Dear All ,
I want to know how does switch learn/handles broadcast /unicast/MAC address when the edge device (Server/router ) is connected via inline (IPS/Packetshaper/DLP) device .
My scenario is like this
L3Switch has SVI VLAN is 100 (10.10.10.1/24)
Layer 2 VLAN connecting between L3Switch access port to IPS is VLAN 100 ,
Layer 2 Vlan 200 connecting between IPS to router (routed port) .
If my IPS/PS/DLP device fails the connectivity will be isolated , on normal senario how these devices handles the traffic does switch need any special configuration or IPS/PS/DLP hardware is built with mechanism it will not particapte on layer 2 forwarding / tagging . Need some good information .
