Re: [libvirt-users] Network without forward mode

Hey!

Another question. The documentation about networks say:

That's exactly what I want: just a vnet interface, no bridge, no
routing, no forwarding. However, if I create a network with just that:


"Just a vnet interface, no bridge" means you want no network.  Where
should the vnet be connected?

#v+
<network>
 <name>public</name>
 <uuid>4629ba54-9e33-4a1f-9e45-78a1c8faaddc</uuid>
</network>

libvirt (2.0.0) adds a bridge stanza:

#v+
<network>
 <name>public</name>
 <uuid>4629ba54-9e33-4a1f-9e45-78a1c8faaddc</uuid>
 <bridge name='virbr1' stp='on' delay='0'/>
 <mac address='52:54:00:15:45:da'/>
</network>
#v-


Well yes, that's the bridge to connect to, otherwise you would have no
network.  How would the VMs connect to each other?  For the host to have
access to that network you would need another interface which is not
added.  This is an isolated network.

The bridge is created. If I spawn a VM attached to this network, it gets
added to the bridge. Any way to have a network where absolutely no setup
is done?


Yes, have no network at all =)
You should probably describe your problem more closely.  Because based
on what you are saying you indeed want *no* network at all.

Thanks!
