Port Assignments for a 10GbE Fiber NIC

You can purchase a 10GbE fiber network interface card (NIC) from Skyhigh Security and install it in a card slot on the rear of the WBG-5x00-C and WBG-5x00-D appliances. For the WBG-5x00-E appliances, a fiber NIC is available that can be operated with a 1GbE or 10GbE data transferring rate.

The operating system assigns names to the appliance ports, including the additional ports that are provided when a fiber NIC is installed.

The following table shows the port assignments on a WBG-5000-C appliance.

Network interface Name assigned to port on interface
Network interface 1 (onboard, outer left) eth0
Network interface 2 (onboard, inner left) eth1
Network interface 3 (onboard, inner right) eth2
Network interface 4 (onboard, outer right) eth3
Network interface 7 (on added 10GbE fiber NIC, outer left) eth4
Network interface 8 (on added 10GbE fiber NIC, inner left) eth5
Network interface 9 (on added 10GbE fiber NIC, inner right) eth6
Network interface 10 (on added 10GbE fiber NIC, outer right) eth7

 

This table shows the port assignments on the WBG-5x00-D appliances.

Network interface Name assigned to port on interface
Network interface 1 (onboard, left) eth0
Network interface 2 (onboard, right) eth1
Network interface 3 (on built-in IO module, left) eth2
Network interface 4 (on built-in IO module, right) eth3
Network interface 5 (on preinstalled copper NIC, left) eth5
Network interface 6 (on preinstalled copper NIC, right) eth4
Network interface 7 (on added 10GbE fiber NIC, outer left) eth9
Network interface 8 (on added 10GbE fiber NIC, inner left) eth8
Network interface 9 (on added 10GbE fiber NIC, inner right) eth7
Network interface 10 (on added 10GbE fiber NIC, outer right) eth6
