  • Patent number: 11362880
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for operating a network, wherein at least two network devices are connected to one another in the network via a data line and exchange data via this data line, wherein each network device is fixedly assigned an independent MAC address, wherein a network management station also controls the configuration and/or the operation of the network, characterised in that a query is sent from the network management station by multicast by means of the SNMP protocol to the network devices so as to query the configuration parameters of the network devices and/or configure the queried network device by SNMP.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20140185624
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for redundantly and reactionlessly connecting networks to each other, such as communication networks, particularly Ethernet networks, wherein there is a plurality of network devices which communicate and exchange data with each other via data lines in the network which has at least one, preferably a plurality of network segments, characterized in that at least more than one RSTP protocol instance is implemented on the network devices for coupling network segments so that one network segment can be connected per RSTP protocol instance.
