Re: Disable mac address learning
Hi,Yes that's wat i thought but readingÂhttp://www.linuxfoundation.org/collaborate/workgroups/networking/bridge#Showing_devices_in_a_bridgeÂtells me that if i set aging time to 0, it will makes all entry permanent.
The aging time is the number of seconds a MAC address will bekept in the forwarding database after having received a packetfrom this MAC address.The entries in the forwarding database are periodically timed outto ensure they won't stay around forever.Normally there should be no need to modify this parameter,but it can be changed with (time is in seconds).# brctl setageing bridgename timeSetting ageing time to zero makes all entries permanent.My bad i did not take time to test it.Thanks for your answer i will try this!On Sat, Nov 27, 2010 at 5:16 PM, Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote:
