[libvirt] nwfilter - limit VM traffic to specific mac address



Hi,

I want to limit VM traffic to a specific MAC address, ie VMs cannot
traffic each other other then a specific gateway.

I am using custom nwfilter name: isolatedprivatevlan-vdsm.xml
located in /etc/libvirt/nwfilter/:

<filter name='isolatedprivatevlan-vdsm' chain='root'>
    <filterref filter='clean-traffic'/>
    <rule action='drop' direction='out' priority='500'>
        <mac match='no' dstmacaddr='$GATEWAY_MAC'/>
    </rule>
</filter>


VM1 domian xml portion:
<interface type="bridge">
    <mac address="00:1a:4a:16:01:53"/>
    <model type="virtio"/>
    <source bridge="red"/>
    <filterref filter="isolatedprivatevlan-vdsm">
        <parameter name="GATEWAY_MAC" value="00:00:0c:07:ac:00"/>
    </filterref>
</interface>


VM2 domian xml portion:
<interface type="bridge">
    <mac address="00:1a:4a:16:01:52"/>
    <model type="virtio"/>
    <source bridge="red"/>
    <filterref filter="isolatedprivatevlan-vdsm">
        <parameter name="GATEWAY_MAC" value="00:00:0c:07:ac:00"/>
    </filterref>
</interface>

        
in each VM (Fedora 15 LiveCD) I assign ip:
# ifconfig eth0 10.35.1.240 netmask 255.255.254.0
# route add default gw 10.35.1.1

vm2:
# ifconfig eth0 10.35.1.241 netmask 255.255.254.0
# route add default gw 10.35.1.1

but the filter is not working,
I can ping the VMs from each other,

Am I missing something?
Thanks,
Shahar Havivi.
