Fantastic switch! Embedded Linux extensible.
on January 15, 2014
Love this switch. Let me count the ways:
(1) Very well constructed.
(2) 8 gig ports WITH POE.
(3) Solid performance.
(4) Very nice web interface.
(5) Runs Linux!
(6) You can ssh in and control the ports (mostly undocumented, so you'll need to Google a bit)
(7) Has ~64MB ram, and ~50MB of that is not in use on my switch
(8) Persistent storage in /etc/persistent/ (to persist, run: cfgmtd -w -p /etc/)
5-8 are really great. For example, I was able to match the running Linux version with OpenWRT kamikaze and simply downloaded the dnsmasq package, extracted the dnsmasq binary from the package and scp'ed it over to the switch. With a bit of config, I now have a powerful DNS and DHCP server running on the switch.
