RE: NORTEL 5510 config help

I don't understand what you mean by "i can see port ip address", do you mean you can see it when you display the config?

And it's not clear what your question is.

Can you clarify?

RE: NORTEL 5510 config help

I'm not sure I understand the config you're showing us.

This is what a 5500 interface config looks like:

! *** VLAN ***
vlan configcontrol flexible
vlan name 1 "VLAN #1"
vlan create 2 name "MGMT" type port
vlan create 3 name "DATA" type port
! *** Interface ***
interface FastEthernet ALL
default auto-negotiation-advertisements port ALL
no shutdown port ALL
snmp trap link-status port ALL enable
speed port 1-48 auto
duplex port 1-48 auto
! *** L3 ***
ip routing
interface vlan 1
ip address
ip routing
interface vlan 2
ip address
ip routing
interface vlan 3
ip address

What is command to assign ip address to specific port
and what is command to see port ip config details

Please help

RE: NORTEL 5510 config help

I don't know why you're trying to do that.
Do you have the Nortel config guides for 5500s?

For routing, you configure VLAN interfaces, not physical interfaces.

RE: NORTEL 5510 config help


not only for routing ...

i need to configure physical interface ip for other connectivity

got solution that I have to upgrade my firmware
