Hello Robert,

Thanks for your answer.

I read carfully the issue your pointed and it appears that the
vnet_default_interface parameter set to auto, em0 is added to the bridge, set
to none, em0 is not added to the bridge.

So I stopped my jail, destroy bridge0 interface, set vnet_default_interface to
none and restart the jail.

As exepected em0 is not in the bridge any more:

bridge0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
	description: jails-bridge
	ether 58:9c:fc:10:ed:66
	inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
	id 00:00:00:00:00:00 priority 32768 hellotime 2 fwddelay 15
	maxage 20 holdcnt 6 proto rstp maxaddr 2000 timeout 1200
	root id 00:00:00:00:00:00 priority 32768 ifcost 0 port 0
	member: vnet0.657 flags=143<LEARNING,DISCOVER,AUTOEDGE,AUTOPTP>
	        ifmaxaddr 0 port 6 priority 128 path cost 2000
	groups: bridge

Since from the jail I cannot ping anything, from outside I cannot connect to
the jail and from the jail I cannot connect to outside host.

In fact, see quickly, the situation is worst.

I did not look at the routing tables yet (too many other things to do).

As I understood your did not use iocage any more. Did you use the "raw"
method (ie /etc/jail.conf)? If yes, I am really interested of "picture" of
your configurætion.

To be honest, I used to try the "raw" method whithout success before tring

Thanks for your time and advices.
