Virtual LAN setup/installation in Debian Jessie

Hello All;

I have a fresh installation of x86 32 bit Debian Jessie on my PC and I am trying to find out how to setup

The ‘virtual’ LAN support that is available for windows machines.

The “Getting Started” page on the net refers to a page that is 10yrys old L so I am hoping someone can help here.

Given the number of people who cross-compile on x86 machines, I assume there must be a solution.

The system is now ‘embedded’ and I don’t have easy access to the 10/100 LAN connector.

My fallback plan is to use a wireless adapter, but this solution is not idea for a number of reasons …
