if you are alone and have to determine which switch port your server ends ... here we go

for i in $(seq 300) ; do ethtool -s eth0 autoneg on ; sleep 2 ; done
use this comand to see which switch port your network interface is using. but remind, there is no network traffic for 10 minutes or how long you run the comand. if you start the comand via ssh, port will come up again after the "for loop" has endet

What Others Think

I am completely new to this root server check as well as the commands we give. And I am really excited to know it's working condition form here. And i would like to include it on my http://www.oneworld365.org/blog/should-you-trust-essay-writing-websites project. I hope i will get the best results.
