OS10 Enterprise Edition User Guide Release


EdgePort forward traffic

EdgePort allows the interface to forward traffic approximately 30 seconds sooner as it skips the Blocking and Learning states. The spanning-tree bpduguard enable command causes the interface hardware to shut down when it receives a BPDU.

  • CAUTION: Configure EdgePort only on links connecting to an end station. EdgePort can cause loops if you enable it on an interface connected to a network.
  • Enable EdgePort on an interface in INTERFACE mode.
