Src Address 255.255.255.255 Port 5678(discovery) Question

Fri Nov 03, 2006 5:12 pm

I've replaced a bunch of backhauls with MT setups and started adding MT Ap's, and have not noticed a lot more of these on the network. -

src-255.255.255.255 port-5678(discovery) dst-MT board Ip address

I thought those were DHCP clients trying to get dhcp, but I don't have DHCP clients on any of the boards.

Seems to be putting a lot of extra load on my network.

Should I block port 5678 at each MT radio?

Any input welcome!

This is generated by MT for the neighbor discovery. If you wish just disable discovery under /ip neighbors. It shouldnt be that much of a load, only 1nce per 30 seconds I think... but sometimes good to just disable it.

Thanks... Haven't wondered that far down the /ip menu!
