Should multicast be enabled on a Sonic Wall firewall?
Posted on 2010-09-05
As a general rule should multicast be enabled on a Sonic Wall firewall running in transparent mode? We sometimes notice some bogging down of our network I believe due to it being flat with no VLAN's.
We use Ghost sometimes to image computers and we always disconnect the lab from the rest of the network because it bogs down the network. I'm not really concerned so much with imaging, but just wondered as a general rule if it helps or hurts a network overall as far as bandwidth and performance.
We have a Sonic Wall 5060.
