Hello Marko, thanks for your response. First of all: I looked at "imunes". From the first glimpse it looks great! Something really usefull; I regret not having a port for this tool or the chance to package it via poudriere. The problems I faced seem to be related to a bug Olivier Cochard-Labbe pointed me at: https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=176671 Checking the MAC of the epairs created revealed, that either doubles or even more occur on the host side of the epair (in my case, all the b-parts of an epair), or, if there is nothing irregular, then the a-parts (owned by the VIMAGE jail) have same MAC. The more jails I create, the more ambiguous MACs are present. It is the first time I ran into a more complex network topology and thanks for the hint using netgraph.
