bridged network

I have Soekris single board communication embedded computers which is optimized for low power and network usage. The server has four Ethernet ports. How do I setup IPv4 software bridge using OpenBSD operating systems so that the rest of four ports act as a network switch?

With bridged networking you can share actual network device with KVM machines. This is required for servers with multiple network cards and gives you good performance. You can choose to put multiple segments into one bridged network or to divide it into different networks interconnected by routers.
