TitleIs there a "spanning-tree portfast" equivalent command on VOSS
Question
  • Is there a "spanning-tree portfast" equivalent command on VOSS
Environment
  • VOSS
  • All versions
Answer
  • It depends on the type of spanning tree being used
  • Edge port is a new parameter that is supported by RSTP/MSTP.
  • When a port is connected to a non-switch device such as a PC or a workstation, it must be configured as an Edge port or else it will take 30 seconds to transition into a Forwarding state.
  • An active Edge port is similar to the STP FastStart feature in that the port can go directly into Forwarding state without any delay.
  • An Edge port always generates BPDUs but immediately becomes a non Edge port if it receives a BPDU.
