How PAN deal with multicast traffic on Layer 2 mode.

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.

Thanks

Regards,

Roh

Hi

Does following article answer to your question?

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