libpcap updates for Qemu 0.9.0

I decided to update my pcap patches for Qemu 0.9.0 . Now I know that for the majority of people the user mode NAT works fine for them, or they are on a platform where they enjoy playing tun/tap games. However tun/tap aren’t available on every platform. That and some of us run things like Novell Netware.

The patches are as follows:

The patch for plain QEMU

And adding support for NeXTSTEP

Now how robust is this? Well I have transfered about a gigabyte on a VM on the internet with this thing. The machine in question is a windows 2003 server running this Qemu as a service. http://tiger.vaxenrule.com/ . It’s hosting it’s own Apache, and it seems somewhat responsive to me.

I can provide exe’s if anyone is interested just contact me via here…

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!
