Configuring traffic/security filters

Use this procedure to specify the type of filters to use on the switch and whether to forward or drop filtered packets for each filter you specify.

  1. Select the static filter type(s).
  2. For inbound traffic matching the filter type, determine the filter action you want for each outbound (destination) port on the switch (forward or drop). The default action for a new filter is to forward traffic of the specified type to all outbound ports.
  3. Configure the filter.
  4. Use show filter to check the filter listing to verify that you have configured correct action for the desired outbound ports.
