This configuration is reminiscent of my back lawn. It probably grew
organically, has been neglected for a period of time, and it's going
to require a bit of effort to tame it and bring it under control.

You probably don't have the option of blocking horizontal layer 2
traffic like the WISP guys do, and even if you were able to get away

RE: IPV6 Multicast Listener storm control? Naslund, Steve (Sep 23)
We have seen the same issue with Lenovo devices. They all seem to have a variety of Intel chipsets. We have not found
a good solution other than updating drivers and/or shutting down ipv6 which we really don’t want to do but it is easier
to automate that than to automate the driver update. I will be interested in seeing what anyone else has come up with
to kill these off. In our case, the biggest issue is wireless clients that show this...

If the packets are sent to ff02::1, then this will be sent to all ports
even with MLD snooping turned on.


"In IPv6, the data forwarding rules are more straight forward because
MLD is mandated for addresses with scope 2 (link-scope) or greater.
The only exception is the address FF02::1 which is the all hosts

low volume (1-2mbit), but that are causing service disruptions due to CPU
load on the switches and that the network is a Point to MultiPoint wireless

That's the kind of waving I like to see.

Whew! I was afraid I was the one who thought so anymore.

Ha! I'd say that's an upgrade for the BCN! ;-)

I still have nightmares about Site Mangler, and conflicting versions
between it and the BCN/BLNs.....

Twitter appears inop Jay Ashworth (Sep 22)
I'm getting various 403 messages on tweets about "looks automated", from
Tweetcaster and the Web UI, both over Sprint LTE from Tampa; anyone else
seeing this?

Retrieval seems ok; the web UI loads fine too. Appears internal.

I would notify them, but Twitter is down.

They make great fish tanks in their second lives, although uptime stats are more "general recollection" for me now.
