Description lionel.h 2017-06-17 06:33:36 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm trying to make a brouter on my raspberry pi at home. Here is the "very" simplified architecture: 

            |       |
            |  br0  |------+              +--------------------+
    +-------|       |      |              | systemd-nspawn     |
    |       +-------+      |              |  openvpn           |
    |                      |              |                    |
    |                      |              |                    |
+---+----+           +-----+----------+   +--------+           |
|  eth0  |           | vb-vpngateway  +---+  host0 |           |
+--------+           +----------------+   +--------+           |      |     |
                                          |                    |

In order for ports belonging to the bridge to communicate between each other I need to put in place a bunch of ebtables rules...

I'm running Fedora Server edition. ebtables is installed and all modules are loaded correctly: 

[lionel@raspberry ~]$ lsmod |grep ebt
ebt_arp                16384  2
ebt_ip                 16384  2
ebtable_broute         16384  1
ebtable_nat            16384  1
ebtable_filter         16384  1
ebtables               24576  3 ebtable_filter,ebtable_nat,ebtable_broute
bridge                122880  1 ebtable_broute

And everything works fine when evoking ebtables command directly..

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name        : firewalld
Version     :
Release     : 1.fc25
Architecture: noarch

Name        : ebtables
Version     : 2.0.10
Release     : 21.fc25
Architecture: armv7hl

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo firewallctl direct -p add rule eb broute BROUTING 1 '-p IPv4 -i eth0 --ip-dst -j DROP'
2. sudo firewallctl reload

Actual results:
ebtables rule not installed in BROUTING on the broute table.
And in the log of firewalld I have:
raspberry firewalld[15769]: WARNING: '/usr/sbin/ebtables -t broute -I BROUTING_direct 1 -p IPv4 -i eth0 --ip-dst -j DROP' failed:

Expected results:
ebtables rule is installed in BROUTING on the broute table.

Additional info:

If I installed the rules directly via the ebtables command, everything is working smoothly without any trouble. But once I reload the firewall, the ebtables rules I put in place manually are erased. Hope this will ring a bell to someone..

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2017-11-16 13:38:47 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 25 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 25. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '25'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 25 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2017-12-12 05:36:35 EST
Fedora 25 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-12-12. Fedora 25 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
