    Hi all,

    What happen in this case :

    - Flow Control is enabled on the client (windows) and server (solaris)
    - The clients and server are connected to the cisco switch 2950
    - The cisco switch 2950 seem not support Flow control on Fast Ethernet
    interface
    - The server send data by multicast (or broadcast) traffic to the client

    The flow control do PAUSE communication btw clients and server. But how it
    possible to do PAUSE when server send data to the clients by multicast or
    broadcast ?

    For multicast and Broadcast traffic, it seem not possible to use Flow
    Control. Is-it true ?

    If not, how it's done ?
    If it's true, how slowest client in the multicast group (or broadcast)
    manage the traffic received ?

    ThankYou very much

    Best Regards
    Rahan
