You don't detail how you went about setting up your networking - by
default virt-manager will set up NAT networking on the host machine,
such that the guest gets an ip from the host for a local (to the host)
network. That should work for most use cases, but if you really need
your guest to be visible on the network and get an IP address from
your router you need to use bridged networking. A slightly out of date
howto is here:


It's out of date in that F11 NetworkManager does (I think) support
bridging, so it may not be necessary to disable NM.
