Port Connection Question

Hi

I've got a fibre connection in one of my switch ports but I don't know which one. How can I tell if a port has a connection attached to it?

Incidentally all other ports are not being used only one port has a physical connection to it.

Thanks

Dan

Re: Port Connection Question

You can check your ports staus with the following command:

show ip interface brief

The output is up up where your interface is in up (Layer1) and up (Layer 2) state.

For detailed info use

show interfaces "inerface"

command.

And if your device connects to another Cisco device and cdp is enabled you can use:

show cdp neighbors

command also.

bye

Re: Port Connection Question

i think dan you can check it out using show port command and you can have the clear idea about the port status... and then you can go for the show interface A so you can have clear idea of port status.
