Sub_title: Need to bridge eth0 and tap0

I am looking to bridge eth0 and tap0. Tap0 is used by an emulator running under Puppy.
I have found instructions for doing this in another forum (http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=27840&sid=0cbff00acfaea8d349bedf09765d3120). It was said that the kernel llc modules were missing. They were provided on that post, but this related to Puppy 3. The modules provided will not load under Puppy 4.

Does anyone have the llc modules for puppy 4?

Alternatively I am using the built in firewall's internet connection sharing to route traffic between the two networks eth0 and tap0. However some file sharing software running on the emulator on tap0 will not work. I am lead to believe this is because broadcasts are not being forwarded between the two networks. The file sharing software uses UDP. Anyone know how to forward broadcasts?

Hi sa110_mk
I found this from forum member 'claude' http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=36909&sid=90844f1788d0c4dda1ddbc84ed1f535e and see that he has what we want installed on his "PC2 is running Skinny 4.0 with bridge-utils-1.2 installed (including llc module) "
I need it too to network an old box to my wireless lan thru my puppy machine running 412.
I wonder if skinny 4 has it or claude compiled it? I have seen 'bridge-utils' on the web but the llc module is kernel specific. I'll search more and see if I can come up with something. Wink
