The -redir option only works with user mode SLIRP networking which is 
unreliable & unstable at best, and has very serious flaws on 64-bit
platforms. We are aiming to provide the ability to run QEMU unprivileged
without using the user mode SLIRP networking junk for networking. The only
seriously usable networking options are briding or the libvirt NAT based
networking
