Inucs VM: Obtain IP from Network?


I am attempting to get a Windows 2022 Server up and running under Incus. So far, so good, except that I would like to give it an ip that is within the same network as all my other devices.

In the past, I could do this with containers (see: Simos Blog). How would I go about it with a VM?

Thank you!

Routed isn’t really an option with VMs right now as it needs control over the network inside of the instance.

So your main options are either to set your machine up to have a bridge you can attach to, or use macvlan. Both of those options would require wired connectivity though as wifi does not allow for multiple MAC addresses on the same client.

@Scott_T explains it quite well on bridged and macvlan setup :
