I have some questions about bridging interfaces.. I can't seem to find the answer or am still unsure of the answers.
1a) I have 3 wireless interfaces bridged, and I want them set to arp=reply-only, do I: set this on all three interfaces and / or the bridge?
1b) If I make a bridge, should I deal with those interfaces only thru the bridge interface from then on out?
2) For firewall filtering these interfaces, should I do this under bridge filtering or the normal ip filtering? (So obvious, I figure, but could you use either one for bridges?)
3) If I enable STP on a bridge, and there happens to be a loop as a result of one of our customers, wouldn't STP disable the port that the loop is coming from? Or would it fix the problem somehow?
4) Would the wireless clients on this bridge see the MAC address of the bridge, or the MAC of the wireless card - if say, I had one IP address per wireless interface. (Probably the MAC of the wireless card if I placed an IP on a wireless interface, and otherwise, the MAC of the bridge if I placed an IP on the bridge?)
