looking for CLI command to enable flow control on Foundry edgeiron 8x10g switch running 2.2.6.23

Can't figure out how to enable Flow Control using the CLI and it does not show up on the web interface.  In fact the web interfaces options are mostly greyed out even though I am logged in using Admin.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: looking for CLI command to enable flow control on Foundry edgeiron 8x10g switch running 2.2.6.23

Firstly, I have not used this switch, however the datesheet does say support for 802.3 flow control is supported.  I found an old Edgeiron user guide and it looks like both the WEB interface supports enabling flow controll (in the interface section put a tick on FC) and in the CLI via the below

 

Console(config)#interface ethernet 1/5
Console(config-if)#capabilities flowcontrol

 

Note for anybody reading this a normal FASTIRON not EdgeIron would use

ICXSwitch(config)#int e 1/1/17

ICXSwitch(config-if-e1000-1/1/17)#flow-control 

or 

ICXSwitch(config-if-e1000-1/1/17)#no flow-control 

 

Thanks
