On DomU all I need is a browser to work. I thought SOCKS proxy via Dom0
would be a quicker solution, though it's application layer. It is working
also - if I provide ip address of a website. However I do not know how to
make DNS requests go via ssh proxy. If I could do that I can browse from
DomU using SOCKS.
Ya, I messed a bit with that notion, except I used tinyproxy, and found
that the lack of DNS made it simpler to use NAT on DOM0. I suppose if you
installed a DNS cache server on DOM0 and pointed the guests there it
something like SOCKS or tinyproxy would function. I didn't have time to
mess around with that, and NAT ended up being simpler.
