Does NetVanta support "No Switchport" Command so that an IP address can be assigned to a switchport?

Jump to solution

I would like to assign an IP address to a port on a 1638. Does NetVanta support this?

Hi bigleague:

The technique I think you'll want to use is to create a new VLAN IP interface, then hard-set one or more switchports in that VLAN (access port, or port-based VLAN).  Here's a sample configuration that includes the commands you need, with VLAN 2 as the example.  Cheers!

vlan 2

  name "Network 2"

interface gigabit-switchport 0/20

  description Network 2

  no shutdown

  switchport access vlan 2

!

interface gigabit-switchport 0/21

  description Network 2

  no shutdown

  switchport access vlan 2

!

interface vlan 2

  description Network 2

  ip address  172.16.2.1  255.255.255.0

  no shutdown

end

Thanks for the quick response. I understand how to do it with VLANs however, I was just looking for a cleaner way. So am I correct in assuming the answer is no?

To my knowledge, switchports cannot be used as Ethernet interfaces, strictly speaking.  VLAN interfaces must be used.

Best,
