Hey guys!

So here is our config

A dedicated server at OVH.
Ipv4: for the proxmox host (also has 1 ipv6)
We also have /64 of ipv6.

So OVH blocks NDP, and does not give any Mac address for ipv6.

If we give an IPv4 for a container, we can use ipv6, since it will the ipv4 MAC address.

We want to try to give only an ipv6 to the lxc containers.

Is there a way in proxmox to have the containers use the proxmox host mac address?

Thanks for your time!

You have to route them and proxy the NDP requests (either directly by setting `proxy_ndp` on the outer bridge and adding the addresses to the neighbor proxy list via (`ip neighbor add proxy ...`), or by setting up `ndppd`).
