Share between Qemu-Kvm host and guest


Hi PPl

So, I have been playing with Qemu-Kvm on Arch, and I want to share files between Host and guest bidirectionally...

Is this possible...?

I know I had to use the samba thing with VMware when I used to run W$ stuff in a virtual mechine in RHEL4...

BRGDS

Of course that's possible. You can, for example, attach an ISO9660 image to your guest's virtual DVD-ROM via qemu's monitor, or use an appropriate method of networking between host and guest to use any file sharing protocol you want. Bridged networking is esp. comfortable for such a setup, and not particulary hard to set up. I'm confident you can come up with a decent howto if you feed Google the right terms.
