Re: [Xen-users] Re: yet another networking question

It seems to be pure virtual networking e.g. where a physical NIC is not
involved at all. My example is that I have several machines in a "dmz" on my
host that only communicate with other virtual machines.  Those machines are not
able to talk to each other straight out of the box because of the checksum
issue.  Ping works, but ping is a special case.  So it makes sense when you
think about it but something needs a little tweak to better determine when
checksum offloading is available and when it isn't. For now we have a work
around (ethtool or the patch).

The place where you made your stand never mattered,
only that you were there... and still on your feet

Apparently that's broken in the current stable xen 3.

Networking works for me on Xen 3 without switching off checksumming. I
did not even knew ethtook.
