Salam,

I have a setup a bridge between users end and proxy server.

Users ====> BRIDGE ====> PROXY SERVER

Bridge have two lan cards, eth0 and eth1.

I have assigned an ip to bridge interface (br0) to remotely administrate it. This bridge is also acting as a DHCP server for local users.

I received this error message frequently on screen.


printk: 1 messages suppressed
eth1: received packets with own address as source address.


and the messages goes on , printk number increases like 1 msg suppresse, 2 3 4 and so on.

What actually it is and How to solve this problem?
