Your default route for your 82.x network is a 10.x address?  What is the subnet 
mask of that 82.x

The place where you made your stand never mattered,
only that you were there... and still on your feet

I have a dedicated server with 1and1.co.uk. Worst mistake i made. But i've 
committed to
this now.
What i have is a dedicated server with centos 4.2 installed.

I install Xen 3.0 from the redhat installer. it installs fine. I boot into xen. 
But i
loose my internet connection.

It seems 1and1 drops my network whenever the switch sees a MAC address other 
then my
eth0's MAC address. So bridge network is not possible.

I did try network-route and it boots up fine. I still have my internet 
connection. But
the problem is my IP's.

It seems 1and1 won't sell me a subnet of IP's. When i want an ip they will give 
me a
random ip. They are not continious range. So thats another problem.

The problem with network-route is that there is no documentation (atleast i 
find any). There are some information in the mailing lists.

What i want is for each domU's to have their own public IP's. i want to install 
firewall in dom0 and block everything except ssh.
I tried shorewall.

i can create an alias interface with an IP that i own.

Since there isn't much howto's on network-route i don't exactly know what 
should go in
each domU's configs. I want to specify an IP for each domU. I also want to set 

my network is a bit strange. My IP is for dom0. but the gateway is the netmask is
This works for dom0.

But when i try to add the default gatway to on one of the domU i 
network is unreachable.

I really don't know what to do here.
I would like to be able to run few domU's.
I would appreciate any help.
Thank you.
