* I compile QEMU from CVS with the patches from the port. Apart from a --prefix, I pass no special arguments to configure.
* In my /etc/rc.conf, I have set FreeBSD to work as a gateway by setting gateway_enable="YES".
* My guest uses the IP 192.168.1.7 on the emulated network card, the tap device on the host has IP 192.168.1.1. The only problem here is that I have been too lazy to write a network script so it's just a no-op and I always run "ifconfig tapX inet 192.168.1.1" manually whenever QEMU starts and allocates a new tap device (why is it by the way that QEMU always opens a new tap device?).
With those few steps, it all works very nicely. I should note, however, that to go on the Internet with the guest operating system, its IP must be NAT-ed somewhere on the way, which is handled by another FreeBSD box in my case.
