When using a lxc container in Proxmox it (sometimes) happens that Proxmox overrides the network config of the container and applies its own. In most cases this is contraproductive and not so easy to find out.

To stop this,¬† “touch /etc/network/.pve-ignore.interfaces” to tell Proxmox to not change the network configuration.
