Re: Can I create a VM with 2 NICs while there is only one network?



I want to implement a virutal IPS(intrusion protection system) on L2 layer,
so the input interface and the output interface should be on the same

Now I manually modify the packet vlan using OpenFlow protocol at the two
NICs, so that the loop won't happen.
