Hi guys.

Is anyone working on possibility to assign IP addresses to bridgeX ineterfaces the way it's possible on FreeBSD?
Or am I doing something wrong?
# ifconfig bridge0 inet
ifconfig: SIOCAIFADDR: Inappropriate ioctl for device

I know one can assign IP to a bridge member but to be honest I was frankly suprised to discover I can assign IP to a tap dev but not bridge.
I am on 3.99.9
