I had setup my bridge (br0) as below: -
ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0
ifconfig eth5 0.0.0.0
brctl addbr br0
brctl addif br0 eth0
brctl addif br0 eth5
brctl stp br0 on
Once I connect both the interface (eth0 and eth5) to my network. I
can't ping to my router (connect to eth0) or ping to my other IP
addresses (connect to eth5). I check around and found out some messages
pops up in /var/log/syslog file as below: -
Jan 2 10:44:22 fw01 kernel: ipt_tcpmss_target: bad length (64 bytes)
Jan 2 10:44:32 fw01 last message repeated 11 times
Jan 2 12:27:08 fw01 kernel: Neighbour table overflow.
Jan 2 12:27:11 fw01 last message repeated 9 times
Jan 2 12:27:13 fw01 kernel: NET: 10 messages suppressed.
Jan 2 12:27:13 fw01 kernel: Neighbour table overflow.
Jan 2 12:27:18 fw01 kernel: NET: 27 messages suppressed.
Jan 2 12:27:18 fw01 kernel: Neighbour table overflow.
Once I disconnect the cable from the eth5 interface, I can ping to my
router. I try to reconnect the cable back to the eth5 interface and run
a ping to my router. As the result, I can't ping the router and the
similar messages pops up in the /var/log/syslog file.
How can I resolve this issue?
