I followed this host port forward with qemu through libvirt in user-mode networking answer to accomplish a certain task but it was only after a reboot that the ports were actually accessible. I tried restarting the domain but it did not work. What should I do to ensure that the changes take effect without restarting the host?

  • Restart the host. - or use qemu interface to do onlin modifications, which will not persist.

  • @NiKiZe, that is something I'm trying to avoid. Are you sure there is no other way around it? Aug 29, 2021 at 11:21
