I am having issue with a Firewall attached to our Telco router.
I have been told by the Telco (and had confirmed) that their customer facing interface is force set to 100MB/FULL DUPLEX.
However no matter what I set on the ASA (Auto/Auto or 100/FULL) I still see 100MB/HALF DUPLEX on the show interface command on the ASA. I am also seeing some minor collisions.
Please can someone advise on exactly what the show interface command in this case means; in particular what the bracketed (Half-duplex) refers to???
For information purposes the connection remains active with either setting.
