Configuration and Status Fields

The main area of the screen displays the fields you use to configure or monitor the switch. On pages that contain configuration options, you can input information into fields or select options from drop-down menus.

Each page contains access to the HTML-based help that explains the fields to configure or view on the page. Many pages also contain command buttons.
