This is the third question in a series of OEQs. The first and second questions were pretty popular, so I’ve decided to add more than one a week for a month or so. The answer to the second question has been added to the post.

Third question:

What are the port states of 802.1w?

Please post answers in the comments (without Googling)!


The port states of 802.1w (RSTP) are Discaring, Learning and Forwarding.
