Re: Integration with 3com and RF LINK

Hello Arturo,

make the RF link and the 3com - switch A links 802.1Q trunks in this way PSTP+ should able to detect the presence of switchA via the RF link.

over an 802.1Q trunk PVST+ BPDUs are tunneled over a proprietary multicast MAC address and should flow via the 3com.

increase the stp cost for all vlans on the link of switchA to 3com so that this becomes a backup link

You can do this if you can configure the 3COM device.

Hope to help

Giuseppe
