Re: network config not working on newer libvirt

Greetings Laine,

you are correct, the previous os was debian 10 with libvirt 3, the new os is gentoo with libvirt 6.2.0

iptables is installed on the host (required by libvirt because of the virt network features, from what I can see, it isn't running.
the guest is libreelec, somehow I don't think it has iptables installed or configured.

on the dhcp server (the other vm) I see this:
Sat Sep  5 00:33:25 2020 daemon.info dnsmasq-dhcp[2579]: DHCPDISCOVER(br-lan) 52:54:00:5a:4c:8c
Sat Sep  5 00:33:25 2020 daemon.info dnsmasq-dhcp[2579]: DHCPOFFER(br-lan) 52:54:00:5a:4c:8c

multiple times, it means that the server accepted the request and offers the correct ip to it but doesn't seem to get there.

I can ssh from one vm to another, without the manual ip, I cannot do it

alright, I'll try that, thanks.
