[PVE-User] Simulate disconnected network cable

Hello, Folks -

I am playing with ProxMox for the first time and I am really impressed!

But - I am coming from a virtualbox background, and have not found in
proxmox a way to simulate a disconnected network cable to a KVM machine
like I can with a VirtualBox VM. Am I missing something? I am trying to
mirror our physical pfsense firewall to a virtual machine and it runs great
- I tested it this morning and the virtual firewall performance was
indistinguishable from the real box. When I make changes to the physical
machine I would like to update the config on the virtual machine, too,
however, I can't bring the firewall VM up on the network because there is
already a real machine on the network with the same IP addresses in use. Is
there a way around this?

Thanks, and again - ProxMox is amazing!

Mark
