Double-click on an entry in the General Setting screen to present the General Settings dialog box.
Primary Clock Slot
Slot number that contains the card to be used for system backplane timing.
Primary Clock Port
Port number on that card to be used for system backplane timing.
Secondary Clock Slot
Slot number that contains the card which will be used for system backplane timing if the primary source is not available.
Secondary Clock Port
Port number on that card which will be used if the primary source in not available.
Enables/disables the Time Server.
Node ID of the VXgate system to be the Time Server.
Enables/disables the VX to sync time with the NTP server.
Selected. VX syncs time with NTP server.
Deselected. VX does not sync time with NTP server.
|NTP Server||IP address of the NTP Server.|
Enables NTP Authentication.
Selected. NTP Authentication is enabled.
Deselected. NTP Authentication is disabled.
For Time Server: The number of seconds between updates. Range of interval: 16 - 129600 seconds.
For NTP: The number of seconds between updates. Range of interval: 16 - 129600 seconds.
NTP Authentication Key. Valid range: 1 - 15 characters.
NOTE: Field appears only when Authentication is checked.
The maximum number of seconds by which the node's clock can be adjusted during a synchronization update
Read Community Name
An SNMP community is the group in which devices and management stations running SNMP belong, and helps define where information is sent. The community name is used to identify the group. An SNMP device or agent may belong to more than one SNMP community. It will not respond to requests from management stations that do not belong to one of its communities. SNMP default communities are:
Trap Community Name
Used in outbound SNMP Traps. The Trap Community Name is optional. If it is not set, then it will use the SNMP Community Name.
Enables retrieval of MIB-II information over SNMP.
When checkbox is enabled, the VX automatically restarts at the scheduled time when the memory consumption goes below the set threshold.
Configure the time for the VX to automatically restart. Click the up and down arrows to adjust the time.
Enable support for RADIUS billing systems off of VXgate
Edit or add a banner message that displays when telneting or connecting to the node by way of VXbuilder.
Post-Login Message of the Day
Edit or add a message of the day that displays after logging into the CLI via telnet, or connecting to the node via VXbuilder.
Status Update Interval
Frequency by which channel status is sent to peer node
No. of missed status updates before LLEM is declared down
Once the configured value is reached, all circuits in the trunk group will be declared down
The name of the certificate to associate with this VX node.
Require TLS for domain login
Enables using Transport Layer Security Protocol (TLS) for domain login. See the settings under the SIP tab in the Trunk Groups settings for more information about TLS settings.
Allow Untrusted Root Certificates
Select to allow self-signed certificates to be used. When this checkbox is selected, VX does not check to see if the certificate is lawfully signed by a trusted root authority (CA). Using self-signed certificates allows a user to use the TLS transport encryption and decryption but bypass authentication.
TLS for VXwatch
If selected and a valid certificate is installed, VXwatch will connect using a secure TLS connection
TLS for VXbuilder
If selected and a valid certificate is installed, VXbuilder will connect using a secure TLS connection
Persistent TLS Connections
Enabled: When checked, this field enables the Reuse of the TLS connection for multiple calls.
Enabled: When checked, this field enables the VX to search the list of revoked certificates to ensure the target CRL (Certificate Revocation List) has not been revoked.
OSCP Enabled: When checked, this field enables the VX to use the OCSP (Online Certificate Status Protocol) method for checking revocation status of the server certificate.
Timeout (Inactivity Timer): The timeout interval for the OCSP verification. Enter a time in ms. Valid entry: 0 - 20000 ms.
Responder URL: Enter URL for the pre-configured OCSP Responder to do revocation checking by overriding AIA. Optional parameters when OCSP is enabled.
Override AIA. When enabled, the URL extracted from AIA extension of the server certificate is ignored, and URL specified on VX at the client side in “Responder URL” field will be chosen for revocation checking. Available when Responder URI is available.
|Enable all Ciphers|
NOTE: The Enable all Ciphers feature is availble for Release 5.2v24 and later.
Enables support for 3DES ciphers with a CTR mode of operation. Through the checkbox, select which ciphers are used for login to the VX:
Checked. Supports 3DES with CTR mode and CBC mode for SSH login
Unchecked. Supports 3DES with CTR mode for SSH login.
Default entry: Unchecked.
