Bridge between ethernet interface and tap interface
I have created a TAP interface and a Bridge. My linux system (system 1) has 2 NIC, eth0 and eth1. I have added the TAP interface and eth1 to the bridge. I have another linux system (system 2) connected to eth1 through a switch, both are in the same network. Iam not able to ping to eth1 of system 1 from system 2. The ethereal running on the bridge is able to capture the Echo Request packets. But, when I make eth0 and eth1's IP
address as 0.0.0.0, the ping succeeds. Why is the bridge not able to respond to the ping packets?
