Assuming this is not a switch issue (which you confirmed by the arp packet missing in the packet capture), we can diagnose the problem as follows:

  1. In one shell set a simple packet capture as follows:

    tcpdump -i ethX -vvv -x arp

  2. ethX is the ‘physicaldevice’ setting in haast.conf which should match the ethernet adapter you are using for VoIP traffic.

[*]In another shell issue an arping from the command line (exactly as follows):

arping -U -I ethX -c 5 sharedIP
[*]ethX is the ‘physicaldevice’ key set in haast.conf which should match the ethernet adapter you are using for VoIP traffic.
[*]If ‘vlanid’ is set in haast.conf the “.haast” is appended to the ethX adapter name
[*]sharedIP is the IP address moving between peers, set in the ‘address’ key of the ‘voipnic’ stanza of haast.conf
[*]Stop the tcpdump and show the interface details using ifconfig

ifconfig
[*]Post the full output of command and response from all 3 steps above. If any of the information above is security sensitive (eg: a public IP is in the output) email the above to support@telium.io , do not obfuscate the data.

If traffic did not start to flow with the above command (and assuming there were no errors reported above), can you try a variation of the arping syntax that consistently works for you? Please post what worked for you.

If the above arping command generated any errors then we can offer a workaround. Although rare, we have seen the above command syntax fail on a Linux distro that customized its arping command. What distro and arping (from what package) are you using? And what exact syntax would allow the arping command to be successful? If we see enough need for that particular arping syntax we’ll add support directly to HAAst. As well, we can offer a workaround if that’s the only arping package available for your distro.
