I'm new to Xen. I've read the doc and browse the archives but I could not find a solution to my problem:

I would like my domains to see the network my host is connected to.

my config :
- I copied ttylinux-xen from the xen examples to ttylinux-xenM1 and ttylinux-xenM2.
- I created a configM1 file similar to the one given in section 3.3 of the doc :
kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6-xenU"
memory = 64
name = "ttylinuxM1"
ip = ""
disk = [ 'file:/home/codato/Xen/Ttylinux/ttylinux-xenM1,sda1,w' ]
root = "/dev/sda1 ro"
- I created a config M2 file similar except M1 is M2 and IP address is
- I start xend
- I create domain M1: xm create configM1 -c
- I create domain M2: xm create configM2 -c

From domain M1, I can ping But how can I communicate with the host or the network my host is connected to?

On the host, I've try to add "route add dev vif7.0" but it complains this interface does not exist (yet it is listed by ifconfig -a).

I hope someone could help me or point me to usefull resources.
Thank you
