Install Debian as per the first two pages of the Debian "Perfect Setup", and then follow the Xen tutorial.

Don't worry about Exim, it is the default MTA on Debian. You can go on. If you want to replace it with Postfix later on, you can do the steps described here: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_debian_sarge_p4

Default xen howto--static ip

I connect by dhcp but my ip in my ethernet router is 192.168.1.64 this then connects me to a static ip from my ISP.

What my question is should my network/interfaces
look like this

starting wih
address 192.168.1.64(this is the ip IN MY ROUTER)
or

address 88.96.109.71 (my actual static ip address FROM isp)

and the rest of the lines as per the status page IN my router

address 88.96.109.71 (my actual static ip address)?
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.0.0
broadcast 192.168.1.255
gateway 62.3.83.5



THANKS

Your virtual machines are in a local network behind a router, right? Then you should give them IP addresses from your local network that differ from your router's local IP adress, i.e. do not use 192.168.1.64 as it is already taken by your router. You could use 192.168.1.65 instead if it is free.

Default OR may be someting like this might ok

ce eth0 inet static
address 192.168.1.50
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.0.0
broadcast 192.168. 1.255
gateway 192.168.1.1 (LOCAL IP ADDRESS)

dhcp RANGE 1.64 to 1.254

but the address in the router stays at 192.168.1.64

Try this:

Code:
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        address 192.168.1.50
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        network 192.168.1.0
        broadcast 192.168.1.255
        gateway 192.168.1.64

Default xen howto--static ip

Many thanks for your post.

I tried what you said and in worked ok
etc/init.d/networking was a success.

in reslove.conf

the wording I changed to
search server

the original nameservers were
212.23.6.100
212.23.3.100
192.168.1.1

i changedthat to
212.23.6.100
212.23.3.100

when doing apt-get update could not resolve
so
changed to
212.23.6.100
212.23.3.100
192.168.1.64

no joy could not resolve

212.23.6.100
212.23.3.100
192.168.1.50

no joy then

212.23.6.100
212.23.3.100
192.168.1.1

113 no route to host

i noticed that the IPV6 over IPV4 tunneling driver loaded.

I was able to do apt-get remove
exim4 exim4-base lpr nfs-common portmap pidentd pcmcia-cs
pppoe pppoeconf ppp pppconfig

any ideas about resolv

qiu

ps also i did echo xstation.4096.net > /etc/hostname
/bin/hostname -F /etc/hostname
