To establish the connection. see “Setting Passwords” on page 40). You will next be required to enter a password for access to the switch. October 2003 . (For more information. 20 „ Chapter 1: The Command Line Interface 315393-E.0 Command Reference Connecting to the Switch You can access the command line interface in any one of the following ways: „ „ „ Using a console connection via the console port Using a Telnet connection over the network Using an SSH connection to securely log into another computer over a network Establishing a Console Connection Requirements To establish a console connection with the switch. you will need the following: „ An ASCII terminal or a computer running terminal emulation software set to the parameters shown in the table below: Table 1-1 Console Configuration Parameters Parameter Baud Rate Data Bits Parity Stop Bits Flow Control Value 9600 8 None 1 None „ A standard serial cable with a male DB9 connector (see your switch hardware installation guide for specifics). 3.

The MAC address can be found on a small white label on the back panel of the switch. Telnet access provides the same options for user access and administrator access as those available through the console port. Chapter 1: The Command Line Interface 315393-E. NOTE – If connecting to the management port. you need to have a device with Telnet software located on the same network as the switch. The switch must have an IP address. you can access the CLI using a Telnet connection.Alteon OS 21. when you configure the switch IP address (see “Setup Part 1: Basic System Configuration” on page 29). To configure the switch for Telnet access. Running Telnet Once the IP parameters on the Alteon Application Switch are configured. The port must be manually configured with the proper IP address. Using a BOOTP Server By default. run the Telnet program on your workstation and issue the Telnet command.0 Command Reference Establishing a Telnet Connection A Telnet connection offers the convenience of accessing the switch from any workstation connected to the network. The MAC address can also be found in the System Information menu (see “System Information” on page 53). BOOTP is not supported. October 2003 „ 21 . If you have a BOOTP server on your network. To establish a Telnet connection with the switch. The switch can get its IP address in one of two ways: „ „ Dynamically. add the MAC address of the switch to the BOOTP configuration file located on the BOOTP server. followed by the switch IP address: telnet <IP address> You will then be prompted to enter a password as explained on page 22. the Alteon OS software is set up to request its IP address from a BOOTP server. from a BOOTP server on your network Manually.

Thus. Radius The following SSH clients have been tested: „ „ „ SSH 1. Key Exchange: RSA Encryption: 3DES-CBC. The supported SSH encryption and authentication methods are listed below. DES User Authentication: Local password authentication.0 Command Reference Establishing an SSH Connection Although a remote network administrator can manage the configuration of an Alteon Application Switch via Telnet.0. As a secure alternative to using Telnet to manage switch configuration. Running SSH Once the IP parameters are configured and the SSH service is turned on the Alteon Application Switch.2. The SSH (Secure Shell) protocol enables you to securely log into another computer over a network to execute commands remotely. this method does not provide a secure connection.5 and supports SSH-1.5-1.X.2 and SecureCRT 3.1 for Windows (Data Fellows) NOTE – The Alteon OS implementation of SSH is based on SSH version 1. followed by the switch IP address: >> # ssh <switch IP address> 22 „ Chapter 1: The Command Line Interface 315393-E.

SSH ensures that all data sent over the network is encrypted and secure. „ „ „ „ Server Host Authentication: Client RSA-authenticates the switch in the beginning of every connection. SSH clients of other versions (especially Version 2) will not be supported.Alteon OS 21.0.3 (Van Dyke Technologies. a SSH/SCP client will not be able to login if the switch is doing key generation at that time or if another client has just logged in before this client. the system will fail to do the key generation if a SSH/SCP client is logging in at that time. you can access the command line interface using an SSH connection.23 and SSH 1.27 for Linux (freeware) SecureCRT 3.XX. run the SSH program on your workstation by issuing the SSH command. The switch can do only one session of key/cipher generation at a time.

