How to stop broadcast traffic on certain port on 3560G ?

Hi mates :)

On the 3560G with enhanced image;

I dont want broadcast traffic to pass on one of the PC's within the network. The PC must be in the same network, It needs to transmit/recieve all the traffic but broadcast traffic.

I know I can seperate broadcast domains with VLANs but looking for other alternatives.

what would you advice me as a solution?

I'll appreciate all answers,

Tx for helping :)

Hi,

There's no way to block egress broadcast on a switchport. I'm not sure what kind of host is connected, but if you did block all broadcast traffic to and from a device, it would not be able to send ARP requests, or respond to them, and would cause connectivity problems.

Here's a doc that details what is available as far as port based traffic control:

HTH,

thanks Bob.

as far as I understand, we can control broadcast traffic with configuring broadcast storm option on the ports. This way we wouldnt prevent arp request while we stop unwanted broadcast traffic.

tx pal.
