Networking :: Setup A Bridge Using Bridge-utils Within /etc/network/interfaces?
Dec 8, 2008
I want to set up a bridge using bridge-utils within /etc/network/interfaces like is shown here in this guide: [URL] The problem is that, at the same time, I want eth0 to have a specific static IP address. Right now I have a configuration for eth0. This guide tells me that I should not configure eth0 outside of the br0 configuration.
Im trying to setup multiple domU through the default bridge setup. I am able to access only one of them through the network at a time. If you ping one of the domU it works perfectly but you cannot ping any of the others until you stop pinging the one and even then it takes a bit before you can. Ive looked around for a while and seen similar problems but nothing ever seems quite the same. Im probably missing something really stupid. Or is this the way the bridge is supposed to behave? Do i need to use a routed virtual network?
I am using vnuml to test a network project. I have one Ethernet card on my ubuntu 9.10( eth0) with network 10.1.0.0/16, and creating a tap0 with subnet 10.4.0.0/16. Now the problem is how to work them together, such that packets from one interface goes to other one?
I've currently got a Xen box with 3 Virtual machines on it, in a routed setup. I'd like to put them all on a private internal network as well, which I'm assuming I'd do with a dummy network card and a xen bridge, but I can't find any information about setting up the xen Bridging setup on top of the existing network-route instlal.
Now doing some research about performance of Linux switch. I'll start with basic structure of my system: PC1 is connected to PC2 - both have 1 NIC so not much to add.PC2 eth0 is divided in VLAN`s as far as maximum of 4094. Every VLAN has it's own switch (bridge). On PC1 when I run a test I just make VLAN/configure IP address and stream data to IP that's configured for that bridge on PC2.But now I want to add one more interface to each bridge, so I could stream from PC1 through bridge to Virtual interface (just an endpoint out of bridge). I could possibly add one more computer, physical interface to PC1 and make it work, but is there any way to make this work with virtual interfaces, like tun or something? Making just a simple tun interface and adding it to bridge, as you understand, doesn't do the trick, I need some kind of other endpoint that /virtually/ connects to tun interface. Maybe someone has made some kind of script or something? Using Iperf for my tests.
I tried google but without success. I have a small home network and one computer has to work as a bridge (comp1), it connects to the internet through wlan and is connected with cable to other computer (comp2), I would like to to make that second computer member of a local network with internet access.I was trying this:
I'm trying to setup a Centos box to act as a backup server for our intranet between stores. I have two interfaces in it, the first one is currently connected to my local network and is using dhcp to get its ip address and such, the second one is set to a static ip address and is connected to an independent network that just has a DigiBoard Portserver hooked to it and no connection to the regular network. What I am doing is using ssh to portforward the telnet port on this box to the main server so when you telnet into the box from the second interface using the portserver you get connected to the main server.
I plan on using this over DSL lines as a backup when our main dervice goes out to allow the portservers at the remote locations to seemlessly connect to the main server by just moving the network cable from the local net to the backup server. My problem is that when I have the everything working I am able to ping the second interface ip address from the normal network even though the secondary card does not in anyway externally connect to the network, this is a problem.
Eventually I want to duplicate the main server address so that the normal portservers and other terminals on the remote site will not have to be reconfigured to access the backup server. All I want is to be able to tell the managers is to switch a cable while the main connection is down and not have to manage a bunch of config files to get the store back up. Right now if I duplicate the main server ip address and it is accessible through the first interface I'm guessing I'll see all kinds of problems relating to duplicate ip addresses on the network. I've tried some routing and iptable stuff but I'm not real familiar with either so I had no luck. Is there someway to block the internal connection between the two interfaces so the only thing that sees the duplicate ip address is the second interface?
my both linux and windows has 2 network cards each.
basicaly it is vLan cards, each server has 2 network cards. one to main switch and one to local IP.
data will be going like below:
internet ----------------> eth0 --> linux --> eth1 ----------------> Windows.
i have vLans on both servers. And i need cross connection setup. And use linux in bridg mode / cross connection .
actualy i want to use Iptable rules to filter bad packets and forward good packets to windows. i have scripts how to forward packets to windows. but the problem is i dont know how to setup both servers in this topology. and how to make linux as bridge.
