Post Virtual Machine Networking


Ok, so I just installed windows xp on a virtual machien within my Ubuntu OS, using QEMU. Now I want to be able to share files between XP and Ubuntu and, if possible get internet for xp. Any idea how to do that?

This may not help you too much. However, you may have much more success using a more established Virtualization software package such as VMWare. It runs very well on Linux and will support Virtual Networking etc etc.This may not help you too much.

Well here are a couple of sites that talk about networking with QEMU.

http://www.gnome.org/~markmc/qemu-networking.html

http://people.redhat.com/berrange/ol...rk-bridge.html

If I may suggest provided you are on Intel or AMD hardware that you use VirtualBox, or VMWare Player, it will be much easier to setup and use. VirtualBox offers many features, one of which is out of the box networking to the internet via a NAT device for the guest OS. You can also use a host interface that creates a tap device you can bridge to your real wired ethernet, and VirtualBox has excellent documentation. OR VMWare will provide device interfaces for you as well, it is very good with networking. I also am experienced with xen and even that networking is easy if you have a wired connection to your router. If you are using a wireless card or want some other setup for your network configuration, look at my two recent blogs on VM networking at http://www.myspace.com/scheidel21 they are not the greatest step by step guides, but they give you some ideas.
