AW: [SPAM] [Xen-users] Xen networking problem

When you use broadcom network cards, try the Broadcom drivers instead of the
linux kernel driver.


When you have other network cards, look at this:


or so. You have to make ethtool -K nicX tx off
while nicX is your network adapter or bridge.

Google for that a little more. You can adjust you scripts to do that
automatically on startup.

Betreff: [SPAM] [Xen-users] Xen networking problem


I've been googling around for several days now, but with no luck. I'm hoping

someone here might be able to help me out...

I've installed and run Xen 3.0.4 (I need this specific version) with no 
problem, and the guests run smoothly; the only problem is that I have never 
been able to get the guests to ping the host (Dom0), or vice versa. I cannot

access the internet from the guests, but it works fine on Dom0.

I have only one NIC on Dom0 (eth0) that connects to the internet. Right now
just trying to get the guests and Dom0 to recognize each other, let alone 
guests' internet access.

I've tried network-bridge, network-nat, network-route, and even some custom 
scripts such as network-private 
network-virtual (http://en.opensuse.org/Xen3_and_a_Virtual_Network), with no

success. I've tried all I could, but here's one thing I believe is the
When I run ifconfig on Dom0, I see this on the guest's vif:

vif2.0    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr FE:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF
           UP BROADCAST NOARP  MTU:1500  Metric:1
           RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
           TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
           collisions:0 txqueuelen:32
           RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

As you can see, I don't see a "RUNNING" flag on guests' vifs.
Can anyone please help me out? I'm completely lost here.

If it helps, I'm running Ubuntu 7.04, and I'm experimenting with an HVM 
guest (Windows XP).
