How do I find open ports?

I have a couple of Silkworm switches that are full of F/C connections but I suspect that several of the ports are not in use. What's the best way to find out which ports are not in use on the switch?

Well I telnetted into the switch and ran a portshow 6 (worked my way up from 0) and it shows:I just want to make sure I'm going to pull the proper fibre connection. I'm a bit of a rookie with this so help is appreciated.

switchShow will give you quite a bit of info as to what is plugged into each port on the switch
