So I finally ponied up the money, and bought a server that can actually handle virtualization. On my host machine, I have two static IP addresses, I installed Ubuntu, and followed the guide on installing the needed packages, and bridging. I am able to connect to the Virtual Machine Manager on my laptop and installed two virtual machines.
For the life of me I don't know how to connect my Virtual Machines to the internet. I'm able to view them just fine through the virtual machine manager, but I can't figure out that final step.
Do I have to have and use separate IP address I have to connect each virtual machine to the internet? Is it possible to use an internal IP address (like 192.168.1.x) and have them route out to the one static IP address?
Here is my /etc/network/interfaces file:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface auto eth0 iface eth0 inet manual auto br0 iface br0 inet static address 188.8.131.52 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 184.108.40.206 broadcast 220.127.116.11 gateway 18.104.22.168 # dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed dns-nameservers 22.214.171.124 bridge_ports eth0 bridge_stp off bridge_fd 0 bridge_maxwait 0
If you need them, I can provide more configuration files.
