Hello all!

I have missed pings from local network to openvz containers.

I tested the connection between the local network and proxmox host and are not missed packets.
I tested the connection between proxmox and the containers and are not missed packets.

But when I ping from local network to the containers I miss between 4% and 15% of packets.

The containers are configured in bridged mode.

tail -f /var/log/syslog throw this warnings and errors

Jun 21 15:34:24 pmlite snmpd [2506]: error on subcontainer 'ia_addr' insert (-1)
Jun 21 15:34:42 pmlite vmsvc [2363]: [warning] [guestinfo] Failed to get nic info.
Jun 21 15:36:29 pmlite kernel: eth0: received packet with own address as source address

I was looking for this errors in internet but I could not find a solution.

The versions:
Pve-manager / 3.4-16 / 40ccc11c (running kernel: 2.6.32-39-pve)

Tanks a lot!

There could be many reasons.

And your software version is out of support and very outdated, you should upgrade to a supported/current version of Proxmox VE.
