Re: network config not working on newer libvirt

ok, sounds reasonable

here are the relevant adapters of the vm:

the dump was taken from the host tapping onto virtsw-streamer.

virtsw-streamer is configured as follows:
    <interface type='network'>
      <mac address='52:54:00:5a:4c:8c'/>
      <source network='default' portid='77aae31e-5efa-4789-911c-c55b367cd695' bridge='virtsw'/>
      <target dev='virtsw-streamer'/>
      <model type='virtio'/>
      <alias name='net0'/>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x03' function='0x0'/>
    </interface>

here is what I get:
utils_server /home/igor # ebtables -L; iptables -S; nft list ruleset
The kernel doesn't support the ebtables 'filter' table.

what about the rest of the ports?

will try and report.

static tcpdump should do the trick imho.

currently I use static ip and I can ssh to the streamer from all machines on the network.
