Yes - what do people use for bridging under FreeBSD with hostap? The
FreeBSD bridging code (options BRIDGE) or the netgraph bridge? With
BRIDGE, I'm seeing the following oddity:
suppose there are two interfaces,
wi0: no IP address assigned, hostap
used with the following sysctls:
Wireless clients can associate to the hostap access point and ping hosts
on sis0 through the bridge without any problems at all. However, they
cannot ping 192.168.0.230 - the box does not even respond to ARP queries
on wi0. Of course, hosts on sis0 can ping 192.168.0.230 OK.
ipfilter and ipfw were turned off for this test, and I even tried it on my
notebook in addition to a net4511 - made no difference.
This is a little bit irritating - I have tried netgraph bridging, and with
that it works as intended - 192.168.0.230 can be pinged both from wireless
clients and from hosts on sis0. However, I'd rather use the FreeBSD kernel
bridge if possible, as that netgraph stuff is a bit cumbersome.
Does anybody know what could cause this problem and if there's a solution?
