Creating a bridge

There are two ways to create a bridge:

  • Creating a bridge without members (e.g. preparing a configuration),
  • Creating a bridge that contains interfaces.

The number of bridges you can create depends on your firewall model.

Creating a bridge without members

  1. Click on Add in the toolbar or right-click, then Add.
  2. Click on Bridge, then on No members.
    The new bridge will be added to the list of interfaces and its control panel appears.

Creating a bridge containing selected interfaces

  1. Select the network interfaces to be included in the new bridge (interface_1, interface_2 in this example).
  2. Click on Add in the toolbar or right-click, then Add.
  3. Click on Bridge then on With interface_1, interface_2 etc.
    The new bridge will be added to the list of interfaces and its control panel appears.

The various fields in the control panel of the bridge are explained in the section Modifying a bridge.
