RE: [Xen-users] Inter VM communication

My OS is Ubuntu 10.04 lts and using xen  4.0. 
I will give a try on both. However, I don't want to share. 
I will post the result.
Thank you

   I have two HVM domU ubuntu 10.04 Lts and Window XP running. I have

Simply setup an extra interface on each VM, on the same IP subnet and
they'll communicate to each other :)
i.e. something like:
ifconfig eth0:0
and then on the other VM
ifconfig eth0:0

This works, but it shares the network traffic with the same network as the existing traffic. This is possibly a security issue if the existing network is not fully trusted.

If the 2 VM's are on the same Hypervisor, and they're using a IP subnet which other hosts don't use then it doesn't get "shared".
Use VLAN if you need security :)
