    RSTP Link types


      Hi all,




      interface fa0/1


      switchport mode access



      spanning-tree link-type point-to-point ?What purpose does this command serve?



      spanning-tree portfast


      I understand the Portfast command is to "only" be used on edge ports and therefore P2p links. I also understand that a P2p link is determined by the Duplex setting on the port which can be set manually or auto detected. In other words port is already in P2p mode because of Duplex setting and can therefore do Portfast; so why would I need the command in question?
