We had a high cellular data consumption issue with our efive/remote flexy.
With the assistance of Tim, we have made some modifications to our efives with ebtables. These modifications solved a good lot of our consumption problems. However, I noticed that you purposely didn’t filter out the ARP protocol with the following command :
ebtables -I FORWARD -p 0x806 -j ACCEPT
Is there a reason? Because the ARP protocol currently takes up to 1.9GB per month per remote station. If there’s no reason for this, is it safe to remove that altogether and just keep the following lines in ebtables? :
-d Broadcast -i lan-1 -j DROP
-d Multicast -i lan-1 -j DROP
