I have two VMs ( linux based VM ) running on a UBUNTU/QEMU KVM. I am looking at a simple networking model, where in the VMs have public address and need to talk to the outside world and the outside world should be able to talk to the VMs as well. I did this
- Created a bridge with A.B.C.D/16 ( class B address )
- eth2 is part of the brige with A.B.C.E /32 host address
- VM's interface ( through TAP ) has A.B.C.F / 16 address
eth2 and VM interface are both part of the bridge. Now however, I am unable to ping these address from the outside world. If i remove eth2 from the bridge, I am able to ping the eth2.
Please let me know what is going on.
