Hi All,

I have configured a domU (netdom) to connect direct to a NIC using PCI passthrough. The NIC is now hidden from dom0, and hence dom0 goes off the network. Is there any way to configure dom0 to connect to the network via netdom. How do I setup a backend driver in netdom and frontend driver in dom0 and other domUs for connecting to the network?

I have only one NIC on my host, and I am using XenServer 5.6FP1.
My netdom is a rebuilt centos kernel. I am able to connect to netdom over the network.

Thank you so much in advance!
