Each bridge and motherboard port can be:
- Enabled or disabled
- Assigned an IP address and subnet mask
- Assigned a default gateway
- Assigned to a VLAN
- Set to 1000 Mbps, 100 Mbps, or 10 Mbps
- Set to full duplex, half-duplex, or auto (on SD-WAN 4000/5000 appliances, some ports can be set to 10 Gbps)
All of these parameters except the speed/duplex setting are set on the Configuration: IP Address page. The speed/duplex settings are set on the Configuration: Interface page.
Notes about parameters:
- Disabled ports do not respond to any traffic.
- The browser-based UI can be enabled or disabled independently on all ports.
- To secure the UI on ports with IP addresses, select HTTPS instead of HTTP on the Configuration: Administrator Interface: Web Access page.
- Inline mode works even if a bridge has no IP address. All other modes require that an IP address be assigned to the port.
- Traffic is not routed between interfaces. For example, a connection on bridge apA does not cross over to the Primary or Aux1 ports, but remains on bridge apA. All routing issues are left to your routers.
