T2080 Routing

I have been working with the T2080RDB board and am trying to configure a bridge between two disconnected networks



After enabling the board I successfully create a bridge with the following commands:


brctl addbr br0

brctl addif br0 fm1-mac10 fm1-mac3

ip link set fm1-mac10 up

ip link set fm1-mac3 up

ip link set br0 up

ip addr add brd + dev br0


I now have full communication between the device connected through fm1-mac10 and fm1-mac3. I am trying to initialize this bridge un boot up automatically. I have been editing the /etc/network/interfaces file, which looks like so:


# The loopback interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback


auto br0
iface br0 inet static
bridge_ports fm1-mac3 fm1-mac10
bridge_stp off
bridge_fd 0
bridge_maxwait 0


This should, by everything ive researched online, initialize a bridge on boot up but it has not been successful thus far. I tried adding the following lines to the /etc/network/interfaces file to see if anything changed but everything remained the same on boot up:


auto fm1-mac10
iface fm1-mac10 inet manual


auto fm1-mac3
iface fm1-mac3 inet manual


Any help on this matter would be much appreciated as I do not know what else to try


Thanks in advance!
