Thanks for your reply, but it is not exactly what I am looking for...
I have two rules, that enable the bridging between two of my
interfaces. When I receive IP or VLAN, these packets are droped by the
broute table.
I tried to add the rule :
ebtables -A FORWARD --ulog-nlgroup 5 -j DROP

But it seems  to send me all packets, when I am listening with a
netlink socket...
I have for example an interface connected the internet, that receives
packets, and these packets are received by my netlink socket...
I think I have to tell the Forward rule that I only want the packets
from my eth2 interface (which is the one where I receive my VLAN
packets) ?

Thanks again.
Best Regards,
