This happends about 2-3 times when I tried this for 10 times. This is a little strange to me. And the network is only available after the host send a ARP request through eth0, only then the network becomes available again. > Please can anyone help about this? Thanks a lot. Did you forget about the ARP queries from the other boxes asking for the ip of the box with the mac 00:11:22:33:44:55? They come from the query hosts mac and go to the broadcast (ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff), asking for the mac of ip a.b.c.d. Those get dropped with your above setup and never reaching your special host, so the other hosts do not know to which mac to send the packets. c'ya sven-haegar -- Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead. - Ben F. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe netfilter" in the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
