It says here, "Forwarding: NAT to any physical device".

What's the difference between NAT and host-only?
I assume that in this context NAT means Network Address Translation,
i.e. the host acts as a firewall and does NATting.
The software I'm using is libvirt 0.7.0.
I also see that from a VM I can ping the host's virtual interface, i.e.
the IF on the virtual network. I can also ping its physical IF, which
is on a separate network.
