I was using KVM, and having the exact same issue after going through the bridging guide. What I had to do was go to my OVH dashboard - go to the 'Manage IPs' section, click the gear next to the IP I wanted to use and choose 'Add a Virtual Mac.' I selected 'OVH' as the type. When the IP showed up (it took a couple minutes) - I had to go into my virtual machine setup and set my VMs mac address to the mac address from my dashboard.

Then, after a reboot of the guest, it all worked.

Hopefully that helps!

ok so.... XEN is up, Ive configured 1 VM, went through the bridgeing guide.... makes 0 sense to me, and still no network from my VM

primary XEN ip 46.105.117.124

ip block 164.132.218.192/27 assigned to the server
164.132.218.192/27
Network IP :164.132.218.192
Broadcast IP :164.132.218.223
Gateway IP :164.132.218.222
Netmask :255.255.255.224

i tried the guide with a ubuntu based vm so i edited

/etc/network/interfaces

with the following

auto lo eth0
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
address 164.132.218.192
netmask 255.255.255.255
broadcast 164.132.218.223
post-up route add 46.105.117.124 dev eth0
post-up route add default gw 46.105.117.254
pre-down route del 46.105.117.124 dev eth0
pre-down route del default gw 46.105.117.254

as i read in the docs, rebooted an no networking to or from the VM... any ideas? see something wrong with this config?

Thanks
