Re: edge-port or bpdu-filter command?

edge-port enabled, will put the port into forwarding immediately when the link comes up. Whereas with edge-port disabled it will go through listening learning blocking forwarding.

BPDU Filter on the other hand is completely different, it will prevent a port from participating in spanning-tree altogether. You need to be careful with using this feature - since the port will not be participating in spanning-tree it won't block any redundant or accidental loops. (You can enable loop-protect though to help guard against this).

Then what would the "no interface 1-47 lacp" command do, in comparison...

Will turning this on/off effect connected computers?

If i have ports 45-48 "trunked" using a static trunk, and i do "no interface all lacp" it will not effect my trunk, because it is set as astatic trunk correct?

Yes, that is correct, You do not need to use LaCP to configure static trunks.

You are basically telling the switch to 'always' trunk those connections and not to use any Dynamic protocol to do it for you...
