Forticlient casuing an igmpv2 storm on my student vlan
I recently have uninstalled forticlient from an imaged machine, in an unrelated matter, and in putting the client back on the machine, I simply used the offline installer. after registering and firing this up, I notice aan IGMPv2 storm across my student vlan where the machine is connected to. when I turn forticlient off or disconnect the laptop I have just connected this stops. I'm wondering if anyone can shed some light on this?
when I connect the forticlient the storm starts....when I disconnect or unregister the client it stops...im seeing it via wireshark, so that would tell me that it would have something to do with forticlient. just an educated guess....
I can confirm this. We rolled out forticlient 5.4.0 on 30 clients and a IGMP storm brought most of the low-bandwith devices (100mbit voip phones, clients via wifi, printers...) in the network to a standstill.
