Is setting mac address setting in the bridge gui broken?



  • I'm using pfsense version 2.4.3-RELEASE-p1 (amd64) and I have setup a bridge for the LAN side. But for some reason, when I have a valid fictitious mac address in the setting for the bridge GUI(interface > bridge0 > MAC Address), it won't take that. Every time I rebooted, I keep getting random mac address. Is this menu setting broken or am I doing something wrong? or is there a workaround?



  • You can set up your system to boot with a bridge. This works well, but does disable network manager so may not be best for desktops. You can also create a bridge on demand. This allows network manager to stay, but you have to remember to start the bridge before starting the VMs which use it. (Autostarted VMs can not use this

    There is an open bug for this: https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/8138
