Wired Clients

A wired client is defined as a client connected to an Instant On device that supports Ethernet switching. Wired clients are categorized based on the following scenarios:

Figure 1  Wired Client Scenarios

  • Scenario 1: The Instant On device connected to the Instant On switching device will not be shown as a wired client.
  • Scenario 2: The server will be shown as an edge wired client.

VMs running on the server might report additional MAC addresses to the same Ethernet port. In such cases, each of the MAC addresses will be displayed as a wired client.

  • Scenario 3: The edge device will be shown as an edge wired client.
  • Scenario 4: The third-party infrastructure device will be shown as an infrastructure wired client.
  • Scenario 5: The wired device connected to the third-party infrastructure device will not be shown as a wired client.
  • Scenario 6: The infrastructure device will be shown as an edge wired client.
  • Scenario 7: The wired device will be shown as a wired client.
