Same problem on Linux.  First of all, I'm not the SIMH maintainer.
Just a (quite new) NetBSD user with VAX interests. But yes, it would
be nice to be able to bind it to a tap device, putting it into a
bridge with some local ethernet adaptor.

The code tries to list local networking devices. Maybe it's already
possible to pre-create a tap device and it'll be listed? I think I
should have a look at that at some time. But first I'll need to get a
successfully bootable VAX ISO :)

If you already have a patch, it would be nice if you'd post it. Either
here, or to the SIMH mailing list (<>, as well. I
guess they'd like it!
