Setting STP Port States

I would like to know if there is a way to set the port state to any of the available states.

Say I want to force a port to be in the Listening mode all the time.

Thanks

Re: Setting STP Port States

Hi Friend,

Thats not possile port can either stay in blocking state or fwding state you cannot hold it on listening or learning state as these 2 stages are transition stages for any port.

Yes if any port is malfunctioning it may keep looping in these stages but you will not have a control to make the port stuck into listening or learning stage.Though you can control blocking and fwding stages playing with STP values.

HTH, if yes please rate the post.
