Hi, I did a bridge with kernel 2.4.34 and two intel e1000 network cards.

I setup the bridge with:

     /usr/sbin/brctl addbr br0
     /usr/sbin/brctl addif br0 eth0
     /usr/sbin/brctl addif br0 eth1
     /sbin/ifconfig eth0 promisc
     /sbin/ifconfig eth1 promisc
     /sbin/ifconfig br0 up

My configuration is:


but my problem is that it always passes all traffic, no matter if I  
set FOWARD iptables chain to DROP:
iptables -P FORWARD DROP

When I do this the all traffic and protocols continue passing.
Any idea why?
