Network Interfaces

  • W. David Ashley


You can configure network interfaces on physical hosts with the methods in the virInterface class. This is useful for setting up the host to share one physical interface between the multiple guest domains that you want connected directly to the network (briefly, you can enslave a physical interface to the bridge and then create a tap device for each VM that is sharing the interface), as well as for general host network interface management. In addition to configuring the physical hardware, you can use the methods to configure bridges, bonded interfaces, and VLAN interfaces.
