Components of the VDE architecture are VDE switches (virtual counterpart of ethernet switches) and VDE cables (virtual counterpart of a crossed-cable used to connect two switches).
VDE 2 includes: - switch management both from console and from a "unix socket terminal" - VLAN 801.1q - FSTP (fast spanning tree) - distributed cable manager using a blowfish encrypted channel - wire packet filter to emulate delays and packet loss on virtual wires
Examples of VDE uses: - With VDE it is possible to create a virtual network of QEMU machines running on several real computer - VDE can be used to create tunnels (even crossing masqueraded networks) - VDE can provide mobility support
The VDE also provides bi-directional pipe command (dpipe) and remote terminal for unix sockets (unixterm).
The Debian package provides a nice extension for /etc/network/interfaces file for easy set up.
VDE for Debian ############## ifupdown usage ============== The Debian package provides an extension for iface sections in ``/etc/network/interfaces`` file: vde2-switch - | <parameters> Start TAP interface with ``vde_switch`` command which has control directory ``/var/run/vde/$IFACE.ctl``. The control directory is writable by vde2-net group. The additional parameters might be --macaddr more»
