[Firehol-support] How to allow arp broadcasts?

I'm having trouble with my firewall preventing my VPN from working.

If the firewall is off, the VPN works fine. So it's not the VPN that's broken.

I have "server accept all" and "client accept all" for the brige (br0) 
ethernet (eth0) and tap (tap0) interfaces. BUt apparently that's not enough.

Someone suggested I needed to allow arp to pass through (I guess from tap0 to 
eth0 - or else through br0) but I can't find any documentation on allowing 
arp broadcasts.

Does anyone know how to configure the firehol.conf for that?
