Hello,
I am trying to understand the enhanced L2 bridged mode provided by
sonicwall. Here is my network scenario:
LAN Trusted X0 X2 X3 X5
WAN Untrusted X1
DMZ Public X4

X1: IP: 192.168.13.83/20 with gateway at 192.168.13.25/20
X0 (primary iface) bridged to X2 (secondary iface). The bridge-pair
shares an IP (10.20.20.83/24) for management and for accessing the
device.

I am able to surf the INTERNET as I have not set any specific filters.
Additionally in the Firewall->Access Rules I have set the LAN-WAN and
the WAN-LAN rules to accept all. I am basically trying to ping the WAN
interface from my box which is at 10.20.20.85/24 with its gateway set
to 10.20.20.83/24. I am using the packet monitor to monitor all ICMP
packets with the SRC ip address of 10.20.20.85 and dst IP of
192.168.13.83 but I can't see nothing in the packet monitor. Then I
remove the ICMP restriction in the configuration of the packet
monitor. Now what I see looks like garbage to me but I sure think it
says something which I as a relative newbie might not be aware of. I
am attaching a txt of the packet capture. I am keen to hear from you
people about what may be wrong here.

Heres the TXT of the capture:
Code:

--File Index : 1.--
--18 packets captured.--

Lastly, all the interfaces of the Sonicwall device has the same
hardware address which comes as a surprise to me. Aren't all
interfaces supposed to have different MAC addresses? Or has some kind
of Bonding been applied inside of the device? IS there a way to
configure this?
