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>

Try this one -- it works in 'my' subnet:

<filter name='isolatedprivatevlan-vdsm' chain='ipv4'>
     <filterref filter='clean-traffic'/>
     <rule action='drop' direction='out' priority='10'>
         <mac match='no' dstmacaddr='$GATEWAY_MAC'/>
     </rule>
</filter>
Thanks,
Now it is blocking the traffic but I can't get traffic to the gateway as
well...
That's odd. Can you ping the gateway from the VM? Is it typically
ping-able? Are you sure you specified the correct MAC addresses --
check with 'arp -n' on a host in the same subnet and see what it
shows for the gateway (ping it if you don't see an entry).

It's working only when I remove the line
     <filterref filter='clean-traffic'/>
from the filter...

While you ping the gateway, can you re-add the above line to the filter?
