Thu, 3 Feb 2000 20:47:01 -0600 (CST) After reading the bridge archives, and seeing the recent posts onipchains, I wonder if to ressurect a crazy old dream: bridging, chains anddhcp? I’m on a cable modem, with two linux boxen pulling dhcp throughthe hub and cable modem. I’d like to insert a firewall box in between. Trouble is, the firewall would have to bridge the networks transparently,forwarding dhcp packets silently back and forth using the original MACaddresses, so that the cable modem (and cable system) doesn’t know thefirewall is there. This seems conceivable in theory; is it remotely possible with thebridging code? (BTW, apologies if this has been covered already. I found no FAQson the subject.)
