Question

Environment: Cisco Content Security Email Security Appliance (ESA) or Web Security Appliance (WSA), and all versions of AsyncOS.

AsyncOS allows you to change media speed settings based on your network configuration. The command that allows you to set media speed is etherconfig. You have the option to select one of these seven speed settings:

  1. Autoselect
  2. 10baseT/UTP half-duplex
  3. 10baseT/UTP full-duplex
  4. 100baseTX half-duplex
  5. 100baseTX full-duplex
  6. 1000baseTX half-duplex
  7. 1000baseTX full-duplex

Log on to your Cisco Content Security Appliance using CLI and follow the steps outlined here:
