So the situation is:

  * VM1 has a floating IP and can be reached via floating IP
  * VM1 can ping VM2
  * VM2 can't ssh VM2

Useful additional information you may have gathered already:

  * Does the ssh client issue any error message, and which?
  * Is an sshd running on VM2?
  * If yes, any error in the sshd log? I.e., does VM2 receive anything
    at all, and how does it process what it receives
  * Any /outgoing /connectivity problems from VM2?

Other things to do or check:

  * Use debug options when running the ssh client and sshd
  * packet tracing on both VMs
  * ssh to VM2's private IP from the DHCP server's namespace
  * When you ping VM2, are you sure it's really VM2 that responds?
    Perhaps something else has the same IP, or even MAC.
    You can check that by tracing ICMP on VM2.
