linux – Methods to allow EAPOL packet forwarding by means of OpenVSwitch?

I am making an attempt to make use of OpenVSwitch to check 802.1x authentication, but it surely does not appear to be forwarding EAPOL multicast packets by default.

With a linux bridge, this is able to be completed, say for bridge br0, by:

echo 8 > /sys/class/internet/br0/bridge/group_fwd_mask

However for OpenVSwitch the trail does not exist, This is what I see as a substitute

  • br0 is an OpenVSwitch
  • br-left is a linux bridge
