Thank you Koshibe-san for your reply. I looked up switch loops in order to understand your insight. Based on the configuration of hostname.switch0, I do not think there is a loop in the virtual switch. However, I may be wrong since I am not good at networks. $ cat /etc/hostname.switch0 add em0 up Here, em0 is the egress interface connected to the dedicated/bare-metal machine provider's network. This provider's network is beyond my control. As such, there might be a loop in the provider's network. Is there a way that I can verify if there is a loop in the network? If it helps in any way, a bridge works on the same network. $ cat /etc/hostname.bridge0 add em0 Regards, ab ---------|---------|---------|---------|---------|---------|---------|--
