duplex [auto|half|full]


duplex [auto|half|full]
auto Enables automatic duplexity on an interface port. The port automatically detects whether it should run in full or half-duplex mode. (default setting)
half Sets the port to half-duplex mode. Allows communication in one direction only at any given time. When selected, data is sent over the port, then immediately data is received from the direction in which the data was transmitted.
full Sets the port to full-duplex mode. Allows communication in both directions simultaneously. When selected, the port can send data while receiving data as well.
