Hi Khan,

You can change the forward-delay time with the following commands:

For PVST+:

spanning-tree vlan x forward-time y

For MST:

spanning-tree mst forward-time y

But as far as MST uses the Rapid Spanning-Tree algorithm inside the MST region, I believe it uses the above mentioned forward-delay time when connecting to traditional 802.1D spanning-trees, like PVST+ and CST.

Does this answer your question?

Cheers:

Istvan
