Port assignments on the new generation appliance models

The following diagrams show the port assignments for the new generation appliance models.

WBG-4500-D

This appliance model has two network interfaces, a serial interface, and an RMM interface on its rear panel.

Four more network interfaces are made available on a network interface module card (IO module), which is installed in the card slot on the right.

Figure 1. Interfaces on rear of WBG-4500-D

The network interfaces provide ports, which the operating system assigns names to as follows:

Table 1: Interface names on WBG-4500-D
Position Network interface port Name assigned by the operating system
1 NIC 1 eth0
2 NIC 2 eth1
3 NIC 3 (on IO module) eth2
4 NIC 4 (on IO module) eth3
5 NIC 5 (on IO module) eth4
6 NIC 6 (on IO module) eth5
