3COM OS Switch 4500 V3.03.02p15 Release Notes

When a switch with a new version flash runs V3.01.00, using FTP to upload an application file to the switch, or performing write operations on the flash of the switch such as executing the display diagnostic-information command often fails. V3.01.00p01 and later have solved this problem. A device running boot ROM V1.00 may get out of power during startup, which may cause the loss of the application file. You are recommended to upgrade the boot ROM version to V1.01 to solve this problem.

Restrictions and Cautions


1) 2) 3) 4) For storm suppression, use the pps mode because the ratio mode is not suitable for long frames. The forwarding capability of some ports cannot reach the wire speed when the switch works as a stacking device. Silicon behavior: IP packets with the Options field cannot be forwarded. After an ARP entry is aged out from the software, it is not removed from the hardware immediately. Since then, if the ARP entry is not updated within an hour, it is removed from the hardware. 5) After upgrading the software of a NTP-configured stacking device from a version between V3.03.00 and V3.03.00p03 to V3.03.02 or later, you need to remove the existing NTP configuration and reconfigure it.

Features Port internal/external loopback test

Description The port internal loopback test detects the connectivity between switch chips and PHY chips. The port external loopback test detects the connectivity between PHY chips and network interfaces with the help of the self-loop header. The two tests used together can determine whether a fault is a switch fault or a link fault.

Combo ports Unicast, multicast and broadcast suppression VLAN MAC address table Supports bandwidth ratio- and rate-based suppression modes on ports. Supports port-based VLANs, and up to 256 IEEE 802.1Q-compliant VLANs. Supports MAC address learning and up to 8K MAC addresses; Complies with IEEE 802.1D; Notifies MAC address changes to ARP. RSTP 802.1X authentication Supports STP and complies with IEEE 802.1D. Supports PEAP/EAP/TLS/TTLS. The main purpose of IEEE 802.1X is to implement authentication for wireless LAN users, but its application in IEEE 802 LANs provides a method of authenticating LAN users. SSHv2 Secure Shell (SSH) offers an approach to logging into a remote device securely. By encryption and strong authentication, it protects devices against attacks such as IP spoofing and plain text password interception. A switch can work as an SSH server to support connections with SSH clients running on PCs. The voice VLAN feature adds ports into voice VLANs by identifying the source MAC addresses of packets. It automatically assigns higher priority for voice traffic to ensure voice quality. This feature supports two application modes: manual and automatic. Through a DHCP relay agent, DHCP clients in a subnet can communicate with a DHCP server in another subnet to obtain valid IP addresses. In this way, DHCP clients in different subnets can share one DHCP server. This method saves costs and helps implement centralized management. Supports up to 256 static ARP entries. Supports static routing and RIP. Internet Group Management Protocol Snooping (IGMP Snooping) is a multicast constraining mechanism that runs on Layer 2 devices to manage and control multicast groups. Bandwidth management; flow control with 64 bps granularity; 8 sending queues per port; Traffic classification; Traffic rate limit; Port mirroring, which supports only one source mirroring port.

Features Software upload and upgrade Remote authentication

Description Software upload and upgrade through the XMODEM protocol, FTP or TFTP To implement authentication on remote telnet, web, and console users, you need to configure use names and passwords on a RADIUS server, and configure RADIUS authentication on the access switch. When such a user logs onto the switch, the switch sends the user name and password to the RADIUS server for authentication. If the user passes authentication, it can log it to the switch. The switch can only works as a TFTP client. Configuration methods supported: CLI, console port, telnet, and Modem; Features and functions supported: SNMP, remote monitoring (RMON) 1/2/3/9 group MIBs, system logging, hierarchical alarming, Syslog And NTP. Filtering, output and collection of alarm/debug information; Diagnostic tools: Ping, Tracert, and so on; Remote maintenance through Telnet and other ways

Network maintenance

web Fault diagnostics and alarm output Fast startup Detects and reports hardware/software faults. In fast startup mode, a switch can complete a startup process within 60 seconds by skipping the power-on self test (POST) and directly running the APP program. You can set the startup mode to fast or normal in the boot ROM menu.

The undo ip address ip-address { mask | mask-length } command is used to delete the primary IP address. The undo ip address ip-address { mask | mask-length } sub command is used to delete specified secondary IP addresses. You can assign at most five IP address to an interface, among which one is the primary IP address and the others are secondary IP addresses. A newly specified primary IP address overwrites the previous one if there is any. The primary and secondary IP addresses of an interface cannot reside on the same network segment; the IP address of a VLAN interface must not be in the same network segment as that of a loopback interface on a device. A VLAN interface cannot be configured with a secondary IP address if the interface has been configured to obtain an IP address through BOOTP or DHCP. Examples # Assign the primary IP address 129.12.0.1 and secondary IP address 129.12.1.1 to VLAN-interface 1 with subnet mask 255.255.255.0.

This argument can be the combination of multiple ACLs. For more information about this argument. Note that the ACL rules referenced must be those defined with the permit keyword. union-effect: Specifies that all the ACL rules, including those identified by the aclrule argument in this command and those applied previously, are valid. If this keyword is not specified, traffic policing issues both the rate limiting action and the permit action at the same time, that is, traffic policing permits the conforming traffic to pass through. If this keyword is specified, traffic policing issues only the rate limiting action but not the permit action. In this case, if a packet matches both an ACL rule specified in the traffic-limit command and another previously applied ACL rule with the deny keyword specified, the packet will be dropped.

