Verifying Spanning-Tree Port States on Catalyst Switches
The objective of this lab exercise is to verify the different Spanning Tree port states, i.e. Listening, Learning, etc, and understand the IOS commands that can be used to determine the state of a port at any given time.
Understanding the different Spanning-Tree protocol port states is a fundamental skill. In Spanning-Tree operation, ports transition from a Blocked state -> Listening state -> Learning state -> Forwarding state. A switched network is said to be converged when all ports are in the Forwarding . . .
