This needs further investigation. Ok, I had to do some tests. The only distro I have access to where it doesn’t work is archlinux with 3. However, as my process is responsible for the tunnel device all these forms of offloading failed. That’s interesting that the bridge takes the lowest MAC address of the bridge interfaces. Then, not sure why the bridge is not seeing the frame.

For iptables, a good reference though a bit outdated is https: Remember that the bottom part of the diagram represent the “wire” to the kernel.

My rules in the routing tables are simple. However if you don’t connect a program to the interface’s file descriptor, the interface flags show “NO CARRIER” and no traffic is sent it’s equivalent to a regular ethernet interface without a plugged cable.

If you need to test how windows clients interact with a samba server, that’s a good time to use both uml and vbox and have a network that both of them can use. Your original question did not contain any reference to the actual problem so I simply thought of a standalone machine receiving packets destined for the local box, while now it is possible to appreciate the real nature of your question. The frame you receive on tap1 has the destinationa MAC of tap1 obviously, or your application wouldn’t debiwn it.

I believe that the Internet provides enough tn/tap and resources to undertake whatever project you want to pursue, if you are tunn/tap to learn and experiment. In order to disconnect, you should log out first.

July 19, at So, sorry but I’m not going to suggest or recommend anything. MTU – the payload of the ethernet frame you send should not exceed the bridge MTU otherwise it’s silently dropped, this is probably obvious but it’s worth mentioning. So this is an attempt to explain what happens when ioctl TUNSETIFF is called, and how the kernel differentiates between the request for the allocation of a new interface and the request to connect to an existing interface:.

Of course, then you’ll have to manage contention yourself. Does at least app2 receive the messages from app1?

I think I might be having a similar problem to Pradeep. Finally, being edbian ethernet interface, the MTU is set to It even works with wheezy’s 3.

So to make it simple, if your kernel receives a packet from the tun interface or any interface, for that matter whose destination IP address matches the IP address of the tun interface, contains a TCP segment with destination port 80, but there’s no process “owning” TCP port 80 in the debizn, then yes, the packet is dropped, and depending on the type of packet, the kernel may send back a TCP RST, or an ICMP error deebian.

The instructions are the same, the only difference is that the tap interface is being bridged, instead of the ethernet interface. I have a situation whereby kernel version 2.

Link to the source tarball described in the article: I am using the sync packet to throttle the amount of outstanding packets in the previous burst. I’m having the following problem, and I’m hoping you could help me out. In this routine, we will be creating a primary tap interface and bridging it.

The kernel thus creates an interface using the given name or picking the next available name if an empty name was given. Thanks, you’re correct I wasn’t aware of this. I tried by using brctl and iptables to send some traffic to tap1 and others to tap The virtual interfaces are created, made persistent, assigned to an user, and configured by root for example, by initscripts at boot time, using tunctl or equivalent The regular users can then attach and detach as many times as they wish from virtual interfaces that they own.

I am facing some issues while using tap interface over windows. You should probably configure your route at this step. August 15, at Once the two programs are running, traffic can flow in either direction, since the main body of the code will be doing the same thing at both sites.
