hEX block diagram

Fri Dec 15, 2017 7:27 pm

Hi

On hEX (RB750Gr3) product page there are two block diagrams, one with disabled and one with enabled switching.
Qs:
why two, is that a user option?
if so, how to do it?
and why choose one over the other? What are the (dis)advantages of each?

Thanks
Seb

I've contacted support, but info received was insufficient

Anyway, what I guess:
the two modes of operation may be chosen, with 'disabled switching"Image
and "enabled switching"Image

It is a user configurable, depending whether or not two or more ports are "switched" together.
There is a dependency on the version of RouterOS though:
* pre 6.41: if at least one port is slave to a master -> "enabled switching" applies
* post 6.41: if at least two ports are bridged in hw(=yes) -> "enabled switching" applies
* otherwise "disabled switching" is effective.
