Summary0001848: Change docs to recommend using "spanning-tree portfast" or similar technology
DescriptionI set up my first Packetfence install on a lab switch following the Packetfence documentation: [^]

"On each interface:

switchport mode access
authentication order mab
authentication port-control auto
dot1x pae authenticator"

I was using mac address bypass only, and my MacBook would give up on DHCP and self-assign 169.254.x.x address. In order to prevent this, we need to add one more command to each interface:

"spanning-tree portfast"

I recommend adding this to all your port configs, including the corresponding command for other switch vendors.
