What inner network? There is nothing to suggest the creation of such a
thing in any of your configuration details which you have posted.

Neither Xen nor the Xen tools will create networks or subnets by
themselves (unless perhaps you were using the vif-nat configuration, but
your config files say you are not).

Something in your environment is creating this network -- the most
likely candidate is a DHCP server somewhere.

That seems tautological to me.

The gateway is provided either by a DHCP server or by the static
networking configuration *within* the guest. Neither Xen nor the Xen
tools will create or configure a gateway for the guest on their own.

AFAICT none of the issues that you are experiencing are Xen issues, they
appear to relate to the way your network infrastructure is configured,
or perhaps to misunderstanding that configuration. I would recommend
that you find someone locally who is familiar with troubleshooting
network configuration issues and ask them to help you.

Thank you so much for your advice and help! I will find someone locally to see the issue and update you when I get it fixed.
