Can I configure the switch to allow specific packets with FCS errors to pass through

    We are using a Summit X460-48t Network Switch between a Linux box and some custom HW. For testing purposes I would like to send some packets with a known, corrupted FCS and see the response on the custom HW. Is there a way to configure the switch to allow some specific packets to pass through with FCS errors? For instance, if they are addressed to a specific MAC or IP address?? In this case, the packets will all be ICMP or SNMP messages.

    Hi Todd,By definition, these "damaged" frames are to be discarded and won't be forwarded at all. I don't believe there is a way to permit them, unless cut-through switching will allow it.
