I use FabOS 6.1.0h and with the portcfgspeed command there is a new option called "ax", which indicated auto negotiation with enhanced retries.
Nevertheless, I found no details about within the manuals.
Does anyone know exctly the difference between auto-negotiation (0) and the ax option?
Many thanks in advance for any help.

the option "ax" is a mixed as option "0" and "fixed speed" but check and set the Speed automatically as fixed when the correct speed was be found from the "portcfgspeed" command.
example: You have a capable Licensed 8 GB Brocade's 5100 with mixed SFP 4GB and 8GB.
The "ax" option check the Port's speed forward and backwards "+ retries", and configure maximum speed available.
