Bridge Firewall

Wed Jan 30, 2013 5:11 pm

Hi All,
I'm trying to configure a layer 2 firewall on RB1100.
While everything is working well beside that I have to open rules both way in order to accomplish connection.
For example.

Port 1 connected to a pc 192.168.0.1
Port 2 connected to a pc 192.168.0.2
Port 1 and 2 are bridge1

In order to ping from pc to pc i have to create two firewall rules,

1. Allow from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.2
2. Allow from 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.1

Is this a normal while using firewall over bridge?

Is there anything that I'm missing here?

Many thanks

No, everything is automatically allowed unless it is specifically dropped.
