The IP Address may initially be set using the console interface prior to connecting to it through the Ethernet. If the Switch IP address has not yet been changed, read the introduction of the DGS-3600 Series CLI Refence Guide or return to Section 4 of this manual for more information.

To view the Switch’s current IP settings, click Administration > IP Address, as shown below:


To manually assign the Switch’s IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway address:

1. Select Manual from the Get IP From drop-down menu.

2. Enter the appropriate IP Address and Subnet Mask.

3. If you will manage the Switch from the subnet on which it is installed, you can leave the default address ( in this field.

4. If no VLANs have been previously configured on the Switch, you can use the default VLAN Name. The default VLAN contains all of the Switch ports as members. If VLANs have been previously configured on the Switch, you will need to enter the VLAN Name of the VLAN that contains the port connected to the management station that will access the Switch. The Switch will allow management access from stations with the same VID listed here.

NOTE: The Switch’s factory default IP address is with a subnet mask of and a default gateway of

To use the BOOTP or DHCP protocols to assign the Switch an IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway address:
Use the Get IP From pull-down menu to choose from BOOTP or DHCP. This selects how the Switch will be assigned an IP address.

IP MTU Settings

The IP MTU Settings window is used to configure the IP layer MTU settings on the Switch. The MTU is the largest size of IP datagram which may be transferred using a specific data link connection. The MTU value is a design parameter of a LAN and is a mutually agreed value (i.e. both ends of a link agree to use the same specific value) for most WAN links. The size of MTU may vary greatly between different links. Instead of making routers fragment packets, an end system could try to find out the largest IP packet that may be sent to a specific destination.

When one IP host wants to transmit an IP datagram, it is usually preferable that the datagrams be of the largest size that does not require fragmentation anywhere along the path from the source to the destination. The path MTU is equal to the minimum MTUs of each hop in the path.

To configure the Switch’s current IP MTU settings, click Administration > IP MTU Settings, as shown below:


IP Interface Name:Specifies the name of the IP Interface to be used.

IP MTU (512-1712):The user can configure each interface’s IP MTU. If the user does not designate an MTU value when creating an interface, the default value of 1500 will be used.

    Hi, thanks for the info of this device, can you explain a little bit if the SFP ports can be configured with vlan IDs? I mean, if it’s possible to assign a vlan number to the SFP ports that are connected using fiber to other fiber switches.
