Hello dear all.
I've got a curious thing with FBS 5.1-RELEASE, concerning arp
requests/reply. I have a LAN, connected to Internet through CISCO
router. Recently I had to move one ip address inside my LAN from a 4.8
box to a 5.1 box without a reboot (ifconfig ...). After this I had
discovered that CISCO continue sending packets to old MAC address (to
4.8). After an investigation of the problem I discovered, thet CISCO had
not "forgotten" the old MAC. If ip is being moved from 4.8 box to 4.8
box this effect fanishes.
Did anyone get similar problems? Is it a feature or a bug in 5.1, or
I don't understand something?
Great thanks in advance for any support.
With respect and kind regards,
Ilya V. Serov, St-Petersburg, Russia.
