FYI, I tested a little more using latest Win 11 Insider release, not working per ping testing.
I can hack the ‘bridge connections’ on Win to get the bridge to work (luck and retries) – I block all adapters on one host with only the TB adapter bridge to communicate via ping when I test.
I was wondering if knowing the state of the interfaces in the registry for the connected adapters might be helpful by comparing what you know for how the adapters ‘should’ look with ebridge and how they look in the registry after hacking bridge.
resent as pilot error on adapter selection in first set of results.
second set just sent
do you still need ‘listadapters’
results are available in a zip
note that I disabled all adapters other than TB3
PCAP result names seem to indicate that selected adapters by number were not actually selected by ebridge
how to return results to you? see no way to attach zip. Google Drive share will required email, thanks
correction, got it after a second try
Thanks Vadim, I’ll get to it tomorrow.
I hit the debug build link and it went off into lala land with no download (after all it is MS)
Thanks for your reply.
I’m happy to test if you decide to look further into the bridging of Thunderbolt adapters.
I tested after setting up a 2 adapter bridge (these are Thunderbolt adapters).
When set up, cannot ping across the bridge, so doesn’t seem to be working.
Here’s the scenario:
1. Connect three Win 10 20H2 machines via Thunderbolt Networking
2. the middle machine exposes the TB Adapter from each neighbor
3. Bridging the three together via the middle man works for existing ‘Bridge Connections’ from the Network Connections UI (after much fuss and redo)
4. Disable all other network connections to the lan (ethernet and wifi adapters)
4. Test is to invoke each neighbor using //name.local which yields the file explorer for each neighbor, once at a time of course.
5. Of course each neighbor can be pinged by ping name.local
These tests do not work after setting up the transparent bridge
Thank you Vadim!
I can get the existing version of ‘bridge connections’ on Win 10 20H2 to work partially; have to try reset network , try again. Sometimes it actually works.
I’m working to bridge thunderbolt3 adapters that become visible once a TB3 connection is made with the computer. In a three computer set up I can bridge the middle computer with the ‘virtual’ TB3 adapters so that each computer on the end of the bridge can reach all three.
Once the bridge is really done it works quite well – hunting for something more reliable.
