    DHCP only for KVM host

    Thanks for the input also I only skimmed your documentation it seems to follow the same goal I have in mind. Also we have FAI under Debian I like the idea to just kick up some ramdisk only systems for quick testings and specially network test. And also beeing able to hide the laboratory from the eyes of the common people.

    What bothers me about bridges is the best entry point in iptables to control it well enough. But thats low on the list as its working right now .

    I bridge device shouldn't be too hard, you'll put something like this in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-br0

    Code:
    DEVICE=br0
    TYPE=Bridge
    ONBOOT=yes
    ONBOOT=yes
    NM_CONTROLLED=no
    BOOTPROTO=static
    IPADDR=192.168.99.1
    NETMASK=255.255.255.0
    IP address ofcourse will vary. What ever you're bridging to might look something like this:

    Code:
    BOOTPROTO=none
    ONBOOT=yes
    NM_MANAGED=no
    BRIDGE=br0
    Surprising enough, I have a setup a lot like the one you're describing, a PXE install server as a VM on an offline network, with routing setup in IP tables and everything. I took the time to document it all, take a look at my website www.terminalmonkey.com - click on the 'Building a home lab' link.
