Re: Directed Broadcast

Fabrice,

mls ip directed-broadcast command is used to enable hardware switching of IP-directed broadcasts. This is an interface mode command so you have to use it on the Layer-3 interface or on vlan SVI interface.

Re: Directed Broadcast

I need to send Magic packet to clients and they are in different vlan. The server is in vlan5 and all clients are in vlan8, vlan9 and vlan10. Where I need to apply the command, on the server sending interface or on the client’s interfaces.

Re: Directed Broadcast

On all of the interfaces. When we enable MLS we enable it globally and also on each and every interface.

regards,
