I have a L3 switch. Port 1 and port 2 of the switch are added to VLAN 30 and an IP address (184.108.40.206) is assigned to it.
Port1 and port2 are connected to Host1 and Host2 respectively. Host 1 and Host2 are assigned with IP as below
L3 swtich port1 (VLAN 30) --- Host 1 (220.127.116.11) L3 swtich port2 (VLAN 30) --- Host 2 (18.104.22.168)
Now I am trying to ping host 2 from host 1. Host 1 is sending ARP request for 22.214.171.124 to the switch, In Linux of the switch for VLAN 30, I can see the ARP request, but I don't see reply or anything, I guess the Linux is just dropping the packet.
My expectation is to ping the Host 2 from Host 1, Is there anything I am missing there.
I am capturing the packets on tcpdump for the interface Vlan30, So I am getting only the tagged packet. I don't see any ARP request on Host 2. But still I am able to ping 126.96.36.199 from both hosts.
In my HOST 1 & 2, I have ARP learnt for 188.8.131.52 and default gw is 184.108.40.206. But when I initiate ping for 220.127.116.11 from Host 1(18.104.22.168), it is initiating ARP for 22.214.171.124.
