Then how do host's app.s will get to Internet?

I mean that DHCP of KVM gives Internet access to guest and having no
interface from host to guest, I can not reach the guest from host. Of
course, host app.s and guest's app.s - both have Internet connection,
but not host-guest connection.

We have discussed w/ You already that this is not the solution we are
looking for. :)

Now it works - regarding the permission problem, but I need the
interface (tap).

Of course I can create by root w/:

ifconfig tap0 up

route add -host dev tap0

but I want w/o root.

And even w/ root - I still can not get network working between host and
guest - having configured guest w/:

iface eth0 inet static
# dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
