Recommended Posts

I have followed the instructions to build a temp bridge and virtual interface for the virtual machine.


the network didnt work then. what have i probably missed out?


any ideas?


here is teh script i used to get the network




#buld a tap adapter

tunctl -t tap1 -u <username>

#set a bridge and named br0

brctl addbr br0

#make eth0 promisc

ifconfig eth0 promisc

#connect the real interface to bridge

brctl addif br0 eth0

#give br0 the existing ip

ifconfig br0

# connect the virtual interface to bridge

brctl addif br0 tap1

# activate tap1

ifconfig tap1 up

# set permission

chmod 0666 /dev/net/tun

You have to do all the above as root, and reboot (as your ethernet connection will stop working after "ifconfig eth0 promisc").


ifconfig br0

Doers this mean that you are using static addresses at your router?
