Question Asked:

I am using a network sniffer and seeing a lot GVCP discovery pings on my network. The packets are using broadcast address. Is there a way to control GVCP pings to the local segment which the cameras are on?

Hi Ken, Both broadcast and unicast discovery messages are supported via the GigEVision standard, so theoretically it should even be possible to send a discovery message to a specific ip address (even if it is on a different network, like crossing a router). The best bet though is to check with both the driver manufacturer and camera manufacturer (if you're using third party software) to see if / how it's implemented in their tools. I hope that helps!
