l2tpv3tun interface does not get configured with barrier-breaker netifd

Reported by: terom@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: l2tp Cc:


Using the following uci network configuration:

config interface 'public'

option type 'bridge'
option ifname 'eth1.10'
option proto 'l2tp'
option tunnel_id 3
option localaddr
option peeraddr
option session_id 3
option mtu 1500

I would expect to get a br-public with an l2tp-public tunnel. On trunk 41836, only the br-public bridges comes up, with no l2tp-public interface.

I suspect this is due to the l2tpv3tun package shipping a obsolete /lib/network/ that no longer functions with netifd?

I had a go at writing a custom netifd proto for l2tp, see attached. I have no idea how netifd works though, so getting the link-mtu/bridge-iface stuff working is a hack, and I don't know how to get it to support the style of proto-static style option ipaddr ... interface configuration options as supported by the older l2tp proto.

i think you need option proto 'l2tpv3'

I can't find any reference to l2tpv3 anywhere. Nor does changing the above to option proto 'l2tpv3' have any effect - I still only get a br-public with eth0.10 (and wlan0) attached and no IP configuration or l2tp interface bridged.
