Serial port and networking problems
|Reported by:||Cyberian||Owned by:|

Serial port: I got the serial port working and use GTKTerm on my Fedora 9 guest to use it as a console. As long as I do not connect/disconnect an optical drive/image it works properly. If I connect or disconnect a optical drive I don't see any output of the serial port in the terminal windows although there should be. The only way to solve the problem is to restart the the virtual machine. The serial port is configured as host-interace.
Networking: sometimes on startup the vm does not connect to the bridged host interface. I also loose the connection if I restart a suspended/hibernated vm.
