SYS dedicated IP s and their gateways

Is it working? From the subnetmask you see, that without routes, you will not be able to reach the gateway of the server from your fail-over ip.

So network config in my case and also in case of other OVH customers looks horrible. From my understanding, I'm I'm getting a block of IP addresses from my provider, then it must belong to the same subnet. Also in this case my Linux instances under ESXi aren't working without additional static routes. It's horrible as well.

Ok, I set 255.255.255.0 mask

You are getting no different to anyone else, the same as I've been getting for the last 6 years, agreed it can be a PITA but its still workable.

Ok, I set 255.255.255.0 mask and as I expected I got the same error. I'm a bit confused with that, because OVH providing my with different IPs from different subnets but with one single gateway. This is absurd. What do you think?

Yes, it works but why I can point a gateway address of OVH router? I thought that ESXi is transparent in accordance to its VMs. Also, I;m getting the next warning in Windows:

I'm not sure about Linux VMs, I need to test them as well. But this error looks a bit unprofessional according to network standards. Right?

The gateway is the first three octets of your physical machine's IP (not the failover IP) ending in .254

So if your physical machine is 123.100.200.1 then your gateway is 123.100.200.254

Recently I ordered a few dedicated IPs, today I got a few more. My question is, I want to assign these IPs to my VMs and almost each hypervizor asks abut default gateway for IP. My IP addresses seems are belongs to different subnetworks if I'm correct. So where can I find which IP belongs to which gateway, to point them in my network settings? According to this article http://help.ovh.co.uk/bridgeclient I need to put .254 at the end of my FO IP, but it must work in e.g. Citrix without additional routes in OS etc. if I assign MAC (which was generated via SYS panel), which I added to the network card of VM.

Thanks
