No Route To Host, Suggestions?

I am having a bit of trouble getting a guest vm to be able to connect to the internet...

I have the following for my NIC....

iface eno1 inet manual

I also have a bridge which is what the guest vm is connected to

auto vmbr0
bridge-ports eno1
bridge-stp off
bridge-fd 0
bridge-vlan-aware yes
bridge-vids 2-4094

My guest network config looks like

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

I can ping from the host no problem, but when I try on the guest, I get "No Route To Host"

any ideas, or suggestions on how I should set this up?

For instance, is there another way to setup connectivity to the guest besides the bridge? or maybe somehow have proxmox issue an ip to the guest and use the host as the gateway? any ideas at all are greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Hrmm i've not played with bridge-vids but from the brief reading, I just did you are essentially creating a trunked bridge. Meaning you need to tag the vlans within your vm by using eth0:2 for example or tag them within the VM network configuration section to be tagged.
