Followed the advice here:

not seem to pass packets (even with PF disabled). With OpenBSD 3.8, I

it works fine, bu I would like to run DragonFly. :-)
Can somebody recommend diagnostic steps or give me some hints?
Thanks, and sorry for bothering. ;-)
If you are going to pass *all* the traffic, what is wrong with a bit of CAT5 and
a dumb hub?
(ducks and waddles off a few meters...)
OK - do you mean to:
- route, NAT, DHCP share a connection for (all those folks)?
- firewall/filter for them?
- proxy some service(s)?
- electronically vampire-tap their traffic?
FWIW, a 'bridging' arrangement is often one of the hardest-working ways to do
several of these things for the value-add, so is 'bridging' really what you need?
i.e. - what is the intended service?
