VMs/Guest Hosts cannot access the internet ( 2021 )

Dec 25, 2021
So I have this set up:


I can ping other VMS on the same network but cannot access the internet. a few days ago I could when I set up a VM bride for testing purposes but now I cannot

I do think it is due to some routing issues any input would be recommended I do not know too much about iptables and have read tons of documentation on proxmox so please do not refer me to docs or tell me to RFTM cuz I have lol. unless it is a full solution to this specific problem

I do not have a DHCP server so I do manually set the IP addresses as well via ``sudo ifconfig <dev>``

this setup is on a Dell Optiplex with 32GB ram 2TBHDD one single nic as you can see in the set up up top plugged directly into my router
