Hi all,
I'm experiencing some problems in setting up a network vith Xen VMs: Xen physical machine is in a LAN with another PC and I didn't find out out to select the VM to which forwarding the packets (it seems that the broadcasted Router advertisement is received by every VMs, even if they're in a different subnetwork).How should I set up the network if I want only a VM (namely VH1) to receive the broadcasted packets from a PC in the LAN?

PC: other PC , VHi= i-th Xen VM

  VH2 ----VH1-----PC

As far as I've understood, all the  VMs must be connected to the main bridge (xenbr1 in my case): isn't this the reason whiy all the VMs receive broadcast from the LAN?
I'd like also to know how to create and use a virtual interface for a VM (if possible, only for IPv6 traffic) and if it should be someway related to a physical interface in the XEN dom0.
Thanks in advance
