Re: How to filter unnecessary Broadcast Messages? (like VRRP, STP)

mhm OK so i can't filter these vrrp packets :-(

Also at the moment a customer server send out multicasttraffic and floods all other port - as we read out the paketcounters all other customers have to pay for the flood one customer created. So i wanted to stop the mcast traffic.

Re: How to filter unnecessary Broadcast Messages? (like VRRP, STP)

in that case you may consider going even further than my last suggestion.

create a vlan/subnet for each customer.
let the network (eg the 2650) do basic routing between these subnets.
Don't configure multicast routing!
Multicasts will stay contained within a single customers vlan.

OK so there is no way around it? My idea was to simply block multicast traffic as it is not needed and is it easier to do this than creating VLANS for each customer
