I'm running a Debian Lenny dom0, with a custom 22.214.171.124 pv_ops kernel and Xen 4.0.1-rc3-pre. I use PCI passthrough to hand a PCI NIC to a FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE domU, which I use as my router/firewall for my network. When running in a full HVM configuration, this works fine. However, I recently tried out the XENHVM kernel (tweaked to include the em driver for my NIC). It worked as expected for all the other hosts on the network (my workstation, the laptop, etc). However, I cannot open a web page or any other TCP based session from the dom0. I can ping hosts on the internet, but I can't establish a TCP session with them. Has anyone else experienced something like this?
The WAN side of the dom0 uses the PCI passthrough'd em NIC, and the LAN side is bridged to another NIC on the dom0 to provide access to the network (both physical and virtual). Can anyone confirm if this might be resolved in a version more recent than 8.0-RELEASE? As an aside, I'd like to try this with a fully paravirtualized guest, but I can't confirm anywhere if FreeBSD has support for the PCI frontend driver so that I can pass my NIC to a PVM guest.
