Re: Span on Fast Ethernet

Spanning Tree is a protocol to prevent Network loops.. nothing else.. I'm sure if you tell everyone on the Forum exactly what you need to do, I or someone else can help you more..

Re: Span on Fast Ethernet

The question is regarding SPAN (Swithed Port ANalyzer). NOT SPT (Spanning Tree Protocol). A SPAN port is used in conjunction with a network sniffer to analyze traffic. Without one, not all traffic would cross the switched port because of the Mac-address specific switched architecture.
