Are you able to configure the interface of the virtual machine (with
ifconfig) or do you receive some error, like "SIOCSIFFLAGS: Permission
denied"? One of the my frequent mistakes is forgetting to give
read/write permissions to the /dev/net/tun device on the host machine
(chmod 0666 /dev/net/tun).. I must precise that I do not use netkit
but directly UML..
