Re: Integrating with procurve with cisco

this has to do with spanning-tree "dialects"

Cisco defaults to PVST (per Vlan stp)
Procurve defaults to MST (multiple stp instance eaach for a number of vlan's).

So you need to tell the stp process that it must not take into account the spanning-tree across the edge port.

If you convert your cisco network to MST you should be able to run your tree accross cisco-pocurve.
