I have a PC with 3 Ethernet ports. I am able to share internet to the other two ports with internet coming in on eth1. I use the following setup on /etc/network/interfaces after aptitude bridge-utils and brctl addbr br0
auto lo br0 iface lo inet loopback iface eth1 inet manual iface eth2 inet manual iface eth3 inet manual iface br0 inet dhcp bridge_ports eth1 eth2 eth3
But now I would like to give everything static IP addresses
iface br0 inet static bridge_ports eth1 eth2 eth3 address 192.168.10.200 broadcast 192.168.10.255 gateway 192.168.10.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 iface eth2 inet static address 192.168.10.201 broadcast 192.168.10.255 gateway 192.168.10.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 iface eth3 inet static address 192.168.10.202 broadcast 192.168.10.255 gateway 192.168.10.1 netmask 255.255.255.0
Can I give eth1 a static IP Address too? That is where the Ethernet is coming in on. When Remote Desktop Connecting, I connect to the IP Address of br0. This configuration does not give me internet access though. I shouldn't keep the iface eth1,2,3 inet manual lines, correct?
