loop-gard like feature

Hi
is there a loop-gard like feauture for hp procurve 2626 or 2824?

here is cisco definition of loop-gard:
"The STP loop guard feature provides additional protection against Layer 2 forwarding loops (STP loops). An STP loop is created when an STP blocking port in a redundant topology erroneously transitions to the forwarding state. This usually happens because one of the ports of a physically redundant topology (not necessarily the STP blocking port) no longer receives STP BPDUs. In its operation, STP relies on continuous reception or transmission of BPDUs based on the port role. The designated port transmits BPDUs, and the non-designated port receives BPDUs. "

Hi,

indeed: it is the loop-protect feature.

Re: loop-gard like feature

Hi

Thanks, but for the description i think it is not the same fonction.

On cisco switch i can configure loop-gard in an uplink port .I think that the command loop-protect is only applied to edge-ports. I am looking for a command to apply to ports that are in the root(state forwarding) or alternate (state blocking) role. I means they are part of an STP structure.

Thanks
