#StackBounty: #networking #dhcp #windows-xp #qemu How to make Windows guest running on qemu/kvm obtain IP address from physical router …

Bounty: 50

I am running Windows XP as a guest on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with qemu/kvm.
I want to use this Windows instance to manage my CCTV IP camera which uses ActiveX applets.

I need this Windows XP to get IP from the same subnetwork as IP camera is.
How can I configure this Virtual Machine using Virtual Machine Manager?

I use a laptop, so my main connection is WiFi (inteface name wlp2s0).

In the /etc/netplan/01-network-manager-all.yaml I have

# Let NetworkManager manage all devices on this system
network:
  version: 2
  renderer: NetworkManager

And if I edit the content of my /etc/network/interfaces I get no connection to the internet (laptop does not bring up the WiFi connection)

I tried this tutorial without any success

Then I tried this one. Here is said "Then add the Ethernet interface as a port in the bridge…" and I noticed that nmcli command can be passed type argument. I read help about that argument and I managed to pass wifi ssid MYSSID arguments to configure that bridge with my WiFi connection.

So I managed to pull these commands:

sudo nmcli conn add type bridge con-name br0 ifname br0
sudo nmcli conn add type wifi ssid MYSSID slave-type bridge con-name bridge-br0 ifname enp1s0 master br0

In the second one I changed ethernet to wifi ssid

sudo nmcli conn show --active
sudo nmcli conn up br0

Then the tutorial says I need to put down the ethernet connection – so I thought that in my case I need to put down wifi connection.

How come this should work? I want my laptop to have a connection and my bridged virtual guest operating system to have one.

When I issue ip a the br0 connection does not have an IP address from DHCP.

If I bring up WiFi connection no new IP address shows up on the bridge interface (ip a)
