On my physical host, ifconfig is showing the following devices :
- lo, obviously
- eth0, primary used
- wlan0, not used, WIFI...
The last two devices were created when installing and playing with the
KVM Virtual Machine Manager.
When trying to assign one of them to a VM, the only choices are :
- eth0: macvtap
- wlan0: macvtap
and the source mode can be chosen between :
My main goal is simplicity, and I'd rather use simple bridging, no NAT,
What would be the simplest choice?
