Object Description
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.
Current Link Speed Provides the current link speed of the port.
Configured Link 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 mode.
  • 10Mbps FDX - Forces the cu port in 10 Mbps full-duplex mode.
  • 100Mbps HDX - Forces the cu port in 100 Mbps half-duplex mode.
  • 100Mbps FDX - Forces the cu port in 100 Mbps full-duplex mode.
  • 1Gbps FDX - Forces the port in 1 Gbps full-duplex mode.
Flow Control 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.

Maximum Frame Size Enter the maximum frame size allowed for the switch port, including FCS.
Excessive Collision Mode Configure port transmit collision behavior.
  • Discard: Discard frame after 16 collisions (default).
  • Restart: Restart backoff algorithm after 16 collisions.
