We connected new VPLS L2 lines (whereas before we linked our site up with a L3 MPLS connections) for our sites to our datacentre (redundant 6500 switches).
Each site is in a separate vlan and the VPLS connections are connected on a single port as a trunk.
I've configured new VLANs and vlan interfaces with vrrp, but I see a lot af vrrp multicast traffic sent to the sites.
Is there a way to configure vrrp to only send its advertisements on a specific interface or to block vrrp on an interface?
Multicast has a tendancy to end up where you don't want it do - it does not do any harm, unless there is a device wanting to listen.
If you want to block vrrp multicast on a router the specific address is 22.214.171.124
A simple acl like:-
access-list 101 deny ip 126.96.36.199 any
access-list 101 deny ip any 188.8.131.52
access-list 101 permit ip any any
ip access-group 101 out
Should do the trick...
For a switch - much easier, just use:-
switchport block multicast
