RE: [Xen-users] Xen 3.4.2 networking help

Dunno about iptables specifics - I only use Shorewall and I know it's
a limitation. But isn't "-o ethx" a device match ?
If there was a way around the limitation, I'm sure Tom Eastep would
have figured it out.
Hi Simon,
Yes, "-o ethx" is indeed a device match, but it works differently to physdev, which really only works well on fordwarded traffic (Although I think it is supposed to work on all bridged traffic)
Can you please post a link to information about this? I can't find anything on Google about this.
