OK. But what if I (will) have a similar situation like described in the article ( http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/360 )? I somehow will have to route packages from outside to dumUs.
In our case, intranet traffic is routed via I guess that if we tell the router to route traffic to 10.12.<whatever> via that should solve some issues (if dom0 is set up correctly).

But I still don't know why domUs can't ping their own ethernet interfaces, nor the other hosts connected to the same xenbridge.

Xenbridge is a virtual device behaving similar to a switch?

This will force you to add a static route to every system in your intranet
to reach the testhosts, because they would try to reach them without using
the router (in fact they are in their local subnet).

Use bridging in dom0 instead and it will work.
