This should give you what you need when doing 802.3ad LAGs: interface FastEthernet0/21 port group 1 spanning-tree portfast ! interface FastEthernet0/22 port group 1 spanning-tree portfast ! It might have been the lack of STP portfasting that gave you trouble initially as the Linux LACP might have timed out waiting for STP discovery to finish. Here is a good wiki article on link aggregation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Link_aggregation And here is a good site on Linux bonding interface: http://www.linux-foundation.org/en/Net:Bonding You only need to setup port groups when doing 802.3ad, if you use the other methods you may need to tune out the 2900XL for the constantly shifting MAC addresses. -Ross ______________________________________________________________________ This e-mail, and any attachments thereto, is intended only for use by the addressee(s) named herein and may contain legally privileged and/or confidential information.
