Got it, thanks! Can't the route be added using a front-end IP address
instead on the host though ? I just tried that on a Xen system and it
seems to work. Perhaps I'm not understand the exact topology on the
routing case. So in my case I have the backend without any IPv4 or
IPv6 interfaces, the guest has IPv4, IPv6 addresses and even a TUN for
VPN and I can create routes on the host to the front end by not using
the backend device name but instead using the front-end target IP.
