Hello everyone,

I have been able to get windows xp to run under a virtual machine, but i cannot get any network access.

My desktop is connected to a university network, and we are only given 1 ip address. so i understand i have to use routing instead of bridging, right?

i have commented the two lines for bridge and enabled routing in /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp

next i inserted a line:

vif    = [ 'ip=,type=ioemu' ]

into my /etc/xen/vm/woesxp file,

next i started the vm, and set the network settings in windows to be

the problem is I cannot ping each other, ie both from linux and from windows, I get something like host unreachable.

I have tried reading up about the networking in xen, and also tried googling xen routing, but i see the bridging technique is the one mostly discussed.

is there a way of solving my problem using bridging then? what i need is to ping each other (so that I can setup a samba share to share files, and also to rdesktop into the windows) and for the windows vm to access the internet

does anyone know of a good link that could help me, or any advice about which way i should go?
