 Subject:  VLANs in 1.3
 Date:  Mon, 14 Dec 2009 15:35:24 -0200

I would like to report what appears to be a bug with vlans on Monowall 1.3

I´m running a Xen Citrix 5.5 (latest version), running Monowall 1.3 
machines. To each machine I allocated 128MB RAM.

The problem I ran into is that when trying to create vlans, it didn´t 
work. The web page (and console) says that everything was set properly, 
but the network does not work. I´ve used Wireshark to read the packets 
coming out of the Monowall box, and confirmed that the packets are 
coming out without any vlan tag.

I´ve installed a Debian virtual box on the same machine, and vlans work 

Also, I´ve downgraded the same virtual box to Monowall version 1.235, 
and without almost any changes, it worked. The only change required was 
to rename to interfaces. 1.235 calls the NICs rl0 and rl1. Monowall 1.3 
calls them re0 and re1. All I had to do was to correct that on the 
console, and the 1.235 downgraded box started working with vlans.

I´ve tried to invert LAN and WAN boards (Using the Intel onboard NIC as 
LAN instead of as WAN). Didn´t work either.

The physical server is a Core 2 Duo 3Ghz, 4GB RAM, 1 82567LM-3 Intel NIC 
(onboard), 1 D-Link DGE-530T NIC.

Each virtual server was set with 128MB RAM, 500MB disk (minimum that Xen 

I´ve reported that on the Monowall Support list.

Is that a bug on the re driver? Monowall?
