Reference Dell Powerconnect 6224

Hello, we need help to choose the right device of balancing of affordable to work with dell switches load 6224 we have two switches with two dedicated company comcast internet (2 5 static IP gateways each) low 100meg 20up we have a load of 400 traffic +, we see that there is Load Balancer ADC like Barracuda, Kemp etc. have no need for security with a cost of one year to the next we have just need a good load balancer with some security as ddos to effectively distribute traffic while ensuring high performance for games & voice servers hosting we have a large community make world wide everything is free... What would you use? Thank you

Sonicwall Dell devices provide failover and load balancing. Not sure that they meet all of your requirements, but interesting look in.

Your post on Spiceworks had some excellent feedback from the community.

See you soon

  • Proxy-arp or local proxy arp? Reference Dell Powerconnect 6224

    We need allow some customers to resolve the mac address of a server that is located in a different range of addresses, VLAN and IP.

    I thought that the addition of the ip proxy-arp interface command vlan should do the job, but this command seems to be activated by default according to the reference guide, after that I tried to add the command he always show up on a running show. Which confirmed my thoughts. While I was looking for the solution that I saw another command that does not appear in the cli reference guide: local-proxy-arp ip. But since I'm not sure of what will make this command I am careful to hit just the command on the interface VLAN.

    How others send their arp on powerconnect 6224 requests?

    After reading my own source again, I realized that the thing that I want is not possible. It goes beyond the need to divide the network into segments. If all the query arp is transferred to other networks, there is a benefit less: you want to limit the broadcast domain.

    Static ARP is the thing I'm going to need to be implemented to solve this problem.

    Thanks for the clarification anyway.

  • Reference Dell Powerconnect 6224 DVLAN-mining (Q in Q)

    I have two sites, one is our data center and the other is our office.

    I want to be able to access the data center to the office network, I need access for 2 VLANs, the ISP has already installed it is fine for this and now there's only the part configuration

    At the office, there is a PC5548 and data center, there is one PC6224.

    Office on the incoming port configuration is:

    tengigabitethernet1/0/1 interface
    switchport mode trunk

    The port for outgoing data center conf is:

    interface ethernet 1/g22
    Description "TELEV6RK".
    switchport mode general
    VLAN allowed switchport General add 3000
    dvlan-tunnel mode

    This does not work, how do I configure ports, do I have to configure all ports or only 1 port IDE oucederomsurlesecondport 5548 and 1 on 6224?

    I got an answer from Dell technical support, on how to do it:

    1. If the marking through ISP is different from DOT1Q then you must change it on the two switches using the command global dvlan-tunnel ethertype and options there are (dot1q, vman or custom)

    2 port 1 and 2 must be port trunk who accept only the 3000 VLAN. Here are the ports that are connected to the ISP.

    3 ports 3 and 4 should be dvlan-tunnel mode configured on them and configured as switchport access VIRTUAL 3000 LAN mode. These are ports that are connected to switches that are for production at both sites.

    4 ports 5 and 6 on other switches must be configured as trunk with tagged VLANs you want to transfer through ISP in VLAN 3000. These are the ports located on the switch of production.

    The topology is here:

    I hope that now everyone will have its operation :) Thanks for the help.

  • How to access the management of VLANs with a different virtual LAN (Dell powerconnect 6224)


    DELL powerconnect 6224 reference.

    I want to access the management of a different VIRTUAL LAN VLAN.

    The management of VLANS is 100 of VLAN. not the routing

    My computer is vlan 60 ( and I want to connect via ssh or http ( to manage my switch.

    Thank you for your help on the command line

    The management of VLANS on the 6224 is not routable. So, you will not be able to access VLAN 100 from any other VLAN. However, you can manage the switch from other VLAN IP addresses. So if VLAN 60 has an IP of you can http and ssh to it. And if the VLAN routing is enabled you have access to on the other VLAN.

  • Slave keeps restarting after unstacking-Dell PowerConnect 6224 switch

    Hello everyone;

    I have 2 switches (PowerConnect 6224) on the other. Because we are them stacked like we got new switches, we decided to remove the cables from the battery and use them as individual switches.

    So I tried to unstacking the first switches using CLI, but it does not, simply, nothing happens. So I took the cards accumulation off both switches and removed the stacking cables.

