I'm quite new to openvswitch, so if I oversee smth. very obvious please 
dont't be to harsh ;-).

Till now I used standard linux bridging in my XEN-Environment. Using the 
'net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-...' Kernel Parameters I was able to firewall 
bridged traffic per XEN-Guest, defining seperate chains per DomU.

Is smth. similar possible with openvswitch too, ie. having a 'central' 
iptables firewall in XEN Dom0 handling the rules for bridged/switched 
traffic targeting various XEN DomUs?

Thanks for your help,
best regards,
