    vlanbridgestp cli command

    hopcio

      Hi,

       

      Can some one give more details regarding this specific cli command and in what type of scenarios is a good idea to use it?

      how is it configured by default?

          This command is used for sensor in a FO configuration, if you want the FO sensor to be aware of vlan bridging.   If you have configured VLAN bridging via the Manager, using the vlanbridgstp command allows this configuration to be passed to FO sensor (enable), dropped by FO sensor (drop) or disabled passing to FO sensor all together.

            Hi, just for curiosity what does the stp at the end of the command stands for ? Thought it was something related to Spanning Tree Protocol ...

            Also, do you know the default state? enable?

              Yes, it is realted to Spanning Tree Protocol.   Let me clarify the command.

               

              The basic function of STP is to prevent vlan bridge loops. Sometimes customer allows broadcast across vlans to bridge them together.

               

              With this feature, if sensor is a Fail-Over pair, then this command prevents the STP messages from broadcasting across the failover pair. 

               

              Info about the options below, where STP stands for Spanning Tree, and default setting is "DISABLE"

               

              ------------

              vlanbridgestp

              Configures the vlan bridging on the STP packet.

               

              Syntax:

              vlanbridgestp <enable | disable| drop>

               

              Parameter Description

              <enable>  - enables the vlan bridging on the STP packet

              <disable> - disables the vlan bridging on the STP packet

              <drop>  - drops the vlan bridging on the STP packet
