Quick question regarding: Problematic IPv6 Multicast traffic within an IX.



Is it true that managed Layer2 switches used by IX's can not block IPv6
multicast ingress port traffic from broadcasting to all ports ?

___Yes , seen many IXs with IPv6 multicast continuing yet IPv4 multicast
is blocked.

___No , All should be able to bock IPv6 multicast.

___Only a few specific managed switch manufacturers have this issue with
IPv6 multicast broadcasting.

You're knowledge on this problem would be helpful.

Thank You in advance.
