CONFIG_ETH_NATIVE_POSIX_STARTUP_AUTOMATIC

Start network interface automatically

Type: bool

Help

If set, the native_posix ethernet driver will set up the network interface, requiring zephyr.exe to be run with root privileges (needed to create and configure the TAP device). If not set (the default and recommended way), the network interface must be set up manually using net-setup.sh (from the net-tools project repo). The zephyr.exe program can then be run as a non-root user.
