Bridge BLUE and GREEN with new Zone webui interface

Post by PattTech » September 12th, 2019, 4:48 am

Hello,

What is the proper way to bridge GREEN and BLUE zones with the web ui interface of version 3? Where to put native and bridge?

Thanks.

With the zone interface conf you can add more than one interface to a zone so there is no need for a additional bridge between the zones. (This was never a good Idea) But i have never tested if hostapd works if it was added to green via the gui.

What did you mean with version3 ?

For version 3, my mistake, I read that a new feature would be present in version 3 and taught that is what I was using, but I am using version 2.23.

So I tried putting Green in bridge, Eth0 and WLan0 native in Green zone, reconfigured hostapd to use green zone but it is returning the error "Selected interface is not a wirless lan card!".

What configuration could be done through the zone interface to bridge BLUE and GREEN properly? I would like to avoid using a script file...
