OK, this is a bit complicated. On my host OS, when Guest1 is running, I want any incoming connections to go to guest1. So from the outside the system looks like guest1. But I still need to access the network from the host, and guests 2 and 3. Plus, if I'm remote, I need a way to get to the host from outside. And if guest1 is NOT running, then networking needs to fall back to the host, so it's not cut off.

I've figured out that guest1 needs bridged mode. But how do i configure the host and the other guests to have NAT via guest1 instead of the host? If I can do that, then I can set up a port-forward to ssh into the host. But then how to make the host take over the NIC if guest1 is not up?

  • Host solaris
  • guest1 linux (redhat)
  • guest2 win7
  • guest3 - linux (ubuntu)

Thanks for any advice,

guest owns NIC, host and other guests access via NAT
