Re: PVST problem

Hi,

This is because the switches with recent IOS versions are using PVST+ instead of PVST. Per VLAN Spanning Tree Plus (PVST+) provides the same functionality as PVST using 802.1Q trunking technology rather than ISL. PVST+ is an enhancement to the 802.1Q specification and is not supported on non-Cisco devices.
