Bridging two laptops
Maybe you can help me, as I've little experience with "advanced" networking.
* A wireless router (acts as DHCP): 192.168.1.1
* Laptop A, which is connected wireless: ipw0, 192.168.1.101
* Laptop B, which does not have wireless access, but is connected
via a cross-link cable to Laptop A's rl0 network interface.
It's network device is xi0 (DHCP). It's running NetBSD, but that
should not matter.
On Laptop A (DragonFly), I did:
I also put both rl0 and ipw0 into promisc mode. rl0 does not have an IP
Laptop B gets IP 192.168.1.103 assigned via DHCP. But I can't ping
laptop A from B and vice versa.
Maybe someone can enlighten me? Thanks.
