I have configured ACE module in bridged mode. Running the trace on servers, as well as on 'show conn' on ACE, I can see communication initiating from BVI to the rservers on certain ports. And I am not able to identify the actual source of this connection. Why does BVI start this kind of connection. Is it for the probe or something else. How can I find the actual source.

Then, this must be a probe.

what is the destination ip ?

Is it a rserver or gateway ?

The destination ip is the rserver ip.

The source ip is the ace ip under bvi.
