I am making some tests with a wireless architecture based on WLC4402. (I am rather new to wireless world...)
There is a gateway which sends gratuitous ARPs from the wired part of the network, and these broadcasts needs to reach wireless clients. (That gateway is of course put in the same vlan as the wireless clients).
These broadcast frames never reach wireless clients, while they reach wired clients put in the same vlan.
With some sniffing, I can see that the gratuitous ARPs are correctly sent from the LAN to the WLC, but it seems that they never come back to reach the wireless clients.
I enabled the option "Broadcast Forwarding" but without result.
The DHCP proxy feature is disabled.
I tried versions 4.2, 5.2 and 6.0.
So the ARP tables of the wireless clients are correctly updated only when I flush them or when I wait for the ARP entries to time out.
Do someone have any idea about what could filter the broadcasts? I am suspecting a security issue but I thought that the WLAN is supposed to be totally bridged with wired part of the LAN!!
Thanks in advance
