Creating a Simple pfSense Bridge

Bridges are bad, mkay? A good rule of thumb is switch when you can, bridge only if you must. You will generally find little support for bridging multiple wired interfaces to create a "switch." The pfSenseĀ® software is not a switch. Buy a switch. Switches have custom hardware and ASICs to forward frames between ports. On pfSense this is all done in software.
