Hello Proxmox experts,

I can't address my issue so I'm here to ask your help. I have Proxmox 8.0.3 running on my bare metal HP server and inside it I have configured one ubuntu container that runs my internal DNS server using Bind9. All is configured as expected, so from my windows home pc I can ping the names of the VM and can see the name of the DNS server if I run an nslookup, so the zone and the reverse lookup zone are working correctly. My problem is that if I try to login to the VMs using the name, I can see the login screen, I can insert the credentials but after clicked enter, I can see an infinite loading and I can't access to the VM. For example this's the problem on my eve-ng VM:

If I try to login using the IP, I can access without problemes.
My question is: can someone point me out where could be the problem? I don't think that the configuration of the DNS is the problem since I can reach the VM using the DNS name.
