I have a NetOptics ByPass switch with a 10/100/1000BASE-T interface connected to a GigabitEthernet switch port on a 6509 IOS switch. The interface on the NetOptics is set to 1000 and auto. On the switch, the port is set with the following commands:
I asked the network admin to have the switch port changed to auto on the switch, but he says that it will not make any difference. Is that true? there is no difference between the above commands and having auto negotiation on for the switch port?
