How to make two clients on same VLAN communicate to each other when tunnel-loop-prevention is enabled on tunneled-node configuration at controller?
Whenever we enable tunnel-loop-prevention on controller while we configure tunneled-node, the communication between two tunneled-node client on same VLAN is blocked or dropped.
If the tunneled-node clients are of different VLANs then they can communicate between them even when the tunnel-loop-prevention is enabled on the controller.
To make two tunneled-node client on same VLAN to communicate between them, we need to enable "local-proxy-arp" for the interface VLAN on the controller.
Once it is enabled now the tunneled-node clients on same VLAN can communicate between each other.
To enable "local-proxy-arp":
Get to the interface of the VLAN on the controller
(config)#interface vlan 5
To enable tunnel loop prevention on controller
To check if tunnel-loop-prevention is enabled or disabled
#show tunneled-node config
Tunnelded node Server: Enabled
Tunnel Loop Prevention: Enabled
To check if local-proxy-ap is enabled:
#show interface vlan 5
Look for in the output "ProxyARP enable"
