 Subject:  transparent filtering bridge help
 Date:  Mon, 07 Feb 2005 13:55:34 -0500
Hello,

I have 192.168.5.56/24 on my LAN interface, 192.168.1.197 on
my WAN, and OPT1 bridged to my WAN. Filtering bridge checkbox
is enabled. Firmware is 1.11.

WAN and LAN are both plugged into the same switch, for management
purposes. When I try to ping or http into the LAN IP from another
port on the switch, I see block rules in my log stating that the
WAN interface has blocked access to 192.168.5.56.

Why is the WAN interface stealing packets from the LAN interface,
and how do I stop it?
