I am trying to get two machines on the LAN share the same IP address  
assigned by DHCP server by using the bridge interface in rc.conf. But  
I have encountered two problems here.

First, the B machine (the one that gets the same IP address as the  
main A machine) has no problem accessing the Internet. The A machine,  
however, seems to have DNS problems as it cannot resolve any addresses.

And the second problem I've faced is that I cannot figure out how to  
use SSH to connect to the A machine from the B machine if they both  
share the same IP address. Or is there a better way to have that kind  
of remote access?

Warm thank you for all the hints.
