BRCFG utility
« on: December 06, 2004, 01:36:23 PM »
Hi

I'm trying to configure ethernet bridging on my Suse 9.1 kernel 2.6.4  I've already compiled the kernel with all the options required for bridging.  But the problem is the brcfg utility, i got the program and when try to enable bridging by typing the following command :  brcfg -enable.  I get the following error :
bash: /usr/sbin/brcfg: No such file or directory.  I do have the program in the refer directory but i don't know what the problem is.  Any help will be really appreciate.

Thanks!!

Leo

If you are sure that program is there then you may be logged normal user.
Kindly try it using login as root, i thin su will not work :)

I'm already logged as root, and still have the error.  I tried using normal user and later su, but can't get brcfg start successfully.

Then here we can have two resons ..

Ok Rickey maybe you're right, i will study this case in more detail, 'cause it is really important at work.  I'm probing an IPS with snort in-line, and as you know snort in-line needs to work in bridge mode.

Regards!!

Ok i found the problem and the solution for this:

The problem is the BRCFG tool only works for kernel before 2.2.14.  Later kernels need to use the tool Bridgex.  Now, if anyone knows where can i find it, i will appreciate you reply me as soon as possible.

Thanks!
