A computer has both a LAN and WAN address in ARP Table

  • Looking at my ARP table I see that one of my computers has my actual WAN IP assigned to it. It should only be on the LAN. ipconfig doesn't show this entry, what am I missing?

    Hmmm. Odd. How are you retrieving that table? Via the webgui?


  • Yes…

    This host "Bigfeller" has both the wan IP and Lan IP assigned to the same mac address on Diagnostics/ARP table. IPConfig /all on this host does not show this connection.
