Cisco Portfast command
Posted on 2010-11-11
In cisco switches there is the Portfast feature, that blocks STP on a certain port so that the computer connects to the network faster.
I wonder if this feature is mandatory and has to be used on all switches where computers are connect to?
In cisco doc, it says it is used when a single host is connected to the port, which means if it's an access switch,and all ports have to be configured with fastport, since all ports will have computers connected to.
what about the Trunk ports do they have to have the portfast configured?
