H, thanks for the tips.
It is a simple selection/option in VirtualBox, a nobrainer selection.
I'll read the first link, bur the second gives a security warning, so I'll skip.

I wish there is a simple choice in virt-manager UI too.

Best Regards.

Not sure this is a virt-manager question: probably more of a general virtual networking question.

Curious: Did you have this in VirtualBox ?

 - " Typically, this is used to make both the guest and the host show up directly on the switch that the host is connected to."

.... I tried it in RHEL 8.4 (at the time) but had unworkable performance issues but later found a note about "intel_iommu=pt" at which might address that. ( the VF stuff there not supported in RHEL last I looked )

Currently I use PCI passthru to use a 2nd host NIC directly in a VM but then that only works for 1 VM so if you have an unspecified number of VMs that's not gonna work for you.
Sorry can't be of more help.

I've switched from VirtualBox to Virt Manager and I need to have virtual machines in the same subnet as the host.
How could I achieve that? I've spent all day looking at various articles on how to do that, but I could not manage to achieve it.
Is there a reliable step by step procedure?
I use a Gentoo derivative.

Thank you,
