Event Timeline

For all the bridge issues, I wanted to see what was happening on crux, taking T2356 as reference:

set interfaces tunnel tun12 encapsulation sit
set interfaces tunnel tun12 local-ip
set interfaces tunnel tun12 remote-ip
set interfaces tunnel tun12 address 2001:db8:bb::2/64
set interfaces bridge br0 member interface tun12

  Configuration path: interfaces bridge br0 [member] is not valid
  Set failed

crux has another syntax, but interface tunnels not bridgeable in crux

So the commands were not on crux under the tunnel section and trying to use either ip link or brctl is failing:

vyos@vyos# brctl show
bridge name	bridge id		STP enabled	interfaces
br0		8000.080027beffc1	no		eth1

vyos@vyos# brctl addif br0 eth2

vyos@vyos# brctl show
bridge name	bridge id		STP enabled	interfaces
br0		8000.080027b0d2dc	no		eth1

vyos@vyos# brctl addif br0 tun12
can't add tun12 to bridge br0: Invalid argument

vyos@vyos# ip a s tun12

Make sense, because IPIP this is L3, the bridge is L2.
In this case, we should not show L3 as an allowed interface for bridge. will now not display tunnel (but gre-bridge) as options for bridge. Still not preventing them to be used.
