You need to provide some examples, as your earlier explanation is
somewhat confusing.

Here's an example though. Let's say you have three different IP
address available,,102,and 103, netmask
All these IPs use gateway as gateway (as they're on the
same network) and as DNS. Setting this is easy.

First pick one IP you want to use in dom0. Say Put it
on eth0, and use xen's default network bridge script. You should end
up with a bridge called eth0 or xenbr0 (depends on your xen version).

Next create two domUs using the xenbr0 bridge, assign them each one of
the remaining IPs ( and Use the same DNS
and gateway as you do on dom0.

That should be it.
