How PAN deal with multicast traffic on Layer 2 mode.

L3 Networker

Hello guys.

I could not find any information of multicast processing on layer 2 mode for PAN. I wonder about that how do PAN deal with multicast traffic such as HSRP, VRRP and OSPF (that use multicast addressing) on layer 2 mode.

I believe that PAN would bypass and forward multicast traffic but I'm not sure.

Please answer me above question.

By default, a Palo Alto Networks firewall will not block multicast traffic when configured in Layer-2 Mode.
