Layer 2 MAC header. IGMP snooping can help reduce cluttered traffic on the LAN. With IGMP snooping enabled globally, the Web-Smart Switch will forward multicast traffic only to connections that have group members attached.
Max Response Time (10-25 sec): The Max Response Time specifies the maximum allowed time before sending a responding report. Adjusting this setting effects the "leave latency", or the time between the moment the last host leaves a group and when the routing protocol is notified that there are no more members.
'RouterPortPurgeInterval' time, the learnt router port entry will be purged. Default is 125 seconds. Leave Timer (0-25 sec): This is the interval after which a Leave message is forwarded on a port. When a leave message from a host for a group is received, a group-specific query is sent to the port on which the leave message is received.

Figure 346 – Configuration > Spanning Tree By default, Spanning Tree is Disabled. If Enabled, the Switch will listen for BPDU packets and its accompanying Hello packet. BPDU packets are sent even if a BPDU packet was not received. Therefore, each link between bridges is sensitive to the status of the link.
Root Bridge, the Switch will start sending its own BPDU to all other switches for permission to become the Root Bridge. If it turns out that the Switch has the lowest Bridge Identifier, it will become the Root Bridge. A time interval may be chosen between 6 and 40 seconds.
Port Mirroring is a method of monitoring network traffic that forwards a copy of each incoming and/or outgoing packet from one port of the Switch to another port where the packet can be studied. This enables network managers to better monitor network performances.
QoS > 802.1p Default Priority This feature displays the status Quality of Service priority levels of each port, and for packets that are untagged, the switch will assign the priority in the tag depending on your configuration. Figure 368 – QoS > 802.1p Default Priority...
Security > Safeguard Engine D-Link’s Safeguard Engine is a robust and innovative technology that automatically throttles the impact of packet flooding into the switch's CPU. This function helps protect the Web-Smart Switch from being interrupted by malicious viruses or worm attacks. By default this is Enabled.
IEEE-802.1X provides a security standard for network access control, especially in Wi-Fi wireless networks. 802.1X holds a network port disconnected until authentication is completed. The switch uses Extensible Authentication Protocol over LANs (EAPOL) to exchange authentication protocol client identity (such as a user name) with the client, and forward it to another remote RADIUS authentication server to verify access rights.
Key: Masked password matching the Radius Server Key. Confirm Key: Enter the Key a second time for confirmation. TxPeriod: Sets the number of seconds that the switch waits for a response to an EAP-request/identity frame from the client before retransmitting the request. Default is 24 seconds.
This page provides two distinct features. The top table provides the ability to turn off auto learning Mac address if a port isn't connected to an uplink Switch (i.e. DHCP Server). By default, this feature is OFF (disabled). The Macs listed on this table may only connect from corresponding ports and VIDs, in order to protect the network from illegal Macs.
Security > Mac Address Table > Dynamic Forwarding Table For each port, this table displays the Mac address of each packet passing through the Switch. To add a Mac address to the Static Mac Address List, click the Add checkbox associated with the identified packet.
