Configuring a NIC for the SRC VTA (SRC CLI)

For demonstrations and installations with few subscribers, you can configure the SRC VTA to use a NIC proxy stub, which explicitly defines a set of data mappings. However, for most standard installation with a significant number of subscribers and multiple SAEs, you need to set up a full NIC configuration. The requirement to set up a NIC depends on your SRC VTA configuration. For example, configure a NIC if you specify an action that affects more than just the current subscriber described by an event.

To configure a NIC for the SRC VTA:

  1. Use the OnePopLogin configuration scenario (see NIC Configuration Scenarios).
  2. Plan and configure the NIC hosts. See Configuring the NIC (SRC CLI).
  3. Add the NIC SAE agents to each SAE configuration as external plug-ins. Specify these plug-in attributes: router-name, session-id, user-type, login-name, and user-ip-address.

    For information about configuring SAE plug-ins, see Configuring the SAE for External Plug-Ins (SRC CLI).

  4. (Optional) Configure a NIC proxy stub. See Configuring NIC Test Data (SRC CLI) for information about configuring the NIC proxy stub.
  5. Configure a NIC proxy for the SRC VTA. See Configuring NIC Proxies for the SRC VTA.
