Well, the netmask for the domU is 255.255.255.255 since the domU is
allocated a single official IP address and packets are routed to it from
It is a bit confusing, but my dom0 is 192.168.144.6/30 [ip address
changed for privacy]
My domU is 192.168.139.4/32 (single host)
Another domU is 192.168.139.128/29 (a few hosts)
There is a router in the ISP that routes the domU's via my dom0 "router".
The domU gateway is 192.168.144.6 which is outside the subnet mask of
the domU. But that should be legal right? Is this just some Centos/RHEL
network script that is not flexible enough? Obviously I can add the
/sbin/route add -net 0.0.0.0 netmask 0.0.0.0 gw 192.168.144.6
which works. Since these IP addresses and netmasks are official assigned
to me, I dont think it is proper to be using IP address outside the
range allocated to me. Does this make sense?
