    anything x6:... is a private MAC; do you have extenders running? (I am not aware that homepod can randomize MAC ...)

    No, I don't have extenders running... that said I was clearly half asleep when debugging this last night as the screenshot of discovery clearly says Apple TV not HomePod. 🤦‍♂️ Although the Apple TV doesn't have randomized MAC either. Will have to play around again next time it happens.

    So here it is again, Firewalla with a new device with MAC randomisation on, no IPv4 address but an IPv6 address

    Discovery shows ieee1588, meshcop, raop, homekit, airplay, sleep-proxy, srpl-tls and companion-link services all on that  IPv6 address

     

    The places it mentions an IPv4 address matches up with the Bedroom Apple TV

    I'd check the blocked routes to confirm it looks like homepod traffic, preferably with VPN off... especially since the VPN isn't getting used anyways (internet disabled). I've seen this with Apple Watches also.
