virtualbricks connect switch to local network

Posted 11-06-2012 at 02:29 AM by zhjim

Another post for me myself and eye so I don't forget how I did it.

Here are the steps to get a virtualbricks setup with a vde_switch to connect through your local computer to the lan/wan/inet. All under Debian wheezy while in late testing.
