Setting Network Rate/Maximum Network Speed causes 'Ping failed'

Hi there,

I have been using Cloudmin for a few days now, and am finding it rather good. However, I am currently having a problem when setting the Maximum Network Speed on the Resource Limits page of a VM. If the network speed is set to ‘Unlimited’ it works fine, but if I set it to anything other than unlimited it doesn’t work, and the VM says ‘Ping failed’

The host machine is running CentOS, and I am using Xen.

Does anybody have any insight into this?


What limit did you enter? Something really low like 1 bit / second could cause ping to fail … a more reasonable limit would be 1 Mbps.
