Activates the public network port

NEW! Behavior on January 4th, 2019

Activate a server’s public network interface to the maximum available speed. This operation is an alias for [[SoftLayer_Hardware_Server/setPublicNetworkInterfaceSpeed]] with a $newSpeed of -1 and a $redundancy of “redundant”.

Receipt of a response does not indicate completion of the configuration change. Any subsequent attempts to request the interface change speed or state, while changes are pending, will result in a busy error.

A response of true indicates a change was required to activate the interface; thus changes are pending. A response of false indicates the interface was already active, and thus no changes are pending.
