Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

The MAC address table of the wireless access point stores MAC addresses of other devices. When forwarding an Ethernet frame, the wireless access point searches the MAC address table for the outbound interface according to the destination MAC address and VLAN ID in the Ethernet frame.

The MAC address table contains the following MAC address entries:
  • Blackhole MAC address entries that are used to discard packets with the specified MAC addresses or destination MAC addresses. Blackhole MAC address entries are manually configured and will not be aged out.
  • Static MAC entries that are manually configured and will not be aged out.
  • Dynamic MAC address entries that are learned by the wireless access point and will be aged out when the aging time expires.

To check whether blackhole MAC address entries are configured correctly, run this command. These entries ensure communication between authorized users.

Follow-up Procedure

If any blackhole MAC address entry in the command output is incorrect, run the undo mac-address command to delete the entry or run the mac-address command to add a correct one.


If you run the display mac-address blackhole command without parameters, all blackhole MAC address entries are displayed.

If the MAC address table does not contain any blackhole MAC address, no information is displayed.
