Hi,

I have been exploring DPDK 19.xx for a firewall use case demo. Over the
last few weeks I was able to understand how to run testpmd, dpdk-pdump,
basicfwd. I was able to build DPDK, compile examples and bind the DPDK
drivers to NIC interfaces as well using dpdk-setup.sh.

I struggle to test DPDK applications as my laptop NIC is not supported by
DPDK. Then I used a VMware workstation player where host OS is Windows10
and guest OS is Ubuntu 16.xx. In VM I get e1000 (  Intel Corporation 82540EM)
as ethernet controller.

I get I/O error when I try to run DPDK applications as there is known
limitation on using  Intel Corporation 82540EM based on one of the
references.
Is there way to change e1000-82540EM into other supported NIC in vm player ?

I also read about TAP interface. Not sure how to use it.

I  have done binding NIC with DPDK drivers. But I lack DPDK supported
physical NIC.

I would like to test sample DPDK applications but not sure to bring right
NIC.

Would be great if someone provides guidance so that I can run sample
application ip-pipeline and modify later for firewall.

Thanks,
B. Vijayakumar Athithan
