Does anyone know how to disable flow-control on a 2851 Gigabit Ethernet interface? I do not want pause frames being sent to the switch which has flow-control turned off.

I might be mistaken, but I thought pause frames were only sent if the other side confirmed it understood them.

On switchport, the following line appears:

input flow-control is off, output flow-control is unsupported

Appears then that flow control was not negotiated to be active?
