thank you,
The problem I am facing,
 I have NetBSD host with four interfaces(wm0-wm3), running
added br0 bridge which is nothing but tap1, and added one of the
interface/port wm1 to br0,my configuration is,
host-1 (connected to wm1) -
its working fine,I am able to ping from host to tap1 i.e gw
but when try add one other interface/port say wm3 with host-2 -
it fail to ping
As I understand the interface with MAC address of same as tap1 can only
ping to host not other, does it mean it work for only one port?
