Re: [Xen-users] XEN Bridged Network and NAT

Hello Christophe,

thanks for your reply. I'm using the standard xen kernel which comes with debian lenny on dom0 and domu.
Its 2.6.26-2-xen-amd64 #1 SMP in the moment.
I don't know if this version applies to the hacks you mentioned.

Hi Michael,

What Dom0 kernel are you using?  The old non-pvops Dom0 kernel (unless
it has changed in the meantime) had some non-standard hacks to avoid
unnecessary checksumming of the packets between the Dom0 and DomU's.
These hacks unfortunately broke Dom0 NAT.  I believe the problem was
that outgoing packets (the packets leaving Dom0 on an actual network
card) had the wrong checksum or something like that.
