Ok that's explain all, I was able to create two different VLAN's with a
cable between two ports ( in order to simulate two different switches), each port was
appartaining to a different VLAN and I was seeing ARPREQUEST passing by the cable in
order to detect the address in the other side, just for fun I replaced the cable with
a traffic shaper and all was working very fine...
However I wasn't curious enough to see who was the arp request source, may be was not
the "router/switcher" but a client that was doing it.
