Interfaces, VLANs and Ranges
Interfaces and VLANs are the building blocks of networks, this is where all the essential configuration takes place to get the network talking. OneConfig makes these day-to-day configuration tasks as simple as possible. The screenshot below shows a list of interfaces on a device.
This list of interfaces can be dynamically sorted on certain columns (Interfaces and VLANs) or the 'search' option can be used to quickly locate a specific interface. Interface status is highlighted by red and green symbols, and interface descriptions, modes and VLANs are displayed.
Using the Action menu, logical and physical interfaces can be edited. Sub-interfaces can be deleted, and you can jump directly to the real time performance graph for that interface.
Editing interfaces is done via a simple workflow. Interface descriptions can be updated, status can be enabled or disabled. Select between access mode and trunk mode, and select from a list of VLANs.
The screenshot below shows a typical view of VLANs configured on a device. It lists VLAN ID, names, description, L3 interfaces and interfaces assigned to the VLAN. The action menu takes you to the edit function, and allows you to delete VLANs with no interfaces connected.
Use the 'New VLAN' button to create a new VLAN, as displayed in the image below.
The 'Edit VLAN' screen lists the key configuration items needed to edit (or create) a VLAN. These are presented as drop-down lists of free text fields with built in syntax checking.
Selecting the 'Ranges' tab will take you to a list of existing ranges. Ranges make it easy to create a list or pool of interfaces and assign them all to a specific VLAN. You can edit existing ranges using the 'Action' function, or you can add a new range using the 'New Interfaces Range' button (top left).
