On debian squeeze, I setup a bridge based on eth0. My
# The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface #allow-hotplug eth1 #auto eth0 iface eth0 inet manual iface eth0 inet6 manual auto br0 iface br0 inet dhcp bridge_ports eth0 bridge_stp off # bridge_maxwait 0 bridge_fd 9 bridge_hello 2 bridge_maxage 12
Despite setting eth0 to manual, it get's an ip address via DHCP. Setting
ifconfig eth0 down explicitly, disables the interface for a few seconds before it comes back up again.
How can I disable eth0 and use br0 has my only network interface?
