The idea was to connect: vmbr0 --> LAN vmbr1 --> LAN vmbr2 --> WAN vmbr3

Thanks for your responsed Flavio.

I assigned the same network to
vmbr1, vmbr2 and vmbr3 for the testing. Instead, I configured de vmbr2
and vmbr3 with WAN IP addresses and the pings OK.

You can do it
internally, but a physical card or vmbr3 vmbr2 that has no cable
connected, it should not return the ICMP. You agree with that?

way, I do not think he is doing well.

Any suggestions¿??
