 Subject:  Bridging - can't ping
 Date:  Thu, 01 Sep 2005 20:14:03 -0500
My setup, with 1.2b9:

WAN - (WAN has IP, gateway
OPT1 - bridged to WAN (PCs have
LAN - (not connected to either WAN or OPT1)

WAN and OPT1 are bridged, with filtering of bridged packets enabled. 
From m0n0wall, if I...

ping (located on WAN) - "no route to host"
ping (located on OPT1) -  3 success plus ~10 random "duplicates"
ping any Internet IP (located on WAN) - "no route to host"

I assume the duplicate packets seen by m0n0wall is it being confused
over seeing the replies on both sides of the bridge.  But, how come I
cannot ping to the Internet?  Pinging from any PC on OPT1 works fine. 
The firewall is set to allow everything, and there are no entries in the
log.  If I add a static route to OPT1 for using gateway, I can ping successfully, with ~4 duplicate replies.

	One eventual goal is to get the NTP client working.  Currently
with the time zone set to CST6CDT or America/Chicago, m0n0wall logs show the
time 5 hours behind the PC clock setting.
