[FAQ]What Does Incomplete Mean in an ARP Entry?

Latest reply: Dec 29, 2015 02:05:13 2055 1 0 0
If the value of MAC ADDRESS in an ARP entry is Incomplete, this ARP entry is a temporary one. When IP packets trigger ARP Miss messages, the device generates temporary ARP entries and sends ARP Request packets to the destination network segment.
  • When a temporary ARP entry is not aged out:
    • Before receiving an ARP Reply packet, the device discards the IP packets matching the temporary ARP entry, and no ARP Miss message is triggered.
    • After receiving the ARP Reply packet, the device generates a correct ARP entry to replace the temporary entry.
  • After the temporary ARP entry ages out, the device deletes this entry.
