My thoughts are in a way to findout how to prevent a broadcast storm on a network. You know, when a user plugs in two ports of an IP phone in the same switch that has only one VLAN or a Laptop and docking station that are both connected to the network.
Solved! Go to Solution.

1. enable Spanning-Tree, therfore looped back STP packets should block the port
2. enable the feature "loop-protect" on en-user ports
3. configure the feature broadcast-limit which is acting on egress traffic
4. configure the feature rate-limit for broadcast traffic which is acting on ingress-traffic (but this is only available on 3500, 6200, 6600, 5400, 8200 switch series)
