I finally got the setup working with XM, yes i know, it's deprecated and doesn't work with the stacks (cloud and open) but at least i get to familiarise myself with xen and associated concepts.

In the end, i had to use a bringing on a wired connection as bridging wlan got me into a catch 22 situation where I have to know the mac address of the VM I want to bridge but I need the network connection to setup the bridge for making sure the NAT is properly setup. I went down this route because brctl didn't work for wlan and ebtables looked promising. If anyone has successfuly done this, pls share.

For now i'll try things out and upgrade to the xcp/xapi toolstack at some point in the future.

They appear (on the surface) to be reasonable for use with the xl
tooltack (or the xm interface to the legacy xend toolstack) however you
mention "xe" which is the xapi toolstack client which is used by e.g.

xe does not use the same model for managing domains as xl and in
particular does not use configuration files in the same way.

http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Choice_of_Toolstacks describes the toolstacks
and links to additional information about each of them.

If you want to use xapi+xe then the (poorly named) xen-api@ mailing list
is where that stuff tends to get discussed. I'm sure someone there can
point you to a suitable howto or perhaps now the distinction between
xl/xe is (hopefully!) clear to you your search engine results will be
more fruitful...

With xe, I'm afraid I've no idea.
