    Hello Dear users ,

    I'm trying to configure a hetzner's failover IP in Proxmox VE (4.4) with these configuration:

    auto vmbr2
    iface vmbr2 inet static
    address <MY-IP>
    pointopoint <MY-IP>
    gateway <MY-IP>
    bridge_ports eth0
    bridge_stp off
    bridge_fd 1
    bridge_hello 2
    bridge_maxage 12

    But , Problem is I cannot use failover IP on virtual machine , because it's set on Host (Proxmox main server). I mean when I try set on VM it doesn't get connect or even When I try connect to failover ip via SSH it will connect to Host not the VM.

    Is there any solution for it ?

    I do not have a single failover IP (and will only have subnets), but this is what I have done for a ordinary subnet (you can failover a subnet via hetzners webinterface). I use routed mode, because I do not have to configure a lot and do not need to specify mac addresses with hetzner beforehand, so I use this config:

    auto vmbr0
    iface vmbr0 inet static
            bridge_ports none
            bridge_stp off
            bridge_fd 0
    I have a bridge with my first subnet IP and all VMs have IPs in that subnet and on that bridge which is NOT connected to the outside world via bridge, but by routing. Maybe something similar should work for you too.
