Hey guys, Im using a 2.6.9 guest on a 2.6.9 host to do a proof of concept
for work using zebra for bgp. I have two guests up using multicast for
their eth1 interfaces and tuntaps for their eth0 interfaces. It seems
that the only way I can get multicast to work though is if my physical
eth0 on my host machine is up and has an IP address. My tap devices show
up as being multicast capable, but if I try to use one of those, the
guests don't think that a multicast capable device is present. Likewise, if my
physical interface on my host loses its IP or if even the cable comes
unplugged, my guests cant use the multicast backend.
Is their anyway to get umls talking to each other without having to route
them (since Im using bgp between guests, I cant route) and without having
to multicast across a physical interface?
When pigs fly, they fly first class.
