CPUG Challenge 2018?? We will be holding another CPUG Challenge for 2018.
The plan is to time it around CPX again (earlier this year), but not necessarily limit it to those in attendance.
I'll provide more details as we get a bit closer, but be ready! -E

    Default Bridging while unloaded

    Anyone happen to know the impact of "fw unload" or "cpstop" to a bridged interface (GAIA R77.30)? I would assume it's going to disable flow across it, for obvious security reasons (just like ip forwarding).

    More importantly, if I'm right, does anyone know how to manually re-enable flow across the bridge? Is it simply handled by IP forwarding?

    Unfortunately, I only have a very limited production maintenance window to test this, and don't have immediate access to my lab.

    Thanks guys,


    (yes, call it an abuse of power, but I created a new forum for this - I'd do the same for any of you, and often have)

    After fw unloadlocal:

    echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/bridge/forwarding

    Verified in VMWare setup.
