Comment on Nortel Ethernet Switch "Agent Not Found" by Paul Humphreys https://blog.michaelfmcnamara.com/2008/01/nortel-ethernet-switch-agent-not-found/#comment-108425 Mon, 24 Sep 2018 15:23:41 +0000 http://maddog.mlhs.org/blog/2008/01/nortel-ethernet-switch-agent-not-found/#comment-108425 Hi Michael

I have an Avaya 3526t PWR and I have this: (as per a previous poster)

ERS3500 Bootloader 1.0.0.3
1 – Download Diag
2 – Download Agent
3 – Download Boot-Loader
A – Continue Boot Sequence
B – Reset

Select:

I understand from this thread that this is a probably failed agent image.

Do you have any engineering info with procedures for updating using the Y modem protocol? Which order to do things? What should the screens look like during the update? Compatibility, version update order?

I am currently trying to flash 5300_536014.img to the switch (Agent file) (The oldest version on the Avaya web site) and after selecting agent and Ymodem then initiating the transfer, I am not sure what is supposed to happen next.

Any links/ pointers would be appreciated.

I want to run the telnet configuration menu. Is there a way to start the configuration menu from the CLI?

Comment on Campus Networking with Juniper by Clint Kennedy https://blog.michaelfmcnamara.com/2017/11/campus-networking-with-juniper/#comment-103396 Tue, 07 Aug 2018 00:06:35 +0000 https://blog.michaelfmcnamara.com/?p=6128#comment-103396 I was going to ask this same question! It’s too bad to see you move away from SPB as Extreme appears to be leading with that conversation in the campus and branch play! We’re still pushing that portfolio with a lot of customers, but Juniper is always a great solution as well, especially when you get them to compete on price! I would have loved to have seen your comparison on Extreme (SPB) though and see who you would have wound up picking!

Do you have any desire to test an iperf from my house to yours and vice versa? I’ve always been curious as to what results really look like to another gig member on another provider in another state. I’m in San Diego, CA

Comment on Minecraft LAN World and Aruba IAPs by Clint Kennedy https://blog.michaelfmcnamara.com/2018/08/minecraft-lan-world-and-aruba-iaps/#comment-103393 Mon, 06 Aug 2018 23:54:07 +0000 https://blog.michaelfmcnamara.com/?p=6225#comment-103393 More than likely that broadcast is just the discovery process of the game to identify that one of them is hosting a game that they have “opened up to lan”
You could leave that disabled and teach them how to direct connect to each other via IP or host names! Each time you select the “open up to lan” option withing minecraft, however, it sets it to a different tcp port, so they would need to connect to their hostname/IP:randomport each time. Just in case you want to leave that option running! :D

It came up in a management meeting. At least the injury happened while doing something interesting. So many broken ankle stories are lame. My little sister stepped in a hole in the backyard and has broken foot as of a couple weeks ago as well. When will you be back on your feet? I pray for a speedy recovery. Kind regards, Jazmine.

Comment on VLANs and IP Routing on an Ethernet Routing Switch by Michael McNamara https://blog.michaelfmcnamara.com/2011/01/vlans-ip-routing-ethernet-routing-switch/#comment-102226 Mon, 30 Jul 2018 10:30:19 +0000 http://blog.michaelfmcnamara.com/?p=1886#comment-102226 If you are using multiple CAT5 cables between your router and switch then just set the ports to be “Access” ports and make them a member of whatever VLAN you would like (Access ports can only be a member of a single VLAN). If you are going to use a single CAT5 cable between the router and switch then you need to make the link a Trunk (TagAll in Avaya/Nortel speak).

Cheers!

Comment on VLANs and IP Routing on an Ethernet Routing Switch by Justin Marmorato https://blog.michaelfmcnamara.com/2011/01/vlans-ip-routing-ethernet-routing-switch/#comment-102193 Mon, 30 Jul 2018 04:48:44 +0000 http://blog.michaelfmcnamara.com/?p=1886#comment-102193 Thanks for the reply! My pfSense router is taking care of all routing for me. My goal is to get all of my main client network traffic (PVID 1/ untagged) and guest network (VLAN 3) to come out the same port (port 1) to my router, but I can’t get my VLAN 3 traffic to pass to my router. In terms of the device, I want to pass VLAN 3 and untagged traffic between port 3 and port 1.

It’s a terminal server so it will support any serial connectivity, you may need a rollover cable depending on the actual equipment.

Cheers!

You need to determine what going to-do your routing? Is it the Nortel switch or is it your home router? The Nortel can do it but you need to add routes to your home router to tell it where to send traffic for the new IP network that we’re adding.

Good Luck

Maybe you can crack the code on this one… I have Ubiquiti Unifi APs, and am trying to get a guest VLAN setup. I have a very basic switch configuration, with all ports assigned to PVID 1. I want to use VLAN 3 for my guest network, but after adding VLAN 3 to the router port and AP port (both ports are set to untag PVID only), I can’t seem to communicate with the router (and thus can’t get a ping or IP). Any suggestions?

Will Lantronix support/work Cisco, Avaya, Nortel Networks, Extreme and Brocade switches as a one box/device?
Please let me know your view.

Planning to procure something good which support all the above OEM/Makers.

Thanks,
Rajesh
