Smartport Type Settings on Sx500 Series Stackable Switches
A Smartport is an interface to which user-defined or built-in macros could be applied. Macros help to quickly configure the switch to support communication requirements and utilize various features of the network devices. Network access and QoS requirements depend on the device to which the interface is connected (IP phone, printer, router, or access point). The Smarport feature allows you to save and share common configurations. A macro is a script of CLI commands.
This article explains how to edit the smartport type settings and view the macro source on Sx500 Series Stackable Switches.
Note: Macros can be defined with the CLI of the switch.
