The ToughSwitch Carriedelivers reliable passive PoE and fast 10/100/1000 Mbps connectivity to attached Ubiquiti devices and other devices that support passive PoE. To connect your PoE devices, simply enable PoE in the easy-to-use ToughSwitch Configuration Interface. Each port can be individually configured to provide PoE, so both PoE and non-PoE devices can be connected. ToughSwitch PoE Carrier A and B designate the two 8-Port ToughSwitch PoE PROs housed in the rack. This may be useful for the Location setting on the Device tab in the Configuration Interface.

Configuring the ToughSwitch PoE
ToughSwitch A and B have the same default IP address,, so you will need to change the IP address of
at least one ToughSwitch. Follow the instructions in this section to configure one TOUGHSwitch at a time.
1. Configure the Ethernet adapter on your host systemwith a static IP address on the 192.168.1.x subnet (e.g.
2. Launch your web browser. Type the address field. Press enter (PC) or return (Mac).
3. The login screen will appear. Enter ubnt in theUsername and Password fields. Click Login
4. Change the Static Management IP Address to a unique IP address on the Device tab. Click Save Changes.
5. You can enable PoE on the Ports tab and customize additional settings as needed.
6. Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the Management port of ToughSwitch A and connect it to the Management port of ToughSwitch B.
Then repeat steps 1-5 on ToughSwitch B.
Adding the Vlan Go to the VLANS tab on the management page of the switch then click the Add button. Fill in your VLAN ID DO NOT CLICK SAVE CHANGES
Setting up the ports. Expand We are going to set the ports 1-4 for Vlans 200, Ports 5-7 for Vlan1 and have port 8 be the truck. On VLAN1 set ports 1-4 to exclude and port 5-8 to untag. On VALN200 set ports 1-4 to untag and set ports 5-7 to exclude.Set port 8 to Tag on VLAN 200 and untag on VLAN1. It should look something like this.Click Save Changes if you want to add more VLANs and having port 8 as the trunk. Just tagging port 8 on each VLAN.
Conclusion : You should now have working vlans on your tough switch.
