Summary: how to configure the netplan on a host machine to create a bridge (with a static IP address) that would be used on guest virtual machine (shall be accessible from a local lan).
I am using Ubuntu 17.10, 32 bit. nplan 0.32~17.10.1.
I am trying to configure a linux virtual container that should be accessible from the local network.
But I am failing to configure a bridge on host machine with the nplan.
I have tried to follow the following guide with no luck:
The guide configures a host system with two NICs. My host machine has a single interface.
I am still dealing with the nplan configuration on my host machine. My nplan config on host machine is the following:
network: version: 2 renderer: networkd ethernets: ens32: dhcp4: no dhcp6: no addresses: [10.0.0.247/24] gateway4: 10.0.0.138 nameservers: addresses: [10.0.0.138,18.104.22.168,22.214.171.124] bridges: br0: interfaces: [ens32] dhcp4: no dhcp6: no addresses: [10.0.0.248/24] parameters: stp: false forward-delay: 0
after 'netplan apply' on host machine I can resolve google.com, but I can not ping:
ping google.com PING google.com (126.96.36.199) 56(84) bytes of data.

When I remove the complete section 'bridges:' from the nplan config I have to reboot the computer to get rid of the bridge (netplan apply is not enough - why?).
After the reboot, I can ping google.com.
Any help with the nplan configuration (on host and also on virtual guest) would be very welcome.
