Broacast ARP & Bridge VAP

All,

 

What is the interoperability of Broadcast filter ARP & Bridge VAP.  Do both play nicely together?

That is a very strange question.  Why would you ask that?

Broadcast filter arp is done by the controller, so it won't work with bridged ssids.

Re: Broacast ARP & Bridge VAP

I should have been a bit more clear.  Documentation states that Drop Broadcast & Multicast should not be enabled in Bridge-mode VAPs, and requires Broadcast ARP request enabled to function.

 

What I was meant to ask is whether I should be enabling Drop Broadcast & Multicast on bridge VAPs or leave it off as the documentation says.


Sorry for the confusion.

Re: Broacast ARP & Bridge VAP

You can have 'broadcast filter arp' enabled without 'broadcast filter all'. 

 

However, if you enable 'broadcast filter all', you must enable 'broadcast filter arp' as per the warning that shows when you configure it.

 

you should not enable either if the vap is in bridge mode.
