UDP Port Forwarding

Catalyst 4006 Sup-3 engine. What is the Command to allow specific UDP ports to be forwarded for UDP Broadcast-based 3rd party apps. across VLANS?

And on the Sup-2 anything special required?

Re: UDP Port Forwarding

Use helper addresses and "ip forward-protocol udp " if you need specific ports

Sup 2 is a layer2 only and no special configuration needed

Here is a sample from Sup3

SwitchA(config)#ip forward-protocol udp ?

<0-65535> Port number
