Port Speeds of Virtual Wire Interfaces

Different firewall models provide various numbers of copper and fiber optic ports, which operate at different speeds. A virtual wire can bind two Ethernet ports of the same type (both copper or both fiber optic), or bind a copper port with a fiber optic port. By default, the
Link Speed
of copper ports on the firewall is set to
auto
, which means the firewall automatically negotiates their speed and transmission mode (
Link Duplex
). When you Configure a Virtual Wire, you can also select a specific
Link Speed
and
Link Duplex
but the values for these settings must be the same for both ports in any single virtual wire.
