Per default dns resolution is working when using libvirt and let the
machines run in nated network mode.
What are the dns settings in your Windows vm? Is the dns server also the
gateway address? Per default and if you not have changed the
libvirt default network it should be 192.168.122.1 ?
Is the default network in libvirt running? Whats the output of
If no running network is listed start the default network with the following
virsh net-start --network default
And mark it for autostart:
virsh net-autostart default
Can you see a dnsmasq process on your host machine? This dnsmasq is the dns
server used by libvirt for dns resolution inside the vm's running in nated