they must be aware of the interactions between temporary and permanent changes. Users may display information that has no security or privacy implications. see “Setting Passwords” on page 40. Administrators can access switch functions to configure and troubleshoot problems on the Alteon Application Switch.Alteon OS 21. operators cannot severely impact switch operation. Because administrators can also make temporary (operator-level) changes as well. and screens increase as needed to perform various switch management tasks. Accessing the Switch To enable better switch management and user accountability. use the following command: >> # ssh -1 ace <switch IP address> You will then be prompted to enter your user name and password. October 2003 „ 23 . Administrators are the only ones that may make permanent changes to the switch configuration—changes that are persistent across a reboot/reset of the switch. Operators can only effect temporary changes on the Alteon Application Switch. The default user names/password for each access level are listed in the following table. Conceptually. Because any changes an operator makes are undone by a reset of the switch. Operators have access to the switch management features used for daily switch operations. Chapter 1: The Command Line Interface 315393-E. or SSH. seven levels or classes of user access have been implemented on the Alteon Application Switch. you are prompted to enter a password. Once you are connected to the switch via local console. NOTE – It is recommended that you change default switch passwords after initial configuration and as regularly as required under your network security policies. For more information. Web management functions. access classes are defined as follows: „ User interaction with the switch is completely passive—nothing can be changed on the Alteon Application Switch. „ „ Access to switch functions is controlled through the use of unique surnames and passwords. Levels of access to CLI.0 Command Reference or. Telnet. These changes will be lost when the switch is rebooted/reset. if SecurID authentication is required. such as switch statistics and current operational state information.

Open Shortest Path First Configuration
Alteon OS supports the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) routing protocol. The Alteon OS implementation conforms to the OSPF version 2 specifications detailed in Internet RFC 1583. OSPF is designed for routing traffic within a single IP domain called an Autonomous System (AS). The AS can be divided into smaller logical units known as areas. In any AS with multiple areas, one area must be designated as area 0, known as the backbone. The backbone acts as the central OSPF area. All other areas in the AS must be connected to the backbone. Areas inject summary routing information into the backbone, which then distributes it to other areas as needed. For more information on how to configure OSPF on the switch, refer to your Alteon OS Application Guide.

For example, when a virtual link has to be established with the backbone, the area type must be defined as transit. Transit area: allows area summary information to be exchanged between routing devices. Any area that is not a stub area or NSSA is considered to be transit area. Stub area: is an area where external routing information is not distributed. Typically, a stub area is connected to only one other area. NSSA: Not-So-Stubby Area (NSSA) is similar to stub area with additional capabilities. For example, routes originating from within the NSSA can be propagated to adjacent transit and backbone areas. External routes from outside the Autonomous System (AS) can be advertised within the NSSA but are not distributed into other areas. metric <metric value (1-65535)> Configures a stub area to send a numeric metric value. All routes received via that stub area carry the configured metric to potentially influencing routing decisions. Metric value assigns the priority for choosing the switch for default route. Metric type determines the method for influencing routing decisions for external routes. auth none|password|md5 None: No authentication required. Password: Authenticates simple passwords so that only trusted routing devices can participate.

Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) support on Alteon Application Switches provides redundancy between routers in a LAN. This is accomplished by configuring the same virtual router IP address and ID number on each participating VRRP-capable routing device. One of the virtual routers is then elected as the master, based on a number of priority criteria, and assumes control of the shared virtual router IP address. If the master fails, one of the backup virtual routers will assume routing authority and take control of the virtual router IP address. By default, VRRP is disabled. Alteon OS has extended VRRP to include virtual servers as well, allowing for full active/active redundancy between its Layer 4 switches. For more information on VRRP, see the “High Availability” chapter in your Alteon OS 21.0 Application Guide. Table 6-65 Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol Options (/cfg/l3/vrrp)

