Anyone have experience with multicast filtering features as
IP IGMP Filter or IP IGMP Max-groups features in a layer-2 switching environment or
in a layer-3 environment IP IGMP ACL or IP IGMP Limit features on a router?
Is it better to filter on ingress user ports on a layer-2 switch or utilize layer-3 filtering techniques on the router or BOTH?
Is some other method better?
Our switches are 2960, 3750 and 4500 series.
What we're doing - I'm starting to roll out multicast (PIM Sparse-mode only, for now) across the MPLS WAN (~300 sites) using redundant auto-RPs via Anycast and group dissemination between mapping agents via MSDP. Multicast groups will consist of a /28 group range (126.96.36.199/28) so our multicast setup will be considered small. Each LAN environment is configured to use IGMPv3 on VLC clients. Since this may well end up being a 1 man show, I would like to take as many up front precautions as I can - perhaps ease up on the restrictions later on.
So far I have noticed many local devices continue to solicit for their group addresses I.E. HP at 188.8.131.52, MS SSDP at 184.108.40.206, Novell SLP at 220.127.116.11 etc. etc. etc. I don't want surprises to complicate this implementation. I cannot force the support staff to correct these issues so I have to work around 'em - with filtering I guess!!!
Starting from NFVIS 3.12 versions, the deploy option does not depict all the SR-IOV VFs(Virtual Functions) available in a physical interface. This change is introduced as (i) the number of VFs of ENCS platform on LANs side is increased to 24 and (ii) the...

Hi alli have 40 spots (40 Ethernet cables for computers coming out from switch) and i want each of these spots to have fix IP which means if i swap the computer the IP of certain spot remain the same.example : at spot 30 i have IP address of 192.168.22.40...
