Finally, I succeed on networking!! 

 

Thanks for your answers!

 

Firstly, I made a real bridge as xenbr2.

Then, I made a fake bridge as xenbr2.100 with tagging 100.

And I attached eth2 to xenbr2.100 with tagging 100.

 

And I did same thing to another server.

 

After that, they can communicate!

 

Thank you all!

Yes, for eth1 and eth2, I set tag field only. And empty trunks field in Port table.

 

Generally you want to set the tag field on the interface that you are using to access the switch, which would be one you set an IP address on.  The Ethernet interfaces should not have the tag field set because they need to trunk all vlans (i.e. actually carry the tagged packets).
