I am new to peplink and something unusual has happened that i can’t figure out why.
So from the beginning, I have 2 ISP and a peplink in drop-in mode, everything is connected to a SW, I’ve done some nat-mapping on the peplink IP from ISP2 to ISP1 (drop-in).
the image describes the set up, inbound is working, and everything seems fine.
Different colors represent different vlans even tho the Blue and Red have the same address range, as per drop in specification.
Now is the weird part… during set up, by mistake ISP 1 (LEFT, the one for drop in) was plugged on the blue vlan.
So peplink announced his mac on the red vlan (expected)
Then we unplugged ISP 1 and plugged on the correct vlan red.
And pepelink announced his mac on blue (expected), but kept announcing it on the red as well, like pepelink was the owner or got that mac from any other source.
Basically pepelink was announcing at the same time the same mac on both interfaces??!! So where was he getting it from, did he kept it and didn’t expire?
Since i could not clear the arp/mac table on the pepelink, the only way that i got it to stop falpping on the switch was to reboot the pepelink.
So is there a way to view the arp/mac table? I tried to go on the clish but “support” commands were not possible.
Shouldn’t peplink flush his arp/mac table after not receiving traffic form that source for a while (this occurred for more than 24h)?
