When a switch is selected as root bridge why are all ports on that switch in forward mode? I know switches that are connected to each other by two ports have one blocked port and one forward so theres only one why for frames to go so no loops are made.
Because for most end users with a single switch, they want all to forward I would say. If you are at the point where you need to interconnect switches by multiple ports, you know what STP is for and why you should use it.
As per my understand you would like to know about 'why root bridges ports are in forwarding mode?"
My Answer: Root bridge is the master in spanning tree topology. So all decisions like timer changes and port states will be decided here. And any changes happened to the timers or topology changes must be communicated to all nodes which are participating in STP. And nodes will apply changes only if the communication is from root. So root switch's ports will be in forwarding state.
Hope this solves your doubt. Still if you have any thing to ask please update the question.
Hi again. I would like to ask, i my sriCam sp011 Ipcamera, the Ip address is already given as well the port. So i tried to make a port forward it in my router with the same Ip address and port. I also turn off the firewall, and even make ...
I have a scenario as such. 1 router connected behind a proxy used to connect PC with LAN devices. Proxy provides limited access to websites on the net. There is a 2nd router, Wifi only, which is not connected to any proxy, thus allowing open connection to the web. ...
