It has eth0. I am trying simple ping and ARP doesn't get resolved. Didn't see ARP requests going out via tcpdump capture. I see following message with dmesg | tail after ping started, didn't capture this before. Will look into what this msg corresponds to, if this is a known issue please let me know

What ports are on the bridge?  What traffic is coming in?
