Hi,
We configure a slack with a transparent bridge, but IPTABLES dont block traffic passing throught the bridge.

Are there any known problem to use iptables in a transparente bridge?  Any solution for this problem?

Please, it's urgent.


Regards,
Luiz

i'm not sure if I understand exactly what the problem is that you are seeking help with, but by design a transparent bridge will broadcast to all connected ports any frames that it does not recognize an internal address associated with it.  Therefore, the ip table will not cause the bridge to block any traffic, rather quite the opposite.  Not sure if this is any help...

I already solve the problem.

Both bridge interfaces does not have an IP address and the iptables is not capable to "see" this traffic.

I installed ebtables (ebtables.sourceforge.net) and the probles was solved.
