Hello,
I am new to 3COM and need to disable flow control on one port, or at least see if is enabled or not. Can any one provide step-by-step if possible to get to where I need  on the 3COM to accomplish this? Cisco I can handle but recently come in contact with the 3COM and have some trouble.

Thank you,
Marek

What I also found is that I can use the web interface to check the info on the switch. I am including the snapshot of the port info for reference. I think I need to disable both HD and FD Flow Control and deselect Flow Control in the Advertisement for that port. Is that it?

You don't have to disable adverstisement (that just tells other switches what mode it is in), but you would disable it for HD and FD (half duplex and full duplex).

Check the Management Interface Reference Guide.

Good luck,

I will be leaving overseas today and I didn't have time to test the solution yet. I will approve it for now and then will get back to it when I get back.

Thanks for your help!
