Lldp not working


I am using a TPLink Archer C7, V5, with OpenWrt 21.02.3. I have installed lldpd version 1.0.7-1.

After connecting my router to a network that contains a raspberry pi which also has lldpd installed, I can check (through Wireshark) that both the raspberry and the router are sending lldp packets periodically. However, only the rapsberry shows me the router as its neighbor when I issue the command lldpcli show neighbors. The Archer C7 prints a blank list in response to that command. Anyone knows what is going on? Perhaps the router CPU is not receiving the lldp packets?

I appreciate any help.

Did you allow the packets thru your firewall?

Not quite sure how I would do that. The lldp packets are ethernet multicast and are being sent in the LAN network. The openwrt firewall is configured to accept input from LAN zone.
