NetworkManager substitute on CentOS

+2 votes

I'm investigating how to setup KVM so I can run VMs without having to use VirtualBox or VMware, or etc.

All the HOWTOs I see tell you to disable NM.

I use NM to manage VPN clients that I use for remote access to my office, among other places.

How would I manage those VPN clients if I didn't use NM? I haven't found any commands that appear to be suited to that purpose.

KVM/libvirt works just fine with NM enabled.

Just "yum install qemu-kvm libvirt virt-manager", start libvirtd and fire-up virt-manager, you're set.

I m using centos 7 in laptop and kvm as virtualization to run windows guest VM. Currently I m using NAT as default setting for guest VM, my internet is fine but can't resolve some domains and sites.

So want to come on bridge.

As per my understanding bridge can not work while device is managed by NetworkManager.

Is there any utility or tool to use to scan wireless device in network and connect them as I want to stop to use Networkmanager to use laptop wireless interface as bridge for my guest VM.

I have a complex firewall setup running on an older version of Fedora, and I'd like to upgrade to RHEL7 or recent Fedora. Unfortunately, I can't really do what I need using firewalld, so two questions:

1: Has anyone done this and were there any serious gotcha's?

2: Is it as easy as removing firewalld and installing networkmanager with yum?

This setup uses two (soon three) ISP connections, any of which can be used as default, two secure internal networks, and one DMZ for servers. Some connections must be forced out via a defined ISP, and since Linux doesn't source route like BSD, I can't just set the source IP and have the packet go out the right
interface, hoops must be jumped.

Any experience to share?

How wireless signal strength (as displayed by the network-manager applet) is calculated. There is a percentage reported: what does this percent mean and where does NetworkManager get its values from?

I've just installed Fedora 18 X86-64. I disabled and uninstalled networkmanager and use the standard networking stuff which seems to use dhclient. I'm using a standard ethernet connection.

So I need to do two things. Feel free to tell me to RTFM if you can provide a link!

1.How do I enable pre-pending of nameservers? I want to use dnsmasq to cache DNS requests so I need to add to the top of resolv.conf. Google searchs take me to the Arch Wiki. I can't seem to
find a dhclient.conf file anywhere in /etc.

2.How do I assign a zone in firewalld to my connection? I want to be able to open ports for bittorrent and XMPP jingle voice/video. The firewalld wiki on the Fedora site doesn't seem to be able to answer my
