Cisco Port Blocking

The default behavior of a switch is to broadcast all traffic for which the destination MAC address is unknown.

However in certain circumstances, you wouldn’t want a port to receive unknown unicast or multicast packet floods.

This can be accomplished by turning on port blocking on the switch interface.
