Exit network for 10.10.x.x

I want a Truenas server, but I want to address it 10.10.x.x. It doesn't work and I don't know what to add in /etc/network/interfaces as routing. Do you have any idea how to route it from the network to 10.10.x.x?

Hi, what you want can be achieved by adding an additional VM as a router to route packets from one subnet to another. I do this in many of my lab setups for isolation and testing purposes. Something like the below might help

1 - ProxMox Server - (LAN1) (LAN2)
2 - TrueNAS vnic-1 (LAN2)
3 - pfSense/OPNsense
vnic-1 - 192.xxx.xx.xx (WAN)
vnic-2 192.168.2.xx (LAN1)
vnic-3 (LAN2)

Router Firewall Rules:
WAN (Can be enabled or disabled and connected to the internal LAN that can access external resources)
LAN 1 allow source network (LAN1) ports required to destination (LAN2)
LAN 2 allow source network (LAN2) ports required to destination (LAN1)

If your Proxmox server has a secondary Ethernet port you can create a bridge and from there create additional networks for use or VLANs. Have a look at this tutorial that I just found for a quick overview. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljq6wlzn4qo

Best of luck!
Wow, you confirm what I've just read and that it works. I need to use a firewall basically. But you summarize even better!
