Citrix SD-WAN 1100 platform support for MiRiC-E1T1 FE/GBE SFP

The following two types of MiRiC SFPs are supported on the 1100 appliance for SFP ports 1/5 and 1/6.

  1. MiRiC-E1T1 FE SFPs.
  2. MiRiC-E1T1 GBE SFPs.

MiRiC-E1T1 FE SFPs need to be configured with speed as 100 Mbps and duplex as full. MiRiC-E1T1 GBE SFPs need to be configured with speed as 1 Gbps and duplex as full.

To configure, go to SD-WAN appliance GUI, navigate to Configuration > Network Adapters > Ethernet page.

Access MiRiC SFP web service

  1. The SFP transceivers have default management IP address of 192.168.205.1, which can be used for the SFP web service to configure relevant configurations, for example; T1 or E1. The IP address can be modified other than 192.168.205.1. However ensure that you avoid IP address conflicts.
  2. To enable SFP access to the management:
    • Log into the appliance CLI via ssh admin@(ip address)
    • Run: sfp_access
    • To enable access on 1/5, execute one of the following commands.
      • enable 1/5 # Works for GBE transceivers only if already configured.
      • enable 1/5 100 # - Works only for FE transceivers
      • enable 1/5 1000 # - Works only for GBE transceivers
      • enable 1/5 100 172.217.43.2 # - For FE transceivers and assumes a user changes the default IP to an IP in 172.217.43.0/24
    • enable 1/5 1000 172.217.43.2 # - For GBE transceivers and assumes a user changes the default IP to an IP in 172.217.43.0/24

      Note:

      Enabling management access on 1/5 automatically disables management access on 1/6, and vice versa.

    • To disable access to the management:

      • Log in appliance CLI via ssh admin@(ip address)
      • Run: sfp_access
      • Run: disable
    • To show the status:

      • Log in appliance CLI via ssh admin@(ip address)
      • Run: sfp_access
      • Run: status
    • Ensure that you disable the management access once configuration is done.
    • When the appliance is rebooted, the management access is disabled automatically.
    • When virtual service is restarted, the management access remains configured until enable or disable operation is done.
    • When the appliance is disabled, the management access to the SFPs is lost.
    • When the appliance is re-enabled, the management access is regained.
  3. To configure E1 or T1 type for SFP transceiver:

    • The client machine must be in the same IP subnet as the appliance management subnet.
    • The client machine must have a route to the subnet of SFP transceiver IP address, 192.168.205.0/24, with the appliance management IP as the gateway.
    • Open a browser and visit SFP transceiver management
    • Default user name: su
    • Default password: 1234
    • To configure Interface Type (E1 or T1), navigate to Configuration > Physical Ports and choose E1 or T1 from the drop down menu, and click Save button.
