Cloudmin Networking IP

Hi There,

So my plan is as follows:

                                                VM(Additional IP) 
Host Dedicated Machine (Has Main IP)  ------->
                                                VM (Additional IP)

Now I get to the part if I create a local bridge network using 192.168.1.0 and then assign 192.168.1.1 using that bridge interface.

However how do I add my additional ip to the VM? When I add it as a bridge to the Host Machine then it cannot be added to the VM as it says it already has been added.

I have been trying this for 3 days now. I am not very good at linux so a little help/guidance would be appreciated.

You should likely provide more info. Not all VM’s handle networking the same.

What VM host are you using XEN or KVM or LXC etc…

I want to say XEN is more bridge mode focused as to where KVM operates differently errr but I’m not sure 100% that’s going off of memory been at this a while myself 3days hehe that’s just a smoke and a pancake. I remember the first time I setup hehe I hadn’t used Linux other than for browsing or media centers and mythTV back in the days I had a Mandrake rig setup to learn on doing every little thing was like pulling teeth you had to build a lot of stuff and hope you could get help get it working. I had a good ole Candian dude I talked to on IRC that helped me out from time to time. Yeah those were the days when forums existed and people used them and folks connected and shared knowledge cause they could afford to pay their bills and share some of their down time. Those were the fricking days anyone who missed those days missed out on the internets true and full potential. Then along came all the internet police, internet platforms, social media, less privacy, more rules, copyright trolls, and lawsuit happy rent collectors. phpbb was live and well all over the place. There was forums for everything rather than twitter and facebook. Still haven’t picked up a facebook account everyone I tell that calls me “a smart man” for not doing so. Sorry for the memory lane trip. Just figured it’d be fun to share perspective. So I quit using Linux until about 3 odd years ago I noticed a lot has changed and things became more powerful and user friendly. What got me back on linux was actually Virtualmin oddly!

Anyways I’ll cut er off there and just say provide more info :wink:

Cloudmin will handle the allocation of the IP addresses to the guest VMs.

You need to provision the host under:

Host SystemsKVM Host Systems (in my case I use KVM)

and then you can set the IP addresses available under Network options

yes you have to create an IP pool

Would you please not refer to Nazis in such a flippant manner. It is deeply offensive.

Understandable flippant or not yeah somehow it was placed in the English language to nazifi every evil thing and really when you study history well there were some interesting things that are unknown a little dive into General Patton reveals a bit more to the story. It was interesting how civilians were labeled unarmed enemy soldiers and such. Then you have that along with the Holocaust and the current war so I get it yeah, it’s most likely something I should stop doing you make a valid point kinda hard as a GENX to override everything you grew up with as it was hammered into you. But everything can but I am also a bit weary to some degree but I also question if the new censorship campaign is good for folks as well because it too is being beaten into people’s heads and its equally dangerous it was actually how the socialist parties incrementally made the atrocities okay to commit so its a fine line I walk here. And it would be best if you too didn’t feel victimized by language. For all intents and purposes, it may just be what is needed to start the next set of atrocities :wink: even though I do not see an issue with your request on its face so I removed it and decided to go with trolls. I mean short people could take offense to that too but it has to stop somewhere. Anyhow take care I hope it made it more digestible for you I’ll attempt to refrain from it. I can be terrible with spelling, run-on sentences, and punctuation as well. Might be best to ignore my comments in many cases if these types of things do bother you. There are two types of people in this world, one who can make sense of incomplete data.

Awesome stuff :slight_smile:
