    Switching Ethernet Ports


    First a little background...

    I have a Desktop PC that is connected to Dell Switch of 100 ethernet ports. I have a different ethernet source coming out of the first 20 ports.

    What im trying to do is isolate one of the sources coming out of the switch and disable the other 19. I then want to manually run a few tests and then when I decide, I want to switch to another source. (if at 2 goto 3 if at 14 goto 15) How would i began to write a code that would do this?

    Re: Switching Ethernet Ports

    Well i figured out that i can Telnet into the Switch and manually Enable and Disable the selected ports. Which is working how I would like it to. Now I just have the process of writing it in code and looking up the different commands for this. I mainly just wondered if someone had done this before and had a example.
