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.

You need to define static IP for both the host and the guest. As long as you setup the same netmask (/24) and the same subnet (10.0.0.x) between the two, I think you can do fine. Have you installed libvirt? It is not mandatory, but by default libvirt installs a bridged network profile in the host (virbr0) that is contained to only between the host and the guests. You can use that bridge if you do not have access to a router/DHCP server.