    Switch works fine, but the slave is restarted.

    I correct the following:

    Startup options, tried to reset, restore the production parameters, format... They look successful the config looks like this is done and once the switch starts it asks me if I want to run the Setup Wizard, but it will just freeze and restart.

    is there a way to fix it? or the switch is dead?

    All ideas are welcome

    Thank you

    I would like to download the latest firmware.

    Disconnect all other devices from the switch and follow the instructions of XMODEM that are included in the download to Flash the firmware.

  • Reference Dell PowerConnect 2848 OID for CPU time and memory

    Hi all

    This is my first post in this forum. I searched all the messages that can solve my problems, but I could not find so if there is already an existing post and I couldn't find it please guide me to it.

    My case is. We have a few Dell PowerConnect 28xx switches in our network. We want to monitor things like the CPU, the temperature, the use of the RAM usage. We use Solarwinds IpMonitor monitoring tool. I downloaded the MIB, I could find the download of Firmware from Dell drivers and downloads page. I went through the entire MIB, but I couldn't find an OID for the foregoing.

    So if anyone can help me please what OID is used for usage of CPU and RAM temperature it will really help me.

    Please let us know in case we need more information on my side.

    Thank you

    Frank Moreau

    I did use SNMP on the 28xx but here are some various sensor OID, I used for the N-series, as well as some older models Powerconnect.  I don't know if they will work for the 2xxx, but you can try one or two and see if they work.

    N - Series (FW 6.2 and later versions) temperature OID

    62xx (3.0.x.x firmware or later-, some may also work with 2.x firmware)
    Temperature OID

    Are the OID to use CPU for N-Series switches (total free memory) (total memory) (table for the following...) (index) (name of the process using CPU) (% CPU used by the corresponding process)
    . (cumulation of all the activity of the CPU) (CPU utilization shows 5 s, 60 s and 300s).

    OIDs memory
    Power supply OID
    OIDs of fan

    35xx (2.0.x.x or later firmware)
    Temperature OID
    OIDs of CPU
    OIDs memory
    P.S. The OID
    OIDs of fan

    for old firmware - if the 35xx above does not work:
    Temperature (Celsius)

    I hope this helps.


  • Reference Dell PowerConnect 3524 - "SW3P_callback_rx_frame - arp - scrapped intervention."

    Hello everyone.

    The company I work for, I test switches to see who is good and who is bad. I've already marked the switch in question as 'bad' for these mistakes - but I've never seen this error before. My colleagues have not either. Therefore, I ask the community what kind of error is what it means and whether it is potentially fixable.

    My device is a Dell PowerConnect 3524. He is currently out of warranty.

    What I did: I have deleted the startup configuration and then run the Setup Wizard. I put an IP address, gateway, and password. The rest, I left the default values. This configuration works on all switches that I have ever tested, including this model, so I think that this configuration is not serious.

    Then I plug in an ethernet cable in all ports and the other end into a very small 5 port switch that also has other trendy items above, the phone and my main computer. They all get internet, I don't think that there is a problem.

    I plug another cable in another port of the switch and the other end in a laptop sitting on top of the switch (my laptop test).

    I start ping the local firewall and run it with the "-t" parameter so it does not stop.

    It is fine for about 5-10 minutes usually. I can trade ports and others and she'll pick up ping soon and do what it is supposed to. After plugging into the wrong port, (7 or 8), I get the error "SW3P_callback_rx_frame - intervention arp - put the scrapped." and cannot pass traffic. PuTTY shows that the connection is established and transfer, but the ping is not possible.

    I am only an intern, this switch is not vital and will be sent to the "cemetery" and all my business done with switches will be. I am just curious to know what it is. Anyone know what it is and what could be done to solve the problem?

    Thank you for your time!

    I couldn't find any relevant information on this error message. With errors that occur only on specific ports and a new configuration, it really sounds as a kind of material error. Will there be another message that accompany this message? If you haven't already done so, re-flashing the firmware of the switch can help ensure that the message is not caused by an image that has become corrupt.

  • How Reboot/restart Dell Powerconnect 6224


    My company has 2 powerconnect 6224, 1 is the master and 1 slave, do I know how could restart/reboot my switch in the GUI?

    Can I use the cli to restart/reboot command and what is the command line.

