comment How to set up internal routing between virtual interfaces and real ethernet interface (Linux)
Thank you syneticon-dj! Didn't think that my fix is a "magical" one, just a fix that works. I'm using the macvlan option as the simplest (I'm aware of..) way to create a virtual interface that I can set its MAC address and get an IP address for it. Do you have another, better way (can be more complex, if it's better...)?

The virtual interface I create is already "coupled" with the real Ethernet interface, so I guess they are already "bridged", no? Would you care, please, to explain the difference?

Thanks Nils! I wasn't aware of such an option. Doesn't adding a macvlan type of interface (as I do) the same as adding a layer2 device, like a bridge-device? BTW, the IP address for the virtual NIC is obtained through DHCP, by invoking a DHCP client process on the interface - Will this work with a bridge-device as well?

Each SNMP agent should be identified, by the MIB-browser, as having a distinct different IP address. This is mandatory by the spec I'm following.
