Mkay. I am not a networking person. I am trying to set this virtualization platform up, and that guide calls for the use of a virtual bridge in order for the virtual machine to have its own address on the network.
What is this thing asking for, exactly? I don't understand completely what a bridge does. A bridge makes one interface from multiple interfaces? Wouldn't, then, the virtual machine have the same address as the real interface?
Maybe that is the goal of this guide and I am mistaken.
If eth0 and tap0 are supposed to have different, and real accessible IP addresses, how are these set up? This guide here shows the interfaces being canceled (addresses set to 0.0.0.0) and then the bridge being set up. http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-HOWTO...ml#BASIC-SETUP
How, then, do I set up those two interfaces that are enslaved by the bridge? They need to have specific, static IP addresses.
