I installed a bridge on my host , and the host can ping the internet no
But from within UML , I can not ping ; I get "unknown host" .
I start UML with linux eth0=tuntap,tap0 .
Without the bridge , I was able to get things working fine and I could
ping from within UML
as well .
What am I missing ..... ? I think I have done everything according to
documentation . I enabled MASQUERADE ....
I added default gateway from within UML ....
Anybody recognise a familiar problem ?

Looks to me like you haven't set /etc/resolv.conf correctly inside the UML.
Try to ping an IP address on your LAN, then on the internet from inside the
UML. If things still don't work, paste the output of:
- route -n
- cat /etc/resolv.conf
For bridging, you might like to check my HOWTO. You can find it at:

The first two discard much important information about Linux routing
(there are *many* things, some common in bridged configurations,
which affect routing but are not shown by `route').
