Re: [Qemu-discuss] No IP in net interface when using socket netdev

Thanks for the help, but I don't see how I can assign a static IP to it in
the command line, neither the '-netdev socket' option or the '-device
e1000e' option allows a ip property. I tried to manually assign one inside
guest VM, but it seems not working, I still can't ping each other, they are
in the same subnet.
