The easiest thing to do is to start the Xvnc server and then
connect in using vnc over the virtual network.

Alternatively, you could log in via ssh (with X forwarding) and
start an Xnest server.

In domain 0 you should be able to do an 'ifconfig' and see a
'vif1.0' virtual network backend interface.

Check that the bridge stuff is setup OK by doing a 'brctl show xen-br0'

Next, bring up the console of the other domain e.g. 'xm console
domain1' login, and use ifconfig to check you've got the IP address and
routing setup OK.
