[Lxc-users] Still can not get macvlan to work.

I mentioned this in an earlier posting that I was using the veth method
with bridges because I could NOT get macvlan to work.  Problem is that
the containers will come up and will talk on the network but the host
can not talk to any of the guest containers.  Ping doesn't work and
connections don't work.  Not IPv4 or IPv6.  I can connect to containers
from other systems (both IPv4 and IPv6) but not from the system that's
hosting them.  Someone suggested that the problem was an old bug that
they thought was fixed in more recent kernels.  But wasn't more

I just recently moved several of my test containers from my Fedora 11
engine to a newer 64 bit Fedora 12 system.  In the process, I thought,
what the heck, lets give macvlan another shot, so I reconfigured a
couple of the containers from veth to macvlan.  Same problem.  Latest
kernel from Fedora and same problem.

The Fedora 11 kernel: kernel-
The Fedora 12 kernel: kernel-

Anyone with thoughts or suggestions on what to try next?
