i Solved it

last reply made by me has the solution

Hi

So i cant get my linux vms to have internet access on my hetzner box.
If i try a windows vm they have stable and good connection it seems to be only linux.

I tried many distros, Ubuntu centos and debian.

im using hetzner subnets for my vms as a vmbr0 device

Code:
auto vmbr0

iface vmbr0 inet static

  address [First useable ip from subnet]

  netmask 255.255.255.240

  bridge_ports none

  bridge_stp off

  bridge_fd 0



I hope you guys know a way to solve this issue

I'd be very surprised if it was an operating system problem that made Linux VM performance worse than Windows. As first step, it would make sense to really measure this. That means, running something like iperf3 between VMs and VM & Proxmox VE host

Its more like, when the vm with linux connects it has internet for a few seconds and then it no longer works until i restart the network interface (guest).

could it be an IP address conflict or so?

dont think so no other vm is running on the ip and the ip doesnt respond to ping when vm is offline
after restarting the network 1605534855178.png
after the 7 ping it stopped
I can ping the host without problems

can you post the output of following commands from your VM:
Code:
ip a
ip r
cat /etc/network/interfaces

how have you configured the ubuntu VM network? it seems wrong. is this a NATted setup or with an additional IP?

maybe you can try traceroute 1.1.1.1 and post the output here (my guess is this is a routing issue)

if you are using NAT setup then your ubuntu VM should have an IP for the internal subnet from your host bridge.

for example if you defined the bridge like so:
Code:
auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet static
        address 192.168.1.1/24
        bridge-ports none
        bridge-stp off
        bridge-fd 0

then your ubuntu VM network configuration should be something like,
Gateway: 192.168.1.1
IP: 192.168.1.10/24

i don't know how you configured it exactly because you didn't post your full /etc/network/intefaces from your PVE host.

the config from the host, i think im running bridge

Code:
### Hetzner Online GmbH installimage

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
iface lo inet6 loopback

auto enp98s0f0
iface enp98s0f0 inet static
  address 94.130.71.2
  netmask 255.255.255.192
  pointopoint 94.130.71.1
  gateway 94.130.71.1
  # route 94.130.71.0/26 via 94.130.71.1
  # up route add -net 94.130.71.0 netmask 255.255.255.192 gw 94.130.71.1 dev enp98s0f0

iface enp98s0f0 inet6 static
  address 2a01:4f8:10b:348c::2
  netmask 64
  gateway fe80::1

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet static
  address 178.63.114.16
  netmask 255.255.255.248
  bridge_ports none
  bridge_stp off
  bridge_fd 0

178.63.114.16 where does this IP come from? why don't you use a private IP range here instead?

this is likely causing routing errors...

Solved it with this configuration:
Code:
network:
  version: 2
  renderer: networkd
  ethernets:
    ens18:
     dhcp4: no
     addresses: [IP_OF_SUBNET/32]
     gateway4: GATEWAY
     nameservers:
       addresses: [8.8.8.8]
     routes:
       - to: GATEWAY/32
         via: 0.0.0.0
         scope: link

Thanks! This also fixed connectivity for me with an OVH dedicated server.
