Hi everybody, I am currently a student and learning about Cisco and routing, etc. The teacher I currently have is the type that throws you in the environment and makes you figure out everything yourself. I am having a hard time because this is the intermediate class, and honestly I shouldn't be in it yet. My beginner class was kind of a joke and way too easy and now this is all too much lol
Anyway, I was wondering if I can get some answers to these questions, and why? I know I could use google and find answers, but google doesn't tell me why that's the answer. I want to learn. I could read the book I have but it's just gonna be something generic I've heard a thousand times.
1. Describe the Spanning Tree Protocol. Explain the election process and different port states.
2. Provide some example commands to troubleshoot Spanning Tree issues.
3. Provide some example commands on how to tune OSPF to converge faster.
4. Describe VLAN trunking Protocol. Provide an example configuration.
So those are the questions. I've noticed in our Packet Tracer labs that we do that I use "Spanning-tree portfast" a lot...yet I have no clue what it does.
Any help would be appreciated..thanks
