Dear Alexandre,

Thanks for your answer. That's true that it should be better to keep all 
interface in the case of a problem.

Then can I ask you one more question ?
In proxmox I have 8 ethx, and so 8 vmbrx. But I can add the gateway only 
on one vmbr, on other vmbr Proxmox said that I can set the same gateway. 
Is it normal ? This is not really important because right now everything 
is working... but as I said I would like to understand a little bit 
better all the network things in virtualization..
And so if someone has good network in virtualization 
examples/tutorial..... I didn't find good stuf on the web for the moment.

All the best

The software said "Requires Windows 2000, Windows XP, or better,..."
So I installed Linux Ubuntu !
