Please help me w/ this multiple choice question:
What is the effect of this confi command?
spanning-tree portfast bpdufilter default

A. If BPDUs are received by a port configured for PortFast, they are ignored and none is sent.
B. The command will enable BPDU filtering on all ports regardless of whether they are configured for BPDU filtering at interface level
C. If BPDUs are received by port configured for portfast, the port will transition to forwarding state
D. If BPDUs are received by port configured for portfast, then portfast is desabled and BPDUs are processed normally.
E. None of alternatives apply.

The global BPDU filter command disables the transmission of BPDUs on all ports which have portfast configured. None of the available commands meet that criteria. So E is correct.

How do you know if your security is working?

Protecting your business doesn’t have to mean sifting through endless alerts and notifications. With WatchGuard Total Security Suite, you can feel confident that your business is secure, meaning you can get back to the things that have been sitting on your to-do list.

Just reread the answers and you're right. D is correct. I was approaching the question from a different direction.

Why D is correct ?

Can you explain please as I found in Cisco document that BPDU filer put the port on disable state if BPDU is received!!!!!

Thanks

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
Portfast makes the port skip the initial listening/learning process. Adding BPDU filter causes it to not send BPDUs.

If a BPDU is received on a port then the portfast/BPDU filter behavior is suspended but the port is still operational.

I think you're referring to BPDU guard. That will disable a port if a BPDU is received.

you're right I understood wrong this topic, in fact If BPDUs are seen, the port looses its PortFast status, BPDU filtering is disabled, and STP resumes default operation on the port,

I thought that was the port who is disabled..... :) but I was wrong :)
