What is Bridging the network connection doing?

By jcwfbi ·
Ok this probably sounds like a stupid question but I created a bridge between my virtual server network connection and my actual lan connection on the computer. Now I have used nat and I have a good general idea of that. But what is the bridge doing? What does creating the bridge do exactly? Thanks anybody......

The connection goes straight from one OS to the Other

So in this case it passes data directly through the connection without the primary OS doing anything to the Data like scanning it for infections or anything similar.

So it allows the virtual server to use the physical adaptor as its own?

sharing would be a better description.

The virtual machine and virtual network card, uses the host's machines hardware. it's not really NAT where like a router, the router manipulates frames and packets.

The host machine allows a "bridge" or sharing for virtual machines to use host machine hardware.

sharing a different virtual machine and virtual network card

Connectivity is straight from the operating system to another.
So in this case, it connects directly by using data the main operating systems don't like doing anything to scan the data for infection or similar situation, sharing a different virtual machine and virtual network card.

convergence ?

by CG IT In reply to What is Bridging the netw ...

what's convergence got to do with Virtual machines?

The time it takes between learning and forwarding states is convergence for switches, the time it takes for propogating route tables in routers.

but if your using a buzz word for consolidation... [shrug....buzz word people, well we all know about them ]

besides your little link there on converged networks is simply spam... getting someone to click it to go to a web site....[bah!]
