How To Enable Networking In Xen Guests On Hetzner’s New EQ Servers (Debian Lenny)

This tutorial shows how you can enable networking in Xen guests (domU) on Hetzner’s new EQ servers.
With the new EQ servers, you can get up to three additional IPs that
are in the same subnet as the server’s main IP. The problem is that
these additional IPs are bound to the MAC address of the host system
(dom0) – Hetzner’s routers will dump IP packets if they come from an
unknown MAC address. This means we cannot use Xen’s bridged mode, but
must switch to Xen’s routed mode where the host system (dom0) acts as
the gateway for the guests.
