Other Parts Discussed in Thread: AM5728
AM5728 ALE MODULE says:
if a recieved packet has a source address that is equal to destination address then the following occurs:
1 the address is learned if the address is not found in the table
2 the address is updated if the address is found
3 the packet is dropped
if there are two terminals use am5728 , they have same mac address .
and there is thread to send gratuitous arp to check ip conflict & mac conflict.
they both can send arp request and receive arp request（broadcast） ,and they both can send arp reply but can not receive arp reply.（same src and dst mac address ）
so the mac conflict can never be detected !!
but i need to check mac conflict , is there any way to resolve ?
