Is there a way to create a network bridge via programming, I mean from
the command line, or from manipulation the registry rather from the
API?

I am not too fussy, when it comes to it I am willing to go the API way?

Use "netsh bridge" commands

The netsh bridge command does not allow you to create the bridge
itself. It only allow configuration of the bridge after its has been
manually configured in the Network Connections panel.

Is there an API substitue for the manual way?
