Avoid bradcast to central node in L3 routing - high amount auf broadcasts

Post by augur » Fri Jun 14, 2019 8:49 am

Hi all,

I set up a L3 routing but a high amount of broadcasts tranferred to the central Softether instance.

Most of them seems to be UPNP lookups.

I changed the user credentials to avoid this in central instance but there are still broadcasts transferred. Any ideas about this?

Branch -----> Central (Switch Port 1) - Central (Switch Port 2) -----> internal network
Broacasts are in the segement underlined.

Broadcast and multicast packets from the branch site network are sent to the central through the bridge.
To shut it off, please add another virtual hub to VPN server on branch site and add another L3 switch to it.
