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.

To disable a port, go to the Network > Point-to-Point page in the portal. Select the connection and then click More Details.
