Re:Re: brouter configuration (setup 1b) still can't work

Ok, all switch must support ivl.
Proxy arp is suit for the environment, box B and box C should not see each other, I will use ebtables to drop flow between them just as setup 1b done; the main problem for a svl switch is mac address of br0 appeared in every vlan.
What's the side effect of mac-address masquerading?
Many thanks for your patience.

This means you do not understand the real issue here :-)

It's end of life, and with only a 3.2Gb/s I doubt it would do
IVL. Only the latest catalyst release added 802.1Q. And seeing
your problems you definitely have SVL :-(.

So you have the following choices:
- Buy a new expensive switch (>10000 euro for an IVL if I am correct)
- Buy a wrt device (around 50 euro's), and put you router in an
  even numbered vlan, and your hosts in an odd numbered vlan.
- Do mac-address masquerading (never done it)
- Do proxy-arp and use routed networks on your router. Using
  proxy-arp, the hosts don't have to know that they don't see
  Proxy-arp is described in

The problem: One host does an arp. This means the bridge on the
router *must* forward that packet, and will do so exactly.
Since the switch was never build to think in seperate vlans, it
will see the mac-address move from the host-port to the router
port. Any new traffic destined for that host will go to the
router port. The router will bridge it further, and the switch
will drop it, since the mac-address is only known at the port of
the router.
SVL is the same as having a normal switch: you only have a
mac-address->port lookup, except that traffic is filtered on vlan
In IVL, you have an independent vlan+mac-address->port lookup.
