configure slpp guard ethertype hex


Configures the Ethertype that the Simple Loop Protection Protocol (SLPP) Guard feature uses to identify SLPP PDUs.

Syntax Description

slpp Specifies configuring SLPP.
guard Specifies disabling a port as soon as an SLPP PDU is received.
ethertype Specifies selecting the Ethertype used by PDUs of the SLPP protocol.
hex Specifies the Ethertype value in hexadecimal [0x0600-0xffff]. The default is 0x8102.


By default, the Ehtertype is 0x8102.

Usage Guidelines

SLPP is an application that detects loops in a Split Multi-link Trunking (SMLT) network. SLPP Guard is a complementary feature that helps prevent loops in networks by administratively disabling an edge port if a switch receive an SLPP PDU from an SMLT network.

This command configures the Ethernet type field of the packet that SLPP Guard uses to identify SLPP PDUs.


The following example configures the SLPP Guard Ethertype as 0x8110:

# configure slpp guard ethertype 0x8110


This command was available in ExtremeXOS 30.2.
