Macintosh connected to IP phones, any known issues w/ portfast?

Are there any known issues when connecting Macintoshes to the PC port on Cisco IP Phones? When the Macs were connected directly to the Catalyst switch, I had to implement Portfast to allow them to boot properly. How does the IP phone handle this?

Thanks, Randy

Re: Macintosh connected to IP phones, any known issues w/ portfa

I have seen MACs (Apple Talk) have problems if you have Forwarding Delay set to YES on the phone. You want it set to NO.
