    vale vs bridge

    Hi all, What's the difference between vale and a bridge? The only thing that I gather thus far is that bridge is a simple forwarder, irrespective of the destined mac address, whereas vale will verify based on the mac since its a switch? Is this an over-simplification or accurate or mistaken?

    Test bridge and tap first without VM?

    Is it possible to first test a bridge and tap, and maybe even a virtual network interface, before applying it to a VM? I imagine the virtual interface would not be the same one that the VM would create, but, this would be a nice troubleshooting step for getting bridged networking to work on...

    Virtualbox guest not recieving traffic from bridge

    I have two bridged interfaces, each bridged to a different VLAN interface, and I'd like to have a Virtualbox guest (Linux) access both bridge interfaces.

    Use of VLAN isolates bhyve host from VM [FreeNAS]

    I have a bug report filed here but have the feeling this may be upstream. The basic problem is that when bridge0 is associated with a trunked interface, then the host and VM cannot communicate with each other (they can both communicate everywhere else just fine). As an experiment I set the...

    Hello! I created bridge0 ( device with few tapX network devices ( (bridged together by bridge0) for bhyve vms. Then I created NAT (pf.conf), that solves networking via wlan0 (wifi card). Why? Because simple bridging doesn't work with wlan0/wifi interfaces (NAT works)...

    Bridging problems

    I am trying to share a single 10Gb ethernet outlet in my office between two machines by bridging across a FreeBSD server using the second port on its 10Gb card. The bridge works quite well, and the other machine gets network service. The FreeBSD server, however, does not, even though I added an...

    NetMap + Suricata = Broken Bridge?

    Howdy! I want to run Suricata in NETMAP mode on interface ix0, while bridging traffic from ix0 to ix1. The question is why does Suricata completely break the FreeBSD bridge when run in netmap mode, and more to the point, how should one configure Suricata to watch ix0 while also passing traffic...
