I've created an IPSec VPN connection between two Mikrotik routers. They are connecting via IKEv2.
Inside our two networks, we have a printer
spooler which needs the printer's MAC address to verify it's connecting to the right printer, as well as an IP Address to initially make that connection.
I'm going to reference the two networks as the
printer network and
Pinging the IP Address to the printer from inside the
spooler network works fine. We can even configure the printer via the Web interface.
However, the spooler application fails every time we try to send a print job to it.
When we run a IP Scan the
spooler Mikrotik router cannot seem to return the MAC address of the device, however when inside the
printer network, the MAC address returns fine.
Is there a reason why the VPN cannot return the MAC address of the printer? It seems kind why this isn't working when HTTP/S works smoothly and quickly.
