I have created a docker based test setup using docker-compose. My setup has two containers, “lldp1” and “lldp2”. I have installed lldpd in both containers and started the same. I do see that lldp1 is sending LLDP PDUs on eth1, and expect these frames to pop up on eth1 on lldp2. The problem is, I do not see them.
And I expected to see these PDUs appear on another container. I do not see them.
The destination MAC address used for these is an ethernet multicast address of “01:80:c2:00:00:0e”. I am wondering if this MAC-DA is causing packets not to be forwarded to lldp2.
Any insights on how to solve this problem would be helpful.
I am using Docker for MAC: Docker version 17.12.0-ce, build c97c6d6
