Re: [Xen-users] Using host network interface

How can i use host only interface. Currently Xen is configured to NAT with dhcp. IPs are being assigned through DHCP. I want to directly use host interface eth0 where i could configure any IP to communicate with local or public network.

Alongside or instead of routed/NAT mode ?

If instead of, then define a bridge in Dom0 (using whatever network config the OS supports), comment out the network-script in xend config, and set the VIF script to bridge. Your guests will now be connected to a virtual switch - just as if you had a bare metal machine and plugged it into a switch on your outside network.
