Network Bridge Setup
In order for the VMs to be on our LAN, a bridge must be set up as follows:
Manual set up:
1) Create new bridge iterface "brctl addbr <bridge_name>"
2) Add existing interface to bridge "brctl addif <bridge_name> <iterface_name>"
3) Bring bridge up "ifconfig <bridge_name> up"
Bridging interfaces will cause the interfaces used to not have an ip address even if they are up. The bridge interface will contain an ip address.
