Bridging Ethernet interfaces in Ubuntu 12.04
From Zam Wiki
If you searching tutorial on how to create bridged interface, maybe you'll refer to Ubuntu documentation. Honestly, it's hard. Maybe it works. But in my case, it doesn't.
Nevermind, here I give you guide on how to do it in easier way.
- First, install bridge-utils:
sudo apt-get install bridge-utils
It will create new interface called br0
- Second, we bridge the interface that we want:
sudo brctl addbr br0 sudo brctl addif br0 eth0 eth1
- You can restart you interface by this command:
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
- You also can setup bridged interface automatically on boot by adding this to /etc/network/interfaces:
auto br0 iface br0 inet static address 192.168.1.10 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255 gateway 192.168.1.1 bridge_ports eth0 eth1
The important parameter is bridge_ports, which assign the ethernet port to bridge interface.
