Configuring Virtual IP Parameters for CESoPSN Bundles (CTP Menu)
The virtual IP parameters allow you to use a separate IP address for each bundle and to use an address that is different from the IP address for the CTP device. If you configure the IP address on the:
Same subnet as the CTP IP address, you do not need a static route on the router.
Different subnet as the CTP IP address, you need a static route on the router.
Before you begin:
Create a list of the virtual IP addresses that will be associated with the CTP device. To do so, from the main menu select Node Operations > Configure network settings > Virtual IP addresses, and follow the onscreen instructions. You can create up to 100 virtual IP addresses (IPv4 only).
When you submit your new configuration, the CTP device reboots.
To configure virtual IP parameters for CESoPSN bundles using the CTP Menu:
- From the Main Menu, select 1) Bundle Operations.
- Select 3) CESoPSN.
- Select a bundle from the list.
If you select an active bundle, you are prompted to disable the bundle before configuring it.
- Select 2) Config.
- Select 10) Advanced Options.
- Configure the options as described in Table 1.
Table 1: CESoPSN Bundle Virtual IP Parameter Settings in the CTP Menu
Use virtual ip for port
Specifies whether or not the bundle uses an address that is different from the IP address of the CTP device.
The virtual IP address is used in the IP packet’s Origination Address field, and is used for the circuit’s data and OAM flow.
Virtual ip for port
Specifies the virtual IP address for circuits created by this bundle.
Select an IP address from the list displayed.
At the remote end of the bundle, specify this IP address as the Remote Address of the bundle.
