[Qemu-devel] Re: question on samba/linux_guest

it was silly of me to discard the qemu-tap stuff actually... Unless I use
tunneling, I cannot access the guest from the windows host directly
using an IP address. And windows refuses to mount something like

The problem disappears if I use tap-win32...

So now I can do some linux specific stuff inside the guest (kernel compilation)
and get the result out of the guest filesystem using samba (launch
a parallel session of qemu on windows using the freshly compiled kernel)

If someone one day finds a way to do it using slirp/user mode, I'm
still interested... :)

I would like to do the opposite: having a Windows host and a properly configured

of the linux guest.

I can already do this using vmplayer in host-only network mode, similar to the
network user mode over slirp. The problem is that I do not know what IP address
I should use when mapping the disk inside windows host.

Indeed, the IP address inside the qemu guest is something like, but
I cannot access it from XP. I tried to fiddle with "-redir" options, but it
refuses to redirect port 445 (though I'm admin on XP).

Has anyone managed this yet ? If so, please share the command lines.
It must be possible, but maybe not easy.

Just a precision: I want to use the slirp mode only, not the tap-win32 stuff.
Thanks in advance
