You can configure network port properties for network equipment in Genomes.
  1. Open the Genomes pane.
  2. Select a piece of network equipment.
  3. Click on the Network pane in the Properties section and perform the edits for the component in Genomes.
    1. Click Add or Edit.
    2. Select the type, port range (first port and the amount of ports in the range), and the network speed if relevant.
    3. Repeat the above two steps for all port ranges needed. For example, a switch could be configured like this.
Type Start (First port in range) Count (Amount or ports)
RJ45 1 16
RJ45 17 16
RJ45 33 16
Fiber Uplink 1 4

The configured properties will apply to all pieces of this equipment added to the layout subsequently.

Tip: To change the properties for one specific component only rather than the product type in Genomes, right-click the component in the layout. The same options are available but they will only apply to the one component.
