Bug found, re port ID

Postby notanic » Sun Sep 08, 2013 5:16 am

Hi,
Thanks for your ccna_studyguide, I've found it most useful, so that is why I am helping you improve it.

I think I found a bug in this paragraph.

In this circumstance, Port ID will be used as the tiebreaker. An interface’s
Port ID consists of two parts - a 6-bit port priority value, and the MAC
address for that port. Whichever interface has the lowest Port ID will
become the Root Port.

I think 'MAC address' should be 'port interface number'.

I got this idea from here:

And here (at bottom):

Thanks
