Re: [Xen-users] Routed Xen networking


I managed to get this working by dropping the type=ioemu from the vif tuple, and building an ISO with the PV drivers. My issue turned out to be a problem with the emulated NIC.

Have you enabled the sysctls mentioned in
http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Host_Configuration/Networking#Routing ?

Since you are running a windows guest, do you have PV drivers installed?
Or if not then is there a vif4.0-emu device in dom0 which isn't being

If none of that produces any success then my next step would be
traceroute or mtr to see where the pings were actually going, maybe a
spot of tcpdump too.
