NetScreen Connected to Cisco Switch Issue.

How should I set my Cisco Switch Speed/Duplex settings for ports connected to a NetScreen 5GT Firewall. I usually lock my ports to 100Full on both a Pix and Switch port interfaces. Otherewise you'll have the standard Cisco issue that occurs when running auto/auto.

Thanks.

If you want to lock your ports speed and duplex you can.  The NetScreen 5GT uses 10/100 interfaces so if your switch port is also 10/100, you can set both device ports to 100 full.  Remember to manually set the speed and duplex on both devices.

If running 10/100 on both ends:

interface fastethernet0/1
speed 100
duplex full

Personally, I've never had a problem using auto-negotiation with Cisco devices.

The auto-negotiate issues on Cisco are quite old, and were fixed a long time ago. I would just leave them set to auto. In fact, our servers run a lot better when we leave things set to auto than when we hard-code them.
