Hello everybody,

I am quite new to Xen and im running Xen on Ubuntu Dapper. I want to VNC into a VM(domU) from a machine on the local LAN. I have assigned a dummy interface so that i can use that IP address as my VM's IP. The output of ifconfig is:

sagnik@sagnik-desktop:~$ ifconfig
dummy0    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 7E:3A:16:C5:2E:91
          inet addr:  Bcast:   Mask:
          inet6 addr: fe80::7c3a:16ff:fec5:2e91/64 Scope:Link

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:272 (272.0 b)  TX bytes:272 (272.0 b)

But when i try to execute the command vncviewer and give this IP, i get an error message "tcp connection refused".

Am i going wrong in the method for assigning IPs itself ? If yes, please help me out.

Thanks for the help.
