Usage Guidelines

Use this command to configure a VMAN to use a specific protocol filter.

Protocol Filters

These devices do not forward packets with a protocol-based VLAN set to AppleTalk. To ensure that AppleTalk packets are forwarded on the device, create a protocol-based VLAN set to “any” and define other protocol-based VLANs for other traffic, such as IP traffic. The AppleTalk packets pass on the “any” VLAN, and the other protocols pass traffic on their specific protocol-based VLANs.


The following example configures the protocol filter “my_filter” to vlan v1:

configure vlan v1 protocol my_filter
configure vlan v1 protocol  filter  my_filter
