Now I need to figure out how to do this for KVM. This appears to be more difficult than either VirtualBox or Xen, as the virt-manager doesn't create the necessary bridged devices automatically for this to work, so I am going to have to figure out how to do it manually. I have Googled for this but the instructions I found didn't work. As soon as I add the "eth0" to one of my bridge devices, regular networking for the host OS stops working. Obviously I am just missing something. I am going to have to find a tuturial somewhere on how bridging actually works in order to figure this out.
