Re: [vfio-users] connect bridge without connection to the local network?

So my cpl died last night, thus i cannot connect to my freebox and my local network (neither internet obviously).

From what i understand of a bridge it should be possible to still have a connection between my host and my guest even though i don't have a cable plug in my ethernet card since it is a software bridge?

I have a samba share on my zfs which contains all my datas and i want to be able to access them during the few days i will spend without connection  (i need some time to buy a new cpl).

Apparently i would need to use static ip for this?
I modify my netctl bridge file according to this though i don't understand everything.
Seems my ip adress would be, what is the /24 for? and can i put just anything for the ip adress?
This file is enough for my vm to boot with the bridge on though synergy fails to launch (cannot find a local network).

I assume the ideal solution would be to create a virtual local network with my guest and host only though i don't know what will happen when the internet will come back.

I use dhcp according to my bridge file in netctl
I don't even know what a dhcp server is, my knoledge in network is close to none actually.
So if i use static ip i can solve this?

Hi Thibaut,

Can you describe in more details of how do you want to do with your guest and what is your issue? It seemed that I failed to understand the issues that you are facing here.

Best regards,
