PF causing watchdog timeout errors in the members of a transparent FW bridge



  • Hi guys, I'm having trouble with watchdog timeout - resitting to configure a transparent firewall. Use this server between the core switch (catalyst) and my core router (cisco). When I configure the bridge with the options net.link.bridge.pfil_member: 1 and net.link.bridge.pfil_bridge: 1, the system works properly, but use rules both in members and in bridges is complex, the right would be to use only the bridge interface correct? When I turn off the option net.link.bridge.pfil_member: 0, the interface connected to the core switch begins to fall again and again with the following error:

    bce0: / usr / pfSensesrc / src / sys / dev / bce / if_bce.c (7273): Watchdog timeout occurred, resetting!
    bce0: link state changed to DOWN
    bce0: link state changed to UP
    bce0: / usr / pfSensesrc / src / sys / dev / bce / if_bce.c (7273): Watchdog timeout occurred, resetting!
    bce0: link state changed to DOWN
    bce0: link state changed to UP
    bce0: / usr / pfSensesrc / src / sys / dev / bce / if_bce.c (7273): Watchdog timeout occurred, resetting!

    I tried with other NICs as Realtek and Intel PRO 1000MT dual port and the same thing happens, what could be this problem? I would only use net.link.bridge.pfil_bridge: 1 and net.link.bridge.pfil_member: 0 because it is simpler.
