WAN interface name in linuxa DSA
Open, Requires assessmentPublicBUG

Description

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:

vyos@vyos:~$ show interfaces 
Codes: S - State, L - Link, u - Up, D - Down, A - Admin Down

wlan0            -                                 A/D

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