Hello Andrei,

I'm assuming your network model is similar to the one described in
"Planning the installation guide" [1]: which means you have one physical
interface and one bridge per physical network. If your setup is different
please let us know.

You will simply need to create as many different networks as you need. For
each network you will need to specify:
- BRIDGE: the bridge interface of the KVM host you want the VM to be
connected to. With this field you will be able to choose if the virtual
network is connected either to the private network or to the public
network. Keep in mind, that the bridges should have the same name across
all the servers.
- RANGE: specify the range of ips you want. You can do it in three
different ways:
1. Add each individual IP to the network
2. Define a network by specifying the network address and the netmask. For
3. Define a network by specifying the IP start and IP end. For instance IP
Start:, IP End:

With the Sunstone web interface you will be able to enter the network
information as described above.

In the Virtual Machine template simply list the networks you want your VM
to be connected to:
NIC   = [ NETWORK_ID = 1 ] -- or by name -- NIC   = [ NETWORK = "group1"  ]
