Umm.... That's how it was intended to *not* work :-P. The whole point of the self-managed libvirt virtual networks is to setup a separate subnet that has all traffic routed via IP to the physical network. I'm impressed you've found a hack that works for you[*], but just be prepared to "pick up the pieces" if it breaks :-)
This is a lab setup. It only has to work for a few days.
(I hope you've removed the DHCP service, DNS service, and for that matter even the IP address from the libvirt network definition. Also, is the host ethernet being used (i.e. does it have an IP address) prior to attaching it to the bridge? Normally when an ethernet is attached to a bridge, its IP configuration is moved to the bridge device, and the ethernet has no IP. I'm not sure what kind of connectivity oddities would show up if you left the IP address on the ethernet itself)
Actually, the physical interface is connected to a VLAN that I'm using extend the existing virtual environment to some physical machines, so I want to leave the virtual network otherwise unchanged, but have the ability to add physical machines to the virtual network (if that makes sense). -- ======================================================================== Google Where SkyNet meets Idiocracy ========================================================================
