Because switching users in Ubuntu is very slow, sound stops playing, and lots of small things that make it a bother.

comment MySQL port forwarding
note I'm not sure how your setup looks, but this will work for some setups. It all depends where the IP packets are inserted from the VM.

Are you sure you can't just add an IP for B's network to that VM? BTW Alice and Bob are good names to use.

comment Setting up Ubuntu Server as a Router with DHCPD and 3 Ethernet devices
Back after a nice weekend. :-) I see nothing that is blocking UDP in your firewall rules, try running "dig google.com @8.8.8.8" from a client on the network.. if you still have problems you can install dnsmasq.

What do you mean by "bridging for internet", does that mean that you are stuck on having letting people surf through your router? Bridging means that you will use one of those br0 interfaces to let people get DHCP from your internet provider instead of your server.

Yes, it is a very bad idea. :-) It's not about costs, some time you have the only computer around.

comment Where is dnsmasq started and configured?
I'm unsure what "and stopped networking RESULT=ok" actually does.
