Question:  How do I block IPX and AppleTalk traffic from the network?

 

Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers and ArubaOS 3.x and later.


To block any type of IP traffic, use the built-in Aruba firewall.

To block non-IP traffic, use an ethertype ACL. For example, the ethertype for AppleTalk is 0x809B, and the ethertype for IPX is 0x8137.

To block AppleTalk and IPX in a user role, issue the following commands:
(Aruba651) (config) #ip access-list eth block-apple-ipx
(Aruba651) (config-eth-block-apple-ipx)#deny 0x809B
(Aruba651) (config-eth-block-apple-ipx)#deny 0x8137
(Aruba651) (config-eth-block-apple-ipx)#
(Aruba651) (config-eth-block-apple-ipx)#exit
Apply this firewall policy high up in a user role and all of the AppleTalk and IPX traffic is blocked from your network.
