Re: [suse-security] SuSEfirewall2 as bridging firewall



I don't understand your setup fully.

How many ethernet cards do you have and what do they all do?

Am I right in saying that there is only one machine running SuSE Linux 9.0
in the configuration you are describing?

Normally a bridge is an alternative to a router/firewall and would not be
built into the same device.  If you have 3 cards and are both bridging and
routing at the same time then this will be complicated to set up!

Carl
