Spirent TestCenter: Manually editing the Gateway MAC address on the device block doesn't show up in the bound stream block.
Create a bound stream between two devices (no emulation, traffic only), modify the gateway MAC address on the Device block.
Uncheck the box “Resolve IPV4 Gateway Mac Address”, and modify the IPv4 Gateway MAC Address.
I expect this modified value to show up in any bound streams, but it doesn’t. Instead, I seem to get the default gateway Mac address of 00:00:01:00:00:01.
If you edit the stream block it will display the default MAC, but the actual packet that is sent will use the MAC you manually configured in the Device.
So after you set the device MAC address, click apply, then send the traffic.
To verify you can connected two Spirent ports back to back then capture what is received on the receive port.
