  • Thread-topic: setting up xen networking

Perhaps this is a daft question, but I’ve not used xen before today…

how do I set up the networking for a mirage xen application with xen running on by desktop ubuntu machine?


from http://www.openmirage.org/wiki/xen-boot I’ve built the mirage-www app for xen,

as per https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Xen I have set up xen on my ubuntu desktop (but with xl toolchain) and rebooted into xen, created a xenbr0 interface with bridging

I can run the vm with xl create, and I see the usual output include “Netif: add resume hook” but nothing else to do with networking.

I tried “xl network-attach www” (network-list was showing nothing before for the new domain) and that made a vif but still get no console info about whether anything is happening on the mirage network side; does something like this need to be in the www.xl file?

My xenbr0 is quite possible on the “wrong” IP running it this way ( so I tried changing www.conf to dhcp but with no output I don’t know if ; no visible action.

Fool-proof directions welcome :-)
