    Networking Structure for VM Host

    Hello, I'm currently running a server based on FreeBSD 10.3. I'm using jails to separate all the running services. Since I only have one public IPv4 address, I use PF and a nginx-proxy to redirect to the specific jails inside the NAT. My plan is to use 11.0 and it's enhanced bhyve features to...

    Having all bhyve guests on the same network

    Hello, How can I configure my network to achieve this? Probably it's simple, but I couldn't figure it out. The simplest case is when I have 2 bhyve guests, one on tap0, another on on tap1. I'd like those guest OS's to see each other having IP addresses in the same range. Thanks!

    Intel I210 NIC and bhyve

    Hello, It seems that hardware offloading doesnt work with Intel I210 NIC and bhyve. I had to disable the hardware offloading to make the host talk to the vm via ssh. Further details are here. Is this a known limitation of this NIC? Thanks

    OpenStack on bhyve?

    Just reading about OpenStack, in particular about supported hypervisors. Is there any technical reason why bhyve isn't on that list or is it just a matter of it being too young, immature or a lack of time/interest from the community?
