Hello Lennart,

I might be wrong and Sebastian might be able to shed some light on this, BUT
isn't marz restricted to the old network stack? As far as I know it 
strips/adds the old nativenet header from outgress/ingress packets.

BTW, are you also using the old network stack? My described method works 
only for the new network stack and with ng_nativenet (:
