I have a ubuntu 13.04 server. On it I have a virtual machine (kvm), with Windows 2008 on it.
I have configured /etc/network/interfaces to have a bridged connection to the machine, so I am able to access my MS SQL databases on said virtual machine.
However, I am still not able to connect to it. What am I doing wrong?
Here is my current /etc/network/interfaces:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface auto br0 iface br0 inet static address 192.168.2.98 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.2.0 broadcast 192.168.2.255 gateway 192.168.2.1 bridge_ports eth0 bridge_stp off bridge_maxwait 5
I notice when I shell into the server that this IP is not listed, but a virbr0 interface with a different IP address is listed.
Note, I have the virtual machine configured to use the bridge. The virtual machine comes up with 192.168.2.83 for an IP address, however, when I try to ping it from the host, nothing comes back as well. (if this helps any)
