[SOLVED] Proxmox hangs when shutting down LXC

Hi all,

Just started using Proxmox and I'm having an issue when trying to shutdown an LXC running Ubuntu server 22.04, I lose network connectivity and web access to Proxmox.

I don't have a monitor connected to my server so the only way I can 'fix' this is by physically powering down via the power button.

Any ideas how I can find out and fix what's causing this?
Please share your Proxmox version (pveversion -v) and the container configuration (pct config followed by the container number). Check the Proxmox web GUI Syslog (or journalctl and scroll to the time of the problem) for any clues about the problem.
It was a complete noob mistake on my part, I setup ubuntu server with tailscale. On my desktop I had tailscale installed a few months ago and forgot about it, once I quit it I had connectivity to my server again.