    Thank you

    Using the CLI to recharge the battery, you must use the # reload command. You can add the number of the switch in the command reload members of chimneys. charge # 1, # reload 2.

    You can also use the command console (config-battery) #initiate failover. This command forces a warm restart of the battery. The unit of backup succeeds the new management unit without clear status of material on the stack members. The original management unit restarts.

    In the graphical user interface, you can reboot the switch with entering the system > general > reset. You can also start a recovery using System > stacking > NSF summary. Initiate failover will begin a warm reboot of the switch.

  • Reference Dell PowerConnect 2824 remove connections, odd led models


    We are noticed on some of our Dell PowerConnect 2824 switches that our devices are connected to the switch suddenly disconnected.  Our devices are a network of small size with the switch, where we connect up to 12 devices and use DHCP to assign IP addresses to the devices.  We also monitor the network with a Windows laptop.  We have also seen times where the switch itself seems to be restarted and shows amber LED light up successively from left to right on the top row of ports, then return on the bottom row.  I confirmed that we use version software for the switch in question.

    We have also seen situations where all, except one device remains connected, but when trying to reconnect to the device has fallen, it seems that the switch seems to completely ignore the device regardless of the port where we connect to the switch.  We tried other cables, but the problem persists.  It's the kind of behavior that I could wait if the MAC addresses are not unique, but all of our devices have all custom MAC addresses.

    Another issue is that we use a very short lease period of one minute.  I don't know if this will get us in trouble.

    If you need more specific information, I'll try to answer your questions.

    Thank you.


    Hi Bob,

    If it happens on several switches it is probably not a problem with the hardware switch. It could be a matter of Spanning Tree where it lacks a Hello and due to the lease really short DHCP is originally from the port to close before it can restore a link. You can try to turn STP or enabling quick link on the ports for end devices.

    Why do you have the DHCP lease on so little time for only 12 aircraft? It would add a lot of network traffic. You can try and have some machines on static IP and see if it still falls these ports.

  • Reference Dell PowerConnect 3048


    I have a Dell PowerConnect 3048 I want to use it on my home network. For now, my network is small, but as the days pass, he has grown. The problem, I'm running, even after the request of Google, is that I have a hard time finding a way to be able to configure this option. The switch has the power, and I also have the DB - 9 to Ethernet cable from the console.

    For this particular option, the console port is the business end of DB-9 while the end of Ethernet connects to what I presume, a computer. Again, the problem is when I connect the cable from the console of the computer, the switch and use HyperTerminal or PuTTY, I can't speak to this switch. I don't understand what I am doing wrong?

    A lot of reading and watching videos, I understand that some switches have a console, but on this particular switch Ethernet port, it doesn't have such a port. Please guide me on how I can talk to this switch so that I can get configured for my home network.

    Kind regards

    The original cable was a db9 to db9 cable. You can try another cable, like a db9 to usb.

    The switch's default IP address is Then you could try a telnet connection too. See that you have a better success rate.

  • Reference Dell Powerconnect 3024

    I just bought a Dell powerconnect 3024 on ebay that apparently has been decommissioned corporate. Based on the serial number, warranty or service with Dell expired? Or the seller or the company, that he came remembers the password so the only alternative is to reset the switch, but there is no reset button. No one seems to remember the password and I need to get and put in place. Dell will not help not because of the warranty has expired. Help. For reasons of security if you want to send me the instructions that will be very well. email is [email protected].

  • Dell Powerconnect 6224 Default VLAN VLAN reference and management


    two questions-

    1. what exactly he wants to tell the VLAN by default is not routable or VLAN 1 is not routable? I can connect to my 6224 a different subnet and its got nothing configured except default values and an IP address to this VLAN

    2. I have a stack of 2 x 6224 s, 95% completed and all on the default VLAN 1. I won't use VLAN 1. So I create a VLAN 10 and "range Ethernet all interface ' followed ' switchport access vlan 10"»

    Now I can not connect on the network. That's happened? How can I move everything cleanly on VLAN 10 and it is possible via the network or must it be done with a cable from the console?

    Thank you

    Hello, by default, the management interface is in VLAN 1, if you want to she be changed to VLAN 10 please use the command 'ip address vlan 10' in the Setup mode and check the status of management interface using the command 'show ip interface '.
