I have a server running KVM. Inside KVM, I have many virtual machines. The host and VMs all connect to OpenWRT LAN using a physical cable. I would like only one VM's traffic not to be part of the LAN but instead be pushed into the WIFI mesh.
Q1: Is it possible to push only some traffic into the WIFI mesh (this VM's MAC address) while using a single cable? I blindly guess it has something to do with NAT or traffic tags / rules but need some more pointers...
Q2: Can I make this special VM use the WIFI mesh's DHCP server to get an IP address?
The server only has an IP address from the LAN. I want only a single VM to have a MESH address. If it helps I can give the signal VM both a LAN and a MESH address but prefer it have only a MESH address.
Oh it is a bridge device. I was assuming it one of these three; mac vlan, VLAN (802.1q), VLAN (802.1ad). Is there a page that explains the differences between the these three and a bridge device with some VLAN options set? Also is there page that explains mac vlan the four mode? I especially would like to learn more about MAC LAN mode of Bridge (Support direct communication between MAC VLANs) vs bridge device
Thanks for all your help. I reread what you said and realized I got my self messed up. I was thinking there needs to be at least two bridges. I will experiment but I think you solved it. The two links are very help.
