SITUATION: I have two switches SW1 and SW2. These two switches are connected with two trunk ports. While SW1 is connected to PC1, SW2 is connected to PC2.
If PC1 sends a broadcast frame to PC2 via SW1. SW1 transmits the frame to SW2. However, recall i have two connecting trunk ports. So when the frame from SW1 gets to SW2 through one of the trunking ports. The frame is flooded out of all of SW2 ports except that it was received on. Hence, the frame loops back to SW1 and this cycle continues causing Broadcast storm.
QUESTION: ASIDE STP, HOW CAN I AVERT LOOP ON THIS TOPOLOGY.
