I have a MIPSEL machine running on QEMU. In order to enable networking inside my qemu MIPSEL machine, I use a bridge
First, I create the interface tap0 and bring it up. I do it as follows :-
sudo tunctl -t tap0 && sudo ifconfig tap0 up`
Next, I add
tap0 and the interface that brings in the internet connection(in this case
eth1) to the bridge.
sudo brctl addif virbr0 tap0
sudo brctl addif virbr0 eth1
Finally, I start off my QEMU machine with the flags
-net nic -net tap,ifname=tap0,script=no,downscript=no.
At this point a couple of things happen.
- I am not able to access the internet connection from my QEMU MIPS machine. It seems to be able to ping
eth1's ip address, however, it is unable to reach the internet.
- The second I add the
virbr0my host loses its ability to connect to the internet. It is able to connect to the internet only if I remove
How can I solve  and/or ?
