Yes +1 to that. For OpenVZ you just let it use default 255.255.255.255 mask, it is routed via your server.

The gateway needs to be the same gateway as they physical machine the VM is sat on.

Hi Neil,

I have tried this, does it need to be the GW of the server that has the original RIPE network, or the GW of the server that the VPS resides on?

Thanks,
Danny

You use your servers gateway address, so yours sever IP but change the last for to .254

If you correct it then you will not receive any further emails from us.

could be that the subnet mask and network gateway aren't configured correctly. If they aren't correctly setup for IPFailover addresses, that will throw this sort of auto-email from OVH support
