I have two external modems and would like to do a
LAN to LAN connection that bridges ethernet frames 
(I need IP and IPX on both ends and it needs to look like 
one big LAN, read: no NAT).  Can anyone point me in the 
direction I need to go to get this working under 
FreeBSD (3.2 or 3.3)?  I've seen a Bridging-HOWTO for 
Linux that discusses the program BRCFG in applications for
NIC-to-NIC bridging, but I don't see anything about 
NIC-to-serial device bridging.

One other thing: does the linux program brcfg work under 
FreeBSD's linux emulation?
