1.2.3 to 2.0 Bridge Problem

  • We have a system that was working perfectly on 1.2.3 running a bridge with 2 NICS (LAN and WAN).  After upgrading internet access was functional for computers behind the firewall but webservers were not able to respond to requests coming from the outside.

    In the logs the error 'Kernel: arpresolve: can't allocate llinfo for (gateway IP address)' comes up continually.

    In the admin>System Tunables I can change the net.link.bridge_pfil_member to zero and the webservers will respond to requests but then it does not appear any of the rules are filtering as they should.

    I have read a number of articles on bridging in 2.0 but cant seem to get this resolved.  Any help is much apprecitated.
