Bridge : Assigning an IP of the "protected network"

Discussion in 'Linux Networking' started by Grigoris Lionis, May 25, 2012.

  1. Hello everyone,
    I need tcp (statefull) access from a transparent bridge, without
    messing wit the network (ie no nat on the bridge, availiable subnet
    full..., cannot assign new ip to the bridge) .
    Is it possible to generate a tcp/ip connection from the bridge, using
    an ip of a machine behind the
    bridge, with the bridge routing to that machine everything but the
    originating from the bridge itself? So the rest of the net (nat server
    etc) would view the traffic as originating from the protected system
    while the same traffic would not be bridged to it. To the outside
    world, any connection originating from the bridge would look like it
    comes from the machine behind the bridge.

    Without NAT, I don't see how it is possible. Even with NAT, I am not
    sure it can work.
