I am still using Proxmox 3.4 (3.4-16/40ccc11c) with OpenVZ and venet, in various servers in OVH. And in a new dedicated server, I cant ping my only container.

The public IP of the HN is 158.69.241.xxx and for the container 149.56.179.xxx

Routing table
Code:
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
149.56.179.xxx  0.0.0.0         255.255.255.255 UH    0      0        0 venet0
158.69.241.0    0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U     0      0        0 vmbr0
0.0.0.0         158.69.241.254  0.0.0.0         UG    0      0        0 vmbr0

/etc/network/interfaces
Code:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet static
        address 158.69.241.xxx
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        broadcast 158.69.241.255
        gateway 158.69.241.254
        bridge_ports eth0
        bridge_stp off
        bridge_fd 0

Netfilter configuration
Code:
$ iptables -t nat -L && iptables -t filter -L && iptables -t mangle -L

I entered in the console of my container and realized that the networking service were not running.

[ Solution ]

Step 1: access the container console with:
Code:
vzctl enter <id>

Step 2: inside it, check the network config with:
Code:
ifconfig -a

Step 3: if venet0:0 doesn't appear, restart your network with:
Code:
service networking restart
