Dear All,


I was just trying to create a virtual private network with 2 domU and a dom0


My dom0 is RHEL 5.2  and have static IP address. DomU’s are ubuntu 8. In the xen-config I enabled


network-script network-nat

vif-script              vif-nat


I edited the “interfaces” file in the domU to set the address as “10.0.0.x” (x as 1,2.. etc). I am able to getting the networking working in the domU’s but I am puzzled with one observation.


If I run “ping” on any domU to any IP to outside network machine or to any other domU’s address, it runs and I could see the reply of ping, BUT that console hangs while performing ping and I am not able to terminate the ping operation. The only resort remains is to shutdown the domU.


Please suggest if there is something more I should be doing or is it expected result.
