"Urgent".... This is not urgent for ANYONE using this site other than you, and makes just about the worst title possible, as it it just rude and says nothing whatsoever about your question.

. Bridged network

.Host only networking

select Network support for guest as one of above given type.

By the way avoid to put 'urgent' word in subject.

In fact...

It might be to your advantage to edit the title "Urgent". You would likely attract more interest and replies. I am sorry that I know nothing about CentOS to help you.

Tulsi - please take the time to properly explain what you are trying to do and what you need to do it. Just firing unrelated questions at us doesn't give is anything to work with. will give you plenty of info about SELinux.

I have also reported your thread to request a title change.
