Subject Re: Public IPs on Guest VMs within CloudStack 4.2.0

Create share network with your ip ranges and add vm nic to in the share network.

> If you are creating isolated network with your /27 cidr and deploying vm in that , default
gateway on the vm will always points to ip address configured on the virtual routers guest
interface. So for the vms to point to the gateway in /27 cidr, create a shared network and
deploy vm in that.

> I have one IPv4 /27 for Public IPs and that's working fine.  Now what I want to do is
assign a live IP address from another /27 to a Guest VM, which appears to work but can't actually
touch the default gateway.

nodes (for A/B redundancy) by my upstream provider.  I can ping the two VRRP routers, I can
see the VM has the proper IP address, netmask, and default gateway; and I can configure the
VM with a proper IP config which never finds the default gateway IP.  The arp cache sees the
local MAC address and incomplete for the gateway.

router?  If so, how does THAT route out to the world?

which has the same upstream infrastructure situation.  Same lack of functionality there.
> So how do I configure my Guest real IP netblocks?  Is it okay to be looking for a default
gateway IP on a my provider's core router or do I need to have them statically route that
netblock to something like the cloudstack management host?
