This patchset is the restyled, adjusted and (partly) re-worked version of the patchset that can be found in this GitHub PR https://github.com/OpenVPN/openvpn/pull/76 originally authored by Fabian Knittel.
The status of this new patchset is tracked here: https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/ticket/6#comment:5 These new patches have already gone through a first round of review by Gert and are now being posted on the mailing list for broader scrutinity. In a nutshell, this new feature allows to assign each client to a VLAN (like if it was a host plugged into a switch, with OpenVPN server being the switch). This will ensure proper isolation between clients on different VLANs. On top of that, depending on the configuration, clients can be bridged with different networks on the server side, thanks to the VLAN tagging applied to their outgoing packets (more is explained in the additional manpage content). A specific document explaining more in details how this feature can be useful in common setups is planned to be drafted after the patchset has been merged. Feedback is welcome! Regards, Antonio Quartulli (9): maddr: create helper function to populate maddr object from eth_addr VLAN: add basic VLAN tagging support maddr: export VLAN ID from client context to maddr object VLAN: filter multicast and client-to-client unicast traffic is_ipv_X: add support for parsing IP header inside a 802.1q frame VLAN: implement support for forwarding only pre-tagged VLAN packets VLAN: allow forwarding tagged and untagged packets on the server TAP device VLAN: add documentation to manpage VLAN: allow user to avoid compiling VLAN handling code configure.ac | 12 ++ doc/openvpn.8 | 99 +++++++++++- src/openvpn/Makefile.am | 4 + src/openvpn/errlevel.h | 2 + src/openvpn/mroute.c | 66 +++++--- src/openvpn/mroute.h | 13 +- src/openvpn/multi.c | 47 +++++- src/openvpn/multi.h | 2 + src/openvpn/options.c | 99 ++++++++++++ src/openvpn/options.h | 13 ++ src/openvpn/proto.c | 42 +++-- src/openvpn/proto.h | 25 +++ src/openvpn/vlan.c | 337 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ src/openvpn/vlan.h | 131 ++++++++++++++++ 14 files changed, 852 insertions(+), 40 deletions(-) create mode 100644 src/openvpn/vlan.c create mode 100644 src/openvpn/vlan.h -- 2.23.0 _______________________________________________ Openvpn-devel mailing list Openvpnemail@example.com https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/openvpn-devel
