I committed a fix to this in the multiqueue driver  during BSDCan, haven't merged it back into HEAD yet. I'll do that in a couple of days. Unless you have multiple MAC unicast and/or multicast addresses configured on an interface, the error is harmless (for QEMU, which AFAIK, is the only implementation that supports this feature).  http://svnweb.freebsd.org/base?view=revision&revision=250802 > Julian > > On 05/23/2013 02:00 PM, Julian Stecklina wrote: > > Hello, > > > > I just compiled qemu 1.5.0 and noticed that virtio network (on CURRENT as > > of today) seems to have problems updating the MAC filter table: > > > > vtnet0: error setting host MAC filter table > > > > As far as I understand, if_vtnet.c does the following in > > vtnet_rx_filter_mac.
