I have a question about the ASA and the ARP traffic in IOS 9.1.2 for ASA 5585-X and multicontext. I have discovered a curious behaviour about the traffic ARP in the my CLUSTER of ASA's. When I try to send a ping between host in the same subnet and these host have as Gateway the interface of the ASA (ASA is his router) don't works, if I mark the check to enable the comunications between host connected to the same interface this cotinues without work. The only way to get my aim (ping between host), I need to implement and Access Rule allowing the traffic IP between my origin network and destination the same network.
I think that this is some feature of ASA that filter the ARP Request but I don't understand!!! Can I help me, please?
The ASA does use Proxy ARP by default to answer ARP requests.
I guess this should only happen if there is some NAT configurations which makes the ASA reply to ARP requests (because of mapped/NAT address configured) even though it really doesnt own the IP address.
Though I could swear that I have had environments with very simple NAT configuration and still expirience problems with ASAs Proxy ARP.
If you want to disable Proxy ARP on some ASA interface then you can use the following command
Your firewall should not see any traffic between the hosts on the same subnet.
If it is seeing traffic between the hosts then its likely that Proxy ARP on the ASA is the problem. Proxy ARP is enabled on the ASA by default on all interfaces. This essentially means that when the host connecting to the other host on the same subnet sends an ARP request the ASA might reply to that ARP request instead of the actual destination host. This is why traffic might get forwarded to the ASA instead of the actual host.
If you want to disable the Proxy ARP on some ASA interface then you can use
Where you replace the with the actual name you have given to the interface on the ASA. This disables the Proxy ARP
