Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 432236
No simple explanation how to get ssh, http, ftp and other connections between guest and host.

From the current documentation is near impossible to figure out, how one may
get the shh (ssh -X) shell access to the virtual guest from the host, or how
the host may reach the http server that runs in the virtual guest. Ideally,
such a simple things must be easy to do from GUI, but at least the
virtualization guide should include the simple examples how to
1. Ping the guest from the host using some IP address. This opens way to
experiment with various servers.
2. ssh -X to the guest from the host. For Linux guests, the X can replace the
virtual GUI console which currently seems much less mature.
Sounds like we need to add a section on examples of guest networking bridging.
Moving the severity from urgent to low for 5.2
Hi Chris, will need pointer to the fix
There is a note in the Network device section and a complete list of ports in the firewall configuration section. The use cases described in the original post should be covered by the virtualization guide from build 80 onwards.
