Installing QEMU on Windows w/ Internet Access12/24/2009 02:25 PM
This was far more painful than it needed to be after following this tutorial so thought I'd mention that last step that was missing for me. The local LAN connection and the OpenVPN TAP driver connection have to be bridged. Your network connections should look like this after you're done:
Those two connections are bridged and you set your host system's bridge IP address in the Network Bridge's properties. Then when starting QEMU, you give it these parameters:
-net nic -net "tap,ifname=OpenVPN Connection"
And in your QEMU VM, you set an IP address in the same subnet as your host IP (e.g., 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.10). You tell the QEMU VM to use the same gateway and DNS server as your host machine as well.
I needed QEMU to run an ARM emulator running Debian to compile apps for a TS-7260 board.
