Hi, depending on the IOS and type of unit you have you could very well support flow control on your trunk links. Issue the "show interface capabilities" command and the switch will list the abilities of each port for you. HTH
I'm running CatOS. The port shows to have the capabilities. However, I was concerned it might give me an error when trying to enable flow control since the port is a dot1q trunk. I can't find any info on Cisco's website saying it isn't possible, so I'm thinking it will work.
I'll give it a try during our next maintenance window.
Hi Erik, on the cat-os your command maybe show port abilities, you can do the show port ? to confrim the correct syntext. Trunk link have to have the exact configurations on both sides to work properly. If you get an error check the other sides config for any mismatches HTH
The main reason I was thinking the switch might give me an error; even though the switch port shows to have flow control capabilities, is trunk links act a bit different. In the past, the switch has spit out an error at me when trying to enable certain protocols on the trunk links; even though the switch port shows it's capable.
