No connectivity - ports up and down?

I have a 2950 switch which we use to for connectivity to VOIP phones and terminals/pcs on the floors. At random times during the day maybe twice 2-3 hour span, we lose connectivity between two of the terminals and our server which is connected to the switch. When I say "lose connectivity" I mean the terminal is unable to reach our server(we have desktop vitalization) that hosts the virtual hosting software. All the terminals have static IP addresses assigned. The ports on the switch show no activity what so ever - at one stage I did see did an amber light blink every 2-3 seconds .This happened on the terminals that could not connect, but that has not repeated itself. Below I have included a sh int of a port that is currently down. The port could be down most of the day and then start working all of a sudden!

I don't know if a problem with the switch or port or communication with the server. Out of all the 12 terminals we have 10 of them have no problem connecting to the server through the same switch. When pinging from my pc to any of the two statically assigned IPs  - host unreachable is returned.

Any help would be appreciated

There are some errors on the interface. Can you post the same results when it is up? It looks like it may be coming up at half duplex.

Collin,

attached is the brief for the port been up...I can see  that it is up and blinking green however on the terminal the screen is  in a "frozen" state. When I rebooted the terminal it is trying to connect to the server - again the port is blinking green.

Anybody see anything wrong with the port output?

John-

Have you tried replacing the cable between the switch and the server?
