Re: Enabling spanning tree port fast.

Hi,

it will not at all affect any thing in the live enviroment, this commands enables the ports less than 3 seconds. make sure that ur not entering this command on the port which is getting uplinked to the other switch, bcoz that might form a temporary loop, so juz enable "spanning-tree portfast" only to the end host(eg. where the PC's N/w Printers are connected)

hope this helps.
