How to test ethernet ports on a Enterprise switch
To test Ethernet ports on an enterprise switch, you can perform the following steps:
- Connect a cable from the port you want to test to a computer or another device.
- Use a network scanner tool to verify the link status and obtain the IP address assigned to the port.
- Ping the IP address of the connected device to verify connectivity.
- Use a network monitoring tool to check the port's statistics, such as packets transmitted, packets received, and error rate.
- If possible, run a speed and duplex test to verify the port is operating at the correct speed and duplex setting.
Note: The exact steps may vary depending on the specific enterprise switch model and the tools available to you.
