VLAN configuration on Ubuntu 12.04 Desktop

view story

http://askubuntu.com – What is the correct way of configuring virtual LAN interfaces (hopefully without messing up Network Manager) on Ubuntu 12.04 Desktop? Simply adding the interface to /etc/network/interfaces seems to cause Network Manager some confusion: auto vlan500 iface vlan500 inet static ... ... vlan_raw_device eth1 Is there a better way of doing it? update: I updated /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf with a no-auto-default clause, and set managed=false in the [ifupdown] section: [main] plugins=ifupdown,keyfile dns=dnsmasq no-auto-default=6C:FD:12:34:56:78, [ifupdown] managed=false This ke (HowTos)
