I am running Ubuntu virtual machine using QEMU.

Right now I am facing a problem how to send IP packets from the host OS to the guest OS over some virtual network interface throw QEMU.

Virtual Machine doesn't need to be connected to the Internet over the host OS.

Any idea how to establish communication between the host and guest OS?

I'd probably start by reading the QEMU Networking documentation. –  msw May 8 '13 at 14:01
