    STP vs RSTP

    Krishna

      Hi Techies,


      Can you guys please tell me differences between STP and RSTP.


      Why RSTP is better than STP( Why is it rapid) ?


      What makes discarding state better than blocking,disabled and listening in STP?


      What is the use of Backup and alernates ports?


      If any of you have a document to learn RSTP, please share it.


      Regards,
