    Hi Chris I am currently testing with Proxmox,
    I have a project in mind on a cluster of firewall, but I have
    problem, the problem is how I can communicate with three isp’s point to point links.
    I have been looking for information on the web but have seen on this topic
    very few examples.
    This complicates the use point to point / 30 between the gateway provider and my vm or ct
    by the union with vmbrX, I think I could do this using snat and dnat,
    reading about dnat snat and I found your blog, congratulations well explained
    and is serving me see if I can do this project.

    I currently have this physical schema, I think that this scheme
    can be virtualized on Proxmox with HA

      Hello Gustavo,
      I would be glad to try and help you out, but from the formatting of the text in your post its kind of hard for me to understand what you are trying to do within Proxmox. Could you try to create an image showing the network/system layout you are trying to achieve?

    Hello Chris,

    Any chance you’re able to support the Aerohive AP130? I saw your work on the 121, and would love to try it on the 130.

    Thanks!
