Enable the Return to Ethernet Sender Mode

Aug 31, 2017

This mode allows multiple routers to share an appliance. The appliance forwards virtual inline output packets back to where they came from, as indicated by the Ethernet address of the incoming packet. If two routers share a single appliance, each gets its own traffic back, but not the traffic from the other router. This mode also works with a single router.
