Switch 500 series - Smart ports

Unanswered Question
Aug 8th, 2007

Hi all,

I am configuring a cisco switch 500 series and all access ports will be set as cisco-desktop smart port.

This switch will be connected to a 3com switch via uplink, vlan1. Which smart port should I use? Can I also use cisco-desktop?

I have this problem too.

Hi Muca,

Desktop should work fine since we have all access ports.

Someone else told me:

You'll want to use the switch role on this port. Cisco-desktop role enables portfast and BPDUguard. If the 3com switch talks spanning-tree, this port will shut down upon connecting to the Cisco.
