Hi All

I know Networking seems to be the biggest problem discussed on the list, but I'm have seriously difficulties.

I've a 2.6.23.14 kernel on the host and also a 2.6.23.14 UML kernel.  UML boots correctly, although I don't have the SKAS3 patch.

When I try and setup networking on host I get the following error;

host:/home/brendan/linux-2.6.23.14-uml # tunctl -u root -t host-uml
Set 'host-uml' persistent and owned by uid 0
host:/home/brendan/linux-2.6.23.14-uml # brctl addbr uml-bridge

Any help with this would be greatly appriciated, I'm working on a college thesis using UML, but I'm ready to pull my hair out on this one.  I also own the Jeff Dike book (which is where I got the above from) so any references to that are OK also.

Thanks in advance
