How to keep a switch interface always in the up state?

How can I keep a switch interface always on the up state? I am not sure if I can change the keep alive or what?


Thank you

apply the "no shutdown" command to the interface

What I mean is how can I keep a physical interface on the switch in the upstate. Such as a loopback interface works?

thank you

You could use a loopback plug in that port so it always stays up.  Could you achieve what you need to do by using a loopback interface on the switch (which always remains up)?

IF you need a physical interface up all the time without having to connect another connection to it and a loopback interface will not work create a loopback connector and plug it into the interface.

To make this take a standard rj-45 connector and take 2 wires. one wire goes from pin 1 to pin3 and the second goes from pin 2 to pin 6.

This should do the job for you

I will give that a try. So there is no configuration change that can be done on a switch to keep an interface in the up state?
