Setting ethernet port mode to bridge in Unleashed (R500)

The R500 has two ethernet ports. It seems however there isn't the level of detail or configuration i'd expect with the physical ports compared to the flexibility of other options in Unleashed.

I checked the command line but the only reference is in the ethernet port status:

ruckus# show ethinfo

System Ethernet Overview:

  Port  0:

    Interface= eth0

    MAC Address= d4:00:00:00:00:00

   Physical Link= up

    Speed= 1000Mbps

  Port  1:

    Interface= eth1

    MAC Address= d4:00:00:00:00:01

    Physical Link= down

    Speed= 1000Mbps

What i want to do is be able to bridge the second port in, so another device can connect to the network. So fairly simple. Note i have not connected the device yet. How do i set this?

However as an aside, i would have thought i could also configure the vlan options of each port, whether it is trunk/access mode, etc. Am i missing something?

Hi eXDeeNZ,

We can have a client connect to second port and use it, it does not need any configuration, unless you want it to get an IP from different vlan.

can you have a switch connected to that port? will DHCP pass through?
