[Archive] Unable to track different network segment on a firewall running in Transparent Layer 2 mode



Article ID: KB28541 KB Last Updated: 25 Sep 2020Version: 2.0

This article explains how to configure NSRP Track IP monitoring to track different network segments on a firewall running in Transparent Layer 2 mode.


Is NSRP TrackIP monitoring supported in transparent mode?


NSRP TRACK-IP monitoring is supported in Transparent mode.

  1. In NSRP, VLAN1 interface IP should be configured and, at the same time, there should be a manage-ip on the vlan1 interface (different from the interface IP) for the track-ip to work. This is a prerequisite for devices in NSRP.
    set interface vlan1 ip
    set interface vlan1 manage-ip

  2. Then, configure track-ip for interface vlan1, or simply do not specify any interface:

    set nsrp monitor track-ip ip
    set nsrp monitor track-ip ip interface vlan1 OR set nsrp monitor track-ip ip

  3. Make sure there is a route to reach the tracked IP (the route must be in a different network segment). To track a different network segment, you must have a route to reach that segment.

    set route interface vlan1 gateway
  4. Now, execute the command below to check the status of TRACK-IP:
get nsrp track-ip
ip address interval threshold wei tmout interface meth fail-count success-rate      1         3       1   1     vlan1    ping      0           100%
failure weight: 255, threshold: 255, not failed: 0 ip(s) failed, weighted sum = 0
