DHCP and Firewall Rules on a bridged interface



  • Hi. I bridged the WLAN (wifi) with the LAN so the wireless devices can access the wired devices on the LAN. Now I have an extra interface called BRIDGE. I have two questions now.

    1. Where do I enable the DHCP server (LAN, WLAN, or BRIDGE interface)?

    2. On which interface do I set the firewall rules? I have a lot of rules set up on the LAN interface already.



  • 1. Bridge
    2. Bridge

    Also check System - Advanced - System Tunables:
    net.link.bridge.pfil_member=0
    net.link.bridge.pfil_bridge=1

    I would also recommend to read if_bridge(4)



  • Cool. I knew that was an easy question. Thanks for the information. I'll look up if_bridge also.
