Updated bridge-utils packages that add two enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The bridge-utils packages contain utilities for configuration of the Linux Ethernet bridge. The Linux Ethernet bridge can be used to connect multiple Ethernet devices together. This connection is fully transparent: hosts connected to one Ethernet device see hosts connected to the other Ethernet devices directly.
- The man page was missing the multicast option descriptions. This update adds that information to the man page.
- This enhancement adds the missing feature described in the BRCTL(8) man page, that allows the user to get the bridge information for a simple bridge using the "brctl show $BRIDGE" command.
All users of bridge-utils are advise to upgrade to these updated packages, which add these enhancements.
