Does the "Storm Control" feature help in blocking sudden attacks from a specific port?
One person in one classroom in one building coming back to a switch (2948 or 2900XL) is flooding the network with zillion bits per second. He has a virus and doesnt know he is sending that many packets per second and bringing down the entire network. Can I block this traffic with the Storm Control feature at the port level (or even the uplink) so it block the port until it reaches a normal threshold again? These are not broadcasts, but unicast packets. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks you.
