Disable a Point-to-Point Connection

You can disable and re-enable one or both ports in a point-to-point connection.

Disabling a port might be useful for troubleshooting or if you want to force a failover to another port or provider (for example, if you are experiencing latency issues).

You are still billed for point-to-point connections with disabled ports.

Select Point to Points in the menu on the left. Click one of the table rows to view an overview of that connection and then click More details.
