Re: [Xen-users] Re: number of ips

Anand Gupta wrote:
Hi Vu,

Actually both. I am basically offering vps services. So its critical
for my setup that users use only the ips i have assigned to their
domU. They shouldn't arbitrarily add ip series and start to use them.
Further i have some domU's where i have to add multiple ips for use
inside them.

Are the users just non-root users ? Or are you going to let them access their domU as root accounts so they have systems with all permissions ?

Non-root users cannot assign ip address, I believe.

Hi Nick,

Thanks for the reply. What if they are on different subnet ? And then
what stops a user inside domU to add any ip in that series (as long as
the ips are assigned and routable to the server) and start to use it ?

 Well if they are all on the same subnet and your using standard
bridging and using a linux domU you should be able to just bring
virtual interfaces.

ifconfig eth0:0
ifconfig eth0:1
ifconfig eth0:1

Hi Anand,

I just want to understand more about your problem. Do you want to be
able to have many IPs on domU or do you worry about users trying to add
too many IPs that can affect the system ?
