This feature displays
current port configurations. Ports can also be configured using this
Port: This is the
logical port number for this row.
Link: The current
link state is displayed graphically. Green indicates the link is up and red
that it is down.
Speed: Current Link Speed. Provides the current link speed of the
Speed: Selects any available link speed for the given switch port.
Only speeds supported by the specific port is shown. Possible speeds are:
Disabled: Disables the switch port operation.
Auto: Port auto negotiating speed with the link
partner and selects the highest speed that is compatible with the link partner.
10Mbps HDX: Forces the cu port in 10 Mbps half duplex
: Forces the cu port in 10 Mbps full duplex mode.
100Mbps HDX: Forces the cu port in 100 Mbps half
100Mbps FDX: Forces the cu port in 100 Mbps full
1Gbps FDX: Forces the port in 1 Gbps full duplex .
SFP_Auto_AMS: Automatically determines the speed of
the SFP. There is no standardized way to do SFP auto detect, so here it is done
by reading the SFP rom. Due to the missing standardized way of doing SFP auto
detect some SFPs might not be detectable. The port is set in AMS mode. Cu port
is set in
100-FX: SFP port is in 100-FX speed. Cu port is
1000-X: SFP port is in 1000-X speed. Cu port is
disabled. Ports in AMS mode with 1000-X speed has Cu port preferred. Ports in
AMS mode with 1000-X speed has fiber port preferred. Ports in AMS mode with
100-FX speed has fiber port preferred.
When duplex is set as auto that is, Autonegotiation, the port will only
advertise the specified duplex as either Fdx or Hdx to the link partner. By
default port will advertise all the supported duplexes if the Duplex is Auto.
When Speed is set as auto that is, Autonegotiation, the port will only
advertise the specified speeds (Speed10 Speed100 Speed1000) to the link
partner. By default port will advertise all the supported speeds if speed is
set as Auto.
When Auto Speed is selected on a port, this section indicates the flow control
capability that is advertised to the link partner. When a fixed-speed setting
is selected, that is what is used. The Current Rx column indicates whether
pause frames on the port are obeyed, and the Current Tx column indicates
whether pause frames on the port are transmitted. The Rx and Tx settings are
determined by the result of the last Auto-Negotiation.
Check the configured
column to use flow control. This setting is related to the setting for
Configured Link Speed.
Size: Enter the maximum frame size allowed for the switch port,
including FCS. The range is 1518-10240 bytes.
Mode: Configure port transmit collision behavior.
Discard: Discard frame after 16 collisions(default).
