[SOLVED] Can't Login to TrueNAS VM Webpage

I got ProxMox installed on a Dell Poweredge r710 and setup a VM running TrueNAS on it. I setup TrueNAS to run on IP address 192.168.1.213. However, when I point my browser at this IP, I don't connect to anything. If I try to ping this address on either my desktop or via the ProxMox console, I get no response.

By default, here are my network adapters:
2: eno1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq master vmbr0 state UP group default qlen 1000
link/ether d4:ae: brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
altname enp1s0f0
3: eno2: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN group default qlen 1000
link/ether d4:ae: brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
altname enp1s0f1
4: eno3: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN group default qlen 1000
link/ether d4:ae: brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
altname enp2s0f0
5: eno4: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN group default qlen 1000
link/ether d4:ae: brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
altname enp2s0f1
6: vmbr0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state UP group default qlen 1000
link/ether 46:b4: brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
inet 192.168.1.212/24 scope global vmbr0
valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
inet6 fe80::/64 scope link
valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

The VM hardware is setup to use the vmbr0 bridge. Model is VirtIO. I tried disabling the firewall option to see if that was the cause to no avail.
I also tried setting up TrueNAS to use DHCP and it doesn't ever get an address, indicated both on the TrueNAS boot up screen and on my router.
I looked up various tutorials on YouTube showing how to install a TrueNAS VM into ProxMox and they all seem to just work after installation so I didn't get any hints there.

I'm not sure what to do from here to troubleshoot this so any suggestions or advice is appreciated.

Disclaimer: This is my first time ever booting up a server and using ProxMox or TrueNAS so some of these questions might be stupid. I have done some Googling but I don't necessarily understand all the technical advice.

Thanks.

What is cat /etc/network/interfaces returning?

Because sounds ok so far.

From the Proxmox side that all looks fine. Maybe a wrong network configuration inside TrueNAS?

So I realized I could spin up some more VMs to do some testing. I installed Ubuntu and DHCP worked fine and I was able to see the machine on the network. This prompted me to completely delete the VM instance for TrueNas and reinstall. Upon reinstallation, I was able to see TrueNas on the network. I never found out what was originally wrong with it.
