Hi,

You can change, it's only used for automatic cable type detection, I mean between two swithces normally you have to use straight cable, but with mdix auto you can use cross-over and it works.

If you change this settings on a live port it will not shutdown it.

bye

Re: MDIX AUTO fearure ????

Hi

Thanks for the Ans ,, will it reset the port ???

and is it possible that we enable it Globally on all ports .

or it will enabled on all interface i=on by one

Thanks

Re: MDIX AUTO fearure ????

hi...

no it will not reset the port...

and i dont think so you can enable it globally on all port so you have to go for one by one configuration...

The Auto-MDIX feature is enabled by default on switches running Cisco IOS Release 12.2(18)SE or later. For releases between Cisco IOS Release 12.1(14)EA1 and 12.2(18)SE, the Auto-MDIX feature is disabled by default.

hope this will help you

rate this post if it helps

Correction: Between switches (or any other pair of similar devices), you'd normally have to use a cross-over cable.

Auto-MDX will detect straight-through or cross and adjust the port role accordingly.

FWIW
