In this case I can take any of them
Anyways,- Today i got some time to play around and i tried to configure the machine as bridge.
I added device if_bridge to kernel
then i added the code to the rc.conf
ifconfig_bridge0="addm sk0 addm sk1 up"
now, i dun have any network address assigned to any of the interface and connect the two lan cards to two other machines and try to ping those machines from each other. but no success.
... do you think, this is as expected..? (i think bridge does not need to have any IP address..)
