slirpvde - Virtual Distributed Ethernet-Slirp interface


slirpvde OPTIONS


slirpvde is a slirp interface for a VDE network.

Slirpvde connects all the units (virtual or real machines) to the network of the host where slirpvde runs as it were a NAT/Masquerading router. The default route is the node 2 ( in the default network configuration) and DNS is re-mapped in node 3 (

Slirpvde runs using standard user privileges (no need for root access): all the connections are re-generated by slirpvde itself.

IPv4 only. IPv6 is still unsupported (will be supported when slirpvde will be rewritten using the LWIPv6 network stack).


-s, --sock, --socket, --vdesock, --unix directory
specify the VDE switch directory (default /var/run/vde.ctl).
-p, --pidfile filename
specify the name of the file which contains the PID of slirpvde.
-g, --group group
specify the UNIX group for the VDE communication socket.
-m, --mod mode
specify the octal UNIX permissions for the VDE communication socket.
-d, --daemon
detach from terminal and run slirpvde in background.
-D, --dhcp
turn on the DHCP server for the network autoconfiguration of all the units connected to the VDE.
-n, --network address
specify the network address (default
-L port:vde_host:vde_hostport
specifyes a port redirection. All the packet received by the host running slirpvde at port port will be forwarded to vde_host at port vde_hostport.
-X vde_host[:display.[screen]]i
redirect a X window screen of a virtual machine. Slirpvde gets the first unused X display on the host running slirpvde and redirects all the requests to vde_host. display and screen] must be specified when different from :0.0.
-x port:unix_socket_path]
redirect a port of the virtual router (usually to a unix stream socket. It is used for example to redirect a X display of the hosting computer on the virtual network. e.g. -x6000:/tmp/.X11-unix/X0. (A suitable xhost configuration is needed (e.g. 'xhost local:').


Virtual Distributed Ethernet is not related in any way with ("Verband der Elektrotechnik, Elektronik und Informationstechnik" i.e. the German "Association for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies").
