brctl problem: broadcast doesn't get through

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Hi,

I'm creating a bridge, and then add to it two tap interfaces. No 
physical interface is added to the bridge. These are the commands:

brctl addbr test
ip tuntap add mode tap tap0
ip tuntap add mode tap tap1
ifconfig test up
ifconfig tap0 up
ifconfig tap1 up
brctl addif test tap0
brctl addif test tap1

The problem is that the bridge doesn't seem to work correctly. I sent 
through tap0 some broadcast frames (WOL frames), and they didn't reach 
tap1. I was sending packets with:

etherwake -b -i tap0 00:00:00:00:00:00

The tshark command for tap0 showed the frames being sent with tap0, 
but another tshark for tap1 didn't show them.

Then I added to tap0 the IP address 192.168.10.1/24, and did:

arping 192.168.1.2

I saw ARP request broadcast frames on tap0, but they didn't reach tap1.

This is the output of ifconfig for test, tap0, and tap1 interfaces:

root@computer:~# ifconfig test

The output of the brctl:

root@computer:~# brctl show

The output of route:

root@computer:/home/iszczesniak# route -n

0.0.0.0 192.168.2.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth1

What am I doing wrong?


Thanks,
