SunScreen EFS Release 3.0 Release Notes

ARP Responses Cannot Get From the Administrative Interface To the Stealth Interface (4257738)

Synopsis: Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) responses cannot get from the Administrative interface to the stealth interface with a QFE card if the two interfaces are on the same network and the remote Administration station is outside the EFS stealth protected network.

Description: This problem is caused by a feature of the QFE card. If you use the QFE card, the ethernet address is the same for the ADMIN and SPF ports. Packets are ignored by the QFE card when the source ethernet address is the same as itself.

Workaround: In Openboot PROM, set the local-mac-address variable to true. Type:

ok setenv local-mac-address? true
