OVH Additional IP in routed mode on public network interfaces


Jan 21, 2022
Hello ,

Recently we rented 3 dedicated servers type SCALE 4 , installed Proxmox 8.03, and Ceph Hyperconverged

The idea is to host some servers and get firewall in front of them , got additional IP , now i discovered that for those type of servers there is no virtual MAC as used before , instead the refereed me to an article with several steps which is in fact routed trough interface as shown below ,

I did all requested steps but still not working for me ,i attached my server interfaces file , if someone can have a look on it maybe i missed something.

Please advice
# network interface settings; autogenerated
# Please do NOT modify this file directly, unless you know what
# you're doing.
# If you want to manage parts of the network configuration manually,
# please utilize the 'source' or 'source-directory' directives to do
# so.
# PVE will preserve these directives, but will NOT read its network
# configuration from sourced files, so do not attempt to move any of
# the PVE managed interfaces into external files!
