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.


The following example disables SLPP Guard on port 5:

# disable slpp guard ports 5
