I'm not sure why everybody keeps claiming bridging is broken in b3.  I
have one in production which is what that write up is based on, and
just set up another from scratch on a test network, following that
step by step, to see if I could replicate any problems.  I couldn't,
it worked right off.

The production one is a hard worker too, and it's been flawless.

What exactly isn't working right?  You seeing anything in your
firewall logs indicating what's going on, if the traffic is getting
dropped possibly?

Remember this, so you can't get from LAN to the bridged OPT interface.
