Solved Host to jail networking with vimage

I've got a bridge1 with several jails' interfaces as members (vnet1:1, vnet1:2, etc) these can pass packets between each other.

There's a bhyve(8) instance on the host using tap0 which I've added to bridge1, this tunnel is not able to connect to any of the jail(8) vnet(9) interfaces.

  1. Is this to be expected given the virtualized networking?
  2. Is there some other way to get host-to-jail networking with VIMAGE enabled?
  3. Or alternatively, can I run bhyve(8) inside one of the jails?


Somehow sysctl wasn't set although I thought it was.

Working fine now.
