Hi Community

I am currently using VXLAN tunnels for "Data Center interconnection".
By default Proxy ARP is enbaled to limit the broadcasts across the tunnel.

The question I have relates to Multicast traffic inside the Tunnel.
How does the VXLAN Tunnel handle normal multicast traffic, does it flood it to all VTEP's?

Thx

Andre,

Yes the multicast traffic is flooded in VXLAN tunnels.
