[SOLVED] Networkconfig not correct?!


I installed PVE 8.0 today and entered the IP at the beginning and mene Fritzbox as gateway (

However, I do not reach the Fritzbox or the WI on my computer.

But in the FB the is shown as DHCP address (came after the installation).

I still do not see through with all the network interfaces. I have a HP ProLiant G6 DL 380 server with 4 LAN ports in the back. Stuck in the first one.

In my /etc/network/Interfaces file it looks like this now:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto enp3s0f1
iface enp3s0f1 inet manual

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet static
    bridge-ports enp3s0f1
    bridge stp off
    brifge-fd 0
iface enp2s0f0 inet manual

iface enp2s0f1 inet manual

iface enp3s0f0 inet manual

Can someone help me further?

How do I know which interface is which port, if they have such funny names?
From Proxmox host start a # ping and plug the ethernet cable from port 1 through 4 and see which port has connection to the FB.
