Summary

In this chapter we explored three different ways of configuring networking when using Xen:

  • Bridged networking: Connects two network segments by using a network bridge and utilizes the hardware MAC addresses.
  • Routed networking: Dom0 becomes the central point that routes all of the traffic for the guest domains.
  • VLAN with Network Address Translation: Dom0 uses NAT to send requests to a Virtual Local Network.

In the next chapter, we are going to examine the various storage options that are available when creating guest domains with Xen.
