L1 Bithead

I have a question.

What is The difference between up, down and auto mode for link state?

 

I know that Down mode is like shutdown.

But I can't understand The difference between Up and Aut mode.

 

Please teach for me.

in auto mode the interface will only show as 'up' when a peer (like a switch, router or workstation) is connected to the port using a proper Ethernet cable

in up mode, the interface will always show as up (green) even with no host connected to it


hope this helps

yes, if you set the interface to 'up' it will always be in an up state, even without a network cable in it

That's a big help!

 

Up mode will put link state into Up state , won't it?

 

Thank you very much for your help.
