Spanning-Tree Question

We have a ProCurve 6600-24XG switch that is not connected to any other switches. Spanning-Tree is disabled.


We are having a timeout problem with an application.


The question is, when Spanning-Tree is disabled, do the ports on the switch go through the blocking-listening-learning-forwarding stages when they are activated? Do they just go to forwarding instead?


Thank you
