Most of the relevant edits to the switch confgiuration itself are made on the main STP Config page. You can select whether it's enabled or not, the version (we use `STP`), and some other parameters.

## Saving Switch Config
To save the config, click on the "Save Config" option on the left menu. When you click, it will ask you if you're sure and save the config. This will take at least a few minutes.

This step is important, since **if the switch reboots, it will reset to this saved config**, rather than any config you have without saving. This is important, because if you lock yourself out of the switch, it resets when you reboot it, so that you don't need to get to the console and reset the switch entirely and loose ALL of the configuration.

This documents will go into the basics of networking. This is in no way a comprehensive guide to how the network works. For that, I suggest taking CS455, Computer Networks. I highly suggest taking it with Jeanna Matthews, she teaches it very hands-on with tools like Wireshark.

STP is the Spanning Tree Protocol. STP handles redundant paths with the tree, and also knows about the topography of the network at any point in time. It also is used to disable ports that are connected to themselves, even across switches.
This prevents switching loops from occurring. Very useful when your users make mistakes, so that the entire network doesn't go down.

We use the original version of STP, versus RSTP and MSTP, for all devices.
