Hi,

I like to know how can I configure unidirectional single-fiber communication. I saw this is possible on Huawei https://support.huawei.com/enterprise/en/doc/EDOC1000166637/6b2f1937/configuring-unidirectional-single-fiber-communication

Thanks,
Bernard

Starting 4.15.2F, this feature provides a capability to use a 100G link as a unidirectional link. There are 3 unidirectional link modes: send-only, receive-only, and send-receive.

In send-only mode, the interface can only send packets but cannot receive any packet.
In receive-only mode, the interface can only receive packets but cannot send any packet.
In send-receive mode, the interface can both send and receive packets. However, the interface sends packets to one partner interface but receives packets from a completely different partner interface.

For more information please refer to:
