Configuring NIC Test Data (C-Web Interface)
To test a resolution without NIC, you can configure a NIC proxy stub to take the place of the NIC. The NIC proxy stub comprises a set of explicit mappings of data keys and values in the NIC proxy configuration. When the SAE (or another SRC component configured to use a NIC proxy stub) passes a specified key to the NIC proxy stub, the NIC proxy stub returns the corresponding value. When you use a NIC proxy stub, no NIC infrastructure is required.
For example, you can specify a subscriber’s IP address that is associated with a particular SAE. When the SRC component passes this IP address to the NIC proxy stub, the NIC proxy stub returns the corresponding SAE.
To use the NIC proxy stub for the SAE:
Click Configure, and expand Shared>SAE, and then click Configuration.
The Configuration pane appears.
From the Create new list, select NIC Proxy Configuration. Type a name for the new NIC proxy in the dialog box, and click OK.
The new NIC proxy configuration appears in the side pane.
In the side pane, expand the new NIC proxy configuration, and click Test NIC Bindings.
The Test NIC Bindings pane appears.
Click Create, select the Use Test Bindings check box, and then click Apply.
In the side pane, expand Test NIC Bindings, and click Key Values.
From the Create new list, select Key Values. Type a name in the dialog box for the key that indicates the NIC data value for the proxy, and click OK.
The Key Values name pane appears in the side pane and in the Key Values pane.
Enter a value for the key that specifies a value for the NIC data type.
