Re: [libvirt] Network Filter not working on RHEL-6



Thank you very much. It worked like a charm although I couldn't find that message in the libvirtd.log.

Should I enable all three in /etc/sysctl.conf
net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-ip6tables = 1 
net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-iptables = 1
net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-arptables = 1


Thanks.
