Hi Micheal,

The VMs cannot ping the other VMs.Also the bridge has been setup with the default delay etc.
I think what is wrong is the routing on host B. I ran a tcpdump on B and tried to ping A from
the VM. I can see the packets on B coming from the bridge but nowhere to be forwarded. 
Another point to note is that the interface with the required subnet (i.e. the subnet of the
VMs and the bridge IP addresses) is a virtual interface and not a physical card. The hosts
A,B and C actually belong to a diff subnet physically. But we want a new subnet for the VMs
and the virtual bridges. Any pointers towards how to setup such a config would be greatly
helpful. The end result we want is just that the VMs belong to a different subnet than the
physical hosts and still be able to ping each other and all the hosts.
