I want to simulate the following network with 2 laptops connected over internet. How can I do it? How can I set up the intefaces? [I'm using KVM if it matters]. Any help appreciated.
If you're not using a router, just connect one laptop's NIC to the other's NIC, you'll need to use a crossover Cat 5 cable. BTW, that's not "The Internet", it's just wires with Ethernet on them.
