Observer Matrix : Matrix CLI : Matrix CLI : modify port type
   
modify port type
The modify port type command modifies the port type in the currently loaded layout.
There are two types of ports: network and tool.
The appliance ports can change modes of operation.
 
Network Port Ingress port that accepts network traffic
Tool Port Egress port that forwards network traffic to tools and analyzers
 
You cannot modify the port type if the port actively has traffic passing through it.
The currently loaded layout is shown at the prompt in parentheses, such as matrix_host(layout_name)#. You can also use show layout .
