How to test ethernet ports on a Enterprise switch

To test Ethernet ports on an enterprise switch, you can perform the following steps:

  1. Connect a cable from the port you want to test to a computer or another device.
  2. Use a network scanner tool to verify the link status and obtain the IP address assigned to the port.
  3. Ping the IP address of the connected device to verify connectivity.
  4. Use a network monitoring tool to check the port's statistics, such as packets transmitted, packets received, and error rate.
  5. 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.
