A bridged network is an extension of a network(same subnet, 172.17.x.x/16)no routing is involved.

If your trying to connect a system from a remote network to the bridged ethernet network, you won't need to make that system multihomed if your system resides on the same subnet as the router that connects your network to the remote bridged network.

Multihoming just refers to a server that has two (or more) NICs connected to different subnets.

If you're asking what I think you're asking, the answer is hardware dependent but basically, the server-to-remote router link would be a subnet over which the bridged traffic would travel. Sort of like a VPN tunnel, maybe...

One of the server NICs would have the internal network address and the second would have an IP address that would create a subnet with the remote router.

Is this a goodstart?
