When using SolarCapture™ to capture packets from an interface that is also being used to send/receive PTP messages, PTP hybrid mode will not function correctly when SolarCapture consumes the ARP response messages. This prevents the unicast Delay_Request messages being sent from the PTP slave. sfptpd in multicast mode is not affected and you are advised to select multicast mode in the sfptpd configuration file.

Refer to the SolarCapture User Guide (SF-108469-CD) configuration options when using SolarCapture and sfptpd on the same server.
