TLB teaming with FWSM.

Unanswered Question
Mar 8th, 2008

In server teaming when we select TLB (transmit load balancing) method. Server will transmit packets based on single virtual IP address and different MAC addresses.

If the server gateway is FWSM, how FWSM will treat a packet when it receives one packet from IP address 1.1.1.1 and MAC A and other packet from same IP address but different MAC example MAC B.

Cisco has no issues with this config.

But then my worry is when FWSM see the packets coming from same source IP address but different MAC addresses. Does it takes this as ARP attack ? or MAC address attack ?

Please suggest.
