Well, no it doens't work too well. simh uses /dev/bpf to get or inject
packets on the network, with the bad side effect that it can't communicate
with his host (I had to patch 1.6 to get this working) If it uses a ethfoo
device, you can either bridge it to the real ethernet device, or NAT it, or
route it, ... much more flexible.
