Hey Josh, That was the right question to ask for me to see what I missed before. VCL sets up the default gateway with eth1 (the typical public network), but in my instance I currently only have eth0 to work with. I changed the Iface to eth0 and I got Internet. So my new question is, until they set me up the other network, how can I make it so that VCL assigns the default gateway to eth0 during setup?
