I have created a linux container with debian-wheezy template. I am not able to have internet connectivity from the container. Below is my network configuration. Could some one please help me in figuring out the issue ? I can ping to the eth0 ip address in the container from the host. Similarly, i can ping from container to br0 ip address on the host.

/etc/network/interfaces on host
===============================

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
#allow-hotplug eth0
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp


# bridge configuration
auto br0
iface br0 inet dhcp
bridge_ports eth0 vethCE2
bridge_fd 0
bridge_stp off
bridge_maxwait 0

Let me know if you need any other details.

Thanks, Kiran Kumar
