Hi. I'm trying to set up communication between a host system and a qemu vm, so the host system can access a server on the vm. Unfortunately, I don't really know what I'm doing (explanations on the Internet are not very beginner friendly) but I've been trying to follow the instructions given in the Gentoo guide for doing this via TUN/TAP.

http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/QEmu

I altered my /etc/conf.d/net file like they described and restarted network services, which created a br0 interface on the host, and used put an IP address on br0 through DHCP. I modprobed the tun module, which created a /dev/net/tun file. I added a qemu-ifup script using the code they provided, and executed my qemu session like so:

Code:

# /usr/local/bin/qemu --cdrom systemrescuecd-x86-1.6.1.iso -net nic,macaddr=52:54:00:12:34:56 -net tap,ifname=tap0,script=/etc/qemu-ifup


The qemu session starts, but I see the following in the terminal:

Code:
TUNSETIFF: Device or resource busy


Also, the tutorial does not indicate what I am supposed to do inside the VM to set up networking. The guest OS sees two interfaces, lo and eth0, but I am not sure what IP address I am supposed to assign to eth0, or if there is supposed to be another interface available... I do not understand what the tun/tap interface is supposed to look like on the qemu guest side (or the host side, for that matter). I tried just assigning the guest eth0 an ip address that is on the same network as the host OS, but I cannot ping the across.

Here is the ifconfig info for the host while the VM is running:

Code:

Um... seems to be working now. After restarting the computer twice, now I can go into the VM and the eth0 interface is able to ping the host or any of the other IP address on the bridged network.

Must of been tiny, evil network gremlins messing with the Ethernet frames or something like that.

For those hitting this post, i had a dependency on the net-misc/vde service which was started prior to restarting the tap0 device. stopping vde, then starting net.tap0 before starting vde resolved it for me.

hope this helps.
