Hi I've installed OpenVZ on a Scientific Linux 6.4 base. This itself is a guest running on Hyper-V.

The host system has full network connectivity with ipv4 and ipv6.

The host has an eth0 and a bridge br0 and the bridge is connected as above with ipv4 and 6 to LAN and Internet. It's address is

The guest on the other hand which has eth0 and IP has network connection only to the host. I can ping the host but nothing on the LAN or the internet.

The host has a veth100.0 device on the functioning br0 bridge and this is as I understand it correct for a setup where you want host and guests on your own wider LAN.

I've disabled iptables on host and guest by service iptables stop. Still doesn't work so it doesn't seem like a firewall issue.

All my tools are the latest. What is the problem?

Tcpdump appears to see traffic on eth0 in the guest... Sample output:

root@proxysrv /]# tcpdump -i eth0
tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol decode

Seems like a lot of dropped packets but I know nothing about the tool apart from what I read in the sticky at the top.
