stop broadcasts on edge access switches to a port

I have a telco person wanting to put the management port of their phone switch on to the network in one of our remote offices. They say that it will not handle broadcast very well and it will cause it to reset.

So is there a way to limit the broadcast traffic to the port the phoneswitch is connected to. Or is there another way to accomplish this.

using switches like edge access switches 3500XL, 2900XL, 3550 etc and or small routers like 1700 series.

Thanks.

this is a per-interface configuration.

See the storm-control command reference. A 2.0 threashold will allow 2% of total bandwidth as broadcasts.

Thanks for the info. I'm assuming that storm-control is a global setting, is there a way to set something up for just one port?
