IBM i can Bridge which is the simplest. That's effectively the same thing as the SEA in VIOS.

IBM i can do Proxy ARP so the traffic for the guest goes through IBM i on the host. Proxy ARP is the hardest to understand!

IBM i can be a router. Here you need to set up a different IP network for the guest partitions and your external devices need to know that the host partition is acting as a router by adding routes.

Don't get me wrong, we do not have dedicated adapters for each lpar. We
have two adapters. One for each VIOS lpar. Those are virtualized to each

No VIOS here.
