    and I noticed that the last update did add and ebtables.
    Selecting previously unselected package ebtables.^M
    Preparing to unpack .../24-ebtables_2.0.10.4-3.5+b1_amd64.deb ...^M
    I was running iptables.service and all the rules pve generated and I added myself are in there `iptables -L`.
    Now the iptables.service is not running anymore but the ebtables.service. Unfortunately the rules are empty and no connections are dropped anymore.

    If I add new rules in the WebUI the change is reflected in /etc/pve/nodes/<hostname>/host.fw, but not in ebtables nor iptables.

    Another side effect, I recognized is that NAT containers are not working anymore, is this intended?
    I would be ok with a change to ebtables, if the rules I specified in pve would still work, how can I fix this?

    same problem here.

    I was importing rules with this command:
    ebtables-restore < /root/scripts/ebtables.txt

    Now, after a few seconds, my rules disappears. No more filtering between my CTs :(

    @conrad784, ebtables runs in addition to iptables, if your iptables are empty there must be some other issue, you should check your rules and logs.
    @arteta, that's a different issue, you already had ebtables rules which now get replaced - please open a feature request on our bugzilla
