Syntax Description

flood Specifies to forward all (mDNS, LLMNR, and UPnP) to VLAN. (Default).
learn Specifies to send all (mDNS, LLMNR, and UPnP) to the CPU for learning.



Usage Guidelines

Use this command to enable mDNS, LLMNR, and UPnP for flood or learn state.

When flood to VLAN is enabled, an ACL filter is installed, and one ACL entry is consumed for each of the three protocols.

When in learn mode, no ACL filters are installed, and no ACL resources are consumed.

Use the llmnr, mdns, and upnp keywords to specify separate protocols.


The following command enables all three protocols to flood to VLAN:
