from looking at the scripts it seems the bridging interface lacks an IP
means instead of eth0 you have to use the bridging interface as
for communication now. Then you should be able to connect from the "outside"
to your qemu virtualized system as well as the host computer.



PS: I found to be enlightening
about the
whole bridging issue itself; you can skip the Gentoo specific stuff
which tails
the more generic description of bridging on Linux.
