Re: IP flooding by using broadcast address
before my mailbox gets spammed by all of y'all, I'd like to publicly apologize for my "cisco bashing." cisco makes a fine product that I recommend in most situations. I'd still like to know that cisco listens to little guys like me, tho. Also, I need to point out that my recommendations of filtering the broadcast address are targeted towards leaf networks, rather than transit networks.
