Cumulus Linux on Dell Switches: Spine-Leaf Architecture & OSPF on Unnumbered Interfaces

Sunday, January 18th, 2015

In a prior blog, Cumulus Linux on Dell Networking Switches, I demonstrated how to install Cumulus Linux on a Dell S6000 switch and do some basic configuration. In this blog, I’ll demonstrate how to configure routing on Dell switches running Cumulus Linux. The example covered demonstrates a Spine-Leaf architecture with OSPF on unnumbered interfaces. In this example 2 x Dell S6000-ON and 2 x Dell S4810-ON switches [Cumulus Linux 2.1.1] are utilized. The lab setup is depicted by the network diagram below. (more…)

Blocking Hackers From Accessing Your Switch via Telnet/SSH

It’s amazing how much rattling at the doors and attempted intrusions companies become accustomed to seeing on their networks. Here I show a simple way to block telnet/SSH access to your switch. First, you should never use telnet to manage your switch over the Internet because the traffic is sent unencrypted and it is therefore insecure; SSH is the better option. Perhaps you only want to manage the switch from an internal network or only want to allow or block some hosts from using telnet/ssh. Below, I block all telnet/ssh access to the switch. I’m using a Dell Force10 S50N switch [FTOS 8.4.2.6]. (more…)
