i've got a question regarding ARP on FreeBSD 4.10. I have two
machines (archiver and homer). each machine has two interfaces, one on
our 100Base-T LAN and another on our seperate Gig-E LAN. Each interface
is given a different name, so the gig-e interface for homer is
gate-homer (don't ask why we use gate-hostname wierd SGI thing...).
Anyway when I perform a large NFS copy via the "gate" interfaces is get
this error in my syslog:
arp: 126.96.36.199 is on em0 but got reply from xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:ee on fxp0
(let's pretend that's a valid MAC address, the last two bits are the
only interesting part anyway).
sure enough the MAC address that ends in :ee is the MAC addr. for the
100Base-T connection on the NFS server, not the mounted gig-e
interface. wierd eh? So what's happening, does anyone have an idea?
