View Full Version : Full-Duplex

04-13-2003, 09:25 AM
Has anyone experienced any trouble getting an Xserv to properly auto-negotiate a Full-Duplex 100 Mbit connection when connected to a Cisco switch? It used to work just fine under OSX 10.1.5, but seems to have been broken in 10.2 and above.

Someone at Apple explained that the trouble was with the Cisco switch. Sounds like finger pointing to me...

Also -- Does anyone know how to force the connection to Full-Duplex, so the suto-negotiation bug can simply be avoided? In standard UNIX variants, there are ways to force the connection speeds. I have yet to find them in OS-X.

You might want to download Cocktail. It has a GUI for setting the connection speed in Terminal among other things. Heres a link http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/18282
