CX312 ports
The CX312 provides the following external ports: ? One BMC serial port, which is used for logging in to the BMC CLI. ? One SYS serial port, which is used for local management, maintenance, and GE switching plane commissioning. ? Twenty-four 10GE optical ports or six 40GE optical ports, which are used for exchanging data with external networks. The CX312 provides the following internal ports: ? Thirty-two 10GE ports, which are connected to half-width compute node slots 1 to 16. ? One 40GE port, which is used to interconnect the 10GE switching planes on switch modules in slots 1E and 4E or in slots 2X and 3X. ? Two GE ports, which are connected to the two MM910s respectively for communicating with the internal ports eth0 and eth2 on the MM910s.

Configuring an Ethernet subinterface on the firewall
Configure the Layer 3 Ethernet subinterface as follows: 1. Run the system-view command to access the system view. 2. Run the interface interface-type interface-number.subinterface-number command to access the Ethernet subinterface view. 3. Run the ip address ip-address { mask | mask-length } [ sub ] command to configure the IP address of the Ethernet subinterface. 4. Run the vlan-type dot1q vlan-id command to configure the encapsulation type for the Ethernet subinterface and associate a VLAN ID with the subinterface. Configure the Layer 2 Ethernet subinterface as follows: 1. Run the system-view command to access the system view. 2. Run the interface interface-type interface-number command to enter the interface view. 3. Run the portswitch command to configure a Layer 3 Ethernet interface to work in Layer 2 mode. 4. Run the quit command to return to the system view. 5. Run the interface interface-type interface-number.subinterface-number command to create a subinterface and access the subinterface view. 6. Run the vlan-type dot1q vlan-id command to configure the encapsulation type for the subinterface and associate a VLAN ID with the subinterface. 7. Run the portswitch command to configure the subinterface as a Layer 2 subinterface.
