OS10 Enterprise Edition User Guide Release 10.4.0E(R3)


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.