Description destined to IP address 2.2.2.2 and the traffic-limit command is configured to limit the rate of packets sourced from IP address 1.1.1.1 within 128 kbps. Whether packets conforming to the rate limit of 128 kbps, sourced from IP address 1.1.1.1, and destined to IP address 2.2.2.2 (referred to as packets A later) will be dropped depends on the union-effect keyword of the trafficlimit command. If the union-effect keyword is not specified, the traffic-limit command issues both the rate limiting action and the permit action. Whether packets A can pass through depends on the configuration order of the filter command and the traffic-limit command. If the traffic-limit command is configured after the filter command is configured, packets A can pass through; otherwise, packets A are dropped. If the union-effect keyword is specified, the traffic-limit command issues only the rate limiting action. Whether packets A can pass through depends on the filter command. As for this example, packets A are dropped. target-rate: Target packet rate (in kbps) to be set. The range of this argument varies with the port type as follows. Fast Ethernet port: 64 to 99,968 Gigabit Ethernet port: 64 to 1,000,000 The granularity of rate limit is 64 kbps. If the number you input is in the range N*64 to (N+1)*64 (N is a natural number), it will be rounded off to (N+1)*64. burst-bucket burst-bucket-size: Specifies the maximum burst traffic size (in KB) allowed. The burst-bucket-size argument ranges from 4 to 512 and defaults to 512. Note that it must be an integer power of 2. exceed action: Specifies the action to be taken when the traffic rate exceeds the threshold. The action argument can be: drop: Drops the packets. remark-dscp value: Sets a new DSCP value for the packets and then forwards the packets. Description Use the traffic-limit command to enable traffic policing and set the related settings. Use the undo traffic-limit command to disable traffic policing for packets matching specific ACL rules.

Description Ethernet port view Description Use the port-security port-mode command to set the security mode of the port. Use the undo port-security port-mode command to restore the default mode. By default, the port is in the noRestriction mode, namely access to the port is not restricted.

Before setting the security mode to autolearn, you need to use the portsecurity max-mac-count command to configure the maximum number of MAC addresses allowed on the port. When a port operates in the autolearn mode, you cannot change the maximum number of MAC addresses allowed on the port. After setting the security mode to autolearn, you cannot configure static or blackhole MAC addresses on the port. When the port security mode is not noRestriction, you need to use the undo port-security port-mode command to change it back to noRestriction before you change the port security mode to other modes.

On a port configured with a security mode, you cannot do the following: Configure the maximum number of MAC addresses that can be learned. Configure the port as a reflector port for port mirroring. Configure the port as a Fabric port. Configure link aggregation.

Note that: If port security is enabled in system view and dot1X or MAC authentication is enabled on a port, some port-security related commands are executed on the port automatically. These commands cant be executed manually for compatibility with later releases. The details are as follows. 1) If MAC-authentication and MAC-based dot1X are

V3.03.00p01 Operation Changes


1) dot1x timer tx-period command changes

Before modification: The interval for sending 802.1X multicast requests set with the dot1X timer tx-period command is in the range 10 to 120 seconds. If a port joins the guest VLAN upon receiving no response for an 802.1X multicast request, the shortest time for the port to join the guest VLAN is about 10 seconds. After Modification: The interval for sending 802.1X multicast requests set with the dot1X timer tx-period command is in the range 1 to 120 seconds. If a port joins to the guest VLAN upon receiving no response for an 802.1X multicast request, the shortest time for the port to join the guest VLAN is about 1 second.

V3.03.00 Operation Changes


After modification: 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) 8) Info-center related configuration is placed at the end part of the configuration file. The vlan-vpn enable command is exclusive with stack configuration only, and can coexist with other protocols such as STP/GVRP. The device is compatible with line feed characters "\r\n" and"\n", so that it can exchange files with the TFTP server running on the UNIX system. The ping operation performance is improved, but consequently the real time performance of displaying port statistics is reduced, that is, a delay occurs when you view port statistics. You can perform port mirroring and mirroring group configuration through the web interface. The device forwards unknown EAP packets rather than discards them. The sequence of matching web files is changed from main, backup, default to default, main, backup. The device no longer sends PortMstiStateDiscarding trap and log packets when a port goes down.

View System view, Ethernet port view Parameters offline-detect-value: Offline detect timer, which specifies the idle timeout interval (in seconds) for users. At this interval, the switch checks whether there is traffic from each user. If receiving no traffic from a user within two consecutive intervals, the switch logs the user out and notifies the RADIUS server. The value range for the offline-detect-value argument is 0 to 3000000. The default is 300 seconds. Description Use the mac-authentication timer offline-detect command to set the offline detect timer for MAC authentication. Use the undo mac-authentication timer offline-detect command to restore the default. Note that: The offline detect timer configured in system view applies to all MAC authentication-enabled ports. The offline detect timer configured in Ethernet port view applies to the current port only. You can set the offline detect timer to different values on different Ethernet ports. The offline detect timer configured in Ethernet port view takes precedence over the one configured in system view. If the offline-detect-value argument takes the value of 0, the offline detect timer is disabled.

bpdu-drop any
Syntax bpdu-drop any undo bpdu-drop any View Ethernet port view Parameters None Description Use the bpdu-drop any command to enable BPDU dropping on the Ethernet port. Use the undo bpdu-drop any command to disable BPDU dropping on the Ethernet port. By default, BPDU dropping is disabled.
