Re: How to make eth5/SFP a switch port on EdgeRouter X SFP v1.9.7?

 

This post from June 2018 describes cli commands to explicitly configure the SFP module on the ERX-SFP. Might be worth a try.

You can see in the screenshot v1.7.1, so the first port of call is to upgrade to something more recent, which does not have a range of vulnerabilities and matches those of people who have a working config. The output of "show interfaces ethernet eth5 sfp" would be helpful.

It's been a while. OP has edited the post title to point to v1.9 - can we get over that, please?

A while? The screenshot the OP put up yesterday still shows v1.7.1 and he has not posted since.

Sorry for the slow reply....

 

I'm now on 1.10.8:

The port seems to be up.  I can now only select 1Gig.

This will work fine for me.  Just in case anyone else struggles with this......I tried several intermediate firmware versions that did not work.  It seems to center around the speed setting.  At 1.10.0, the port was unhappy with the speed setting at less than 1000 but the configuration wouldn't let me choose 1000.   When I finally went to 1.10.8 it reduced my choices for speed to the one option you see above.  And that worked.

 

Thank you for eveyone's help.  This forum is a great resource,
