[OFF/humor] Bridges Demolishers Squad

[ Edited ]

Hi,

I'm thinking about creating some friendly association warning ERL users about the dangers (for small defenseless and cute animals) of setting up bridges on their router. Our motto would be something like "each time you setup a bridge, you kill a kitten."

Of course, having some kittens at our disposal would speed up the spread of our association's message (I was thinking about "each time you setup a bridge, WE kill a kitten" to begin with).


Feel free to share your suggestions (and send kittens to our future headquarters) Man Happy

 

Beware

Nah, the message here is more like "don't pick or use a router to do the job of a switch $#?&@!". Boxing Smiley

Getting IPTV or ToIP VLANs from your ISP to your LAN with a bridge may be tolerated. I'll ask the kittens.

I have 2 MikrotikRB750's that the current config makes them do the job of a switch....

 

That said they do actually have a switch chip inside and are configured to use it so not sure if that counts ;-)

Re: [OFF/humor] Bridges Demolishers Squad

Old thread but I thought I'd share my story of my repentance and ultimate salvation from bridging:

 

When I got my first EdgeRouter-PoE and didn't know any better, I used the WAN+2LAN2 wizard to do the initial setup. Afterwards, I learned the error of my ways, but kept the status-quo for fear of upsetting the users (ewww) with downtime. Eventually though, I wanted in on that sweet, sweet DPI and hardware offload action so I devised a list of commands to demolish my bridge and erect a proper switch in its place, lovingly saved to a file called burn_the_bridge.sh

 

I executed these commands, and committed them, and nobody knew anything had changed. But change it did, with zero downtime Man Very Happy

justinhayes: Do you mind sharing your bridge burning script? Might be useful for the anti-bridging brigade here Icon Lol

My original was much more extensive than this, had 8 VLANs to reassign, DNS forwarders to move around, etc.