This menu is used for configuring up to 256 virtual routers for this switch. A virtual router is defined by its virtual router ID and an IP address. On each VRRP-capable routing device participating in redundancy for this virtual router, a virtual router will be configured to share the same virtual router ID and IP address. Virtual routers are disabled by default. Table 6-66 VRRP Virtual Router Options (/cfg/l3/vrrp/vr)
Command Syntax and Usage track Displays the VRRP Priority Tracking Menu for this virtual router. Tracking is Alteon’s proprietary extension to VRRP, used for modifying the standard priority system used for electing the master router. Tracking is not needed if sharing (share) is enabled. To view menu options, see page 264. vrid <virtual router ID (1-255)> Defines the virtual router ID. This is used in conjunction with addr (below) to define a virtual router on this switch. To create a pool of VRRP-enabled routing devices which can provide redundancy to each other, each participating VRRP device must be configured with the same virtual router: one that shares the same vrid and addr combination. The vrid for standard virtual routers (where the virtual router IP address is not the same as any virtual server) can be any integer between 1 and 255. The default value is 1. All vrid values must be unique within the VLAN to which the virtual router’s IP interface belongs. addr <IP address (such as, 192.4.17.101)> Defines the IP address for this virtual router using dotted decimal notation.

Command Syntax and Usage if <interface number (1-256)> Selects a switch IP interface (between 1 and 256). If the IP interface has the same IP address as the addr option above, this switch is considered the “owner” of the defined virtual router. An owner has a special priority of 255 (highest) and will always assume the role of master router, even if it must preempt another virtual router which has assumed master routing authority. This preemption occurs even if the preem option below is disabled. The default value is 1. prio <priority (1-254)> Defines the election priority bias for this virtual server. This can be any integer between 1 and 254. The default value is 100. During the master router election process, the routing device with the highest virtual router priority number wins. If there is a tie, the device with the highest IP interface address wins. If this virtual router’s IP address (addr) is the same as the one used by the IP interface, the priority for this virtual router will automatically be set to 255 (highest). When priority tracking is used (/cfg/l3/vrrp/track or /cfg/l3/vrrp/vr #/track), this base priority value can be modified according to a number of performance and operational criteria. adver <seconds (1-255)> Defines the time interval between VRRP master advertisements. This can be any integer between 1 and 255 seconds. The default value is 1. preem disable|enable Enables or disables master preemption. When enabled, if this virtual router is in backup mode but has a higher priority than the current master, this virtual router will preempt the lower priority master and assume control. Note that even when preem is disabled, this virtual router will always preempt any other master if this switch is the owner (the IP interface address and virtual router addr are the same). By default, this option is enabled. share disable|enable Enables or disables virtual router sharing, an Alteon proprietary extension to VRRP.

This menu is used for modifying the priority system used when electing the master router from a pool of virtual routers. Various tracking criteria can be used to bias the election results. Each time one of the tracking criteria is met, the priority level for the virtual router is increased by an amount defined through the VRRP Tracking Menu (see page 274). Criteria are tracked dynamically, continuously updating virtual router priority levels when enabled. If the virtual router preemption option (see preem in Table 6-66 on page 262) is enabled, this virtual router can assume master routing authority when its priority level rises above that of the current master. Some tracking criteria (vrs, ifs, and ports below) apply to standard virtual routers, otherwise called “virtual interface routers.” Other tracking criteria (l4pts, reals, and hsrp) apply to “virtual server routers,” which perform Layer 4 Server Load Balancing functions.

In an average network that employs multiple servers without server load balancing. based on a variety of load-balancing algorithms. With this software feature. 283 315393-E. each server usually specializes in providing one or two unique services.CHAPTER 7 The SLB Configuration Menu Server Load Balancing (SLB) allows you to configure the Alteon Application Switch to balance user session traffic among a pool of available servers that provide shared services. the switch is aware of the services provided by each server and can direct user session traffic to an appropriate server. This chapter discusses how to use the Command Line Interface (CLI) for configuring Server Load Balancing (SLB) on the Alteon Application Switch. it can become overutilized. Placing this kind of strain on a server can decrease the performance of the entire network as user requests are rejected by the server and then resubmitted by the user stations. Refer to your Alteon OS Application Guide for detailed information on this feature. If one of these servers provides access to applications or data that is in high demand. October 2003 .

