Network questions on


Apr 25, 2019
Hi Proxmox.
Just installed my Proxmox PVE - for see if it can replace my VMẃare ESXi

But Its only a little server at home - where I got 2x4NIC PCI cards - one IPMI and 2 NIC onboard
My Setup is like this
My LAN - - Would like 4NIC in Bond
My DMZ - - Woulds like 4 NIC in Bond

Both Vlan goes to My Router - and traffic are allowed between specific machines.

I would like to dedicate 1 PCI NIXC for each Zone
I got the IPMI and Adnministration Interface up and running - but having some issue regarding the NIC.
I'm creating a Bond on Each PCIcard - and connect a Bridge to it.
But My Administration Interface ( Which only runs internal in LAN) cannot connect to DMZ zone

So actually I'm a little in doubt regarding the default gateway ?
If I set it on LAN zone - I cannot set a gateway in DMZ and visa verse.
The main problem is my BackupNAS - which I allso have ISO files etc on - which is placed at

What would be the rigth proxmox way to do this kind of setup !
