Not familar with that switch so I am not sure about configuring the ports on that box, however here is a link for the manual you need:


Also, just as an FYI...The current firmware for your switch is listed as C.09.22 found here:


I took a quick look at the manual, if you do a search of the pdf manual for "ports" there is a ton of references, hopefully you can find what you are looking for there. If not,let us know here and we will try to help you further. Looks like a decent switch to be working with. :)
