I reaching out to you because I need your advice related to my network configuration on my server. I have installed LXD 4.0 and I noticed that this version comes with network routed. In the past I had to make a Bridge (Host-Shared Bridge) on my network card to provide Public IPs to my containers since MACVLAN can’t communicate containers with Host and vice versa.
Now I want to make more efficient my configuration taking advantage of this new concept (routed)
Before to do that I have some questions:
routed networking is more efficient than host-shared Bridge referring to resources consumption and speed?
Do I have to make extra rules on IPtables in my Host to forward the inbound traffic from Internet to reach each container?
When I use routed mode what is the advantage to share the host’s MAC address? How about Bridge mode, this doesn’t?
Can Bridge and routed coexist on the same server to provide Bridge mode to Windows Machines and routed mode to containers?
Can I use this new concept to provide routed mode to KVM Machines?
I appreciate any advice.
Thanks in advance.
