Sounds like it. And yes, they are, but welcome to the wonderful world of
All Sun boxen, unless the OpenProm parameter "local-mac-address" is true
and the card has it's own MAC onboard,
give all of their network interfaces a MAC from their NVRAM on the
So, bridge two interfaces with the same MAC, and suddenly, arp requests get
a whole lot more interesting. As do many other operations involving the
It's a boneheaded design decision, but I don't think they ever intended to
have these things run bridging either.
And AFAIK, OpenBSD ignores the local-mac-address parameter, and I can't
find any documentation (but I've not been looking too hard
here) to disprove that.
You could try setting it, to see what happens:
has a sea.c source code file that was written to set the ethernet addresses
manually, but the post was from 1998, so I don't know if it
will work with current sources.
If niether of those work, unless someone else has more of a clue about this
(which is probably the case 8-) ), is to use another machine
that doesn't do MAC addresses in a not quite so braindead fashion.
Or...You didn't really want a bridging firewall, did you? You could always
use PF/NAT, or subnet your IP space (if you can) and just use PF.
