3.6 Networking

The following networking features, bug fixes, and enhancements are included in this update.

  • NetworkManager includes capability for VLAN filtering on bridge interfaces.  This enhancement enables you to configure virtual LAN (VLAN) filtering on bridge interfaces in the corresponding NetworkManager connection profiles, as well as define VLANs directly on bridge ports.

  • NetworkManager includes capability for configuring policy routing rules.  This enhancement enables you to configure rules as part of a connection profile,which means that NetworkManager now adds the rules when the profile is activated and removes the rules when the profile is deactivated. Previously, you would have to set up policy routing rules outside of NetworkManager by using the dispatcher script provided in the NetworkManager-dispatcher-routing-rules package.