All it should be in transparent mode. Not in NAT mode.
I have an adsl modem acting as a bridge to my router my setup was working well for more than year now , but then the internet went slow . I set the modem back to PPPoE the problem was with the DNS server of the ISP so using ifup i set the dns t 22.214.171.124 (google) the connection is back , but when i set the modem back as a bridge slow internet does the router know that my dns is 126.96.36.199 or i should set the dns on the router ? I can't see an option to set the dns on the router ( i just enter my username and password from the isp to use PPPoE mode ) by the way i called the isp support they kept telling me to restart , i told them i did but i never restarted my pc . I'm sure if i tell them i'm running linux they will blame the os !
I have installed CentOs 5.4 for Snort sensor , on the location where i intend to place the Snort sensor to listen for internal firewall leg (LAN) the switch doesn't support port mirror so i would like to create with 2 nic's bridge and pass trough the firewall internal leg my question how do i set such configuration.
The reason for this is I can connect to the internet on my ps3 through my laptop, and I can stream from my laptop to ps3 through wired connection. This works fine in windows 7 all I had to do was right click bridge connections. As I dual boot I don't want to have to make any changes to the settings on the ps3.
My interfaces are: eth0 - wired wlan0 - wireless
I installed bridge-utils and created a bridge and added both eth0 and wlan0 to it. However I could not get it to work. I have also tried internet sharing through network manager and firestarter.
I setup a network bridge on pc A, with windows 7 installed on it, using windows default bridging tool. I connected computer B to computer A and Im trying to connect to the internet through the network bridge on computer A. Computer B (client) has two OS's installed, win XP and linux(tried with different distributions, didnt work). On windows XP everything is working, when i try to ping the router (after computer A) it also responds. On linux system nothing is working, and im not quite sure why.
I set up linux to receive IP adress from DHCP, which is router in this case (behind computer A), same way windows XP was configured. I decided to ask here, because I couldn't find anything on the net. My guess is windows-made bridge supports only windows-OS's but that would be kind of strange (its just a software bridge).
Internet <---> Router <---> Debian server <---> Windows PC
I want the server and PC to both have internet access, and I want to be able to forward ports from the router to the server. I know how to configure the server to give the PC internet access, but how would I assign an IP address to the server and give it internet access? I have used a very similar setup a few years ago, but I can't remember how to do this.
I am a (somewhat) newbie to Linux (but have an extensive Windows background), and I have just installed Debian Squeeze in an old EeePc 701 4G using the netinst version only with the following packages:
Now I would like to install Debian in my main laptop, but I think it won't be able to connect to any wireless networks during setup and before installing firmware-brcm80211 and wireless-tools (its wireless card is a Broadcom 43224AG). That being, and to avoid connecting the computer directly to the router (it is not easy), I would like to bridge the EeePc's wireless connection to my laptop using a cable. I tried using the instructions found at the Debian Wiki, but I couldn't set it up properly.
I'm following this guide [URL]. I am trying to use a bridge to vpn from work to home.
/etc/network/interfaces # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface auto br0 iface br0 inet dhcp bridge_ports eth0
iface eth0 inet manual up ifconfig $IFACE 0.0.0.0 up up ip link set $IFACE promisc on down ip link set $IFACE promisc off down ifconfig $IFACE down
I am forced to use dhcp because of my router. (although it is a static lease) I think this is where I am hung up. Everything else seems to be working properly though. I have a windows client connecting but is limited to the server serving out openvpn. (192.168.1.21) In other words it is not functioning as a bridged vpn service.
