Alexander is correct in saying that bridging would allow you to do that.
There are two networking discussed in the guide.
The first is a NAT (network address translation), in which the guests are
given "private" ip addresses and any outbound traffic appears to be coming
from the host machine's IP address. This is the same as the setup on your
ADSL router where the internal network machines get addresses of
192.168.x.x but the internet sees your requests as coming from the IP
address of your router.
There should be lots of documentation in linux firewalling guides under
sections on NAT (or possibly called IP Masquerading in some). Have a look
at these for information on port forwarding to reveal services
inside the virtual (such as ssh).
The other option is bridging. This shares the physical network interface
of the host with the guest. In this case the VM acts as though it's a
machine plugged into the same subnet as the host, its services are
accessible like those of the host and it's as vulnerable to attack as the

I would like it to run Fedora12 32+64 && Fedora13 32+64 && Rawhide.
For trying to reproduce certain bugs on current Releases.
I can add extra drives to box as necessary.
Best base F12,F13, Rawhide?

Friend of Fedora
i already wrote a thread about it a long time ago:
now i try it again. we've got a working pxe server and use it to install
all of our system. now i like to test it, but it still (or again) not
with virtualbox 3.2 if i choose bridged networking and switch off
VT-x/AMD-V support as described in:
than it's working. but with kvm not.
so is there anybody who can tell me:
- is the pxe boot working in virt-manager kvm?
- if yes, which kind of setup? ie:
- which kind of networking to choose?
- nat or bridged?
- what else should i've to configure to get it working?
thanks in advance.

I'm experimenting with boot.fedoraproject.org again, trying to
install a KVM booted from the bfo.iso boot CD image, and I'm
noticing some wacky behavior.
When I let the image file boot normally the DHCP step
always prints dots for several seconds then fails.
If I send a Ctrl-Alt-Del to the KVM after the initial network
failure, it reboots and the 2nd DHCP attempt prints one
dot then immediately says "Here we go!" (There was a mention
of this same behavior for PXE here:
and the Ctrl-Alt-Del thing worked for gPXE as well).
I'm now trying to install f13, and it is downloading the
install.img file. Looking at my network stats, it is only
managing a data rate of about 15K (occasionally hitting
a peak of 20K). Meanwhile, the cpu is running at 99%.
Is the gPXE ethernet running one byte at a time polled
transfers or something?
I'll see if the transfer rate improves once it starts running
the anaconda kernel (but it may take a while to get that
Thanks for the reply Gilboa. I had given up on getting a response to my
email and almost didn't spot it. It's disappointing that nobody from
Red Hat feels like it's worth responding to. The only thing I could
find in Bugzilla was 520228, a very similar problem with F11 from Aug
2009. Though this pertains to my Fedora desktop at home, possibly my
Red Hat rep at work can find a resource who would share some insight on
Anyway, I switched QEMU_AUDIO_DRV from "alsa" to "pa" and that made the
problem worse, sound went out a few minutes after starting the guest. I
don't have any experience running KVM under F12 but I am running
Virtualbox under F12 at work (no hardware virtual extentions) and sound
works great in my XP guest. What exactly are the "connection refused"
messages you're getting from qemu? The only unusual messages I'm
getting are occasional bursts of this message:
Jun 11 23:52:51 host pulseaudio: ratelimit.c: 676 events suppressed
Jun 12 10:10:06 host pulseaudio: ratelimit.c: 676 events suppressed
Jun 12 11:02:53 host pulseaudio: ratelimit.c: 685 events suppressed
In Gentoo I only had this problem when I ran KVM as a module, not when
it was compiled into the kernel. Unfortunately nowdays compiling a
custom kernel in Red Hat/Fedora is a little more involved and not really
worth re-doing every time a new kernel update comes out.

Hi, New to the list but not to Linux.
There has been a discussion on the "Fedora Users" list about an anomaly
that's been seen with FC13 64bit and installing XP as a guest.
It's a standard FC13 installation on a machine with an Intel i7 and 4G Ram.
When the XP installation finishes the initial text style part of its
install process and reboots to run the GUI part of the install process
the virtual machine fails to boot it from the virtualised hard disk.
But if its set to boot from the CD or, in my case, the iso image of a XP
install CD and its allowed to time out its initial question "Press any
key to boot from CD....." then the virtual machine starts up and
completes the XP installation.
One the installation is finished, similar behaviour is seen to get the
XP virtual system to start up. If I change the setting in virt-manager
to boot from the Hard Disk image the boot of the VM fails but leaving it
set to boot from the install CD allows it to start normally after
allowing the initial question to timeout
