The server must be able to send DHCP packets to its own virtual interface.

KVM should be using a virtual interface for the NAT domnains. Look what is the address range and add it to your iptables configuration.

$  sudo route -n
...   U     0      0        0 virbr0

So it is , netmask 24. Add it to your iptables configuration:

sudo iptables -A INPUT -s -p udp --dport 67:68 --sport 67:68 -j ACCEPT

To confirm that the configuration was updated, check it with:

sudo iptables -S


The frontend has a secret passphrase that should be changed. Cookies and user session rely on this. You can have many passphrases that get rotated to improve security even more.

Change the file /etc/rvd_front.conf line secrets like this:

, secrets => ['my secret 1', 'my secret 2' ]
