A port test is an optional test that can be run on client ports to ensure that they have a good connection to the network. Running a port test requires a client to be connected to the port that is being tested. For this reason, port testing is normally done during room mapping after the port is assigned a room number (before disconnecting). Refer to the "Mapping Rooms" section.
If you want to change the default port test parameters, follow this procedure.
