3com 3300 settings

Hi, we had a long power outage last week and a lot of problems since.

I personally have never altered anything on the switches but a predecessor could have, could any one tell me what should be set and what not on the swithch

broadcast storm control, fast ip etc etc

cisco 2600 all switches are 3com, and we connect to an NT domain with a bit of IPX thrown in and lots of ICA traffic.

I know what each one deos roughly but not sure if i should be using it or not,

this particular switch has all our servers on so dont want to "play" with settings

Assuming it's a 10/100 switch, best practice is all ports with fast STP - I think Cisco calls it "portfast", all ports 100 Mb Full Duplex.  I like to put rate limiting on broadcast and multicast, but that's up to you.  I also like to disable ports except those which are in use - this disallows ..."other people" ... to simply plug into your network without telling you.  Also, it's real helpful to name your ports - usually something that refers to what they're plugged into.