When minmisses is specified for a real server group performing Application Redirection. With this option. The server with the fewest current connections is considered to be the best choice for the next client connection request. This metric is optimized for Application Redirection. The hash metric should be used if the statistical load balancing achieved using minmisses is not as optimal as desired. Best statistical load balancing is achieved when the IP address destinations of load balanced frames are spread across a broad range of IP subnets. leastconns Least connections. For Server Load Balancing. Although the hash metric can provide more even load balancing at any given instance. This is useful for applications where client information must be retained between sessions. This option is the most self-regulating. Server load with this metric becomes most evenly balanced as the number of active clients increases. all requests from a specific client will be sent to the same server. it is not as effective as minmisses when servers leave and reenter service. consider using the hash metric. When specified for a real server group performing Server Load Balancing. the hash metric uses IP address information in the client request to select a server.0 Command Reference Server Load Balancing Metrics Using the metric command. all requests for a specific IP destination address will be sent to the same server. If the Load Balancing statistics indicate that one server is processing significantly more requests over time than other servers.

Weights are not applied when using the hash or minmisses metrics. This results in a request always being sent to a server that is up. the real server weights are adjusted so they are inversely proportional to the number of octets that the real server processes during a given interval. With this option. the smaller is the weight assigned to that server. This can improve load balancing among servers of different performance levels. 298 „ Chapter 7: The SLB Configuration Menu 315393-E. With phash enabled. October 2003 . The higher the bandwidth used. The weights are adjusted so they are inversely proportional to a moving average of response time. With the phash metric. phash The phash metric utilizes the best features of the hash and minmiss metrics. it will rehash for that request based on the actual number of servers that are up. a higher proportion of connections are given to servers with higher weights. when real servers are configured with weights (see the weight option on page 287). NOTE – Under the leastconns and roundrobin metrics. If the first hash hits a dead server. the switch monitors and records the amount of time that each real server takes to reply to a health check.

If there is more than one VLAN defined on the Alteon Application Switch. and the ARP tables in the devices around them would have two ARP entries with the same IP address but different MAC addresses. The switch then replaces the VIP and with one of the real server IP addresses (RIP’s). The master is always advertising via the broadcasts.0. VSR is Alteon WebSystems’ proprietary extension to the VRRP specification. If the frames were not half NAT’ed to the address of one of the RIPs. This process of replacing the destination IP (VIP) with one of the real server addresses is called half NAT. by the switch. The backup switch is always listening for the broadcasts. All IP interfaces on the Alteon Application Switch must be in a VLAN. With VRRP. Network address translation is done back and forth. If they didn’t. Classic load balancing.18. updates the relevant checksums.0 Command Reference Virtual Router A shared address between two devices utilizing VRRP. as well as IP interfaces. In VRRP. one switch is considered the master and the other the backup. If you have a VRRP address that two switches are sharing. October 2003 „ 391 . then the VRID number needs to be identical on both switches so each virtual router on each switch knows whom to share with. Requests destined for a Virtual Server IP address (VIP). The VRRP MAC address as defined in the RFC is 00-00-5E-00-01-{VRID}. forcing the packet up to Layer 3. since the packet would have the DIP of the VIP and not that of the server (RIP). For a more detailed description. Frames come to the switch destined for the VIP. are load balanced to a real server contained in the group associated with the VIP.0. and forwards the frame to the server for which it is now destined. as defined in RFC 2338. as requests come and go. refer to RFC 2338. The reason for both of these protocols is so devices have a next hop or default gateway that is always available. A protocol that acts very similarly to Cisco’s proprietary HSRP address sharing protocol. If the backup switch didn’t do the Gratuitous ARP the Layer 2 devices attached to the switch would not know that the MAC address had moved in the network. a server would receive the frame that was destined for it’s MAC address. which is owned by the switch. Should the master stop advertising. Virtual Server Load Balancing VRID (Virtual Router Identifier) VRRP (Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol) VSR (Virtual Server Router) Glossary 315393-E. the two switches would fight for ownership of the Virtual Server IP address. These advertisements are sent via a broadcast message to an address such as 224. The switch announces this change in ownership to the devices around it by way of a Gratuitous ARP. the backup will take over ownership of the VRRP IP and MAC addresses as defined by the specification.Alteon OS 21. The server would then drop the frame.
