Offline status for static DHCP mappings?
So I finally got around to moving dns and dhcp to the pfsense gateway. I have a couple of hosts that I set up for static DHCP mappings, and that all works fine. The only oddity is that on the Status => DHCP leases page, the hosts show up as "offline", which is a little offputting, since they are in fact online. Is this just the way it works?
The online/offline status is keyed off of the system's presence in the ARP table. Do those same systems show up in Diagnostics > ARP Tables?
My statics show up as online, as long as they have recently communicated with the gateway.
Ah, okay, yes, that is exactly what is happening. Thanks!
