view story

http://serverfault.com – I have 2 addresses one on eth0 one on eth0.1. eth0.1 was created like this: ip link add link eth0 name eth0.1 type macvlan dhclient eth0.1 does not get an address, even though eth0.1 does even after assigning the IP manually, I cannot ping between eth0 and eth0.1 I tried Brigding: # brctl addbr bridge # brctl addif eth0 bridge # brctl addif bridge eth0 # brctl addif bridge eth0.1 # brctl show bridge name bridge id STP enabled interfaces bridge 8000.080027b37d2f no eth0 eth0.1 # bridge showmacs bridge port no mac addr is local? ageing tim (HowTos)
