Best way to connect a 1638 to a 3448 with a backup ring?

Jump to solution

All,

I have a client that will be getting a 3448 enhanced.

Eth 0/1 will be on Time Warner Fiber 10mb up/dwn. ( used for primary ).

Eth 0/2 will WindStream ethernet 1.5/mb. ( used for failover ).

We are wanting to connect it to a 1638 switch.

I was talking to a field engineer and he stated to use on of the switch ports on the 3448 and assign it an IP address. 

I am confused I do not see where one can do this on the 3448 on one of the eight switch-ports.

Am I missing something?

What would be the most optimal way to connect the 1638 to the 3448 without losing failover capability?

thanks

Stanoc,

You would need to use vlan1 or create a new vlan. Create an interface on the vlan. Then assign Ports to be members of the vlan... You can add a security zone, nat rules, etc to that new interface
