I have a physical machine hosting 3 virtual machines and im using virtualbox. 2 VM's are simple machines that just need to ping each other (lets call them G1 and G2) whereas the 3rd VM has openvswitch (lets call it VM_OVS).
Imagine this scenario:
I'd like that G1 and G2 ping each other using the openvswitch bridge residing in the VM_OVS. All the machines can be on the same subnet, there is no need for them to have access to the internt. I just need to test openvswitch and see if it works properly in this scenario.
What network scenario am i setting up? And more specifically how do i set it up? What Virtualbox settings do i need.
I have done an experiment similar to this but with 2 guests communicating with each other through openvswitch residing on the host. So you can see the the scenario described above is slightly different. Thanks a lot!
