    I'd like to make a virtual 'wan'. Is this possible?

    ok, sorry for not being as clear as I thought I was.

    By 'virtual wan' I mean to pretend I have a wide area network in a box. An 'office' here, an 'office' there ...., coupled by routers with 2 nics. Each 'office' in its own network.

    This would be a great tool to test network behaviour in a contained test environment.

    Hence my question about 2 nics per vm.

    I hope I made myself clear now :)

    Next version will include support for 10 bridges and arbitrary number of network cards (currently kvm only). So i guess you can build a virtual wan.
