Not sure if anyone can give me some network advice what I’d like is to have my Ubuntu NAS pass on its internet to my windows pc. Is a bridge what I’m looking to create? On Ubuntu I was trying to use nmtui or advanced network connections (gui) to create bridge I added both network cards to the bridge one network card go to my router the other one goes to my pc. Unfortunately after applying this I haven’t been able to get a valid IP address on my PC using this bridge. I’m likely doing it wrong.


The slaves I assume would be the two network cards?


Any advice would help.

Edit: Apparently in Ubuntu you only need to use shared to computers according to this YouTube video.. yet my bloody windows pc still doesn’t detect a ip address. So no idea…
