manually setting up a bridge tap into a network

Posted 05-07-2011 at 05:01 AM by neonsignal

The following stanzas are for /etc/network/interfaces. They set up a bridge tap into the network (which I originally used for virtual machines, though most of the VM managers set this up automatically now).

First, we create a bridge:
Code:
iface br0 inet static
   address 192.168.1.2
   netmask 255.255.255.0

manually setting up WPA for wireless interfaces

Posted 05-06-2011 at 05:26 AM by neonsignal

Since the default wireless interface is typically wlan0, it can be useful to edit /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules to set the interface name.

The wireless supplicant daemon is also required:
Code:
apt-get install wpasupplicant
The wpasupplicant entries are stored in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf. Entries can be added manually, or using:
Code:
wpa_passphrase ssid key >>/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

Edit /etc/network/interfaces. Typical parameters are address, netmask, network, broadcast, gateway, dns-nameservers. For wireless networks, there is also wireless-essid and wireless-key.
