Controlling PoE by Port - Max HD4


#1

Is there a way to control which ports have PoE on the Max HD4 when using only one PoE activation kit? Currently only ports 1-4 are supplying PoE regardless of which port I connect the PoE power supply to, and I’m trying to activate PoE on ports 5-8 instead without requiring a 2nd poe kit.

Is this possible via software?

For current hardware revision (1 and 2), this feature is by hardware design. With single PoE kit (regardless which DC Jack is connected), only LAN Port 1-4 can supply PoE output. If you need LAN Port 5-8 to supply PoE output, then you need to add second PoE Kit.

Not what we wanted to hear, but thank you for the clarification Wei.
