  • Bridge (Like a Physical Network Switch)
    • One side of bridge gets IP addresses The bridge gateway would be
    • The other side is, i.e. the host IP
    • NAT Port mapping required
    • Anything connected to the bridge can communicate with each other
    • Connect directly to network, get IP address on network
    • MAC address is virtualised on the NIC - requires promiscuous mode, usually not allowed on cloud
    • High Performance (no NAT/bridge)
  • IPVLAN *
