Catalyst 4000 MAC Address Forwarding

Can anyone tell me what a Catalyst 4006 Switch with a Supervisor 3 Module will do with a request from a device to an unknown MAC Address? Will it forward it to all ports or will it be binned?

Thanks.

Re: Catalyst 4000 MAC Address Forwarding

Unknown Macs (&BCAST destinations) will be flooded out all ports except the one it entered (within it's VLAN). This is a function of all switches during the learning process and CAM table population.

Hope this helps,

Don
