Another possibility is that the interface is over configured I would usually
use it as
and on a 2.4 host I normally use the tuntap rather than ethertap
The reason is that the extra options are for expert use and could be
preventing the automatic configuration of the device because the software is
assuming that you know exactly what you are doing and so does not do
You might find it be useful to use the most current version of the kernel
patch and uml utilities

You appear to have some kind of firewalling getting in the way.
Probably the best way to track it down is to find the closest box on the
net that's giving you troubles and tcpdump each interface between the UML
and it until you figure out where the packets are disappearing. Then stare
at iptables on that box until you figure out why it's dropping your packets.
