Except I see now that at least one VM is BSD and AFAIK ethtool is a
Linux thing, so depending on which setting needs tweaking that may not

I don't know if BSD has something similar you can toggle -- I think
there is a freebsd-xen list on lists.bsd.org which might have someone
who knows if there isn't anyone here.

I think disabling offload on the vifX.Y for the BSD domain is what you
want though (so dom0 will calculate the checksum before handing over to

Maybe pfsense has an option to ignore the checksum? Really that ought to
