HP Procurve 5412zl


I wonder if someone can help me please.

I have HP Procurve 5412zl network switch on my network and would like to setup some WAN routing. The firmware version on it is K.15.17.0007.

To get this configured, I have been requested to assign an IP address to one of the Ports on my 5412zl switch, so that the MPLS equipment can be plugged into this port. Furthermore, I have been asked to setup some static routes on the switch in order to faciltitate that WAN connection via the MPLS equipment.

To this end, I have logged into the switch (via Telnet) to try to assign an IP Address to a single port, but I keep getting the error message 'Invalid Input' when I type either Interface J1 or Interface J1 ip address at the config# prompt.

Therefore, I am not sure if this switch allows the assignment of an IP address to a single port, though it is a Layer 3 switch. Perhaps, I will have to create a VLAN then add an IP address to the VLAN then assign the single to port to it?

Please help, thank you in advance.

Yes, you need to create a VLAN, assing the ip address to the VLAN, and untagg/tag that port.

You cannot assign an IP Address to any port on Procurve switch
