There are two possible use of inter-tunnel-bridging:
- MINT inter-tunnel-bridging
This feature enables forwarding of broadcast-multicast (BCMC) packets between devices communicating via Level 2 MiNT links.
When enabled, MiNT tunnels across Level 2,adopted access points are bridged. One of the advantages of inter-tunnel bridging
is the enabling of roaming between these access points. This option is disabled by default.
If enabling this option, use ACLs to filter unwanted BCMC traffic.
- L2TPv3 inter-tunnel-bridging
This use case enables inter tunnel bridging of packets between interfaces.
If a VLAN is bridged in device profile / configuration, using inter-tunnel-bridging you will connect it between L2T and all physical interfaces assigned with affected VLAN.
This option is disabled by default.
Be careful not to create a network loop by over-using this option. Inter-tunnel bridging should be used only at one end of the tunnel.
