I'm a newbie to linux to an extent but have a need to set up a linux
bridge to do some paclet loss testing using netem. I have a PC with two
NIC cards and Fedora 6. I have created the bridge using the following
#brctl addbr mybridge
#brctl addif mybridge eth0
#brctl addif mybridge eth1
#brctl mybridge up
Physically I have two IP devices with static IP addresses connected to
the two NIC cards via cross over cables. I have tested the NIC cards in
a non bridged mode and they work fine as normal NICs. In bridged mode I
can ping the other IP device. The IP devices are actually realtime
audio over IP codec devices and they stream using RTP on UDP port 5000.
If I connect the cross over cable directly between the two codec devices
the audio is transferred fine, if I put the linux bridge between them I
get nothing but I can still ping.....
A brctl showstp shows the eth0 and eth1 are in forwarding status but
nothing is happenig. Can anyone help. Both Eth1 and 0 are set to Ip
address of 0.0.0.0
