RIB to FIB when pinging

Why is it that when pinging from the f0/0 (10.1.55.1) to a host (10.1.55.38) the ICMP reply are using RIB?  I have CEF enabled and I can understand why the icmp packet destined for .38 would use the FIB table. - Why would the responses use the RIB?

Jun  8 16:03:18.995: IP: tableid=0, s=10.1.55.1 (local), d=10.1.55.38 (FastEthernet0/0), routed via FIB

Jun  8 16:03:18.995: IP: s=10.1.55.1 (local), d=10.1.55.38 (FastEthernet0/0), len 100, sending

FYI -  I can ping this device from it's LAN, but not from another network ie 10.1.38.0. -  I can ping everything else on the 10.1.55.0 network but not that one device. It's jet direct.
thanks guy and gals.

The destination is not local.

Re: RIB to FIB when pinging

Hi,

It's not using the FIB because it doesnt have to forward the packet to another host. The router is the destination. The FIB is a Mtrie leaf data structure. Each leaf points to an entry in the adjacency table.

Re: RIB to FIB when pinging

And...Look's like a bad default gateway on the host...try enabling proxy arp just to test it.

Thanks Dominic and the gateway was the first thing I checked and it's set correctly!!!!

Why does it say 'FIB' here?

Got it and thanks, D.

Re: RIB to FIB when pinging

Is the netmask of the client correct?

I would realy try proxy-arp if I was you, over the years, I've stumble over a few host with bad network implementation.

Re: RIB to FIB when pinging

I'm going to try proxy-arp now. The all ip information is correct. 10.1.55.38/24 gw is .1... It was working early today and then the location had a power failure.
