Administratively down

What does it mean when an interface shows administratively down?

Thanks.

Re: Administratively down

The command that you are looking for is:

interface hardware_id hardware_speed [shutdown]

For instance, this command will enable port ethernet0:

interface ethernet0 auto

This command will disable it:

interface ethernet0 auto shutdown

Here is the command reference for Pix 6.3 for the 'interface' command:

Re: Administratively down

The port is closed - to open is issues the "no shut" command in the interface config. To place it in admin down again issues the "shut" command in the interface.

Re: Administratively down

Thanks Andrew that was very helpful.

Would you happen to know the correct usage to issue a no shut command for ethernet0 on a PIX 515e running 6.3. I am in conf mode.

Thanks again.
