Hi Experts,

I have issue always identifying the root ports and the designated ports on the switchs. My issue is that I can not understand which mac address is lower then the other. What should I compare. Is there any logical explanation that someone can give me.

I have 4 swtiches and the question is to identify the port roles for 3 switches.

identify the RSTP ports.
