You could also use the SLiRP patch. That is what I use. You can't access
the simulated system as a separate IP address with it (although you can
redirect ports by patching the source), and you can't use non-IP-based
protocols like DECnet, but for simple guest-to-host networking, it is
much better than PCAP. Also, it doesn't require privileges.
