I am running Proxmox 4.2 fully patched with two KVM systems. The first is running Windows 10 Pro and the second is running FreeNAS 9.10. Each of the KVM's can be pinged by the Proxmox host and any other devices on the LAN. However, the two CANNOT ping (or any other network traffic) each other. They are both using bridged networking to vmbr0 and have static IP addresses assigned.

Have tried looking around but do not see why this is being blocked. Suggestions?

To follow-up on my own post and hopefully help somebody in the future the issue was using the virtio network drivers. I changed it to E1000 on both and viola after setting the IP addresses back up everything worked great between the two KVM machines and the rest of the network.
