Bridging TUN and Ethenet

I have the following setup:
System 1 --------- System 2
eth0 ----------- eth0 br0 tap0

Iam trying to ping to system 2 from system 1. I also run ethereal
on system 2 looking at eth0, br0 and tap0.
I have a small application running on system 2 which opens the
tap0 interface and reads data from it.

The ping is not successful and I dont see any packets on the ethereal
monitoring tap0. I see only ARP requests on tap0, eth0 and br0.
Am I missing any configuration?


bridge, tap
