Last Updated:Apr 07, 2024

SAG-1000 devices support port role assignment. You can assign roles to ports based on your business requirements. This topic describes how to modify port roles in the Smart Access Gateway (SAG) console.


An SAG-1000 device is deployed.

Background information

SAG devices support five port roles: WAN, LAN, leased line, management (MGT), and not assigned. By default, port 5 is the WAN port and port 2 is the management port. The management port cannot be modified. For more information about the management port, see Configure the management port. The following procedure describes how to manage the other ports.


  1. Log on to the Smart Access Gateway console.
  2. Use one of the following methods to open the Device Management tab:

    • Click the ID of the SAG instance. On the instance details page, click Device Management.

    • Find the SAG instance and choose 更多 > Device Management in the Actions column.

  3. On the Device Management tab, click Assign Port Roles in the left-side navigation tree.

  4. Find the port that you want to manage and click Edit in the Actions column.

  5. In the Change Port Role dialog box, select a role for the port.

    Not Assigned

    No role is assigned to the port.


    The port is used as a WAN port to connect to the Internet by using dynamically allocated IP addresses, static IP addresses, or PPPoE. For more information, see Configure a WAN port.


    The port is used as a LAN port to connect to on-premises clients or switches by using dynamically allocated IP addresses or static IP addresses. For more information, see Manage a LAN port.

    Leased Line

    The port is used to connect to an Express Connect circuit. For more information, see Configure a leased line port.


    After you modify the port roles in the SAG console, the port roles of both the active and standby devices are updated. The devices are restarted.
