Configuring and Managing Ports 81
Resetting a Port
You can reset a port by toggling its link state and PoE state. MSS disables the
port’s link and PoE (if applicable) for at least one second, then reenables
them. This feature is useful for forcing a MAP that is connected to two WX
switches to reboot using the port connected to the other switch.
To reset a port, use the following command:
reset port port-list
You can use CLI commands to display the following port information:
Port configuration and status
You also can configure MSS to display and regularly update port statistics
in a separate window.
Displaying Port Configuration and Status
To display port configuration and status information, use the following
display port status [port-list]
To display information for all ports, type the following command:
WX1200# display port status
Port Name Admin Oper Config Actual Type Media
1 1 up up auto 100/full network 10/100BaseTx
2 2 up down auto network 10/100BaseTx
3 3 up down auto network 10/100BaseTx
4 4 up down auto network 10/100BaseTx
5 5 up up auto 100/full ap 10/100BaseTx
6 6 up up auto 100/full network 10/100BaseTx
7 7 up down auto network 10/100BaseTx
8 8 up down auto network 10/100BaseTx
In this example, three of the switch’s ports, 1, 5, and 6, have an
operational status of up, indicating the links on the ports are available.
Ports 1 and 6 are network ports. Port 5 is a MAP access port.
