Configuration hints

    In order to keep the Internet exchange stable, we require all customers to prohibit certain types of traffic.

    Checklist of requirements for equipment connected to the exchanges we operate:

    • Do not send BPDUs
    • Do not send CDP or LLDP packets
    • Do not send directed broadcasts packets
    • Do not send keepalive packets

    For configuration hints for various vendors check out Euro-iX Configration Samples

    We've provided sample configurations for your convenience.
