Description

opening to track issue we discussed earlier. Where WAN is an Ethernet interface, and OPT1/WAN2 is PPP, when WAN has no link, PPP stops functioning after the ARP cache for the default gateway expires. May affect other scenarios as well.

History

It should behave correctly now.

A patch was added to allow packets sent from the host to reach pf(4) even though a route cannot be found. This is to allow route-to to forward packets even though the host itself does not have a route to the destination.

#2 Updated by Chris Buechler almost 9 years ago

This looks to be fixed. Was easily replicated before and can't do so now. Leaving to feedback for a bit for more testing.
