[mininet-discuss] Connecitng to a Mininet host from a physical machine

   I'll assume that MiniNet is running on P and not a VM inside P for 
now.  This makes a big difference.

   From a purist sense, I think you will need something like this.

   P-eth1    P-eth0(
     |           |

     If you don't have a eth1 available on P, then you might need be a 
little more creative and create a bridge so both P and Mininet can share 
the same eth0.

         tap0   br0(10.0..15)
          |           |

   Now if your Mininet is in a VM, then it is a bit easier.  Just follow 
what I did 
but instead of creating a 'NAT' interface in VirtualBox, set it to 
Bridge mode.
