I used 'rtl8139' as the vif model type on both two Windows DomU
instances and I am not able to ping each other directly. I also cannot
ping the Dom0 instance either from either of the DomU instances.

I only have one HVM cpu type machine at this time so cannot migrate one
of the DomU instance.

I'm going to try other vif types.
