FDB on XGS1210 & XGS1250

I really would the like to be able to examine the Forwarding Data Base of mac-addresses on my XGS1210 and XGS1250.

When trying to solve network problems, this can be essential, and since the data is already there, it should be easy to display it in the web i/f.

    Hi @BarbaGrump,

    Thanks for sharing your idea, you mean the MAC table, is that correct?
    By the way, could you share your network scope? Where did you place your XGS1210 & XGS1250?

    Hi. Yes, the MAC-address-table. Different brands, different names. My network at home/homelab…see pic.

    I have several VLANs spanning one or more switches.

    Hi @BarbaGrump,

    We appreciate your input and share your thoughts about examining the MAC table on the XGS1210 and XGS1250. XGS1210 & XGS1250 currently don’t support the MAC table because they are entry-level switches. We will monitor this idea to gauge user interest and consider its feasibility.
    If anyone likes this idea, please don't hesitate to leave your comments and vote for this idea.

    This cant be right!

    Every switch needs a mac-address table to know which port to forward incoming frames to, so I'm pretty sure the XGS1210/50 does support it. The thing missing, is a simple webpage to show it.

    Hi @BarbaGrump,

    I meant to display the MAC table on the Web GUI. Apologize for misleading you.
