ifcfg-macvtap - MACVTAP interface configuration
To setup a macvtap interface you need a configuration file that contains atleast the mandatory
- variable with the real interface used for the macvtap virtual interface.
It may contain the optional
- variable that may be set to one of the following supported modes: "private", "vepa","bridge" and "pass-through/passthru". The default mode is "vepa".
You may also use the
- variable to set the "nopromisc" flag. By default, this flag is not set.
An ifcfg- file for the interface specified by MACVTAP_DEVICE mustalso be provided. In the most basic case, it should at least containSTARTMODE='auto'.
For use as an interface that is passed to a virtualized guest, manualconfigurations of IP and route for the macvtap device on the host arenot needed. See also man ifcfg and man routes for details.
