Hi Rashmiranjan

Depends on the type of device you are connecting to that port. You should use port fast only for edge ports i.e PC, laptop, etc. If it is another switch or using some form of switching, then it is not an edge port and you should not configure port fast on it. Remember using port fast doesnt mean you dont see BPDU's. All it does is move to forwarding immeiately and device presence or absence doesnt trigger topology change (TCN)

What type of device are you plugging in?
