring topology around my network, however, i have Cisco core router and Cisco core switch that connecting to this topology. i configured VLANS (VLAN IDs: 1, 20, 30 and 40) with 802.1Q standard on both Cisco devices with trunk ports that will transfer all VLANS across the network with following IP plan:
- VLAN 1: managment VLAN, 10.1.10.0/24
- VLAN 20: CCTV VLAN, 10.1.20.0/24
- VLAN 30: Voice VLAN, 10.1.30.0/24
- VLAN 40: Internet VLAN, 10.1.40.0/24
i need to configure trunk ports and access ports on all switches to make this setup works.
so appreciate your support in achieving this goal..
Also, i have one more stupid question, how can i change the IP address of cnMatrix switch to make it within my management network range (10.1.10.0/24)?
First thing is make sure you are running the latest code of software for the matrix switches. the syntax is similar to Cisco in the CLI. Below is an example of how to set VLAN 1 IP Address on the switch via CLI.
cnMatrix(config)# interface vlan 1
cnMatrix(config-if)# ip address 192.168.1.10 255.255.255.0
cnMatrix(config-if)# no shut
cnMatrix# write startup-config
We have documentation on our support site as well for the CLI/GUI commands.
thanks a lot for your response, i made sure that all equipment updated with latest SW release, also after reading most of your documentations and resources i noticed that syntax is very close to Cisco commands, but trying all the facts above; i couldn't configure switches for basic functions, however, talking about Cisco, i would do the following:
Switch(config-if)#ip add 10.1.10.5 255.255.255.0
Switch(config)# ip default-gateway 10.1.10.1
also, with VLANs and ports:
- define VLANs:
Switch(config)#int VLAN 20
Switch(config)#int VLAN 30
Switch(config)#int VLAN 40
Switch(config)#int gig 0/1
Switch(config-if)# switchport mode trunk
Switch(config-if)#int gig 0/2
Switch(config-if)#switchport mode access vlan 20
Switch(config-if)#int gig 0/3
Switch(config-if)#switchport mode access vlan 30
so, the point is, can you please help me in the basic tasks i want to do with my switches as i'm still new to Cambium products?
thanks again, and looking forward to hear from you
Below is a quick example. Depending on what ports you want to assign etc. Hope this helps.
VLAN creation and port assignment:
•cnMatrix(config)# vlan 20 – create VLAN 20 and make it active
•cnMatrix(config-vlan)# ports add gigabitethernet 0/2 untagged gigabitethernet 0/2 – assign port Gi 0/1 to VLAN 20
•cnMatrix(config)# vlan 30 – create VLAN 30 and make it active
•cnMatrix(config-vlan)# ports add gigabitethernet 0/3 untagged gigabitethernet 0/3– assign port Gi 0/3 to VLAN 3
•cnMatrix(config)# vlan 40 – create VLAN 40 and make it active
cnMatrix(config-vlan)# ports add gigabitethernet 0/4 untagged gigabitethernet 0/4 – assign port Gi 0/1 to VLAN 40
•cnMatrix(config)# interface gigabitethernet 0/(1) -- Port you wish to assign
•cnMatrix(config-if)# switchport acceptable-frame-type untaggedAndPrioritytagged - the acceptable frame type has to be configured to untaggedAndPrioritytagged the access port prior to actually make it an access port
•cnMatrix(config-if)# switchport mode access
•cnMatrix(config)# interface gigabitethernet 0/(2) -- Port you wish to assign
•cnMatrix(config-if)# switchport mode trunk – will be automatically added to the existent and newly created VLANs
