[j-nsp] Question about 100 Gbps MPC4E

If you take the 100G port out of LAG does it have any impact on the issue you are seeing?  Can you share software version you are running?

Sorry about delay to answer this post.

We are trying to connect our JUNIPER MX960 router to a IX (Internet Exchange Point).

Once you are connected for the first time, the guys from the IX did a simple test (linux script) .. similar to an limited ARP Spoofing on every single physical port to evaluate the number of MAC answers supported for the router (minimum accepted is 1200). They will connect you to L2 main matrix.

We have another board on this router ... same MPC4E with 32 x 10G SFPP interfaces.  When we did the same ARP Spoofing test using a LAG with 8 x 10G interfaces ... it works fine.

With the new MPC4E board (2 x 100G + 8 x 10G SFPP) the test is not working.
The 100G (et-x/x/x) interface configured inside an AEx logical interface does not answer more than 80 MACs ...

We did every single configuration possible on this board ... but nothing is working.

The router learns the 1200 MACs ... but the answer does not return to the pc machine tester.

I was thinking about some special configuration for this board to do it to work. JUNIPER said that there is not any special configuration needed.

Today we will do a simple test using ettercap and a switch with 10G connections directly to the new board to see if we got something different.

Thanks a lot,
