Hi Exps,

One of the ports on our 3com switch just died today. Apart from physically plugging my Laptop into the switch to check for life can anyone advise how to identify the fault / reset the port?

Cheers

Depending on the switch model you can look in either the web interface or command line to see the status of the port.  Plugging a known good device in to the port is somewhat of a good test.  Was a device in the port when it "died"?
