Information About Peer-to-Peer Client Support
Peer-to-peer client support can be applied to individual WLANs, with each client inheriting the peer-to-peer blocking setting of the WLAN to which it is associated. The peer-to-Peer Client Support feature provides a granular control over how traffic is directed. For example, you can choose to have traffic bridged locally within a device, dropped by a device, or forwarded to the upstream VLAN.
Peer-to-peer blocking is supported for clients that are associated with local and central switching WLANs.
Peer-to-peer blocking does not apply to multicast traffic.
Peer-to-peer blocking is not enabled by default.
In FlexConnect, peer-to-peer blocking configuration cannot be applied only to a particular FlexConnect AP or a subset of APs. It is applied to all the FlexConnect APs that broadcast the SSID.
FlexConnect central switching clients supports peer-to-peer upstream-forward. However, this is not supported in the FlexConnect local switching. This is treated as peer-to-peer drop and client packets are dropped.
FlexConnect central switching clients supports peer-to-peer blocking for clients associated with different APs. However, for FlexConnect local switching, this solution targets only clients connected to the same AP. FlexConnect ACLs can be used as a workaround for this limitation.
