Re: how to configure spanning tree in a ring topology

I worked for an ISP once and we did the same. What kind of switches do you have?

Re: how to configure spanning tree in a ring topology

we had a 6513 as the root bridge and about 10 3750 metros in a ring. I would suggest MSTP and configure your most centralized switch as the spanning-tree root bridge.
