Xen Server Questions

  • Hi,
    I've been running pfsense in Xen server for quite a while and have a couple of questions I'm hoping someone may be able to help with.

    1. I don't seem to be able to use the traffic shaper
    2. I can't use vlans ?? it shows nothing under Only VLAN capable interfaces will be shown.

    If someone would be kind enough to help me get these functions working I would really appreciate it :-)


  • Anyone???

  • i did not test traffic shaper since i don't use it in my environement

    For VLAN, the only thing you can't do is a trunk on Virtual NICs.
    You will have to create a separate network on your XenServer (XenCenter Networking tab) for each VLAN.
    Then, add a network card to your PFSense for each VLAN (Each network created earlier).
    After that, you can create trunk using the NICs of you XenServer (XenCenter NICs tab).
    You can also do a trunk with a LAGG under XenServer for more network performance depending of your setup.
    Don't forget to configure your switch accordingly.

    That'S the way i'm able to make VLANs for in a clear manner with the logic of XenServer.

    EDIT: working with and without Xen-toolson PFSense
