Thank you. However, I am trying to engineer a hosting environment where
each ip address would be a dedicated NAT. I would like to use the Proxmox
hardware node to do all the accounting of ip traffic of each VM guest which
will then feed to a centralized server. My theory is that this eliminates
performance issues upstream of taking care of this. I have most of this
working. Since you cannot reach inside of a guest KVM, I need to find
another way using the hardware node bridge which is using iptables if
possible. I am sure it can be done. I just haven't figured it out yet.
