This question may sound stupid, but I would like to ask it anyway.
On my lab's and private's FreeBSD box (lab is FBSD 6.2-STABLE, at home
7.0-CURRENT) I utilize pf() as my preferred filtering system.
What is the meaning of net.link.bridge.ipfw_arp and
net.link.bridge.ipfw? Does it mean it can only be filtered by ipfw() or
is this simply a global meaning that each bridged packet is injected
into any filtering facility? I'm not very firm with MAC based filtering,
I only know ipfw() is/was capable of doing that, but is pf() also? A
sneak look at the manpage doesn't revela that point for me, sorry for my
Thanks for your patience,
