Spirent TestCenter: How to use option "bypass IP subnet checking"?

  • Creating bound stream, there is an option "bypass IP subnet checking" which the MAC address of the destination will be used in the traffic even if ARP is successful to the gateway. Here is an example about when and how to use this option:
  • Source Device:          MAC=00:00:00:00:00:01, IP address=, Gateway with MAC=00:10:94:00:00:55
