How to add a network bridge to the ctrlX CORE?

I would like to use the ctrlX CORE as a network bridge. Then I should be able to reach a certain network device from my pc through the ctrlX CORE and I do not need a additional network switch.

T.e.:

Click on bridge0 and configure a static IP address and/or use DHCP:

5.

If you are using a netword switch, please reboot the switch and the ctrlX CORE.

 

6.

Here the status of my example:

Hint

eth0 has a static IP address (192.168.1.1) configured but it’s not used in this example.

eth1 has no configred IP addresses

@lunatiX
Just to be sure, a.f.a.i.k the ctrlX core has no ethernet switch inside so I assume this bridge is created in SW where the processor forwards the packets from one Ethernet MAC to the other and vise versa, is this correct? In this case it is important to realize the processor gets loaded if the network gets busier.

@Marc_Smaak

you are correct, it's going via the processor.

Well explained, Be careful, Please follow the instructions. Wrong configuration will lead to an unreachable ctrlX core.
