I have VM Ubuntu 14.04 32bit running in VMware Workstation on Win 10.

I'm trying to set up the LXC container having its own IP address so I set the bridge interface in /etc/network/interfaces (tried static and dhcp):

 # interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
 auto lo   
 iface lo inet loopback 

 auto br0
 iface br0 inet dhcp
        bridge_ports eth0
        bridge_fd 0
        bridge_maxwait 0

But then I reboot it and have no internet on my host mashine Ubuntu.

--- 8.8.8.8 ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 0 received, +3 errors, 100% packet loss, time 1999ms
pipe 3

But it can connect to the router and I can ssh it from my main OS (win 10)

my host ifconfig:

I read all the similar posts but did not help. Any thoughts?

Sorry for the late reply, but just started writing in here.

I assume you have installed the bridge-utils via apt-get.

Edit the /etc/network/interfaces file. It should seem similar to this:

# Bridge between eth0 and eth1
auto br0
iface br0 inet dhcp
# For static configuration delete or comment out the above line and uncomment the following:
# iface br0 inet static
#  address 192.168.1.10
#  netmask 255.255.255.0
#  gateway 192.168.1.1
#  dns-nameservers 192.168.1.5
#  dns-search example.com
bridge_ports eth0
bridge_stp off
bridge_fd 0
bridge_maxwait 0

So quickly put, give your br0 the values originally handled by the eth0. Your eth0 should not contain any IP-information.

ifup br0
