vpn interface autonegotiate—Configure whether an interface runs in autonegotiation mode (on vEdge routers only).

On all vEdge router models, all interfaces support 1-Gigabit Ethernet SFPs. These SFPs can either be copper or fiber. For fiber SFPs, the supported speeds are 1 Gbps full duplex and 100 Mbps full duplex. For copper SFPs, the supported speeds are 10/100/1000 Mbps and half/full duplex. To use a fixed speed and duplex configuration for interfaces that do not support autonegotiation, you must disable autonegotiation and then use the speed and duplex commands to set the appropriate interface link characteristics.

Integrated routing and bridging (IRB) interfaces do not support autonegotiation. In Releases 17.1 and later, the autonegotiate command is not available for these interfaces.
