Use tools and procedures in this section to set parameters for a specific IPv4 or IPv6 interface.

View IP Interface

Select the Networking > Ethernet Adapters > Ethernet Adapter #n subdirectory for the VX node and view contents at the Interfaces for Ethernet Adapter #n screen.

Add IP Interface

Insert a new line in the Interfaces for Ethernet Adapter #n screen, then double-click the line to present the Edit IP Interfaces dialog box.

Modify IP Interface

Double-click on table line in the Interfaces for Ethernet Adapter #n screen, to present the Edit IP Interfaces dialog box.

The VX900C can be configured to assign both an IPv4 interface and an IPv6 interface on an Ethernet Adapter at the same time. The IPv6 interface can be either configured as a Static Address or Auto-configured. For more information, see IPv6 Configuration.

The name of the interface (ip1, ip2 etc.) as used in the routing table


Optional text description field

IP Address/Mask

IP Address: Static IP address of the interface, in IPv4/IPv6 format. For detailed information about entering an IPv6 address, see Overview - How is IPv6 used in the VX900C?. Sample IPv6 entry: 2001:1:1:1:1::211/64. This field can be configured only when Auto Configure is set to No.

Mask: Subnet Mask of the interface (integer value or network address notation).

Auto Configure

When Yes is selected, enables Stateless auto-configuration on the interface. An auto-configured IPv6 address, based on preferences received in the Router Advertisement messages (if auto configuration is enabled on the router) is created. When No is selected, the IP address and Subnet Mask can be configured manually in the IP Address/Mask field.

Note: The auto-configured address appears in the VXbuilder after auto-configuration is complete.

Note: The user needs to receive the configuration from the VX to see the Auto-Configured address. When the configuration is not received, and the user attempts to transmit the configuration, it may take time to transmit.

DNS Name

The name is used on the outgoing SIP messages in the From, Via, and Contact headers.


Enable or disable B Monitoring protocol This protocol enables VXwatch to connect to the VX node.
BMP must be enabled, to use VXwatch.


Enables SNMP monitoring on this interface. This setting does not control SNMP Trap routing.


NOTE: This field is available only when the SNMP field is set to Yes.

This field enables SNMPv3 on an incoming request. Two options are available:

  • Select. The VX accepts SNMPv3 format messages over TLS and sends out an encrypted response over the same. It will also accept SNMPv2 and respond over UDP.
  • Deselect. The VX accepts SNMPv2 messages over UDP only.


Enables VXbuilder Control Protocol on the interface
SBCP must be enabled, to use VXbuilder.


Enables the use of FTP with this interface. It is recommended to disable this protocol on your external network but allow it on your internal network interface.


Enables the use of telnet protocol with this interface. It is recommended to disable this protocol on your external network but allow it on your internal network interface.


Enables the use of an SSH client with this interface.

VTP Frame Packing

Enable Voice transfer protocol Frame Packing. Select Unchanged or Fill to MTU.
VTP must be enabled, to use voice / fax packetized transport.

VLAN Tagging

Controls for Virtual LAN tagging and communication priority.
The incoming packets are checked against the VLAN values specified below and all the outgoing packets are sent out with the specified VLAN values.

Interface Type

Enables VLAN tagging (Tagged), disables tagging (Untagged) or leaves existing settings unchanged ([Unchanged])


Virtual LAN identifier corresponding to the 802.1q VLAN ID (0-4095).


Routing priority for signals on this VLAN
