Mon, 14 Feb 2000 15:48:33 +0100 (CET)Hello,To all people who have been seeing bridge reachability problems: pleasefollow the following instructions.1. Save the output of ‘brctl showbr br0’2. Save the output of ‘ifconfig -a’3. Save the output of ‘route’4. Save the output of ‘arp’5. Save the output of ‘tcpdump -i br0 -R -n -e -x’ while you ping the bridge from another machine.6. Save the output of ‘tcpdump -i eth0 -R -n -e -x’ while you ping the bridge from another machine.7. Wrap it all up and send it to the mailing list.I have honestly not a clue what is going on in these cases, but as it’sapparently not just a single isolated case, there _is_ something going on.Somewhere.Anyway, thanks in advance to everybody for their help.greetings,LennertOn Mon, 14 Feb 2000, Janne Liimatainen wrote:> Hello all.>> I too cannot seem to get traffic to and from the bridge working.
