Configuring Ethernet bridge!
I am using 3 machines in a LAN connected through a hub. My intention is to have a end-to-end connection between 2 machines so that I can control delay/loss rate. For that purpose, I am using a 3rd machine with 2 NIC and intend to use a bridge and installing Dummynet in this machine to control the traffic between the other 2 machines.
I have successfully installed Dummynet in the bridge machine. Now I require to configure Ethernet bridge in the machine.
What is the process? Do I need a kernel compilation or can be done without it?
I read somewhere that recent kernels can be configured without recompilation.
I am using Mandriva 2010 with 220.127.116.11-desktop-1mnb kernel.
Your help is highly appreciated!
