Re: simple RSTP configuration

There's not a lot to it really. On your switches

switch(config)# spanning-tree mode rapid-pvst

That's about it really. You don't need uplinkfast or backbonefast as these are incorporated into RSTP and the rest of the setup is the same as 802.1d.

Re: simple RSTP configuration

thanx jon it was really helpful

but I shoul enter this command under the interface not on global mode right?

because I want other ports to run "spanning-tree port fast

No this should be entered under global. Spanning-tree portfast is still used under RSTP so you can configure portfast at the interface level buit the spanning-tree mode at global level.
