qemu ping guest os


I was testing a server in a virtual machine. Now I want to access it from my host. I know, that I can access the host from the guest with but what's the IP adress of the guest when I'm working on my host?



I tried to add
-redir tcp:8080::10000
10000 is the port on my guest and I want to access it through localhost:8080.

But it does not work.

Any ideas?


Edit: It works now! iptables was activated and blocked the access...

Thanks for posting the solution. That's the LQ spirit.

A suggestion for the future: If you answer your own question, put the solution in a separate post; this does 2 good things:
  • It generates e-mail to anyone who subscribed to either the thread or the forum.
  • It avoids the creation of oxymoronic 0-reply solved threads.
