I'm trying to use a Sparc20 w/ 3 sbus le nics as a firewall using 2.6 running ipf & bridging.
The OS crashes & takes me to dbd when I have both bridging & ipf enabled.
So I figured (w/ Art's help) that maybe I needed to set the EEPROM local-mac-address value to TRUE.
The MACs on all 3 nics are still the same, so I'm trying to assign my own MACs.
Now I'm having difficulty assigning the MACs.
When I do an ifconfig le1 ether, no matter what MAC value I use, Bad Value is returned.
I see no mention of the ether option in the ifconfig manpages.
I know "ifconfig le0 ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx" can be used on Solaris. Is there something I'm missing for OpenBSD ?
Do I really need to assign MACs to these interfaces in order to use bridging & ipf ?
Pertinent dmesg :

Thanks for your help, Han.
