Hello there,


So I have five 3750 switches in a stack. Show version, show switch, show switch stack-ports all show that they work properly. However when I do show spanning-tree then it has a port named "St5". On some vlans it's FWR and others BLK... Does anybody know what it's? Thanks!!

This is the stack port, which is used to sync STP information between members of the stack. The state is irrelevant here (don't worry about the BLK state). It should be hidden from the user. You can only see it because you have "debug spanning-tree event" enabled.
