Add Static ARP Entries

Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is a protocol that associates the IP address with the MAC address of a network device. A static ARP entry is a permanent entry in your ARP cache.

For example, it might be necessary to add static ARP entries for routers connected to an Active/Active FireCluster. For more information, see Add Static ARP Entries for an Active/Active FireCluster .

  5. In the MAC Address text box, type the MAC address of the device.
