Configuring Virtual IP Parameters for CTP 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 CTP Main Menu, select Node Operations > Configure network settings > Virtual IP addresses and follow the onscreen instructions.

    When you submit your new configuration, the CTP device reboots.

  • Disable the bundle before you modify the bundle options.

To configure virtual IP parameters for CTP bundles using the CTP Menu:

  1. From the CTP Main Menu, select 1) Bundle Operations.
  2. Select 1) CTP.
  3. Select a bundle from the list.

    If you select an active bundle, you are prompted to disable the bundle before configuring it.

  4. Select 2) Config.
  5. Select 10) Advanced Options.
  6. Configure options 1 and 2 as described in Table 1.

FieldFunctionYour Action

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.

Select one:

  • n (no)—Circuits created by this bundle use the IP address of the CTP device.

  • y (yes)—Circuits created by this bundle use an address that is different from the CTP device.

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.
