Bridging in linux
I have a router with ip 192.168.1.254 (dchp enabled)
I have a working debian linux server ip 192.168.1.112 with two ethernet nics
There are also several windows clients in the network.
All this is connected with the router trough a harware switch.
Problem : people on the network who dont respect the download volume.
I want to put the linux server between the router and the switch so i can monitor traffic per ip.
I made a bridge
#brctrl addbr gbridge
#brctrl gbridge addif eth0
#brctrl gbridge addif eth1
#ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0
#ifconfig eth1 0.0.0.0
#ifconfig gbridge 192.168.1.112 netmask 255.255.255.255 broadcast 192.168.1.255 up
The connections on the local network are working.
But the connection to my router is not working.
What am i doing wrong?
Is it possible that there is no bridging possible between an 10Mbps nic and a 100Mbps nic.
