The aironets in my lan are running on 12.01T because of dot1q.
i saw on the interface statistics in 3 days round about 700MB of traffic without any client connectet. so i did a further look and sniffer. its traffic destined to 01-04-96-ff-ff-ff-00. when i take a look in the config file i saw the dest. ip is 126.96.36.199:2887. so i like to know what is it for and a way to stop this unecessary traffic/load on the devices ???
of course u are right and the 00-04-96 is a extreme mac but my one is
01-04-96 a layer 2 multicast as cdp or bpdu just another destination. i find out that the bridge have some features like update the other bridges in the lan with a new image or communicate the config out in the world. that insn't funny and useless overhead.
u are also right with pim but my one is just a stupid ly 2 brigde :-) and def. know nothing about "ip multicast boundary". there is no cli just a web side with click-and-try or a eye-burning console interface where u can use shortcuts. no conf t etc. ..
so i think cisco used the 188.8.131.52 for their features and i like to get rid of it. i also take a further look for features like igmp snooping but find nothing yet.
