Ethernet Flow Control

Unanswered Question
Jul 21st, 2010

Hi, i have recently read on web docs that a flow control pause frame can also have a unique DA mac address and not just the Bridge Group Multicast address.  This would effectively mean that stations on the same VLAN could pause each other (contrary to my previous belief which was that it was station-switch link only).  How would a 6500 treat this?  would it pass the pause frame?  would it increment its pause counters even though it was not the dest of the pause?

I have this problem too.
