Hello Community! o/

I have Proxmox setup on an Intel Nuc, and I have been struggling to get Pi-Hole to work. Let me explain a bit of my setup, I am making use of VLANs for my home network. I have the primary network of the Proxmox on VLAN10, and the VM running Pi-Hole on VLAN 20 ( I have the VLAN aware setup on vmbr0, and I am able to access the VLANS of which I assign without issue.

Prior to this I stood up a VM, or a VM from a cloud template and installed Pi-Hole, made one small change which was 'permit from all origins' and that was all I needed to do aside from pointing all the devices on my home network to point to it for DNS reoslution. However, this no longer works; I went to Pi-Hole community to seek gudience but thought maybe I would come here as well.

To add, I have no firewalls enabled on the VM, this is also happening on LXC (Debian) as well as previously mentioned cloud template (also Debian). It would appear there is some sort of configuration I am missing in Proxmox, as Pi-Hole works in a virtual machine locally on my Mac...

Any tips? Suggestions? Would love the help. :)
Can you explain WHAT does not work anymore? Does ping work from client to pihole? Can you access wan from the clients ( for example? Is ip working but dns via pi not?

Please post the
vm config <vm-id>
please also post your
from the host AND the vm.
