WAN interface name in linuxa DSA
Open, Requires assessmentPublicBUG


When dealing with DSA on Linux the interface are named in following way (in my case on ARM64 platform - BPI-R64):

  • wan
  • lan1
  • lan2
  • lan3
  • lan4

When I perform show interface in VyOS I'm seeing only:

[email protected]:~$ show interfaces 
Codes: S - State, L - Link, u - Up, D - Down, A - Admin Down
Interface        IP Address                        S/L  Description

br0.100          -                                 u/D  
eth0             -                                 u/u  
lan1             -                                 u/u  
lan2             -                                 u/D  
lan3             -                                 u/D  
lan4             -                                 u/D  
lo                            u/u  
wlan0            -                                 A/D

wan interface seems to be missing. I believe it should be visible also as an ethernet interface.
