Faq (S5720-36C-EI-AC)

What Is the Working Temperature of the Switch?

· Operating temperature: 0°C to +45°C (altitude 0 to 1800 m) · Storage temperature: -40°C to +70°C

What Is the Authorized Directory for an FTP User?

The authorized directory for the FTP service must be an existing directory on the local device. If the authorized directory is incorrect, run the local-user user-name ftp-directory directory command to configure a correct directory.

 Can a Traffic Policy Be Configured in a Super-VLAN or Sub-VLAN to Make the Traffic Policy Take Effect?

The packets received and sent by the switch configured with VLAN aggregation carry sub-VLAN tags but not super-VLAN tags, so a traffic policy must be configured in all sub-VLANs of a super-VLAN. A traffic policy in the super-VLAN does not take effect.

What Should I Do When Finding a MAC Address Flapping Alarm?

If the alarm is reported only once, ignore it. If the alarm is reported multiple times, find the first and second interfaces where the MAC address is learned. Shut down the second interface to locate the loop. Then adjust the networking to remove the loop.

Does the S5720-36C-EI-AC Support QinQ?

Yes, it support both basic QinQ and selective QinQ.

Which VLAN Does the Interface Enabled with VLAN Mapping or QinQ Obtain Through MAC Address Learning?

The VLAN mapping or QinQ implementation is prior to the MAC address learning. Thus, after the VLAN mapping or QinQ implementation, the interface obtains the outer VLAN through MAC address learning.

Does the Switch Support the NAT Function?

The switch does not support the NAT function.

Can Layer 2 Multicast Be Configured in Dynamic VLANs?

Layer 2 multicast cannot be configured in dynamic VLANs.

Does S5720-36C-EI-AC Support IPSG?

Yes,the S5720-36C-EI-AC supports IPSG.

How Can I Obtain the MACsec Plug-in and Related Documentation?

By default, switches do not support the MACsec function. The MACsec function is available only when a plug-in is installed on the switch.
