Drop an offending MAC

Jump to solution

If I wanted to drop an offending MAC address, would I simply arp 1.1.1.1.AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF arpa or is their a better way to dispose of layer 2 handling?

The AOS Feature Matrix - Product Feature Matrix explains the features that are supported in each platform.  The Second Generation NV1234 does support Hardware ACLs (Configuring Hardware ACLs in AOS).

Please, let me know what additional questions you have.

Herb:

Thank you for asking this question in the support community forum.  Typically, MAC address filtering is performed on a Layer 2 device such as a switch.  For example, in AOS, most switches support Hardware ACLs (Configuring Hardware ACLs in AOS).  The arp <ip address> <mac address> arpa command you referenced is used to enter static entries into the ARP table.  It is possible to be manipulated where the "offending" MAC address is mapped to an arbitrary IP address, but this is not recommended.  It it best practice to deal with the specific MAC address at the Layer 2 switch.

Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Levi, thank you for the response. I do realize I am talking layer 2 regarding MAC address.

Here is what I have.

I am a small ISP with 2 upstream providers with 2 Netvanta 4430. I use a NetVanta 1234 switch with VLAN trunking.

Can I use the Netvanta 1234 switch to address the offending MAC issue?
