Forwarding Database Information controls
An address that is in the forwarding (FORWARD) state means that the switch has learned it. When in the
trunking (TRUNK) state, the port field represents the trunk group number. If the state for the port is listed as
unknown (UNKNOWN), the MAC address has not yet been learned by the switch, but has only been seen
as a destination address. When an address is in the unknown state, no outbound port is indicated.
