Hehe, nah. Server itself is now running CentOS7. Inside there's a VM that is running Win 8.1. I have some service bots that only run on Win8.1 and up, so that's why one of the VMs is Windows.

Ye it was behind NAT, but still nothing.
Nevermind though anymore. The moment I saw it is unable to install CentOS 7 properly I trashed it all and just installed CentOS7 on the server and I'm using their VM manager. Installed Win8.1 there and internet was present by default without a hassle.

Installed the XenServer 6.5 on a dedicated server. Now I've been trying to get internet connection to a VM running Win8.1 and it just does not work. The only way I can get internet on that VM is when I change the MAC address of VM device to the one that XenServer has, which is bridged with eth1, but that causes massive lag even to the XenServer, which is probably the result of packetlosses. It does say in the description that I should set MAC addresses of VM devices into the values I've supposedly obtained from OVH, but I have none? I did install xs-tools on Windows 8.1, it changed the adapter, but still no internet.
It can't be that complicated. How can I get internet to my VM?
