Proxmox over Private Network

Feb 19, 2018
i have not found anything on my problem on the wiki and hope someone in the Forum might help me.

I have couple of Servers, each have an 10Gbit/s Uplink to the Internet and 10Gbit/s Private Network. Corosync and Ceph are each using their own private VLAN on the Private Network.

I can't figure out, how I can set the "internal" communication of the Proxmox servers - they seem to automatically choose the public IP for communication (API, SSH, ...). Is it possible, that internal Communication is going over a VLAN or the bridge? I don't want to allow external access to ssh - actually I don't want the ssh server even to listen on the public interface.

the api/ssh connections will go over the ip that is resolved by the hostname
