Re: [Xen-users] Xen 3.1 networking questions
I just found this guide:
But it is not working for me. I searched now 2 days but there is no real
documentation of networking in xen 3.1 out there. I would like to enable
NAT networking and dhcp on the privates LAN side. But I don't know how
to setup xen-NAT at all and how to enable xen-dhcp. Isn't there any
documentation? Is xen open source still in development or stopped it
after citrix bought xensource?

after hours of testing my last hope is the mailinglist. I have got a
root server (www.1und1.com) and I just installed debian etch amd64 on
it. I maanged to compile xen 3.1 from source and also my 1st HVM
virtual guest is running fine (Windows 2003). But 1und1 uses a absolut
strange network setup I have never seen before and I do not understand
why it is working at all!?!
These are the settings the root Sever is getting with DHCP (and they

the route is also set with dhcp but after updating from sarge to etch
i had to use a trick to set the route because dhcp3 did no more use
the modified (by 1und1) dhcp script.
So this is my /etc/network/interfaces:
auto lo eth0
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
up ip route add 10.255.255.1/32 dev eth0
up ip route add default via 10.255.255.1
iface eth0:0 inet static
# xxx = always the same number (yes ip and broadcast are equal...)
I am abolute no network specialist but I never thought a netmask of
255.255.255.255 is valid and a client can communicate without a
reachable gateway... but it works...
I installed my 1st HVM guest and tried to setup networking. Bridging
does not work because windows does not allow those strange network
settings, so I think NAT would be the solution, wouldn't it? But I did
not find any documentation about how to setup NAT with Xen 3.1.
What IP do I have to setup at my dom0?
Can I use eth0:x to set it up?
Do I have to add any IP settings to my guest config:
vif = [ 'type=ioemu, bridge=xenbr0' ] ?
Should I use DHCP on the private LAN or static IPs?
Can I use a 192.168.x.x network or do I have to use 10.x.x.x (I red
Do you have any good links about NAT and Xen 3.1?
Many thanks for your help!
