I have just installed Xen and got a virtual machine up and running. Everything seems to work fine, except that I get strange network performance in the virtual machine. When I upload data, I get good speeds, around 6-7 MB/s which I think is ok on a 100 Mbit network. When I download however, I only get ~300 KB/s. On the host machine I get good speed in both direction. The version of Xen is 2.0.7, and I have tried both the binary release and built my own kernel, with the same results. The host OS is debian sarge. I really have no idea where to look for a solution, so every advice I can get is highly appreciated.

Best regards,
