"If you want to build a real Ethernet bridge (Layer 2 bridge) on Mac OS X, answer is, you simply can't without third-party software. That's just the way it is, there is nothing in the kernel or in userspace to do this.

The only software I know capable of doing this is IPNetRouterX, which is not free. Never tried it myself."
