question about vlans and ethernet promiscuous mode
« on: February 01, 2018, 11:26:39 pm »
Hello,

Given the following example, if I set br0.200 to promiscuous mode, does that set the parent interface AND br0.100 to promiscuous mode?

Thank you for your time...

br0 = parent interface
br0.100 = lan
br0.200 = dmz

I got my answer:

the parent interface goes into promiscuous mode, the other vlans do not.

Isn't br0 a bridge interface, can you put a bridge interface into promiscuous mode as its a group of interfaces.

I think you are correct, but I chose a random name for my example as if it were a plain ethernet port.

Thanks for your input!
