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.
