The numbered labels in this image rerfer to entries in Networking Ports and Other Ports.

Networking Ports

The WAN1 and WAN2 Combo-Ports are shared ports. Each has an RJ-45 port and an SFP port. Only the RJ-45 or the SFP connector can be used each port.

Note

Each port, WAN1 and WAN2, is descrete and individual. It is possible to use the RJ-45 connector on one port and the SFP connector on the other.

Note

Default Host OS Interface is enp2s0f0. The Host OS Interface is one network interface that is only available to the host OS and not available in TNSR. Though technically optional, the best practice is to have one for accessing and updating the host OS.

SFP+ Ethernet Ports

WAN3 and WAN4 are discrete ports, each with dedicated 10 Gbps back to the Intel SoC.

Warning

The built-in SFP interfaces on C3000 systems do not support modules utilizing copper Ethernet connectors (RJ45). As such, copper SFP/SFP+ modules are not supported on this platform.

Note

Intel notes the following additional limitations on these interfaces:

Devices based on the Intel(R) Ethernet Connection X552 and Intel(R) Ethernet Connection X553 do not support the following features:

  • Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE)

  • Intel PROSet for Windows Device Manager

  • Intel ANS teams or VLANs (LBFO is supported)

  • Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)

  • Data Center Bridging (DCB)

  • IPSec Offloading

  • MACSec Offloading

In addition, SFP+ devices based on the Intel(R) Ethernet Connection X552 and Intel(R) Ethernet Connection X553 do not support the following features:

  • Speed and duplex auto-negotiation.

  • Wake on LAN

  • 1000BASE-T SFP Modules

Power

  • Clients can access the Serial Console using either the built in serial interface with a Micro-USB B cable or an RJ45 “Cisco” style cable and separate serial adapter.

    Note

    Only one type of console connection will work at a time and the RJ45 console connection has priority. If both ports are connected only the RJ45 console port will function.

  • The Power connector is 12VDC with threaded locking connector. Power Consumption 20W (idle)
