Edit Unknown Flooding

Unknown flooding is for multicasted frames destined for an address for which the switch has not seen a join.
In that case the switch uses the flooding mask to forward that frame to every port.

Unknown flooding can be global enabled or disabled for all groups.
By default, unknown flooding is enabled.

  • Yes = All unknown packages will be forwarded
  • No = All unknown packages will be dropped
Hint:
To forward only known multicast network packets, enable IGMP Snooping and IGMP Querier. Disable unknown flooding.

Requirement: Connection to the web interface.

  1. Click Edit Ports / Groups.
  2. Click in the column unknown flooding at the gray box.
  3. Click Apply settings and stay where you are or Apply settings and leave edit.

Unknown flooding is enabled or disabled and saved in the startup configuration.
