[Netkit.users] Tap problem in netkit [SOLVED]

I did the tests: even with different addresses the netkit had the same
error: no ip address in nk_tap_silvio. I used for real interface the
IP address, and the recursive machine (virtual) the IP
address (I used the command vstart --clean-all before).

In this case, I configured the interface nk_tap_silvio manually with After the command, the virtual machine accessed the
internet normally.

All the time, the netkit appear no errors (even when asked the root
password for the "vstart recursivo
--eth0=tap,," command).

When I added the the line
"recursivo[0]=tap,," in my lab.conf, it show
a warning::

Warning: interface eth0 for virtual machine "recursivo" is defined
multiple times.
Only preserving definition "recursivo[0]="collision1"".
Starting "recursivo" with options "-q --eth0 "collision1" --mem=32

In file recursivo.startup (recursivo = recursive in portuguese), I
only defined this configurations:

/sbin/ifconfig eth0 netmask broadcast ## 'collision1' collision domain ##
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 up ## 'collision1' collision domain ##
/etc/init.d/bind start

After, I commented the first line "/sbin/ifconfig eth0... ".

I'm wrote for you more one time because maybe be your interest to
solve this (possible) problem. My virtual machine is connected in
internet now :)

Thank you by your patience, and I will divulgate your tool in my
university (I'm a teacher too, in graduation - Quality of Service
discipline). :)
