Question about Firewalla Gold and UDM Pro
So I have a Firewalla Gold connected to UDM Pro. The Fairwalla is in simple mode, The UDM is about a month old so I have not had this setup for long. At first it was ok but the past 2 weeks or so I have noticed that under the clients on the UDM Pro that the Firewalla gold will change IP. I think this is just a visual and the Firewalla is not really changing IP. And I am thinking that it has to do with the way simple mode works. but it also seem to be having some affect on the Firewalla itself. I have noticed at the same time that now on the Firewalla it keeps alarming that the Firewalla is accessing gaming, video, abnormal upload, etc... and alot of the alarms are making it look like the Firewalla is access this rather that the devices on my network.
I was wondering if anyone else with this setup has noticed anything like this.
Do you have a screenshot of the alarm that you see firewalla talking about him/herself? (the alarm details?)
Yes, in simple mode, Firewalla arp spoofing sometimes may cause confusion to the main router, in such cases, you should rely on Firewalla side for device info.
Also, I do notice recently there are a lot more people using the Gold in bridge mode with the UDM Pro and had good results. You may want to give that a try https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500012304202-Firewalla-Transparent-Bridge-Mode
So what is strange is that the two screenshot show the devices as Firewalla Gold but in both cases these are the IP and MAC address of other devices on my network. The second one is the IP and MAC of my desktop but everything is show like it the firewalla other than the IP and MAC those are correct.
I did have one question about the bridge mode, I have been thinking about that for sometime but on the help page is says not to connect the Firewalla to the ISP modem. But for the bridge mode this would be the the only option that I have. It would be set as follows (ISP Modem -> Firewalla Gold -> UDM) would this work?
