    Hey everyone – I have a couple questions.
    In transparent bridge mode, can you still have a 3rd NIC that has an IP assigned to it for management purposes?
    How much space does the install actually take on a CF card? I have a stack of older ones, and am wondering if I can utilize some for this or if some just need to go to the trash.
    In transparent bridge mode, I understand you can control QoS. Can you still control firewalling (blocking ports)?

    Thanks!

    Yes. Even the bridge itself can have an IP address for management.
    The latest version needs a 1GB CF. You could do it with less if you first decompress the image on a hard disk and then copy the contents of the disk to the CF. Then you could also resize the partitions.
    Yes you can still use firewall in bridging mode.

    Cool – thanks for the reply.
    I’d asked because I have a stack of 512 CFs laying here (remnants of the days before you could get a 4G card for $18….) that I’ve been holding onto in the hopes they will have a use someday, besides emergency card for my camera.

    And the bridge having an IP is interesting – I was not aware of this. Now I can use the VIA board I have sitting here!

    Thanks!

    Here’s another question – since you can add a management IP to the bridge, can you add a second one with a public IP for OpenVPN?

    Sounds like not appropriate. If you want to use OpenVPN you’ll have to use routing mode, rather than bridging mode.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I figured this was the case.
