From where to where are you pinging? Can you provide what ip addresses you have applied on the devices?

A switch works at Layer 2 so it doesn need arp to map L3 address to L2 address for framing.

You are pinging your host from another host or router and the frame is forwarded through the switch with the mac-table.

Is the ip address of the switch which is used as source and the end user of the same subnet?


Did you see the arp entry for the switch mac-address in your pc?