ifconfig openvpn server.conf local 192.168.1.21 port 1199 proto udp dev tap0 up "/etc/openvpn/up.sh br0" down "/etc/openvpn/down.sh br0" ca ca.crt cert server.crt key server.key # This file should be kept secret dh dh1024.pem ifconfig-pool-persist ipp.txt server-bridge 192.168.1.21 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.100 192.168.1.200 keepalive 10 120 tls-auth ta.key 0 # This file is secret comp-lzo user nobody group nogroup persist-key persist-tun status openvpn-status.log verb 3
First of all I have a Ethernet cable from the wall to my desktop then I have a Ethernet cable from my desktop to my laptop. Before I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04 I was using Ubuntu 10.10 and I found a tutorial to make this network bridge work by changing settings in the Devices - Network Tools. I need to make this bridge work again and i totally forgot how and I can't find the tutorial.
I'm on opensuse 11.4 (11.3 won't work with my monitor).
My computer gets internet through wireless and I want to share that internet through its ethernet port. So far I've tried using Knetworkmanager to create a network bridge between my wireless and wired connections. I created a new wired connection and shared it using the ip address settings. I was able to get both connections active, but the device hooked up via ethernet had no internet connectivity.
I also tried this command: echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
but another test resulted in the same fashion (no internet on wired). I believe anything I add to /proc should have an immediate effect, correct?
I'm new to this forum site and I was wondering how can I bridge a network between the eth0 and wlan0 connections?my eth0 NIC is a RealTek RTL8111B 10/100/1000 Ethernet Card (OnBoard) and my wlan0 NIC is a RealTek RTL8187B 802.11b/g WiFi USB Adapter Card.Are there any utilities, such as bridge-utils that I can use, except for Firestarter since Firestarter states that the eth0 connection is not established, or do I right-click on the network icon and select Edit Connections and go to Auto eth0 and under the IPv4 Address setting and select Shared to other computers and run a live connection there?The main reason is that I need an Internet connection for my Xbox 360, which is connected to my Linksys WRT54G 802.11b/g Wireless Router, that has DD-WRT firmware installed and 4 WiFi hotspots for any wireless device, such as my PSP, DS, DS Lite, Wii, Laptop(s), my brother's PC (needs a WiFi card), and my dad's PC (needs either a WiFi card or an Internet connection from my brother's computer to my dad's PC)
Here are my Computer Specs: ECS nForce6m-a Motherboard 2GB DDR-800 PC6400 Memory
I have two ethernet NIC's on my debian server. One built-in Realtek [eth0] (attached to internet), and a PCI Nvidia ethernet card [eth1] (attached to my Win7 netbook). I used this guide to setup the bridge: url. It worked when I was behind a router. But when I moved the computer in front of the router, to direct connect to the internet, the internet stopped functioning on any device that I plug into my Nvidia NIC. The name of my bridge is 'br0'. Does anyone know how to fix it, so I can route the internet to my second NIC?
My Win7 netbook displays this at an 'ipconfig' command: Windows IP Configuration

I've successfully install kvm with private network (nat) up running. I want to switch the kvm network using bridge mode (or host-interface), but do not success. env: nic iwl4965/ kernel 188.8.131.52/ debian etch upgrade to lenny/ kvm 0.9.1/ hardware hp 6910p The doc I follow up is at [URL] The way how i set it up is to modify /etc/network/interfaces by adding following section to enable br0
However, the problem is the guest os, which starts with -hda k1.img, can not access to the internet. Is there any step I miss? or it is because wireless does not support bridge (I've heard doc says that wireless does not support wireless bridge)?
I'm toying around with ubuntu + LTSP. I've managed to get the computers to boot off the network card "eth0". "eth1" is facing the internet. How would I go about the process to bridge the connections so the ltsp clients can access the net?
Using Fedora 10, can anyone tell me how to setup the network scripts to create two network interfaces for vlan x and y. Both interfaces should obtain an ip from dhcp and both interfaces should run over eth0.
