Hello! I've just built myself a VPN-network for testing bridge STP. I installed 3 FreeBSD boxes (2 FreeBSD-6.2 and 1 FreeBSD-6.1) and connected all of them with OpenVPN with TAP-bridging: * 1st box is OpenVPN server only and has tap0 bridged with its inner interface (192.168.1.1). * 2nd box is OpenVPN client only and has tap0 and tap1 bridged with its inner interface (192.168.2.1). * 3rd box is both OpenVPN client and server and has also bridged tap0, tap1 and its inner interface (192.168.3.1).
So now the question is on which interfaces should I enable STP in such setup? I tried enabling it on all interfaces (well, besides the external ones ;) like this: ===== ifconfig bridge0 create addm tap0 stp tap0 addm sk0 stp sk0 addm tap1 stp tap1 up ===== But after doing so, all the interfaces just stay disabled, a'la: ===== bridge0: flags=28143<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,PROMISC,MULTICAST,PPROMISC> mtu 1500 ether ac:de:48:46:d3:ef priority 32768 hellotime 2 fwddelay 15 maxage 20 member: tap0 flags=7<LEARNING,DISCOVER,STP> port 7 priority 128 path cost 55 disabled member: tap1 flags=7<LEARNING,DISCOVER,STP> port 9 priority 128 path cost 55 disabled member: sk0 flags=7<LEARNING,DISCOVER,STP> port 1 priority 128 path cost 55 disabled ===== Am I doing smth wrong? -- Silver -- View this message in context: http://www.nabble.com/enabling-if_bridge-STP-tf4954594.html#a14188023 Sent from the freebsd-questions mailing list archive at Nabble.com. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
