About the Port Profiles Page


To access this page, select Configuration > SD-LAN > Port Profiles in Customer Portal.

Use this page to view, edit, clone, and delete port profiles. A port profile authenticates supplicants (users and devices such as a printer) trying to access network resources and configure parameters such as flow control, link mode, storm control, MAC limit, and so on, on the switch ports. If you include firewall filters for egress and ingress traffic in the port profile, you can permit or deny access to network resources granularly based on source and destination IP addresses, MAC addresses, ports, and protocols in the packets.
