    Where?
    As far as I can see there are only 3 options: NAT (default), routed, isolated.
    None of them is a "bridge"

    When I use Yast Virtualization to install KVM, it offered to setup a bridge. So I went with that.

    Thanks, but AFAICS mr tsu implied creating the network bridge device directly from within libvirt's virtual networks, which is what I meant.

    Been awhile since I've done this in vm manager,
    Nowadays I save myself the trouble and just create it using the YaST virtualization "Install Hypervisor and Tools" module.

    Found the following, complete with screenshots,
    Creating a bridge device involves creating a new network interface, this makes sense in a way because you're not actually creating a new virtual network, only the interface that forwards to the physical network.

    Any viewer should consider this only for informational purposes,
    Although a bridging bridge interface can be created this way, it's far better to just install using the YaST virtualization module and allow br0 to be created for you automatically, there is less room for error.
