First bash at setting a Bridge up.
All seems to be going ok, however my bridge is set up, the Linux box can ping www sites, the modem router and the Windows machine. The Box is bridging between Windows and the modem router.
Problem: The windows machine can ping the router, Linux and google's IP addy, however can not ping using google.com or do anything more exiting!
Windows machine cannot seem to renew IP address from router either, i have done the following on my Linux box:
# yum install bridge-utils bridge-utils-devel
Ran ok and Updated.
Then configured the bridge: all interfaces were down before starting
--Comments are so you can all let me know if i am misunderstanding what i am doing
# ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0 (Setting IP addy)
# ifconfig eth1 0.0.0.0
# brctl addbr Home (Bridge name)
# brctl addif Home eth0 (Adding interface)
# brctl addif Home eth1
# dhclient Home (Allowing it to turn off the 30 sec delay for DHCP)
# ifconfig Home up (Brining interface up)
Linux was getting an IP addy assigned from the Router etc.
Sorry for the Full blown Rant, just not sure how much info everyone might need
Any help much appreciated!
