Dear community,

I have two Proxmox 4.1 with latest patches and LAG (openvswitch) working.
Both are attached to a Layer 2 switch.
There is also a simple 1Gb Router with minimal vlan support, so I don't want to use the inter-vlan routing anymore, because the throuput is very, very low.

Is it possible to configure vxlan/gre over a LAG?
Is it possible to configure a layer 3 switch in proxmox via openvswitch to route to next hop?
Can I firewall all these setups?

I'm going to avoid to set up (another) VM-Linux firewall/router on the proxmox boxes, that routes the vlans.

Where do I find examples and is it possible to configure this with openvswitch shipped with proxmox?

Could someone give me a hint please.

Thank you in advance.
