I'm trying to get an ARM QEMU system out on my LAN. I tried running QEMU directly from Windows (Windows 7 x64), with success except I could not get a TAP adapter to bridge to my wireless connection. Specifically, Windows refused to bridge any of my network adapters.
So, I tried using QEMU within a Ubuntu virtual machine (which, surprisingly, turns out to be quite a bit faster, which is why I'd like to stick with it). The Ubuntu VM is bridged to my wireless connection, and works fine. I've setup a bridge within Ubuntu using a TAP device, and I believe it is setup correctly, but save for getting a DHCP address from my LAN, it won't work.
- Windows 7 x64 Host
- Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit VM
- QEMU ARM running Debian Squeeze
- Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit VM
I believe there is a routing problem, but I cannot pinpoint it.
- My LAN is setup for DHCP at 126.96.36.199/24, and the gateway is 188.8.131.52 (because I can)
- Ubuntu has the following configuration:
[Need a not-so blank line here for pre tag to work below...]

QEMU is as follows:
And my server confirms it:
tail /var/log/dnsmasq.leases 1341855255 52:54:00:12:34:56 18.104.22.168 * *
So QEMU is getting an IP address, but otherwise seems not connected:
root@arm-emu:~# ping google.com ping: unknown host google.com root@arm-emu:~# ping 22.214.171.124 From 126.96.36.199 Destination Host Unreachable
This is what I used to setup the bridge--in Ubuntu:
tunctl -t tap1 -u root brctl addbr br0 ifconfig eth1 0.0.0.0 promisc brctl addif br0 eth1 dhclient br0 brctl addif br0 tap1 ifconfig tap1 up
In QEMU, I am just using DHCP for eth0, no special configuration.
Am I doing this wrong, what with my bridged bridge connection?
