[Xen-users] promiscous mode on all interfaces?

Hi folks,

the standard config uses bridging with promiscous mode for eth0 (understandable) and the vifs (why that?).

Does that mean that EVERY vif receives EVERY packet crossing the bridge - even those packets destined for other domains? Documentation compares bridging to "a cross over cable between virtual machine and domain0" which would then be quite wrong.

Thanks for any help to understand.
