port fast on interface

hi every body !

I know using max age timer, switch finds out the indirect link failure. So on port

which is connected to host,host cant send bpdu as it is not switch, so how would switch determines the indirect failure, assuming port fast is not enabled

thanks alot and have a wonderful day !

Re: port fast on interface

Hi!

Since the lin is connected to a host, there is no chance of having a "indirect-link-failure" on that port. Since the link doesnot recieve any BPDUs, the only way to cause any change in spanning tree is if the link itself goes down.
